Presenting Mrs. Edith Gurner a Senate Resolution honoring her 100th Birthday at the Collierville LibraryPresenting Mrs. Edith Gurner a Senate Resolution honoring her 100th Birthday at the Collierville Library

Welcome to Tennesseniors.com where information for "senior citizens" is readily available.

We have accomplished much in the last few years, such as setting up a credit freeze system to protect you against identity theft and enacting the property tax relief for those 65 and over.

As for the future, I continue working to reduce the sales tax on food, improve home and community-based care as an alternative to nursing homes, improve senior citizen centers, and find incentives for long term care insurance.

I hope this site will be useful to you as these things develop. Please check back often and stay in touch with me.


Senator Mark Norris


Demand Tax Relief

As our counter shows, more local governments have adopted the senior citizen property tax freeze. I commend those that have enacted this important program. Now, I need your help to encourage other counties and municipalities in Tennessee to adopt the freeze. We should lead them to see that this plan is simple, affordable, and makes sense. I ask that YOU contact your County Commissioner and/or City Councilman or Alderman today and let them know that the property tax freeze is awaiting their action to benefit your community. The time is now!

To find the addresses of your city and county officials, you can look them up at the following web sites:

TDCI Shares Consumer Protection Tips for Seniors on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Department Helps Tennesseans Avoid Identity Theft & Fight Elder Financial Exploitation

NASHVILLE – In recognition of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15, the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance’s (TDCI) Securities and Consumer Affairs Divisions offer essential tips to help older adults avoid falling victim to identify theft and financial abuse.

Elders are often targets for financial fraud and identity theft due in part to the amount of wealth they have accumulated throughout their careers, their tendency to be trusting, and their increasing isolation.

“Many in our older population are vulnerable due to social isolation and distance from family, caregivers, and other support networks,” TDCI Assistant Commissioner for Securities Frank Borger-Gilligan said. “As Tennesseans, we can all play a part in helping protect this population by keeping a watchful eye for signs of elder financial exploitation and promptly reporting possible abuse to appropriate officials.”

TDCI offers the following guidelines to help older adults and their loved ones recognize and avoid potential financial exploitation and fraud:

Senior Investor Tips

• When a stranger asks for money, proceed with caution. Swindlers will exploit your good manners.

• Before you invest, make sure your investment adviser is licensed. Extensive background information is available by contacting TDCI’s Securities Division.

• Beware of salespeople who prey upon your fears. Fear can blind your good judgement. Only invest when you have all the facts and feel comfortable.

• Don’t let embarrassment prevent you from reporting fraud or abuse. Every day that you delay reporting fraud or abuse is one more day that the con artist is spending your money and finding new victims.

Identity Theft Prevention Tips

• Never buy from a stranger who calls or visits unannounced.

• Shred all paperwork containing identifying information, healthcare information, banking information, or passwords.

• Monitor bank and credit card statements.

• Monitor your credit report.

• Use direct deposit for benefit checks to prevent checks from being stolen.

• Never give your credit card, banking, Social Security number, Medicare, or other personal information over the phone, unless you initiated the call.

If you suspect that you might be a victim of securities or insurance fraud, or if you would like to file a complaint or speak with an investigator, please contact the Tennessee Securities Division – Financial Services Investigations Unit at (615) 741-5900 or visit https://tn.gov/commerce/article/securities-file-a-complaint. Other types of elder abuse should be reported to the Tennessee Department of Human Resources Adult Protective Services Unit.

Elder Abuse Resources

Tennessee law requires that "any person having reasonable cause to suspect that an adult has suffered abuse, neglect, or exploitation, shall report or cause reports to be made" to the proper authorities. This is a responsibility that more and more people across the state are beginning to take seriously. Thousands of cases are reported every year, but the number of reported cases to actual cases remains alarmingly low.

Abuse can take many forms: Physical abuse; neglect; emotional or psychological abuse; financial abuse and exploitation; sexual abuse; and abandonment are considered forms of elder abuse.

The Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability has provided the following page with resources for determining the signs of abuse as well as how to report suspected abuse.


