    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chattanooga

    Known as the "Scenic City," Chattanooga is surrounded by mountains and known for its easily accessible outdoor activities. The city has almost 180,000 residents, 15 percent of whom are 65 years or older.

    In Chattanooga and throughout Tennessee, assisted living facilities are classified as either assisted care living facilities (ACLF) or residential homes for the aged. The two options are somewhat similar, but ACLFs typically offer a higher level of care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chattanooga

    • The overall cost of living in Chattanooga is 8 percent lower than the national average, and many common staple purchases for seniors, such as utilities and groceries, cost less in Chattanooga than in a typical U.S. city. That said, seniors with high medical bills may want to look into Chattanooga's health care costs, which are listed as being substantially higher than average.
    • Compared to residents of most Southern cities, Chattanooga residents enjoy more distinctive seasons. Summertime temps peak in the high 80s, and winter lows average about 29. It does snow, but not much. The city averages about 2 inches of snow per year.
    • Chattanooga has a violent crime rate of 50.3 out of 100 (100 is worst) and a property crime rate of 83 out of 100 . Safety-conscious seniors may want to be aware that these numbers are significantly higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
    • The air quality in Chattanooga is about 10 points lower than the national average. This difference, while not substantial, is worth noting for seniors with asthma or other breathing difficulties.
    • The Chattanooga area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Erlanger, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Chattanooga is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
