Tennessee has a fantastic music scene that is especially catered for 55+ and 62+ seniors. Nashville is a Mecca within the music industry, along with Memphis. Nashville is well known as the capital of country music while nearby Bristol is considered the “Birthplace of Country Music”. Memphis has heavily influenced several great blues, soul and rock and roll musicians. Every year some of the most talented artists beg to do a show at the iconic Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

If you love music along with a diverse arts culture and mild weather then you should consider senior housing in Tennessee. Because of the country, blues and soul music scene, the state attracts a lot of seniors and some extremely well-built and managed senior living apartments in Tennessee are here for the taking!

Benefits of Senior Living and Housing in Tennessee

Despite its wonderful music scene, excellent food and drinks, as well as underrated shopping scene -- Tennessee still has a relatively low cost of living. You would expect rent to jump up with all the demand, yet Tennessee senior housing has never managed to get outrageous over the years. The cost of food and utilities are also below the national average, making the state a prime spot to relocate for many seniors looking for an independent living community.

The healthcare system is also strong in Tennessee and one aspect that makes the state very unique is that it doesn’t charge additional tax on prescriptions, unlike most states. As a result, if you order prescriptions on a regular basis, this is yet another great incentive to look for senior apartments in Tennessee.

Cost of Senior Apartments in Tennessee

What is the average monthly rent for senior living in Tennessee? It is surprisingly reasonable. The average senior apartment or condo is just under $2,000 per month, which is slightly less than the national average. Affordable Tennessee senior housing complexes start as low as $1,000 with many in the $1,400 to $1,600 price range.

If you have a little extra money to spend, some luxury suites and high-end senior living facilities in Tennessee can set you back as much as $3,000 per month (that price may or may not include utilities as well). Still, high-end senior apartments for rent in Tennessee are far cheaper than luxury senior rentals you would pay for in northeastern America or Florida and California.

The Best Places for Seniors Housing in Tennessee

Several suburbs of Nashville are among the Top 10 destinations for senior living in Tennessee because the neighborhoods are a little outside all the noise and hustle of the downtown area, yet still a short drive away from the famous music scene.

The Nashville suburbs of Brentwood, Nolensville and Oak Hill are very popular with retirees. The Memphis suburbs of Collierville and Germantown also have a strong number of senior residents. The town of Franklin and Farragut have a large senior demographic as well.

You will be more likely to find the most affordable senior apartments for rent in Tennessee in cities such as Memphis, Arlington, Knoxville and Lakeland.
