Tennessee is not the place to grow old claims new survey

Caring.com has produced an annual survey listing the best and worst states to grow old in. Using two criteria, quality-of-life and cost, Tennessee comes out a mediocre 30th of all the U.S. states. The criteria took into account the availability and quality of healthcare, and the cost of living. Tennessee performed particularly badly concerning the quality-of-life index, ranking just 40 out of the 50 states. In terms of cost of living, much better with a 1/11 position.

The best place to grow old? Utah, followed by Iowa, South Carolina and Washington. The worst states were: West Virginia, Indiana, New York and North Dakota. Neighboring Kentucky came in at 40th on the list.
