Though “The Volunteer State” earned its nickname for sending generous amounts of volunteer troops to battles during multiple American wars in the early 1800s, Tennessee today is known for its natural beauty and musical roots. On the eastern end of the state is the college town of Knoxville, as well as Gatlinburg, the popular resort village that serves as a gateway to the majestic Great Smoky Mountains. Music fans from across the world flock to Tennessee’s two largest cities: Nashville and Memphis. Whether it’s blues, rock ‘n’ roll, or country, the history of American music runs deep through these two cities. Tennessee also shares the most borders with other U.S. states (tied with Missouri at eight), so its central location — along with a lower-than-average cost of living — makes Tennessee an ideal retirement destination.
Currently, Tennessee has more than 30 home care agencies that provide home health aides for seniors who live alone at home. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of home care services in Tennessee to help you find one that fits your needs and budget.
The median monthly cost of home care in Tennessee is about $3,900, according to Genworth.