Tennessee Elder Abuse Task Force Final Report

Tennessee Elder Abuse Task Force

The Elder Abuse Task Force was created by the Tennessee General Assembly as a result of Chapter 961 of the Public Acts of 2014.  The Elder Abuse Task Force was directed to study Tennessee’s current system for protecting, preventing, and prosecuting crimes of abuse against Tennessee’s elders and its more vulnerable adults. Additionally, the Task Force was instructed to examine the existing barriers, services, and resources to address the needs of elders and vulnerable adults. Furthermore, the Task Force was charged with developing recommendations to address the problems associated with the abuse of Tennessee’s elders and vulnerable adults.

The Task Force was initially to meet and submit a final report to the Governor and the Tennessee General Assembly by no later than January 15, 2015. However, after meeting a number of times in 2014, the Task Force determined that it needed more time to examine and explore the issue of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation in Tennessee. As a result, legislation was introduced to permit the Task Force to continue meeting. This legislation passed and extended the Task Force’s deadline for a final report to January 15, 2016.
The Task Force met a total of eleven times in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Throughout the course of these meetings, the Task Force heard testimony and comments from state agencies, and individuals involved in the prevention and prosecution of elder and vulnerable adult abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The Task Force finalized eight recommendations and has included these recommendations in its final report.  

Read the full report.

The General Assembly passed several bills during the 2016 legislative session to protect senior citizens from both physical harm and financial exploitation. Starting with the budget, sponsored by Senator Norris, funds were allocated this year to support staff training on elder abuse through the District Attorneys General Conference.

Vulnerable Adult Protective Investigation Teams -- The General Assembly passed a law, sponsored by Senator Norris, to create a Vulnerable Adult Protective Investigation Team (VAPIT) in each judicial district in Tennessee. The purpose of the measure is to coordinate the investigation of suspected instances of abuse, neglect or exploitation of an adult. The information generated by the multi-disciplinary adult protective services team can then be reviewed to determine what further action can be taken to protect these citizens. One study estimated that only 1 in 14 cases of elder abuse ever come to the attention of authorities.

Senate Bill 2588 by Norris, Gresham, Haile, Massey, Roberts / Status: Public Chapter 1006 / Effective Date: upon becoming law on April 27, 2016

Elder Abuse / Elder Exploitation-- Several new laws were approved this session to tackle the growing problem of elder abuse in Tennessee, including legislation stemming from recommendations of the General Assembly’s Elder Abuse Task Force. The task force was formed two years ago to study Tennessee’s current system for protecting, preventing and prosecuting crimes of abuse for its older and more vulnerable adults. This includes legislation to keep the state's elderly safe by setting up checks on the people who are working in direct contact with vulnerable adults in home healthcare and hospice.

The new law lays out requirements that must be met before an employee may be hired. Applicants must supply fingerprint samples, submit to a background check and provide past references. These requirements apply to third party vendors that have direct contact with the patients.

Senate Bill 2484 by Gardenhire, Crowe, Niceley, Norris / Status: Public Chapter 1044 / Effective Date: Sections 4 (background checks) and 8 takes effect on July 1, 2016 with the remaining sections becoming effective upon becoming law on April 28, 2015

Financial Exploitation -- Following another recommendation of the task force, a resolution was passed to address financial exploitation of vulnerable adults. The measure resolves that the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability will work with the Tennessee Bankers Association, the Tennessee Credit Union League and other appropriate organizations to develop a list of recommended changes to current law that would assist financial institutions in protecting vulnerable adults from fraudulent and other questionable transactions.

Senate Joint Resolution 678 by Crowe / Status: Signed by the Governor on May 12, 2016

Aging Caregivers / Persons with Disabilities – Legislation passed this year to help aging caregivers who care for a child or ward with an intellectual disability. The new law will allow eligible people having an intellectual disability (ID) who are on the waiting list for services from the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) with custodial parents or caregivers aged 75 and over to enroll into the Self-Determination or similarly capped waiver.

