What to Consider About Assisted Living in Franklin

Situated just 21 miles south of Nashville, Franklin offers both old-school charm and big-city amenities, giving seniors a small-town atmosphere and access to a booming metropolis. Franklin is home to some 78,321 people, and just under 12 percent of those locals are aged 65 years or older. Those seniors have a wealth of options when considering long-term residential care; there are 27 assisted living facilities in and around Franklin, including nine in Franklin proper. Those facilities are licensed and overseen by the Department of Health’s Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities, which monitors and regulates all assisted care living facilities (ACLF) in the state.
