What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lebanon
The leafy town of Lebanon, also known as “Cedar City," sits about 25 miles east of Nashville. Just over 16 percent of Lebanon’s 32,336 residents are 65 years of age or older, and those seniors have access to four assisted living facilities located nearby. The state of Tennessee categorizes these communities as assisted care living facilities (ACLF), all of which are regulated and overseen by the Tennessee Department of Health’s Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lebanon
- In terms of affordability, Lebanon is on par with the national average. The cost of living is 99.1 compared to the national average of 100, and only housing costs exceed that 100-point benchmark.
- Lebanon has relatively mild winters, with temperatures reaching a low of 27 degrees Fahrenheit in January and a mere three inches of snow annually. Summers, on the other hand, are hot and wet, which might prove troublesome for seniors who are negatively affected by heat and humidity.
Crime rates are high in Lebanon, which may be concerning for seniors searching for a safe place to live. Violent crime in the city is ranked 65.9 out of 100 versus the national average of 31.1, while property crime is 55.1 in Lebanon compared to an average of 38.1 across the U.S.
- The Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency (MCHRA) operates a rural public transportation service that offers curb-to-curb rides to seniors and other eligible individuals in need of transport to medical appointments, grocery stores and other important destinations. Seniors looking for regional transportation into Nashville can hop on the Music City Star at a significantly reduced fare.
- The Lebanon area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Tennova Healthcare–Lebanon, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Lebanon has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Council on Aging of Middle Tennessee, which offers everything from senior transportation to caregiver education, and at least one senior center.
