    With its attractive landscape and four beautiful seasons, North Carolina is a favored retirement location. Springtime is rich with blossoms of cherry trees, Bradford pears, crepe myrtles and a variety of day lilies, tulips and daffodils. Fall is resplendent with a palette of beautiful autumn leaf colors. Winter sometimes offers a ground cover of snow, which usually melts by noon. Summer is often balmy—wonderful weather to enjoy the out-of-doors. Glenaire’s Cary, NC location is optimal whether you are looking for proximity to airports, the arts (including music and theatre), educational opportunities, retail shopping, hospitals or excellent health care. In fact, Cary has been recognized numerous times in national publications, recently by Money Magazine as one of the Best Small Cities in America, ranking fifth on the magazine's 2006 list of Best Places to Live. It has continually ranked among the top twenty safest places to live in America. Glenaire retirement community’s campus is comprised of a Community Center, an Aquatic and Fitness Center, forty- eight cottages, three apartment buildings, Assisted Living, and a sSkilled Nursing facility.

Each floor plan is spacious and provides the resident with an area for entertaining guests, a kitchen and personal laundry facility within each home. The apartments are connected to activity and service areas by enclosed hallways, full of windows bringing the outside in. Often, these connectors are used as a comfortable, scenic environment for walking inside without enduring the elements.