In 2015, the original “aging caregiver” law was passed by the General Assembly requiring DIDD to enroll all eligible people whose caregivers are 80 and over into the Self-Determination Waiver. However, the average life expectancy in Tennessee is only 76.30 years of age. The new law gives aging caregivers who are facing their own healthcare challenges the peace of mind that their child or family member will be cared for after they pass away. At the same time, it provides individuals with disabilities with basic support prior to a “crisis” to help them adjust to being supported by people other than their primary caregiver.

Senate Bill 2003 by Ketron, Haile, Crowe, Niceley, Yager / Status: Public Chapter 707 / Effective Date: July 1, 2016

Conservators / Wards – State lawmakers approved a new law this year to restrict the ability of a conservator to isolate their ward from visitation by family members or loved ones without just cause. A conservator is a legally appointed guardian of a disabled person. Under previous law, a conservator could restrict visitation and communication with the ward in Tennessee without going to court, even when it involves communication or visits by a family member. Due to the growing number of divorces, this became a problem when there is conflict between children of an incapacitated adult whose spouse has been named the conservator.

The new law provides the ward has a right to visit, communicate or interact with family and loved ones and that a conservator shall not restrict it unless specifically authorized by a court order. It also provides a process by which the conservator can petition the court to place restrictions upon communication or interaction by showing good cause. Some of the factors the court can consider are previous protective orders, whether the ward expresses the wish to visit and past preferences.

Senate Bill 2190 by Crowe, Kelsey, Johnson, Tate / Status: Public Chapter 1062 / Effective Date: upon becoming law on May 16, 2016

Grandparent Visitation Rights -- Legislation passed this year expanding the authority of a court to order grandparent visitation when the child is not in the custody of the parent and when the grandparent’s relationship has been significantly reduced, rather than severed.

Previously, if custody of a child is awarded to a set of grandparents, the judge could recommend, but not mandate, visitation for the other set of grandparents.

The new law allows a judge to grant those visitation rights and expands the authority of a court to order grandparent visitation when the child is not in the custody of the parent and when the grandparent's relationship has been significantly reduced, rather than severed.

Senate Bill 1670 by McNally, Haile, Tracy, Bailey / Status: Public Chapter 1076 / Effective Date: Upon becoming law on May 20, 2016 

Norris Seeks to Curb Senior Abuse With New Laws

By Sam Stockard, MemphisDailyNews.com
March 1, 2017

NASHVILLE – Calling elderly abuse a “silent crisis,” state Sen. Mark Norris is leading a legislative effort to stop physical, mental and financial abuse of vulnerable adults with bills to expand protections and increase penalties.

“The elderly population is growing, and the problem is growing, and we need to put an end to it,” says Norris, a Collierville Republican. “We talk about keeping Tennesseans safe. There’s no more important segment of our society than our elders and the vulnerable among us, and we’re gonna put an end to it, and it starts today.”

A product of the Elderly and Vulnerable Adult Abuse Task Force, the legislation builds on measures passed by Norris and Rep. Kelly Keisling, R-Byrdstown, in 2016 setting up protective investigative teams in each judicial district to increase cooperation and information sharing between government agencies to protect elderly and vulnerable adults.

Norris points out elder abuse often goes unreported and frequently is perpetrated by people the victims trust the most.

“Often, because the abuser may be a family member, the individual may also be fearful of reprisal,” Norris says.

Cases of assault and financial exploitation of vulnerable adults have increased by 20 percent over the last decade, and up to one out of 14 cases goes unreported, according to legislators.

More than 41 percent of the offenses are committed by a family member, and law enforcement authorities say another 13 percent of victims have a close relationship with the perpetrator, according to legislators.

Senate Bill 1230 would codify elder and vulnerable adult abuse and exploitation, creating Class C and Class D felonies, and require those convicted to submit their names to a Tennessee Department of Health Abuse Registry. Fines also would be increased for convictions.

Senate Bill 1192 would change the Tennessee Securities Act of 1980, giving the Department of Commerce and Insurance commissioner authority to restrict exemptions and increase penalties in cases where seniors and adults with certain mental and physical dysfunctions are the victims of altered documents.

Senate Bill 1267 requires the Department of Financial Institutions to work with financial service providers, the Commission on Aging and Disability and Department of Human Services to find ways to promote awareness of the dangers of financial exploitation.

