What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clarksville

Only 7.8 percent of the 153,205 people who call Clarksville home are 65 years of age or older, but those seniors have five options for long-term residential care. Those assisted living communities are categorized as assisted care living facilities (ACLF) by the state of Tennessee, which licenses and regulates each facility under the auspices of the Department of Health’s Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities.

  • The crime rate in Clarksville is above the national average, with violent crime in the city rated 53.4 out of 100 versus 31.1 for the U.S. as a whole, which may be concerning to seniors worried about safety.

  • Thanks to an overall cost of living eight points under the national average, Clarksville offers seniors an affordable alternative to some other similarly sized cities across the United States.

A few highlights include the art-deco brilliance of Roxy Regional Theatre, which puts on live shows throughout the year, and the Fort Defiance Park & Interpretive Center, which is dedicated to the Civil War.

  • Seniors can use the Mid-Cumberland HRA’s public transit system to get around Clarksville and broader Montgomery County. Riders 60 years of age and older are eligible for the MCHRA’s IIB Program, which provides free rides for local seniors.
