2019 // Retirement & Senior Care

Did You Know?

Chattanooga’s median home price, which was $175,000 in 2017, is nearly 30% below the national median home price of $246,800.

A mild climate, low cost of living, nationally recognized retirement communities, exceptional health care, and a host of recreational activities make Chattanooga a top place for seniors and a great place to retire.

Seniors across the country are choosing to make Chattanooga their home. In 2018, financial website SmartAsset analyzed migration data to rank Chattanooga #15 on a list of U.S. cities where retirees are moving. And in addition to past features in Kiplinger Personal Finance and Southern Living magazine, Chattanooga was recently highlighted in TheStreet’s “Best U.S. Cities to Retire In” and Livability’s “2018 Best Places to Retire.”

Residents of Chattanooga enjoy all four seasons and an average of 210 sunny days – an ideal climate for outdoor activity year-round. The average annual high temperature is 72 degrees, and the average annual low temperature is 50.

A low cost of living allows seniors to stretch their retire-
ment dollars further. On a scale where 100 is the national average, Chattanooga maintains an impressive score of 87.5, largely due to the city’s affordable housing. Other factors include low property taxes and no state income taxes.   

Seniors have their choice of safe neighborhoods boasting
low-maintenance homes, condos, and apartments – many of which are close to walking and biking trails. Some properties offer access to swimming pools, clubhouses, and tennis courts.

Retirement and senior care communities offer independent and assisted living, along with specialized nursing and Alzheimer’s care. Trained caregivers meet the needs of residents, ranging from minimal assistance to transportation and full-service care. Life Care Centers of America and Century Park Associates are both headquartered in Cleveland, Tennessee, while Morning Pointe and Independent Health Care Properties call Ooltewah home. Each of these organizations has been nationally recognized for its senior care.

Award-winning health care is easily accessible, with hospitals and other facilities located close to Chattanooga’s population centers. With a number of convenient locations, CHI Memorial, Erlanger Health System, Parkridge Health System, Kindred
Hospital, Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation, Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Chattanooga, and Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland are quality organizations offering exceptional care to patients.

Educational opportunities abound with classes and workshops available for students of all ages. Many colleges in the area offer specific programs for adults seeking to continue their education. Additionally, seniors can take advantage of the city’s historic sites and museums, or experience personal growth through involvement with a religious organization.    

Many seniors crave a more active retirement, and Chattanooga’s greenways, trails, and lakes cater to the adventurous crowd. More than 50 trailheads can be explored within a half hour of downtown; other recreation options include bike riding, golfing, fishing, and horseback riding. The 13-mile Riverwalk proves that beautiful scenery is accessible without ever leaving the city.

Diverse restaurants and specialty eateries are widely available, serving everything from local farm-to-table fare to artisanal coffee. These amenities, along with popular shopping centers, can be accessed by walking, electric shuttle, or biking.
