Assisted Living (THCA/TNCAL) has named Annie Beatrice Castleberry Allen, a resident at Northside Health Care Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, to its annual Who’s Who in Tennessee Long-term Care. Honorees in this year’s Who’s Who recognition program include military heroes, educators, entertainers and other elders living in THCA/TNCAL member nursing homes and assisted living communities statewide.
Allen owned Castleberry’s Grocery and a drive-in that was known for its “mile-high” ice cream cones and being a community gathering place. She developed her work ethic while working at Stickney & Griffins pharmacy in the 1940s.
Allen will receive a Who’s Who certificate of achievement during National Nursing Home Week, May 11-17, an event celebrating the staff, residents, volunteers and family members who contribute to the quality of life for those living in our nation’s long-term care facilities. Her profile will also be featured on THCA’s website, http://www.thca.org.
“This year’s theme is ‘The Honor Roll,’” THCA Executive Director Jesse Samples said. “It truly is an honor to recognize these men and women for the many ways they have made a difference in their communities and the lives of others.” Since 1983, the Who’s Who in Tennessee Long-term Care program has recognized more than 2,000 outstanding individuals living in THCA/TNCAL member facilities who have made noteworthy contributions to society and helped shape history through their actions.
Northside Health Care Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a member of THCA/TNCAL, a nonprofit organization whose members include senior living communities throughout the state. For more information on long-term care in Tennessee, visit http://www.thca.org.
