Our Team

Teams win games, and teamwork makes the dream work. At Trousdale Living Communities, our staff teams work diligently to exceed the expectations of our residents and patients. Above and beyond is where the TLC team plays. Your family becomes our family. Our skilled and caring nursing and medical staff are well educated, experienced and capable, and we have tenured leadership that have significant longevity with TLC facilities.

We employ the most passionate, caring and understanding staff in the industry, and our residents appreciate and benefit from that. We support our employees and know that continuity and consistency of medical and support staff is important to our long-term care residents, who start with us in independent living and can advance through assisted living and into long-term care. Knowing caregiver’s faces conveys trust and familiarity for aging residents who are declining mentally. When you play (and work) for the TLC team, everyone wins.
