What to Consider About Memory Care in Chattanooga

Chattanooga is home to about 180,000 residents, of whom more than 15 percent are 65 years and older. Some of the 120,000 Tennessee residents living with Alzheimer's disease call Chattanooga home, and these seniors have access to memory and aging services through the University of Tennessee -Erlanger's neurology unit. Seniors can also select one of Chattanooga's 10 memory care facilities for around-the-clock care.

The Tennessee Department of Health's Office of Health Care Facilities licenses and certifies all memory care facilities in the state to ensure they deliver quality care to seniors with dementia in Chattanooga and other Tennessee cities. 

  • Budget-conscious seniors will enjoy the lower-than-average cost of living in Chattanooga. On a scale where 100 represents the U.S. average, Chattanooga boasts a cost of living of 92.2. Housing, grocery and transportation costs are lower than average. Due to this overall low cost of living, seniors will be pleased to note that memory care facility expenses in Chattanooga also come in lower than average.
