Why Nashville is a Great Living Destination for Seniors
We know location is a key factor in choosing a senior living / retirement community. Here are three reasons why we think Nashville is the place to retire!
The Home of Country Music
Nicknamed “Music City,” Nashville is a mecca for southern culture including food, architecture, and MUSIC! Nashvillle is probably most famous for being home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Bluebird Cafe, and Ryman Auditorium (home to the Grand Ole Opry until 1974).
Our senior residents love having first hand access to Nashville’s vibrant music scene.
Music lovers will love attending concerts and music festivals in downtown Nashville in their spare time!
You Can't Beat the Weather
It’s no wonder that warmer weather cities are more popular with retirees, and Nashville is no exception! With an annual average of 70 degrees and an annual low of just 49 degrees, Nashville is an agreeable climate for retirees. The city’s mild winters make Nashville a haven for those northerners looking to escape colder temperatures and snowstorms!
Warmer climates have been found to be very beneficial for senior citizens, with studies finding warmer temperatures can decrease blood pressure, alleviate arthritis, and help stimulate a more active lifestyle. With it being warm virtually all year round, you won’t hesitate to go for a walk, have a picnic, or join friends outdoors. Plus, the healthy amount of vitamin D from the sun can’t hurt your mood!
A Destination for World Class Medical Care
Nashville is a city known for its high quality healthcare. In fact, healthcare is the largest industry in the city, home to more than 300 health care companies, including Hospital Corporation of America, Community Health Systems, and LifePoint Health, and AMSurg Corp.
Blakeford is just minutes from Nashville’s major medical centers, allowing our residents the opportunity to maintain existing relationships with healthcare providers, as well as their leisure time pursuits on campus, contributing to a sense of well-being, independence, and peace of mind.
Experience the Charm of Green Hills
Blakeford’s campus is located in a picturesque residential area of Nashville known as Green Hills, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. An affluent community, Green Hills is one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Nashivlle to live in, known for being a premiere destination for shopping, gourmet restaurants, and historic churches.
Spend the afternoon shopping at The Mall at Green Hills or one of our local boutiques you can’t find anywhere else. Then later that night, have a meal at the famed Bluebird Cafe for good food and local music performances. Nowhere else in Nashville can you get the amenities of big city living with a quaint neighborhood feel.

Never stop learning! That’s easy to do when you’re near the state’s top universities. With lifelong learning opportunities important to many older adults, Blakeford is perfect for seniors who want to continue learning or pursue academic interests.
