Receive Skilled Rehabilitative Care in Our Wellness Center
Our Rehab and Wellness Center is a 31-bed, Medicare A and B certified skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapy center, licensed with the State of Tennessee to provide skilled nursing care and rehabilitative therapies through our partnership with Functional Pathways. The Uplands Wellness Center is designed to help stroke, heart attack, surgery, and joint replacement patients regain confidence and independence while learning new strategies to succeed once they return home.
Our Wellness Center offers housing for our senior guests while working with physical therapists to exercise large muscle groups for balance, strength, and range of motion. This can include learning to transfer from a bed or chair to a standing position, safely walking on different surfaces, or using adaptive equipment such as prosthetics, rollators, or wheelchairs. Every care plan details therapeutic strategies and goals to ensure each guest regains the highest level of function and independence.
Our Wellness Center Features:
- Certified skilled nursing and rehabilitative therapies
- 31 private rooms for short-term rehabilitation patients

Find Relaxation and Rehabilitation at Our Aquatic Center
The Aquatic Therapy Center at Uplands Village houses a large, 20’ x 60’ lap pool for swimmers and a warmer, shallower, water therapy pool that is wheelchair-accessible for conducting aquatic exercise classes and rehabilitative therapies. In addition to an 8-person hot tub, the center has several dressing rooms, including one designated for couples or caregivers to help those who may need additional assistance.
Aquatic therapy provides unique benefits for both rehabilitation as well as general health. Being submerged in the water significantly reduces weight-bearing stress, allowing those with mobility challenges to move more easily in the water. Aquatic therapy also helps to enhance flexibility, range of motion, and reduce stress.
