    What to Consider About Memory Care in Johnson City

    Senior citizens over the age of 65 make up more than 15 percent of the population in Johnson City, a fast-growing urban center located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Northeast Tennessee. Johnson City has two memory care facilities for people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Additional options can be found in nearby Bristol and Kingsport.

    As in the rest of Tennessee, some memory care facilities in the Johnson City area are housed in Assisted Care Living Facilities, which have no minimum residency requirements. Others are located in residential homes for the aged, which are required to have four non-related persons in residence.

    • Johnson City's pleasant weather is a major draw for seniors, including those requiring memory care. Despite the city's Southern location, its summers are mild, with highs in July averaging 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters can get cold, with lows regularly dipping below freezing, however, Johnson City gets less than half the annual snowfall of an average U.S. city.
    • Memory care residents with limited budgets can benefit from Johnson City's exceptionally low cost of living, which is 12 percent lower than the national average. Housing costs here are 22 percent lower than the national average, making it an attractive landing spot for seniors who have family members wanting to live close-by.
    • Tennessee is one of the most tax-friendly states in the nation. There is no income tax, including on Social Security, and property taxes are also very low. This allows seniors to put more of their retirement income toward receiving the best memory care available. On the flip side, the state has the nation's highest sales taxes, which average almost 9.5 percent. 
    • Johnson City has higher-than-average rates of both violent and property crime, but seniors in memory care facilities shouldn't be overly concerned. Both ACLFs and residential homes for the aged have an abundance of security features, including guards, cameras and locked entrances.
