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, on the border of Georgia and Tennessee 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, older adults 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 loved one’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 older adult deserves the chance to excel, so we offer a full spectrum of care. If needs arise in the years to come, know that we have a certified memory care team, which 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 older adults. 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.
