Tennessee Facility Research, Licensure & Certifications

David Besnette

Our video tutorial will show our users how to look up facility information in Tennessee using the State of Tennessee’s Department of Health’s Facility Search tool.  This very useful tool can help seniors and their families to find a variety of different types of facilities in Tennessee, including:  Adult Care Homes; Assisted Living Care Facilities; Hospice Care; Nursing Homes and many more. Users will be able to search by county, or the name of the facility.

The information provided is somewhat basic, but it does provide a solid starting point for researching facilities.  Information that they provide includes the facility name, license information, number of beds, administrator or owner name, as well as the facility’s address and contact information.

Currently, it says that there are over 14,000 assisted living ‘beds’ in the state of Tennessee, and 236 facilities.

In addition, our video will explain how people interested in opening their own assisted living facility in Tennessee may start the application and certification process.  We’ll provide a link to the actual application (.pdf) as well.

The information provided from this tutorial should serve as a trusted, unbiased, supplemental way to enhance your research of facilities and any pertinent information regarding assisted living and long-term care in Tennessee.

    I appreciate this information. As I am involved with Tennessee assisted living communities, I too believe it is important to provide information to families so they can find out about licensing and ratings for communities near them.In addition to the sites you mention in the video, I would suggest these as well:

    Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability – http://www.tn.gov/comaging/

    ConsumerHealthRatings.com – http://consumerhealthratings.com/index.php
