Together Paula Allred, a Pharmacist with a health care background, her brother Fred Allred and his wife Brenda purchased the business in 1988. While the business originally started in Jamestown they now have eight locations across middle Tennessee and Kentucky employing approximately 120 people across all stores. The Allred’s are originally from Jamestown and feel like it is a privilege to serve the people in their hometown. They want to make a difference in people’s quality of life by helping them age at home comfortably and they strive to provide jobs for people in the community that they call home. Our focus has been to hire people both with medical experience and others with a desire to learn in order to deliver courteous and knowledgeable professionals to assist with our customer’s needs.
