Senior Life in Tennessee

Tennessee has a higher than national average of residents who are over the age of 65. Currently, 12.7 % of Tennessee residents are seniors. The US average is 12.4%. There are currently over 767,000 seniors in Tennessee. This number will most certainly rise in the coming years, as well as the need for assisted living and long term care in Tennessee.

Economy:

Tennessee has a diverse economy comprising manufacturing, agriculture, corporate operations and tourism. Although Tennessee produces a variety of crops such tobacco, soybeans, cotton, dairy and hogs, nearly 60% of its farms raise beef cattle. The state's biggest corporate presences include FedEx, AutoZone, International Paper, Eastman Kodak, Nissan and Caterpillar. Music-oriented tourist sites like Elvis Presley's “Graceland” mansion and the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville draw millions of visitors to Tennessee and play a major role in its economy.

Noteworthy:

Tennessee's economy benefitted from many FDR-era government programs like the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Manhattan Project.
