    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Murfreesboro

    Situated about 35 miles southeast of downtown Nashville, Murfreesboro is home to 136,000 residents, nearly 9 percent of whom are 65 years or older. Seniors considering assisted living in the Murfreesboro area may choose among the city's seven facilities.

    As is the case in all of Tennessee, assisted living facilities in Murfreesboro are classified as assisted care living facilities (ACLFs) or as residential homes for the aged (RHAs). The Tennessee Department of Health regulates both types of facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Murfreesboro

    • For those who enjoy watching the seasons change but prefer not to deal with too much snow, the Murfreesboro climate might be a smart choice. Summertime high temperatures average in the upper 80s, while winter lows average just below freezing. The city receives about two inches of snow per year.
    • The overall cost of living in Murfreesboro is 10 percent higher than the national average, with the city's housing costs, at nearly 25 percent higher than in a typical U.S. city, being the biggest driver of this discrepancy. Health care is also slightly more expensive than average in Murfreesboro, which may cause concern among seniors with limited budgets or high medical expenses.
    • Murfreesboro's violent crime rate is 24.4 out of 100, with 100 being worst. This rate is much lower than the state average but slightly higher than the national average of 22.7. That said, assisted living facilities tend to be safe places to live, and most have an abundance of security features in place.
    • Seniors in Murfreesboro are not taxed at the state level on their Social Security checks or on any other retirement income, which leaves more money available to put toward quality health care.
    • Murfreesboro's air quality receives a score of 59 out of 100, which is slightly better than the national average of 58. Seniors with asthma and other lung issues can breathe easily in the city.
