About Blakeford


Blakeford is a local, established, not-for-profit 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.


When Blakeford at Green Hills was started in 1996 by a group of local citizens, they never imagined it would become Nashville’s premier provider of senior lifestyle options. Their goal was to offer a happy, healthy and safe home for their family members and other loved ones.

That they did.

Blakeford at Green Hills Life Plan Community

The not-for-profit Life Plan Community offers a wide range of lifestyle options and health services matched to each resident’s individual and changing needs to encourage independence, individuality, and privacy. Locally managed, Blakeford at Green Hills has been serving senior adults and their families in Nashville for more than twenty years.

Home Options with Blakeford At Home and LiveWell By Blakeford

Several years ago, the visionaries at Blakeford saw the need for quality care for seniors living at home. They leveraged the expertise of staff members and the reputation of the Blakeford name to start, first, Blakeford At Home and, then, LiveWell By Blakeford.

Blakeford At Home offers care for those who need a hand at home. LiveWell By Blakeford is based on the continuing care model, providing services at home to healthy, independent older adults initially, as well as the assurance of continuing care should they need it.

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.


Blakeford at Green Hills announced on December 11, 2017 that their skilled nursing center, Woodcrest at Blakeford, has received the prestigious Silver Quality Award from the American Healthcare Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).
