    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Henderson

    Henderson has about 6,300 residents and a large senior community that accounts for about 14% of the population. These seniors are served by the Chester County Senior Center, which is situated in the heart of Henderson and offers a wide array of activities like bingo nights, nutrition education, potluck dinners and trivia nights.

    Many Henderson seniors who need extra help with some daily living activities reside in the area’s three assisted living facilities. Two of these facilities are in the Henderson area, and the third is in the nearby city of Jackson. These facilities, like all assisted living facilities in the state, are licensed and governed by the Tennessee Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Henderson

    • The air quality in Henderson is rated 57 out of 100, which is about the same as the national average. Local seniors who are sensitive to pollen, smog and other airborne pollutants may want to track local high pollution days.

    • Henderson's climate is typical for Tennessee, with hot, humid summers and mild winters. Over the course of the year, high temperatures here range between 47 degrees and 90 degrees, and the city receives just 3 inches of snow. While summers may be uncomfortable for some, the city's generally pleasant climate may be well-suited to seniors who enjoy being outdoors. 

    • While Henderson's property crime rate is fairly low, coming in at 30.3 on a 100-point index compared to the national median of 35.4, the city's violent crime rate is a few points higher than the national average at 28.0. Seniors may want to participate in group outings for trips to local stores and points of interest. 

    • On a 100-point cost of living index based on the national average, Henderson's cost of living is rated 78.4, which is several points lower than the statewide median of 87.6. This may result in lower assisted living expenses, making it a good option for seniors seeking budget-friendly living.  

    • Tennessee doesn’t have a state income tax, which may leave more money in the budget for assisted living expenses in Henderson.  

    • The Henderson area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Lexington.