Says Sen. Todd Gardenhire, a Chattanooga Republican sponsoring the legislation, “It’s been a challenge to work on this subject because it’s so emotional with a lot of people. I’ve seen in my career as a retired financial adviser a lot of abuse that’s gone on with people’s children, mostly of parents that are elderly.

“They come in and they suck the money out of their accounts and they spend it on things that aren’t associated with taking care of mama or daddy or grandparents, and that’s probably the saddest part about watching all this happen.”

Bankers would be given immunity while retaining contractual obligations to conduct transactions in cases they see the potential for abuse, officials say.

Tim Amos, executive vice president and general counsel for the Tennessee Bankers Association, says bankers would obtain the discretion to delay withdrawals and investigate, saying, “No, I don’t think you should be sending that $5,000 wire to Nigeria today.”

He calls it an important tool to enable bankers to stop abuse because once the money is gone, “it’s gonna be very difficult to recover.”

Sen. Rusty Crowe, a Johnson City Republican, described a situation in which he went home recently and found out his 95-year-old mother was trying to borrow money from neighbors to contribute to someone running a scam.

“She’d gone to a neighbor’s house to borrow $15,000 to send to someone in Pakistan who was using a Brooklyn phone exchange to raise money,” Crowe says. “So it’s happening every day.”

Yellow Dot

The Tennessee Yellow DOT Program, passed in the General Assembly in 2012, is designed to provide first responders with an individual’s medical information in the event of an emergency on Tennessee’s roadways. The information can mean the difference between “life and death” in the “Golden Hour” immediately following a serious incident.

Participants in the program will receive a Yellow DOT decal, a Yellow DOT folder, and a medical information sheet; a personalized photo will be taken and placed on the sheet. The participant will complete the medical information sheet which consists of their emergency contact information, medical information, recent surgeries, hospital preferences, current medications, insurance and physicians’ information. This information will be the sole responsibility of the participant and should remain in the glove compartment inside the yellow folder provided. The Yellow DOT decal will be placed on the driver’s side rear window of their vehicle.

Freeze much-needed for our graying state

By STATE SEN. MARK NORRIS • Tennessean.com

In a poignant moment in his State of the State address last January, Gov. Phil Bredesen acknowledged his mother's desire to stay in her home:

"I've seen how much you want to be in your own home; I know how difficult that would have been … without some help. … If you want to stay in your home … this is the year we're going to start making it easier."

Actually, the General Assembly began the long process of making it easier for senior citizens on fixed incomes to stay in their homes three years ago. Unfortunately, the majority of local municipal and county governments in Tennessee have yet to do so.

I proudly sponsored the referendum to amend our state constitution permitting local governments to freeze property taxes in 2005. Nearly 1.4 million Tennesseans ratified the constitutional amendment in 2006. The following year, I sponsored the enabling legislation, the Property Tax Freeze Act of 2007, for cities and counties to put the freeze in place. Seniors with combined incomes below the median income of their county of residence qualify, but it is all to no avail if their local elected officials fail to adopt the program.

The recent state Senate passage of the The Long-Term Care Community Choices Act of 2008 is the latest chapter in "the graying of Tennessee." As we age, it is increasingly important our homes not be taken for taxes. This is especially true when it comes to health care and our efforts to provide more cost-effective and better care in that home as opposed to a nursing home.

Local officials should act

Despite the recognition that home- and community-based care are preferable to institutionalized care, and notwithstanding the fact that nearly 83 percent of Tennesseans voted to make local property tax freezes for senior citizens a reality, city and county governments are moving very slowly to embrace the need. As of this writing, only 14 local governments across the state have done so.

Some local governments' excuse for not adopting tax relief is a concern that doing so for seniors shifts tax burdens to younger Tennesseans. But consider the costs if they don't.

For every dollar that could be spent serving the elderly and people with disabilities at home, Tennessee currently spends $149 on nursing-home care alone. The annual cost of nursing-home care exceeds $58,000 per person compared to $36,000 for home and community-based care. Nursing-home care now costs Tennesseans nearly $1 billion per year. With the population of senior citizens projected to double to more than 1.5 million in the next 15 years, that is the cost that should concern local governments the most.

