Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is 45 minutes south-east of Nashville and offers many of the benefits of city living with a slightly quieter pace of life. Of the roughly 146,000 people living here, around 14,000 are seniors, and the city provides numerous amenities to cater to its senior population. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department looks after numerous community assets, including the Washington Theatre, community centers and outdoor spaces, and multiple hospitals, including the St Thomas Rutherford Hospital, serve the local area. There is also a vibrant downtown and a Saturday farmers’ market for seniors to enjoy.

Compared to the national average of $4,481 for home care and $4,576 for home health care, Murfreesboro offers a substantial savings of $4,185 for both services, according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey.

Murfreesboro Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
