    What to Consider About Memory Care in Murfreesboro

    With a population over 136,000, including 11,244 seniors over age 62, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is one of the nation's 15 fastest-growing cities according to census estimates. Statewide, researchers predict that 140,000 Tennesseans will be living with Alzheimer's disease by 2025. Fortunately, numerous resources are available for older adults who have cognitive impairments.

    Current laws endorsed by the Tennessee Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities allow assisted care living facilities to admit dementia and Alzheimer's patients. They may also care for those who have Huntington's disease and other neurological disorders as long as they can safely meet the individual's care requirements. Additionally, the state permits residential homes for the aged to offer memory care, but they can only provide room, board and personal assistance, not medical services.

    • Seniors in Murfreesboro enjoy a moderate four-season climate. The area has a comfort score of 51, which is slightly lower than the U.S. average of 54, due to the elevated humidity. Summer highs are near 90 degrees, and winter lows dip below freezing. The area receives just 3 inches of snow annually, so the climate is comfortable for most older adults.
    • Murfreesboro is a popular destination for retirees due to the mild Southern climate and the state's generous tax policies that can make memory care and medical treatments more affordable. Tennessee does not tax earned individual income, including Social Security and pensions. Retirement accounts, such as IRAs and 401(k)s, are exempt from the Hall tax that applies to most investment income.
    • As the community has grown, Murfreesboro's cost of living has increased proportionally. Local residents spend 24 percent more on essential living expenses than the average American. Housing and transportation account for the majority of the added costs. On the other hand, seniors in Murfreesboro pay less for groceries and health care than other Tennesseans, which is helpful for those who live on a fixed income.
