Company summary

9715f802b022ce6e01ab.jpg

The Life Care Centers of America story began in 1970 when Garden Terrace Convalescent Center, now Life Care Center of Cleveland, was built in Cleveland, Tennessee. With a highly trained staff of caring associates and a beautiful building resembling a home environment more than a traditional nursing home, Life Care embarked on its more than 40-years of experience in care — with a consistent focus on the resident as the highest priority.

Life Care continues to look for innovative ways to enhance resident and patient care. The same passion for resident-centered care, that started in 1970, still fuels Life Care today.

Who we are

Products, services

No longer simply nursing homes, Life Care offers more services in order to meet the needs of residents and patients across the country. Through the years, Life Care added Alzheimer’s and dementia care, assisted and independent living facilities, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, and on-site physicians.

We also provide post-acute care or short-term rehabilitation for when you or a loved one are recovering from a hospital stay, surgery or illness. Rehabilitation services at our facilities serve patients of many ages, from adult to geriatric, and many of our facilities even have on-site physicians to better serve you as a family member, resident or patient facing these situations.

Alzheimer’s and dementia care, independent and assisted living facilities and retirement communities are available at many of Life Care’s locations or through our sister company Century Park Associates. In many instances, these services are all offered together on continuum-of-care campuses, allowing patients and residents to transition from one level of care to the next without having to change facilities or leave surroundings they’ve grown accustomed to.

Life Care Centers of America will strive to help you or your loved one meet his or her necessary care needs, regardless of what stage of life he or she may be in. While some types of care are more common among certain age groups, we pride ourselves in providing full life care – it’s even in our name.
