About AgeWell Middle Tennessee

Since 1985, AgeWell Middle Tennessee has been a trusted community resource, a catalyst for solutions to unmet needs and an advocate for older adults and caregivers. AgeWell champions informed and positive aging, and helps thousands of older adults and family caregivers each year find information and community resources.

As a unique nonprofit charged with identifying and addressing the unmet needs of older adults and their families, AgeWell Middle Tennessee created Eldercare Coach to help employers and family caregivers.

We help employers cultivate a caregiver-friendly workplace to support the needs of their employees who are caring for aging loved ones. AgeWell offers employer best practices, on-site and virtual Lunch and Learns, individualized 30-minute phone consultations with a geriatric care professional and this online portal for caregivers. Middle Tennessee employers can partner with AgeWell to offer Eldercare Coach as an employee wellness benefit.

For family caregivers not working for an employer that offers Eldercare Coach, AgeWell partners with the GNRC-Area Agency on Aging & Disability to offer sponsored phone consultations as part of the GNRC-AAAD Family Caregiver Support Program.
