The Tennessee Performing Arts Center is also home to the Nashville Opera and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center is home to the Grammy-winning Nashville Symphony. Music Row is a series of blocks in Nashville that are home to a number of gospel choirs. Lovers of old-time radio can catch a live performance of the Grand Ole Opry, which is the longest running live radio show in the world.

Licensure Terms for Assisted Living in Nashville, TN

An Assisted Care Living Facility (ACLF) is a facility that accepts primarily seniors for domiciliary care and support services. The services provided onsite to its residents may include room, board, non-medical living assistance, and medical services as prescribed by each resident's treating physician. These medical services are limited to the extent not covered by a physician’s order to a home care organization and not actually provided by a home care organization. An ACLF may directly provide such medical services as medication procedures and administration that are typically self-administered. All other services that a home care organization is licensed to provide may be provided in the facility only by a licensed home care organization, except for home health aide services, or by the appropriately licensed staff if the facility is located on the same physical campus as the licensed nursing home.
