    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bristol

    Bristol, a small city in Sullivan County, has a history that stretches back to the 1850s and a population of 26,666 people. Roughly 25 percent of the city's population is people over the age of 60, and to support the senior population, the region offers 35 assisted living communities. Two facilities are located in the city proper and 33 are located in the surrounding cities. All of these facilities are licensed by the Tennessee Department of Health, Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bristol

    • Bristol has hot summers, with highs around 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and cold winters with January lows in the mid-20s. The city receives about 43 inches of rain annually, which is just a few inches above the national average, and 12 inches of snow, which is less than half the nation’s average of 26 inches.  

    • Bristol is an affordable city where seniors can expect to spend about 4 percent less on health care costs and about 5 percent less on transportation costs.  

    • Tennessee’s sales tax rate is 5 percent on food items and 7 percent on other goods, and the Bristol sales tax rate is 2.25 percent, meaning that residents pay a relatively high sales tax of 7.25 percent on food and 9.25 percent on other goods. However, Social Security income and other sources of retirement income are not taxed at the state level, which may help offset the high sales tax and leave more money in the budget for assisted living costs.  

    • Bristol has a relatively high crime rate that is higher than both the state and national average.   

    • Public transportation in Bristol is provided courtesy of the Bristol Tennessee Transit, which operates six fixed routes throughout the city. Seniors receive half-priced fare, and ADA services are available for those who qualify.   

    • The Bristol area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bristol Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
