Current Job Opening: Direct Care Staff

Welcome to Resilient Life Care

Approaching Life with Purpose

Our facility is an upscale home with seven beds for people with acquired brain injury. We are located just outside of Louisville, Kentucky in bucolic Oldham County. Residents of this 32-acre ranch will benefit from beautiful housing that is currently being remodeled with their comfort and safety in mind. This Kentucky equestrian-style ranch includes walking trails to view the beautiful scenery and horses. It is located near quaint downtown La Grange, which provides unlimited opportunity for community involvement. With all the beauty of rolling hills and trees combined with city charm, we look forward to all our residents approaching life with purpose.

Persons with moderate to severe brain injuries are often unable to live independently. Due to the constant need for assistance or supervision, they cannot safely maintain quality of life at home. This is due to two facts:

  1. Acquired brain injury affects every facet of a person’s physical, cognitive and emotional being.
  2. Families often lack the specialized training and resource management required to adequately care for the multitude of concerns associated with brain injury.

Resilient Life Care is designed and staffed to meet the needs that may overwhelm loved ones and family.

Resilient Life Care provides convenient access to many local resources in the town of La Grange, Kentucky, such as restaurants, movies and shopping as well as parks, museums and botanical gardens. Further, we work with local businesses to provide vocational and volunteer opportunities for those residents wanting more community involvement. For those in need of additional rehabilitation, we work with local rehab experts to provide in-home or outpatient therapy.

Our Philosophy

Individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI) face obstacles that people with other types of injuries do not. Often, they have physical challenges associated with their accident. But they also deal with cognitive and emotional issues that can be lifelong. Resilience is the ability to withstand or recover from difficult conditions. This sentiment of our company name is at the core of our philosophy. Our goal at Resilient Life Care (RLC) is to assist all our residents to thrive in an otherwise overwhelming life situation. We believe that “Approaching Life with Purpose” means that our residents deserve a life that is active and meaningful. We seek to support them to remain healthy, have positive relationships and experience community. People thrive in a living environment where they are accepted, challenged and supported.


Who We Serve

Resilient Life Care (RLC) serves adults with acquired brain injury (ABI) who are medically stable, are not a danger to themselves or others and have the potential to interact with their community.

Residents at RLC should be willing to take their medications voluntarily. One of the biggest challenges for individuals with cognitive disabilities is the difficulty of being part of a community. This can lead to the feeling of isolation and the inability to fit in. It is important to feel a sense of purpose and belonging.

Our services are specifically for individuals with ABI and are provided by trained and caring staff. We invite you to learn more about RLC and contact us for more details.

RLC offers a home-like setting with daily activities in a safe and secure environment.
