    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oak Ridge

    Established by the U.S. government in 1942 to serve as a home base to the Manhattan Project, Oak Ridge lies in the eastern region of Tennessee and is part of the Knoxville Metropolitan Area. Today, Oak Ridge boasts a sizable senior population, with about 19 percent of its 29,000 residents aged 65 and older. Seniors who need help with the activities of daily living have five assisted living facilities to choose from in Oak Ridge with another 15 in nearby cities including Cordova, Kingston and Lenoir City.

    Assisted living communities in Oak Ridge and the rest of Tennessee are called assisted care living facilities (ACLFs). The Department of Health’s Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities, Office of Health Care Facilities regulates ACLFs for the state.
