Edward H. Little & Suzanne Trezevant Little

Our Roots

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 TrezevantFoundation

The Trezevant Foundation was created in 1980 and chartered as a separate not-for-profit entity to support Trezevant’s commitment to each LifeCare resident. The Foundation seeks to enhance its permanent endowment to meet two primary goals:

  • To assist residents who are no longer able to meet the financial requirements for continued residency.
  • To enhance the quality of life of current and future residents.
