Renaissance Terrace Assisted Living is announcing they will be shutting down April 15, 2022. "The facility opened with 50 resident rooms and community areas in 2008."

The facility gets $1,305 a month per resident from the TennCare Choices program. Most of us know that will not cover the necessary care for these residents. The facility has been losing $30,000 a month.

The "TennCare CHOICES program still has not released the $137,500,000 in new funds to home and community-based services (HCBS), such as Renaissance Terrace, from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)."

A small portion of those funds would keep this facility running for years. But, we know the kind of people running the Tennessee state government right now. Uncaring people.

It would be nice to contact someone who might support maintaining this facility, but I can only think of people from other states.

Update from KnoxTNToday, "Lt. Gov. Randy McNally, Tennessee Sen. Richard Briggs respond to Renaissance closure."
