Fellowship Home of NashvilleWelcome

Nashville, also known as “The City of Dogwoods,” is the county seat of Berrien County. It has the convenience and technology of larger communities but still loaded with the southern charm and atmosphere one would expect in the old south.

Our convenient location on 5 acres is right next door to South Georgia Medical Center’s Berrien County campus and near several local physicians’ offices to provide you easy access to healthcare when you need it most.  And, the heart of Nashville’s restaurant scene and shopping district is just a few blocks away.

We are excited you are taking the time to get to know us.  Our desire is to share our family tradition with yours. We hope as you get to know us, you will see us as an extended family with your best interests in mind.

Care/Services

Our personal care staff is available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We encourage our residents to be as independent as possible while providing a team that is always available to assist with any activity of daily living.

Some of the services we provide include:

ALC Licensure – We hold an Assisted Living Community (ALC) license that allows us to expand the care and services we provide.  As the needs of our residents’ change, this license often allows them to remain on our campus, or “age in place,” without having to relocate to a skilled nursing facility. 

Direct Care Staff – We employ our own registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and personal care aides (PCAs). This provides our residents with the ultimate in security, safety, and convenience. 

Medication Management – Our licensed nurses and certified medication aides (CMAs) can supervise or fully administer your medications at the prescribed times and doses using the latest in medication administration technology.

Nurse Call System – If you need anything at any time, just use the designated call button in your room and we’ll respond to your request promptly.

Memory Care – We offer a dedicated living area specifically designed to make life safer and easier for those living with dementia-related memory impairment.

Physical Therapy/Home Health – We make arrangements for physical therapists or nurses from a local home health agency to come see you for virtually any specific skilled need.

Scheduling and Appointments – We provide the service of keeping records of medical appointments, coordinating transportation, and documenting physician’s orders. 

Additional Personal Care Services (as needed) – Daily assistance is available in the areas of bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, mobility, eating, transportation, emotional support, and more.

F.A.Q.

Question: How often can family and friends visit?

Answer: We encourage our residents’ family and friends (including children) to visit as often as they like.

Q: Can residents come and go as they please?

A: Yes. Residents have the same rights living at Fellowship Home as they do in their own home. We do ask that you sign out before leaving the property.

Q: Are utilities included in my monthly charge?

A: Yes. Electricity, water, sewage, and pest control are all included. Basic expanded cable and Internet access are available for a nominal monthly fee. A common telephone is available for private use 24-hours a day. A private line in the resident’s room can be activated at the resident’s expense.

Q: Is living at Fellowship Home (or any senior living community) really cost effective?

A: Financially speaking, we have a “Compare Costs” chart on this web site to help determine whether it’s to your advantage to move in with us. The monthly cost pales in comparison to what you receive in return, considering lifestyle, convenience and security. What price tag can you place on “peace of mind?”

Q: My house is paid-off. Why should I consider living at Fellowship Home?

A: In addition to the answer above, here are three reasons: 1) you’ll avoid the personal hassle and repair costs associated with maintenance and upkeep of a home, 2) some people who live here decide to apply the value/equity from their home to cover many, many years worth of monthly charges and free themselves from the worry of covering the cost of Fellowship Home, and 3) when you consider the convenient, active, and safe lifestyle you’ll experience here, your quality of living increases immensely at Fellowship Home as compared to living alone.

Q: How is the food?

A: The food is both delicious and nutritious. Many of our residents list this as a favorite part of living here.

Q: Do you offer short-term living arrangements?

A: Yes. We offer short-term accommodations for individuals: 1) wanting to try it out for awhile, 2) needing respite care while getting your strength back from a recent surgery, or 3) needing care while your caregiver is away. For a stay less than 30 days, the special short-term rate will be applied.

Q: Can I bring my own furniture and accessories?

Answer: Of course. We encourage you to personalize your room to your liking. We can even help you hang pictures on the wall.  You can also use our standard furnishings, if you prefer.
