Some of these seniors are among the 120,000 individuals in Tennessee living with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, as reported by the Alzheimer's Association. Seniors and their families can choose from 15 memory care facilities in Knoxville itself, with another six located nearby. These facilities, which are regulated by the Tennessee Department of Health's Office of Health Care Facilities, give seniors access to quality care as they face Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.

    • Seniors looking to save money will enjoy Knoxville's cost of living, which falls below the national average. On a scale where 100 represents the U.S. average, Knoxville's cost of living comes in at 93.5. Although housing, grocery and utility costs are below average, healthcare costs rank above average. Fortunately, memory care facility expenses also fall below the national average in Knoxville.

Knoxville also sees precipitation totals higher than the national average, with the city experiencing about 49 inches of rain annually.
    • Crime rates in Knoxville are significantly higher than the national average. Both property and violent crime rates rank in the high 70s on a scale where one is the safest and 100 is the most dangerous.
