Are you looking for help?

When we grow old, we start facing a significant number of problems. Some of these problems are related to health, while others are related to money. Of course, when someone grows old, they become unable to work full-time and if there are no or little savings, financial problems can arise.

A report by the Tennessee State Plan on Aging reveals that there are about 1.57 million adults in Tennessee but it is worth noticing that this report was published in 2017. It means until now, their number must have increased.

The same report says that by 2030, about 28 percent of the Tennessee population will be based on people aged 60 or more. (Source)

If you are elderly and need food assistance or groceries to continue living a good life in Tennessee, you should try the Aging Nutrition Program.
