Life Care a great partner for Fair Park

CROSSVILLE — "Independence Starts Here" is the motto at Life Care Center of Crossville, a proud sponsor of Fair Park Senior Center and a premier provider of skilled nursing in Crossville. Conveniently located close to the hospital, the facility offers skilled nursing services: occupational, physical and speech therapies in an inpatient and outpatient setting. The facility’s goal is to help patients return home as soon and safely as possible.

Fair Park Senior Center has been a great partner of Life Care Center of Crossville since Life Care’s purchase of the skilled nursing facility in 2009. The facility hosts bingo at the Senior Center monthly, and several members of the senior center volunteer their talents at Life Care.

Life Care Center is supported by a strong leadership and nursing team, which ensures optimal patient care. The facility was recently credentialed by the Joint Commission, the only skilled nursing facility in the area to hold this prestigious certification.

They invited the community to its facility Nov. 1 for a ribbon cutting with the Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce. They were showcasing its new facility renovations, which include new flooring and decor. Even if you missed the open house, you are invited to stop by for a tour any day of the week.

Great sponsors like Life Care Centers who care about seniors is what helps to keep the senior center able to continue to provide activities in many ways for the older population. Everyone at Fair Park Senior Center would like to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving.

Come by and see what Fair Park has to offer you this week. The center is at 1433 Livingston Rd. across from the fairgrounds. Check out the website at www.fairparkseniorcenter.org or call 484-7416.

    Every Wednesday after 1 p.m. from May through October, there is a steady stream of people converging on the kitchen of Heritage Hall on Church St. in Pleasant Hill with baskets and bags. Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County.

Students will return to class on Monday.
