What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hopkinsville

Assisted living communities in Kentucky have to be certified by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living, an agency associated with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, located in Frankfort. This government agency also sponsors the Long-Term Care Ombudsman and provides services to the state’s disabled residents.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hopkinsville

  • Hopkinsville’s cost of living is 22.1% lower than the U.S. average and almost 7% lower than that of Kentucky. Seniors benefit from the area’s low-cost transportation and housing options, as well as competitive food prices. Residents tend to pay more for medical treatment here than in other parts of the state but this is likely because of its proximity to the Vanderbilt Medical Center, one of the country’s premier medical centers.
  • The city of Hopkinsville is considered a part of the Clarksville metropolitan area but even without this connection and its proximity to Nashville, Hopkinsville offers a wide range of activities for seniors. The pedestrian-friendly downtown is both attractive and engaging, with the Pennyroyal Area Museum being a popular destination due to its African American and military exhibits. There are also walking paths and trails scattered throughout the city that wind through local parks and the downtown area. 
  • Seniors have little trouble getting around the city, whether for medical appointments, errands or just for fun. The Hopkinsville Transit service offers bus service daily between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., traveling throughout the city and on the fringes of the Outer-belt multiple times each day with three separate routes. Drivers provide service to many off-route destinations by request and will otherwise divert up to 3/4 mile off route when notified 48 hours in advance of the need. Med Transit, Silver Swan and other companies offer low-cost or free transportation to medical appointments. 
  • Hopkinsville was rated the 15th most diverse city in Kentucky by Niche.com, although this seems to be more related to the age range and socioeconomic status than it does the ethnic diversity. The city’s sense of community is highly rated and there are a variety of culturally-relevant destinations that cater to minorities, including the African-American exhibit of the Museum of Hopkinsville and the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park.
  • Seniors in this area of the state generally benefit from high-quality health care. This is often accompanied by higher health care costs but the small increase in cost doesn’t take away from the benefits that access to new technology and treatments provide to local seniors. Vanderbilt Medical Center is just an hour away in Nashville, and the Jennie Stuart Medical Center is located in downtown Hopkinsville.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Hopkinsville
