Tennessee Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Tennessee is a state located in the Southern United States, attracting retirees with its easy lifestyle and low cost of living. It is known as the "Volunteer State", a nickname it earned during the War of 1812, in which volunteer soldiers from Tennessee played a prominent role, especially during the Battle of New Orleans. The capital is Nashville and the largest city is Memphis.
Home to the Appalachian Mountains in the east and the Mississippi River in the west, Tennessee is full of retirement-friendly, hidden gems. The cost of living is 11% below the national average, and the state also has no income tax.
Aside from the state's natural beauty, Tennessee is also known for being the birthplace to a greater variety of American music than anywhere else in the country. Nashville is home of the Grand Ole Opry and global headquarters to all things country and western, while Memphis has the blues (and Graceland, the mansion that was home to Elvis Presley).
There are many attractive retirement communities in towns such as Crossville, also known as the golf capital of Tennessee.
