Care Cost Comparison

At an average monthly price of $6,692, semiprivate nursing home care is the most expensive senior care option in Franklin. The high cost reflects the fact that nursing facilities provide 24/7 skilled nursing care for seniors who often have complex medical needs. Seniors who are relatively independent can hire in-home care for approximately $3,621 and $3,804 per month. These care costs are in addition to regular day-to-day living expenses, such as rent or mortgage payments, groceries and home repairs. By comparison, assisted living costs an average of $4,500 per month and includes semiprivate or private accommodations, meals and most daily living expenses.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Franklin

Medicaid in Tennessee

Approximately 1.6 million Tennessee seniors, children and adults with disabilities are covered by Medicaid, a government-funded health program. Mandatory Medicaid benefits include hospital and physician services, lab tests and long-term care, while assisted living benefits may be provided on a state-by-state basis through waiver programs. 

Seniors must be aged 65 or older, a permanent resident of Tennessee and have a valid Social Security number to apply for TennCare, the state Medicaid program. Seniors must also have a maximum monthly income of $2,313 per person and own no more than $2,000 in countable assets, such as cash, stocks, bonds, and real estate.

An owner-occupied home is exempt from Medicaid asset limits as long as the applicant and/or their spouse lives in the home. 

To apply for TennCare coverage, complete an online application or call TennCare Connect at (855) 259-0701. 

TennCare CHOICES in Long-Term Services and Support

Seniors aged 65 and older who meet the financial criteria for TennCare coverage and require the level of care normally provided in a nursing facility may qualify for TennCare CHOICES. This home and community-based Medicaid waiver program funds services to let seniors remain in a community setting. 

The CHOICES program is also open to seniors who don’t meet Medicaid’s criteria for nursing home placement but require some home-care services to maintain their independence in a noninstitutional setting. 

CHOICES covers a wide range of home-care services, such as: 

  • Personal care to assist with bathing, grooming, meal preparation and toileting
  • A personal medical alert device
  • Adult day health programming
  • Assistive technologies, such as grabber tools and magnifiers
  • Pest control to manage bugs or mice
  • Respite care
  • Minor home modifications


Seniors who need nursing home care may be enrolled in CHOICES if the cost of their home care is no greater than the cost of placement in a nursing facility. Seniors who are at-risk of nursing home placement may be provided with up to $15,000 worth of annual home-care services through CHOICES. 

CHOICES is administered through a managed care organization contracted by TennCare. To apply for the CHOICES program, contact the Council on Aging of Middle Tennessee at (615) 353-4235. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

For Aid and Attendance, claimants must be legally blind, living in a nursing facility, be bedridden due to disability or need help performing activities of daily living.
