Life Care Centers of America

Where passion and care live.

Families have been trusting Life Care Centers of America with caring for their loved ones for nearly 50 years. Our founder, Forrest Preston, opened our first facility in Cleveland, TN, in 1970, innovating the skilled nursing industry by creating a nursing home with as much "home" as "nursing. We continue to build on his vision and serve our residents and patients with the same passion for quality care and comfortable living.

Our Commitment to Care

Every person we care for deserves individualized care developed around their personal health needs, so Life Care Centers of America offers a variety of services and options to accommodate our patients and residents. While skilled nursing is central to our calling, we also provide inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, post-operative recovery and other services such as Alzheimer's and dementia care. Many of our locations are part of continuum-of-care campuses with independent and assisted living options.

Walk to End Alzheimer's National Team

Battling Alzheimer's disease has been a priority of Life Care Centers of America since the opening of our first facility in 1970. It is our prayer that we can provide an environment that allows our patients with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia to be encouraged, appreciated and loved. Our hope is for a cure. A cure that can save the memories and dreams of millions of Americans who live with the disease. Like the Alzheimer's Association, we also dream of a world without Alzheimer's.
