Our Community

From the moment your loved one wakes up in the morning, our nurses, therapists, and trained staff will be there to help them work and heal throughout the day.

Their day will be filled with three prepared meals cooked by our dietary staff. We encourage you to stop in and try the food! We are very proud of our excellent dining services. Our activities department is always up to something fun. From playing games to spending time outdoors to preparing for upcoming holidays, the staff is constantly working to provide socialization and fun for our residents. Our therapy department will work with your loved one’s physician or surgeon to determine a schedule and goals for these services. Many civic and religious organizations schedule time at our communities to entertain and worship and we are ever so thankful for the communities that give so much to our residents.


It all started with one very special lady.

My grandmother, Wilma Louise Collins, was the inspiration for the name WLC. It is not uncommon for people to ask, “Does WLC stand for With Loving Care?” While it isn’t exactly what I intended, it perfectly describes the woman who inspired it all and the dedication of hundreds of team members who work in these homes every day. My grandmother is a beautiful and caring person that taught and shaped me to become the man I am today. It was only natural and fitting for this business to be named with her in mind.

WLC Management Firm, LLC was formed in March of 2017. While we are a new company, our management team brings a combined 150 years of experience in elder care, nursing, and administration.

Our mission is simple. We believe in providing the best in quality care, nursing, and life while focusing on increasing health care standards for those in need. No matter the situation, our team is experienced, focused, and driven to provide as much of a homelike environment as possible while providing 24/7 nursing care.

Our motto is this: These are the short or long-term homes of the residents, and we have an opportunity to increase their quality of life, happiness, and health by providing exceptional skilled care in a comfortable environment. We understand the situations and emotions involved with choosing the right care community. Our homes cover a broad range of specializations to meet the needs of you or your loved one. We encourage you to stop by and speak with the administrators, the nursing team, our dietary staff, and the dedicated housekeeping employees to learn more. The office staff at WLC is also extremely knowledgeable and will assist you with kindness and compassion.
