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.
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. Life Care was the first long-term care company to be fully, and voluntarily, accredited by The Joint Commission and maintains that accreditation.
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.
