“The Live Well program has been a great opportunity for people in our community to help better themselves and, more importantly, live well,” said Angie Stiltner, director of business development at the facility. “Knowing that we are helping people live well at home makes this program worthwhile for us.”

“Life Care Center of Hixson’s Live Well series is an excellent example of offering the community great education and information to help them enjoy wellness, which is exactly what our residents and their families are looking for today,” said Vicki Hood, division director of admissions development.
