    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Knoxville

    Knoxville is the third largest city in Tennessee and is credited as being the cradle of country music, the city that bought country music to the masses. There are 45 assisted living communities in the Knoxville area, with 30 in the Knoxville city limits and 15 more in the nearby communities of Maryville, Oak Ridge, Powell and Louisville. These facilities help seniors with tasks associated with daily living such as eating and drinking, and washing and dressing. The Office of Health Care Facilities is responsible for regulating assisted living communities in Tennessee.

    • Knoxville is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.

    • Knoxville has an array of community resources for seniors, including the John T. O'Connor Senior Center, an organization that provides seniors with a safe and welcoming environment where they can meet new people and stay active, as well as seven other senior centers.