Adopting the property tax freeze for seniors should be a priority for local governments. It is an integral part of our effort to preserve the home, improve the quality of life for an increasing number of Tennesseans, and respect the dignity of those who have earned it.

Time Is Now for Property Tax Relief

by Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris

The Property Tax Freeze Act of 2007 is now law, and it is time to urge your local elected officials to adopt it.

For the first time in Tennessee history, 65 year olds earning less than the County’s median income for 65 year olds and older can qualify to have their city and county property taxes frozen against future increases – whether from reappraisals, reassessments or outright tax hikes.

There’s just one thing. Your city council or county commission must vote to participate in the program first. Property tax relief is available beginning January 2008 for those who act now.

For over six years, I lead the effort to amend our State Constitution to make it easier for senior citizens to keep their homes in later life. I believe seniors on fixed incomes should not have to sacrifice buying prescription medications just to pay increased taxes, nor should they otherwise worry over how to make ends meet without selling their home.

1.3 million Tennesseans supported my efforts last November when 83% voted in favor of Amendment 2. This year, with a clear mandate, we codified the procedure making the Property Tax Freeze Act reality.

Regulations governing the tax freeze will be adopted by the State Board of Equalization on September 17, 2007. But the Attorney General recently ruled that counties or municipalities may adopt the tax freeze even before the regulations are promulgated. Davidson County has already done so.

That’s why I am writing now; to encourage you to urge your city council members (if you live in Memphis), aldermen if you live elsewhere, and county commissioners to participate. Now is the time to ask candidates for election to city boards in upcoming elections whether they will vote to participate in the property tax freeze for seniors.

Some younger elected officials in Memphis don’t seem to care about tax relief for seniors. One was recently reported to have said, “I’m a long way from 65, but I have two kids to raise.” He worries what additional cost he might bear. But a recent study by the AARP Public Policy Institute confirms that senior citizens in Tennessee bear the brunt of the property tax burden.

With increasing emphasis on home and community based care, it only makes sense to do everything we can to respect the dignity and independence of our seniors by helping them keep their homes.

The proposed Rules governing eligibility and enforcement under the Property Tax Freeze Act will be considered on September 17, 2007:

Attorney General's opinion March 23, 2007 PDF
Attorney General's opinion July 17, 2007 PDF Introduction to the Property Tax Freeze


In November 2006, Tennessee voters approved an amendment to the Tennessee Constitution authorizing a property tax freeze for elderly homeowners. This amendment to Article II, Section 28 of the Tennessee Constitution gives the General Assembly the authority by general law to authorize counties and municipalities to implement a local option property tax freeze for taxpayers 65 years of age or older.

In its 2007 session, the 105th General Assembly enacted the Property Tax Freeze Act (Senate Bill 2 / House Bill 1033) which establishes the tax freeze.  Under the Act, the legislative body of any county or municipality is authorized to adopt the property tax freeze program. The Act becomes effective on July 1, 2007.Provisions

Homeowners qualifying for the program will have the property taxes on their principal residence frozen at a base tax amount, which is the amount of taxes owed in the year they first qualify for the program. Thereafter, as long as the owner continues to qualify for the program, the amount of property taxes owed for that property will not change, even if there is a property tax rate increase.

In order to qualify, the homeowner must file an application annually and must:

  • Own their principal place of residence in a participating county and/or cityBe 65 years of age or older by the end of the year in which the application is filed
  • Have an income from all sources that does not exceed the county income limit established for that tax year

In counties and municipalities participating in the Tax Freeze Program, application may be made to the county Trustee or city collecting official.

The state Comptroller’s Office will calculate the income limit for each county annually using a formula outlined in state law.

Situations where the base tax amount would change for a homeowner are:

  • When improvements are made to the property resulting in an increase in its value
  • When the homeowner sells their home and purchases another residence

The tax freeze is available only on the principal place of residence of the qualifying homeowner located in a participating county or city. There are limitations on the amount of land that can be included for residential purposes in the program, and the program does not apply to portions of the property not used for residential purposes.
