Inclusive Retirement Community is the Hottest Ticket in the Triangle

Community. Education. Culture. Engagement. Caring. Diversity.

These are the ingredients of Carol Woods’ secret sauce that makes it one of the country’s leading Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC). And its right in our backyard!

Named for the lush Carolina landscape that surrounds the community, Carol Woods is an accredited not-for-profit situated on 120 wooded acres in Chapel Hill. The community, which was founded in 1979 by a group of local residents who wanted to retire in comfort and style, attracts residents who want to be close to the superior cultural, educational, and medical resources our area offers.

According to Gretchen Likins, Director of Admissions and Public Relations at Carol Woods, CCRCs provide a continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing. These occur in a variety of settings, from the facility’s studio apartments to its 1- and 2-bedroom cottages and townhomes to its Early Acceptance Program.

An Important Announcement About SAGE Central North Carolina

The LGBT Center of Raleigh and SAGE Central North Carolina are joining together to share this important announcement.

An opportunity has arisen for SAGE Central North Carolina to expand its impact throughout the central portion of the state, and the LGBT Center of Raleigh supports SAGE’s decision to align with another organization. While the home base for SAGE will remain in Raleigh, it is expanding its reach throughout the Triangle and central North Carolina.

The LGBT Center will continue to offer programming for LGBTQ older adults, while SAGE will be able to expand its offerings through its core programs: education, advocacy, and programs to foster social interaction.

Our organizations will continue to collaborate, and we are currently looking at opportunities to provide joint programming that will augment one another’s efforts.

While more information from both organizations will follow in the coming weeks, we are sharing responses to anticipated frequently asked questions below.
