Learn About Our Residences

Alive’s residences in Nashville and Murfreesboro provide 24/7 care when it is needed to stabilize a patient or when a caregiver needs their own respite.

Designed to feel like home, they feature a garden courtyard, family gathering areas, and plenty of space for visitors.

Community Education

Death can be hard to talk about, but we can’t prepare ourselves or those we love if we aren’t brave enough to break the silence. Let us help you start the conversation.

Alive’s Care and Facilities Videos

  • At-Home Hospice Care

    Most Americans say they would prefer to be at home at the end of their lives. We care for ninety percent of our patients in their homes with those they love close at hand.

  • Inpatient Hospice Care

    Alive is the only hospice in Middle Tennessee with two in-patient residences designed to support patients who need around-the-clock help with symptom control, family caregivers who need a respite, and those without another place to call home.

  • Pediatric Hospice

    Our pediatric program helps families find strength when their children face serious and life-threatening illnesses. One mother shares her story to help others, here.

  • Grief Support

    Alive provides grief support to the entire Middle Tennessee community, not just those who had a loved one in our care. Our expert grief counseling is affordable thanks to the support of our donors.

  • Grief Support Camps

    Children and teens need a safe place to heal from grief and have fun with friends experiencing the same thing. When you support Alive, you make this possible.
