What to Consider About Assisted Living in Johnson City

The Tennessee Department of Health, Office of Health Care Facilities, licenses and monitors assisted living facilities in Johnson City and the rest of the state. It publishes up-to-date information on rules assisted living facilities must follow as well as disease-control measures. It also has contact information for the statewide abuse registry and gives instructions on how to file complaints. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Johnson City

  • Tennessee doesn’t levy income taxes, so seniors in Johnson City only pay federal income taxes on their retirement income, simplifying the tax filing process and allowing them to put more income toward assisted living expenses. Property taxes in Tennessee are low, which may result in more competitive pricing for residential care. 
  • Johnson City is a very affordable place to live, making it a good option for older adults with limited retirement budgets. On a 100-point cost of living index, the city scores 82 versus the state score of 87.6. This indicates that overall living expenses are about 18% lower than the national median and nearly 6% lower than Tennessee as a whole. 
  • Based on most recent FBI crime data, instances of violent crime occur significantly less in Johnson City compared to the rest of Tennessee, but property crime is somewhat prevalent. In 2019, violent crime occurred at a rate of about 426 instances per capita, compared to respective state and national rates of 595 and 379. Property crime is more common with a frequency of 3,557 instances per capita versus 2,653 statewide and 2,110 nationally. Assisted living facilities provide a safe, secured environment for seniors and may be a preferred alternative to living alone. 
  • On a 10-point comfort index, Johnson City scores 8.4 compared to the national average of 7.8, indicating that it has generally comfortable weather throughout the year. Summers are warm with daytime temperatures in the mid-80s, and humidity is low throughout the year except in July when conditions tend to be muggy. Winters are cold with low temperatures in the mid-20s. Assisted living facilities organize indoor and outdoor recreational activities year-round, helping residents stay comfortable and engaged. 
  • Health care costs in Johnson City exceed the national average by about 5%, but high access to health care services makes the city a prime option for those managing chronic conditions. Per capita, there are 485 doctors, more than double the national median of 210. Two hospitals within the city include Johnson City Medical Center and Franklin Woods Community Hospital.
