Our Story

15 Years Of Transforming The Standard Of Care
It all started with three young men and a wide-eyed dream of improving the culture and standards of long-term care…

Willowbend Healthcare and Rehabilitation is a senior care community nestled in the rapidly growing, spirited city of Marion, Arkansas. The area feels like a small community, but offers the perks of big-city life in nearby Memphis. As part of a bustling transportation and distribution hub, the city helps boost the local economy.

Our unique care community offers the comfort of a choice hotel, a progressive activity program for all seniors, and the charm of an outdoor barbeque– all in the comfort of a small neighborhood.


With over 15 years of experience in caregiving, Willowbend, a nonprofit organization, continues to transform the standard of care in nursing homes. Our passion for healthcare and rehabilitation is evident in everything we do.

Willowbend is dedicated to providing healthcare that is well beyond ordinary for you or your loved one who can no longer live safely or comfortably at home. We offer long-term care and short-term rehabilitation services in a home-like environment using innovative processes that foster healing and help create a new, independent lifestyle.


Whether you’re a retired senior recovering from knee surgery anxious to return to the golf course or a widow who wants the security of community living, we have a home for you. During your stay at Willowbend, we help you live life to the fullest.


Our emphasis on social living combined with our diverse activity program brings out the best in our residents – and our team of caregivers. To allow individual relationships with each resident to blossom, our dedicated caregivers deliver a personalized care experience to meet each resident’s needs and desires.
