Life Care Centers of America supports the Alzheimer’s Association as a National Team for the Walk to End Alzheimer's. Since 2014, teams organized by our local facilities have collectively raised more than $500,000!
John York, a sound engineer at Life Care's corporate office worked together with his entire family to write, perform and record a song in memory of their grandmother, who passed away from the disease. We are proud to share that song and the music video made with the York family’s help.
As a privately owned company, Life Care distinguishes itself with more than 46 years of experience, stability, and success.
In 1970, Forrest L. Preston, chairman and CEO, opened the first facility, and today, Life Care operates more than 200 skilled nursing facilities in 28 states and employs more than 38,000 associates. Rooted in a Judeo-Christian ethic, two foundational principles were at play, then and now:
1. Patients and residents are our highest priority and deserve superior quality care and customer service.
2. Our associates are our most valuable resource in serving those entrusted to us.
The goal of each facility is to be a full partner in the continuum of health-care services in the community in which it operates. Our facilities specialize in skilled nursing, post-acute care, and inpatient and outpatient therapy in well-equipped, onsite rehabilitation gyms. Many of our centers provide Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
Our associates are key to Life Care's growth and commitment to providing quality patient care. We recognize that positive patient and facility outcomes only happen with dedicated, engaged associates who are driven by excellence.
Life Care provides opportunities through education and advancement to help associates reach their maximum potential for personal and career growth. We recognize and reward associates for their contributions, in addition to providing competitive pay and benefits. Life Care encourages associates to express their ideas and make suggestions as part of our interdisciplinary team approach to patient care. – less
