Who we are
LifeCare Foundations is a faith based non-profit organization founded to provide services to seniors and those with disabilities to ensure a high quality of life is maintained in the community based setting.
Licensed by the TN Department of Human Services and the TN Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, LifeCare Foundations opened mid-year 2010 initially to provide Personal Support Services. The Adult Day Program opened in late 2010. LifeCare Foundations grew out of the need recognized by its founder, LifeCare Family Services, to serve the senior population and those with disabilities. LifeCare Family Services is a licensed community mental health center that offers a full range of behavioral health services to meet the needs of children, adults, and families. In 2010, LifeCare Family Services, expanded its array of services to include primary care.
Integrated Care is at the forefront in today’s health care environment. LifeCare Foundations and LifeCare Family Services offer a unique form of integrated care in which the client can receive long term care, behavioral health, and primary care within the same facility. The LifeCare Foundations Adult Day Program has the added benefit of having access to daily nursing services provided by the LifeCare Foundations nursing staff and the LifeCare Family Services nursing staff.
The mission of LifeCare Foundations is to provide services to seniors and those with disabilities to ensure a high quality of life is maintained in the community based setting. Maintaining the family unit during all phases of the life span is a priority. The agency is commited to providing services in the community to assist and support families to continue care for their loved ones at home and avoid premature or unnecessary institutionalization.
LifeCare Foundations operates under the philosophy of “person centered care”. Person centered care embodies the belief that the individual should be treated with dignity, respect and love. Care should be individualized based on the specific needs of the client and family. Helping people and their loved ones maintain health and independence for as long as possible is a primary goal. Professional, well trained, committed staff members are vital to this philosophy.
