Experience Active Independent Living in a Home You Own

At Uplands Village, you won’t find standard senior housing floor plans. Our unique Tennessee retirement community offers a variety of residences that you can own—from single-family homes and duplexes to more unique options like a geodesic dome!

Each of our homes is comfortable, affordable, and nestled in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. With established neighborhoods of friendly neighbors, our independent living community offers an active and vibrant community life, a sense of belonging, and purposeful living in mind, body, and spirit. 

Even though you own the home, we take care of your house and yard maintenance for a small monthly fee, so you can spend more time doing what you love. Our 55-plus community of active residents hail from across the U.S. and even some foreign countries. With a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, they are united by a shared belief that service to others makes retirement more fulfilling. 

We offer social and community engagement opportunities that enable you to make a difference in ways that matter most to you. Do as much, or as little, as you like. Independent living at Uplands Village means you can spend your time however you choose.


Spend Your Days as You Wish

Many residents tend to their own gardens or spend time in our communal garden, while others prefer to take a course at our Uplands Lifelong Learning Institute and continue to learn for a lifetime. Many of our residents even choose to volunteer their time on campus at Fletcher House or Wharton Homes

We believe every day can be a new and wonderful experience, or you can settle into a daily routine that fits your lifestyle. Independent living at Uplands Village is all about personal choice, preference, and control.

If future healthcare needs ever arise, we provide a full spectrum of care services on our campus, including 24/7 home health services provided by licensed nurses, an on-site health clinic, respite care, outpatient rehabilitation therapies, and a wide variety of wellness programs.
