Nashville (TN) Senior Living Communities
Music City should also be called “Value City” for its relatively low cost of living. Seniors looking for Nashville senior living will be impressed by how far they can stretch their retirement dollars. And they’ll be excited by the 264 senior community options in the Nashville area.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the city’s overall cost of living is 9% below the national average. The median home price is $138,000, while the average property tax runs a measly $1,320. Nashville senior living is equally affordable. According to Genworth Financial’s long-term care survey, a one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages just $2,838 a month and a private nursing home room averages $186 a day; a semi-private averages $176.
Nashville’s weather falls in the humid subtropical category like many Southern states. But because it’s further north, the summers are a shade less severe—the July average high is 88 degrees. And the winters bring occasional snow and lower average lows—28 degrees average in January.
Local historical attractions include Fort Negley and Fort Nashborough, a reconstructed Civil War fort. Representing a time many centuries before the Lost Cause is the Parthenon, a full-size reproduction of the Greek temple, complete with art museum. Nearby and worth a visit is The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s plantation home
Nashville is music, particularly country, gospel and Christian. But in this city, you can hear everything. There are dozens of small venues and bars as well as the biggies like the Grand Ole Opry, Belcourt Theater and the Ryman Auditorium. Just ten blocks from downtown is $37 million Country Music Hall of Fame. You can enjoy other art forms such as the Nashville Opera, Symphony and Ballet as well as the Music City Drum and Bugle Corps.
