    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ooltewah

    Nestled in the tail of the Smokey Mountains is Ooltewah, Tennessee, a tiny suburb of Chattanooga. This enclave of Collegedale gets its name from a Native American word for "Owl's Nest." Ooltewah's population is just 500, 47% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. This is a demographic that might, as they get older, need accommodations in an assisted living facility. Ooltewah is home to two assisted living communities, with 20 more located in the surrounding areas. 

    The Tennessee Department of Health's Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities licenses assisted care living facilities in Ooltewah and throughout the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ooltewah

    • The cost of living in Ooltewah is higher than the national average, at 112 compared to 100. Healthcare and housing, both important to seniors in assisted living, are 131.1 and 122.5, respectively. This may affect the cost of assisted living services, as the operational costs for the facilities may increase. 
    • Crime rates in Ooltewah are lower than the rest of the country. Violent crime rates are 14.5 compared to the U.S. average of 22.7, while property crimes are at 25.5 compared to the average of 35.4. Seniors in assisted living may feel more secure venturing out and about. 
    • Ooltewah, as a suburb of Chattanooga, 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.
    • Weather in Ooltewah means hot, humid summers and cool winters with moderate snow. July highs reach close to 90 degrees, with nearly 100% humidity, while January lows hover around the 30s. Seniors sensitive to higher heat and humidity may be uncomfortable here, although the warmer air may alleviate some respiratory conditions for others. 
    • The Ooltewah area, as part of the greater Chattanooga metro area, is home to world-class medical facilities, including CHI Memorial and The Chattanooga Heart Institute, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Tennessee does not have a state income tax, which includes an exemption for Social Security benefits and IRA and other retirement account withdrawals. Seniors budgeting for assisted living care in Ooltewah may find the extra money helpful.
