CLEVELAND, Tenn. (April 4, 2016) – Legacy Senior Living, a Cleveland, Tenn.- based senior living management company, is launching a company-wide chaplaincy program for residents, loved ones and caregivers at its growing family of senior living communities throughout the Southeast.

The chaplaincy program is headed by Jerry Justice, former Executive Director of Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village, a Legacy Senior Living facility in Rome, GA. The program development began April 1.

Justice is an Ordained Bishop in the Church of God who has a vast array of ministry experience. He has served pastorates in Etowah, Sweetwater and Cleveland, Tenn. Justice also served in the Church of God Ministry to the Military as Director of the Christian Servicemen’s Center in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. Most recently, he served as Executive Pastor of City Church of Chattanooga for 16 years.

“I am pleased that Legacy Senior Living is committed to providing exceptional care for all our residents’ needs; whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual. This chaplaincy program is designed to help us provide meaningful, spiritual care for our residents, family members and staff,” Justice said.

Each Legacy Senior Living facility will look for a chaplain to provide ministry to the residents in keeping with the majority of the residents’ faith. This chaplain will also serve as the liaison to assist the residents that have alternative faith desires and find an alternative spiritual leader to assist them with the individual’s spiritual needs.

“Our mission is to serve our residents with honor, respect, faith and integrity. We take the ‘faith’ part of this statement very seriously and believe that meeting the spiritual needs of our residents and employees is a vital part of the care that we provide,” said Barry Ray, president of Legacy Senior Living.

“Most of our residents have been active in the pursuit of their faith prior to residing in each of our buildings. Our goal is to see that their faith journey only grows during their time with us. Moreover, we want to serve our team members and family members in their times of need,” Justice said.
