$6 Million Dedicated to Senior Care in Cumberland County

CROSSVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- Great news for seniors in Cumberland County.

U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander and Rural Development State Director Mary Ruth Tackett today announced a federal investment of $6,004,500 to improve care for seniors in Cumberland County.

The direct loan of $5.5 million dollars will be used to build a nursing home at Uplands Retirement Village.

The intermediate-care facility will have 62 beds.

The facility it will replace was built in 1957.

“These funds will help care for the elderly and clean up wastewater in Cumberland County,” said Alexander. “This is an example of the good work we can do in rural communities when local leaders and the federal government work together.”
