Aging adults are increasingly choosing the Chattanooga area for retirement. In the last 10 years and for the next several years, aging baby boomers have been and will continue to be the fastest growing population segment in the area. Southern Living magazine and The Wall Street Journal both ranked Chattanooga among the best places to retire because of its culture, beautiful scenery, and low cost of living.  Livability.com, a site that ranks cities on livability, also named Chattanooga as a top destination for seniors due to its rich history, climate, and low cost of living.

With an average of 210 sunny days, Chattanooga area residents enjoy a mild climate year-round. The average annual high temperature is 72 degrees and the average annual low temperature is 50.

Cost of living for residents in Chattanooga is lower than the national average as there are no state income taxes, property taxes are low, and housing is affordable.  According to WalletHub, a personal finance site, the average American spends $2,127 on yearly property taxes, while the average Tennessean pays $1,314.   

Seniors can choose from many safe and affordable neighborhoods. Low-maintenance homes, condos, and apartments are available, many of them close to walking and biking trails, with pools, clubhouses, and outdoor sports, including golf and tennis.

Nationally recognized retirement and senior care communities offer independent and assisted living, along with specialized nursing and Alzheimer’s care. Residents can choose from a variety of options that best suit their needs, from minimal to full-service care to specialized care and transportation. Life Care Centers of America and Century Park Associates are both headquarted in Cleveland, Tennessee.  Independent Health Care Properties, which operates assisted living, senior living, and Alzheimer’s care communities, is located in Ooltewah. All three organizations have been nationally recognized for their senior care.

With 10 interdependent ministries, Alexian Brothers Senior Ministries offer a comprehensive network of communities and services for older adults in the area.

Award-winning health care is just around the corner, with facilities located not far from neighborhoods and retirement communities. With a number of convenient locations, CHI Memorial, Erlanger Health System, Kindred Hospital, Parkridge Health System, and Tennova-Cleveland offer quality care nearby.

With 4,800 acres of park space and 35 miles of walking and biking paths, seniors can stay active without traveling far from their neighborhoods. Green spaces, community centers, and many nearby attractions provide plenty of recreation options for Chattanooga’s senior community. Over 50,000 acres of national and state parks surround Chattanooga for the more adventurous.

Many educational and recreational options for seniors are available throughout the Chattanooga area. Nearly all of the area’s colleges offer education opportunities for adults, and there are plenty of historical sites and museums nearby. With a thriving arts and entrepreneurial community, the area is always buzzing with new opportunities for personal growth and enrichment.

Plenty of dining options are available, along with local farm-to-table restaurants and artisanal coffee shops. Many of these amenities can be accessed by walking, electric shuttle, or biking.
