    What to Consider About Memory Care in Knox County

    In 2018, 120,000 Tennessee seniors had Alzheimer's disease, and that number is expected to grow by nearly 17 percent by 2025, according to the Alzheimer's Association. Nearly 16 percent of Knox County's 461,860 residents are aged 65 and older. Some of these seniors may be living with Alzheimer's disease and may benefit from living in one of the county's 13 memory care facilities.

    These memory care facilities, defined as assisted living facilities by the state, are subject to the Tennessee Department of Health's Board for Licensing Healthcare Facilities' regulations. Thanks to these regulations, seniors' families can rest easy knowing that memory care facilities in Knox County are trained to care for seniors living with Alzheimer's disease.

    • Cost of living in Knox County is just under the national average, coming in at 93.5 on a scale where 100 represents the national average. Healthcare costs are above average at 124. Seniors' families should consider these expenses when budgeting for memory care facility costs.
    • Seniors' families might discover some savings thanks to Tennessee's tax-friendly status for seniors. Knox County residents, like the rest of the state, do not pay a state income tax, which means social security income isn't taxed either.
    • Knox County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as The Pat Summitt Clinic at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
      • Crime rates in Knox County are higher than average. On a scale where one represents a safe city and 100 represents a dangerous one, Knox County's crime rates register at 78.5 for violent crime and 77.1 for property crime. As a result, seniors' families may want to discuss security measures in place at memory care facilities in the area.
