Maybelle Carter Retirement Living

At Maybelle Carter, everyday can be as enriching as you choose it to be. Whether you prefer active social interaction or a quiet afternoon, it means finding a home that allows you to be yourself and belong.

It means never settling for a place to call home. It means finding a home that allows you to let loose and follow your passions. It means the freedom to do what you want, when you want - without the stress that comes with home repairs.

With maintenance-free living at Maybelle Carter Living, you can pursue it all. Our community team does all the work for you, giving you the opportunity to shop with friends, visit your grandkids, or golf the day away. Whatever makes you happy, you can do it here.

Maybelle Carter is a well established and trusted community. Residents get to know their neighbors and make new friends. Living areas provide great opportunities to interact and socialize. Best of all, with our dedicated team members on staff, residents feel more connected and cared about from day-one.

Just ten minutes north of Nashville, TN and comfortably nestled on seven lovely landscaped acres- Maybelle Carter Senior Living Community has much to offer. Here you’ll find a park-like setting, rolling lawns, mature trees and flowers, and even a vegetable garden. Built on the former estate of country music legend “Mother” Maybelle Carter (Johnny Cash’s mother-in-law), residents enjoy an active lifestyle of learning and growing, contribution and community.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living is ideal for older adults who want to maintain independence, but may require supportive care.  Live in your own apartment while enjoying chef-prepared meals, transportation, housekeeping and maintenance services, planned social, fitness and recreational activities.  For those who are feeling isolated at home, or when home care becomes a burden to schedule, and relying on family, friends and outsourced services are not enough, assisted living is a great option. Assistance with personal care, medications, gentle reminders, and ambulation are available. 

Well-established in Madison, Tennessee, Maybelle Carter Living has been a trusted provider of quality assisted living for over 30 years.  Vitality Living is committed to continuing to earn this well-deserved trust and to bring a vibrancy to the community and our residents, regardless of physical or cognitive challenges.

Memory Care

Older adults living with dementia benefit from an environment built especially for them. Our memory care employs an engagement-focused philosophy founded on the belief that everyone has an innate ability to learn and succeed, no matter the degree of cognitive impairment. Supportive care services include engagement, personal hygiene, reminders, and medication assistance in a secure environment.

The neighborhood settings are specifically designed for independence, engagement and success. Live in your own apartment while enjoying chef-prepared meals, transportation, housekeeping and maintenance services, planned social, fitness and recreational activities. Design choices - including lighting, colors and access to fresh air and sunshine are carefully incorporated. We know that memory loss affects each person differently. Programs, care and services tailored to each individual.

Maybelle Carter is proud to be part of Vitality Living, a well-respected name in the senior living business.  Vitality is a team of seasoned retirement living professionals passionate about creating vibrant communities for older adults, regardless of physical or cognitive challenges. Our goals are to eliminate labels that reinforce stereotypes of aging, to empower choice, and to create environments where all residents are successful.

Vitality’s leadership firmly believes that the industry must evolve and change to more capably meet the wants, tastes and demands of the older adults of the future. Every team member is inspired to reimagine the experience of older adults living in a community setting. We challenge every perception, advocate for choice, and reject the status quo.

Care at Maybelle Carter

One of the hardest things my family had to do was to bring our mother to Maybelle Carter Memory Care. After seeing the nurses take care of her when she was sick and give her medicine to her daily. Watching the caregivers take care of her, talking with her, laughing with her even giving her nick names. We now know it was the best thing for her. Thanks Maybelle Carter for taking care of our mother.
