Tennessee offers some nice settings for retirement or assisted living nursing needs of senior citizens. Nashville, Memphis, or Knoxville regions and the surrounding burrows have historic culture built into a beautiful country atmosphere.
Nashville, centered in the northern half of the state is a central hub for all the interstate highways running through Tennessee. Many considered it a country music capital due to the popularity of the Grand Ole Opry and the famous country entertainers that performed there.
Knoxville is located on the East side of Tennessee and is only a few miles from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the southern Appalachian mountain range. Davy Crockett was born on the banks of Limestone Creek near Greeneville Tennessee, Northeast of Knoxville and not on a mountaintop as the song states.
Memphis in the Southwest corner of the state is more of an industrial center situated on the bank of the Mississippi River. This prime location makes it a major hub for river barges that moves commodities to and from all over the world. Some would say its popularity comes from Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley.
Between all of the larger cities, there are many smaller towns and prime locations for seniors with assisted living homes and nursing home care facilities. The general weather climate is humid subtropical summers and moderately cold winters. The higher attitude of the Appalachians mountain region brings a humid but cooler summer and colder winter conditions.
The average nursing home care cost is $65,877 a year, just under the national rate. Assisted living costs in the larger cities are average with the rest of the U.S. at $33,450 annually or $2,400 per month. The Division of Health Care Facilities is responsible for all types of health related facilities in Tennessee, including assisted living and nursing homes.
Tennessee has over 720,000 senior residents over 65 years of age. In the last few years, the metropolitan areas around the larger cities have become popular with retiring seniors. They wish to find quiet living locations, but with quality health care and support opportunities nearby.
Most all of the rural areas of Tennessee are near or in a rolling ridge, hilly countryside setting. Nevertheless, they do offer all of the amenities required for proper nursing care support for senior retirees looking for a nice place to live and enjoy pleasant surroundings.
