    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kingston

    Kingston is located on the shores of Watts Bar Lake and is the state's second oldest city. It's the county seat of Roane County and has about 5,800 residents, about a quarter of whom are age 65 and over. These seniors are served by the East Tennessee Area Agency on Aging, an organization that provides transportation and nutrition services, as well as one senior center. Here, seniors participate in daily card games, weekly dances and monthly lucheons. 

    Kingston area seniors who need an extra hand with some activities of daily living have three assisted living facilities to choose from, two of which are in the city proper and one more that’s in nearby Rockwood. These facilities are licensed by the Tennessee Department of Health.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kingston

    • Tennessee doesn’t impose a state income tax on any type of retirement income, meaning that seniors in Kingston only pay federal income tax on retirement income. This may leave more money for local assisted living expenses.  
    • The Kingston area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Roane Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • On a 100-point scale based on the nationwide median, the overall cost of living in Kingston is on par with the statewide average and about 11 points lower than the national average. This may make it a financially viable option for seniors with tight retirement budgets. 
    • Kingston's crime rate is lower than the national average, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy being out alone in the community. On a 100-point crime index, with the national average at 35.4 for property crime and 16.3 for violent crime, Kingston's property crime is rated 27.6, and violent crime is rated 16.3. 
    • Summers in Kingston are very humid and very warm with highs in upper-80s, which may be a consideration for seniors who don't enjoy hot weather. Winters are fairly mild, however, with lows around 27 degrees and just 4 inches of snowfall per year. 
    • The air quality in Kingston is on par with the national average, rating 59 out of 100 on a health index. Seniors who have respiratory illnesses or allergies may want to track day-to-day air quality and stay indoors on high-ozone or high-pollen days.
