We are a LifeCare retirement community,
but we’re anything but retired.
Located in the heart of Midtown, in a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood, Trezevant is a nonprofit, faith-based, retirement community in Memphis, TN that combines modern charm with traditional Southern style. Trezevant boasts the best offerings in LifeCare; we host independent living, assisted living, memory care, and Health and Rehabilitation Center all in one community.
Four decades ago, Edward H. Little established Trezevant to honor his wife, Suzanne Trezevant Little. She was an exceptional woman who devoted much of her adult life to philanthropic efforts throughout the United States, focusing on schools, colleges, churches and hospitals, especially in the Memphis area.
Today, Trezevant has grown into the Midsouth’s leader in senior living and is beloved by families for generations.
Each day, we will serve as a premier LifeCare community and a celebration of life for senior adults, serving each, enriching each, personalizing and securing peace of mind for all of their lives.
The Trezevant Foundation
The Trezevant Foundation was created in 1981 and chartered as a separate not-for-profit entity to support Trezevant’s commitment to each LifeCare resident. The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of current and future residents while providing support to staff seeking educational advancement. The Trezevant Foundation provides support to residents, staff, families and area non-profits in Memphis, Tennessee. Residents who can no longer meet the financial requirements are supported by foundation donations. Trezevant staff/employees can apply for scholarships to further their education and the foundation also supports other non-profits in the Memphis and Mid-South area.
The Trezevant Foundation is used to enhance the function and activities of the Trezevant community that include both independent and assisted living facilities.
