About Us - Thrive at Brow Wood

Come To Live Here.

We believe that if a community’s focus is strictly on care, they don’t care enough. At Thrive at Brow Wood, great care is just a by-product of bigger and better things.

Come To Live Here.

Right on Lookout Mountain is a community designed by locals who had a vision to bring a world class living environment to our mountain. The result has topped even their own high expectations. Here, Elders learn, mentor, dance, laugh, and make friends. Is it something in the mountain water? No, it’s Thrive’s fresh perspective on senior living.

We believe your Elder’s life has value, which is why we surround them with team members who will fast become friends. They’ll live in a mountain resort, built with timbers and stone. We’re at Brock Drive, on Lookout Mountain. And just next door, Covenant College brings all of the benefits and energy that come with being a nationally ranked institution.

But it gets better. We believe that every Elder deserves the chance to excel, so we offer a full spectrum of care. If needs arise in the years to come, all of our team members are NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified, which is a mouthful to say, but simply means that our team members are prepared and qualified to interact with your loved one as a unique human being, not a case study. Come visit us. You’ll see that life is just better up here.

Meet the Team.

Thrive team members (employees) come to work each day to build long lasting friendships with our Elders. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields. Simply put, our leaders believe that if we treat our team well, they will, in turn, love our residents well.

What We Offer: Independent Living, Assisted Living & Memory Care


We have three living options under one roof.

Independent Living is for our residents who are loving the later years of life and looking to downsize or find a close knit community of friends. It’s a wonderful mix of daily social events and peaceful retreat to your own suite. Envision a cruise ship on land.

Assisted Living is ideal for residents who value their independence, but may need assistance with daily activities. Our community team members are raving fans of encouraging independence with assistance readily accessible at all times of day.

Memory Care is for our Elders who are living with some form of memory loss. Every member of the Thrive at Brow Wood team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified. That includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. The education allows us to interact with our memory care residents as unique individuals rather than objects in need of care. Residents are engaged with the goal of helping them recapture moments of memories and the recognition of loved ones.
