Tennessee is full of attractions, both natural and man-(and woman-)made. When I went, I loved visiting the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the Grand Ole Opry, Graceland, and my favorite, Dollywood. It also has a low adjusted cost of living and no state income tax (unless you count the highly contested Hall tax on interest and dividend income from investments.) There are only about 10 states that have lower daily nursing home costs than Tennessee, according to Caregiverlist’s updated national nursing home cost database, with a daily room rate of $173.22 (the state average of single and shared rooms,) or $63,225 per year. Tennessee nursing homes carry average star rating of 2.6 out of 5.
How much do nursing homes in Tennessee cost? Senior care planning includes understanding costs of nursing homes, along with their overall ratings. It’s a fact that most people don’t even think about nursing home costs until long-term care is needed—like after the first 100 days of Medicare-covered care. Caregiverlist updates our nursing home cost database so seniors and their families can get an idea of long-term care costs in their area.
Caregivers provide companionship and caregiving to seniors, and must remember to "care for the caregiver." We thank you caregivers and certified nursing aides for your hard work and caring for our seniors. This week's stress relief photo was taken in Manchester, Connecticut, on a walk in the sunshine after a snowfall. The winter berries brighten up the bare trees. We invite you to take a moment to enjoy the photo and the inspirational quote and share them with loved ones. We hope you have a great week.

Senior caregivers assist seniors as companion caregivers and nursing aides working in nursing homes, assisted living communities and senior home care agencies. Hospitals also hire certified nursing aides. The pay rate for companion caregivers and nursing aides for 2013 has continued to rise and remains above minimum wage for all professional senior caregivers.
The Caregiverlist® pay survey results records the pay rates of 34,959 professional senior caregivers. Senior caregivers who work for a senior home care agency provide one-on-one caregiving services while nursing aides working for nursing homes and hospitals usually care for anywhere from 10 to 15 residents or patients. C.N.A. staffing ratios of nursing homes are reported in the health inspection reports conducted every 15 months and can be found in the Caregiverlist® Nursing Home Directory. More senior caregivers are needed and anyone with a caring personality may apply to a senior care job in their area on the Caregiverlist® Career Center.
Senior care companies hire from 3 to 6 professional caregivers each week, to keep up with the demand for part-time and full-time senior caregiving services. Most American seniors do not plan ahead for senior care and because of this, when a senior experiences a sudden medical condition such as a stroke, heart attack or the early stages of memory loss, they will then immediately need professional senior caregiving services.
In order to keep up with the demand for senior care, the number of senior home care agencies has increased by 40% since 2008. More than 20 franchise companies provide senior home care in addition to national corporations. More professional senior caregivers are needed to fill these open positions which increase daily.
The Caregiverlist® Career Center assists anyone with a caring personality to learn how to become a senior caregiver and submit a job application which reaches multiple hiring companies in their area who subscribe to “the Caregiverlist®”. As the only resource with an ongoing database of experienced, professional senior caregivers, Caregiverlist® allows companies to efficiently hire the most qualified caregivers in their area. Caregivers may learn about required senior caregiver training and take an online course to learn the necessary caregiving skills and meet state requirements.
