The Comfort And Security Of A Lifecare Community.
With lifecare, our residents have the security of knowing that they can access assisted living or nursing care and additional care is available should it be needed. Lifecare makes it possible to move seamlessly from one service to another, then back to independent living as one’s needs change. Specialized memory care also is available for those with Alzheimer’s and cognitive challenges, at nearby Alexian Brothers Valley Residence. All of these services are provided for a one-time, entrance fee and a monthly maintenance fee.
We are CARF-CCAC accredited. Alexian Village is accredited by the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF-CCAC), the first retirement community in Tennessee (and still one of the few in the state) to be recognized for excellence. CARF-CCAC is the nation's only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) and other aging services networks. Continuing Care Accreditation Commission

WHAT ROLE DOES LONG TERM CARE INSURANCE PLAY?
Typically, when a person's care needs and related costs allow for reimbursement from a long term care insurance policy, the payment goes directly from the insurance company to the policy holder. Long term care insurance policies vary in numerous ways including your requirements for reimbursement. We recommend you contact your LTC Insurance provider to review the details of your plan.
