Mission Statement

Blakeford is a local, established, nonprofit provider of quality lifestyle solutions and health services to senior adults that encourage independence, individuality, and privacy while creating both economic value and life enrichment opportunities for all those we serve.

Description

We offer a wide range of lifestyle options and health services matched to each resident’s individual and changing needs from independent living, assisted living, and nursing care. Blakeford at Green Hills has been serving senior adults and their families in Nashville for more than twenty years. Our residents enjoy a variety of activities and life enrichment opportunities such as lifelong learning, social and cultural outings, and events, and wellness classes.

Blakeford at Green Hills and Blakeford at Home are accredited through CARF-CCAC (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities-Continuing Care Accreditation Commission). Blakeford is now one of fewer than 200 Life Plan communities in the country to have achieved this designation and, currently, the only accredited provider in the Middle Tennessee area. This accreditation makes Blakeford At Home the only provider of non-medical home and community services in the state of Tennessee to carry this distinction.

We rely on our volunteers to help create an exciting and active atmosphere for our residents. We are looking for compassionate and energetic individuals who have a passion for learning and a desire to be involved.
