Our residence is designed to enhance our residents’ ability to enjoy life. From entertaining in their own apartment to enjoying the company of other residents in one of our beautiful common areas, our residents truly make Hearthside their “home.”

When we built our community, we did so with careful consideration of our residents in mind…a place we would want for our own mother and father.


Q. Will someone call us if our family member needs to go to the doctor or is having a problem with their medicines?

A. Our professional staff is always in quick communication with the family if any resident appears to be in need of emergency medical care, needs to see their personal physician, or is having problems with their medicines. Your loved one’s healthcare and safety are our highest priorities.

Q. Our family member requires a restricted diet. Will your dietary staff work to accommodate their needs?

A. Our professional dietary staff prides itself in their extra effort to please personal preferences and accommodate medically restricted diets, while serving nutritious and delicious meals 3 times a day.

Q. Are nutritious snacks and drinks available at times other than meal time?

A. Fruits, cereals, drinks, ice cream, and a variety of other snack items are available at several locations for our residents 24 hours a day.

Q. What if our family member needs assistance during the night?

A. Our staff is on duty 24 hours. every day of the year to provide assistance for all residents. Each apartment is equipped with emergency call stations located in the living area and bathroom.

Q. Why is Hearthside a “non-profit” and does that make a difference?

A. Hearthside was built in 1994 as a service to this community by a local church. They designed Hearthside to be operated as a “non-profit” service for the benefit of senior citizens and their families. Hearthside was the first facility of its type built in our community and has been serving this community for amost 20 years. We believe our residents benefit from their care not depending on a corporation having to make a “profit” and from their facility not being part of a corporate chain headquartered many miles away.


Hearthside Senior Living’s Assisted Living offers a beautiful, chalet-like atmosphere with large dining and activity spaces, including small, medium, and large studio apartments. For more than 20 years, our assisted living has been a Christian ministry rooted in serving those needing additional assistance with their everyday activities. Located in the heart of Lebanon, Hearthside Senior Living’s Assisted Living continues the tradition of serving senior citizens who desire a safe and beautiful environment – all within a Christian community.

About Hearthside Senior Living

Hearthside is a Christian ministry.

For almost 20 years, Hearthside has provided quality living assistance for members of our community who need extra care in their daily lives. Our dedicated and caring staff is available to offer a helping hand with meals, grooming, bathing, dressing, medication administration or just companionship.

At Hearthside, we take pride in our service to our residents and our truly home-like atmosphere. We make every effort to preserve and promote the dignity and independence of our residents.

Offering our local community:

  • a locally owned assisted living facility
  • a non-profit assisted living provider
  • a Christian environment
  • largest private assisted-living rooms
  • and now an independent living community

We know the importance of finding the proper care for a mother, father, or family member. We understand each situation is personal and unique. We work to ensure that individual needs are addressed and appropriately met.

Since our founding in 1994 …our mission has remained steadfast: to provide quality and affordable assisted living services that maximize the quality of life for our residents while preserving connections to family, friends, and the community. Our mission drives every decision we make because our community is our home.

We are the most admired assisted living community in this area as evidenced by our community voting Hearthside “Best of the Best” for 11 years!

Our goals:

  • To provide the ideal combination of services, housing, and lifestyle to achieve the mission of maximizing our residents’ quality of life.
  • To serve our residents with caring hearts. “Heart” is part of our name… and the core of our services.

From the beginning, we have had the same direction, the same name, and the same structure. Our families do not have to worry who is going to own or manage our facility tomorrow. We are here for the long-term…committed to this community, not for profit or personal gain.

HEARTHSIDE at Castle Heights, a Christian retirement community that consists of a 44 room assisted living group home, is dedicated to providing care and compassion to those who choose to make this place their home. Since our founding in 1994, this non-profit organization has a rich history of service in caring for seniors. With an eye towards the future, Hearthside is moving forward with construction on a new community of 30 individual homes designed with the active senior lifestyle in mind.

THE HEIGHTS represents a new concept in active Senior Independent Living here in Wilson County. Through services provided and new low maintenance homes, residents will have more freedom to enjoy themselves. These single family homes will offer previously unavailable options for those active adults who are looking for security and peace of mind in their retirement.

Independent Living

Hearthside Senior Living’s Independent Retirement Community will be a collection of 30 homes—designed for seniors to age in place in a safe, comfortable and Christian environment. The independent retirement community concept includes maintenance-free living, which is a perfect setting for seniors who don’t want the burden of the upkeep of a larger home. The spacious, open floor plan homes are designed with two or three bedrooms, all on one level.
