The Gaithers have purchased yet another private home in a subdivision for business use in Centertown. Get out the shocking blue paint everybody, they are taking over.

I was wondering about this myself . Are all these businesses in neighborhoods legal? The nursing home in Spencer is filled with psychiatric patients and located across from both schools.I wonder if thats is legal too.Seems a little dangerous, I know of sex offenders and convicted murderers being some of the psych patients.

Maybe just maybe you should go check out generations before you open your mouth about it!!If it wasn't for them I really don't know what I would have done.My daughter,soon to be 37 became mentally ill about ten yrs. ago and it was a nightmare for a couple yrs.My daughter is not crazy by no means but is unable to function with daily activities like myself.I could go into my story but I'm not.Not until you are faced with a situation like I have been do you even begin to understand.Generations is a wonderful place for people that have mental issues and no one to help.I have been to several of the house and as far as I know there is NO murderers and rapists there.People need to watch what they say cause you never know when you might need help at one of these houses with the SHOCKING BLUE PAINT!!!Again,know what your talking about before your so willing to throw slurs!!!

What kills me is that the Gaithers are all hardcore Republicans with pictures of their "Saints" in their offices, but have made all of their money off of the mentally-ill and poor people. The Gaithers don't accept any insurances except Medicaid and Medicare...government-run insurance programs. Methinks Mr. Reagan would be rolling in his grave. Nah. Money is money, even if it comes from a "socialist" program.

So, all psychiatric patients are dangerous? Did you know that 1 out of 4 people will be diagnosed with a mental illness? How many people do you have in your family? Better start arming yourself now.

They own all of the Generations mental health outpatient and group homes. They also tend to flaunt their wealth with gaudy crests, hence the "shocking blue paint" reference.

These facilities are much needed. They should not however be put in a subdivision or any other highly populated street for safety reasons. People work all of their lives and hope to retire in a nice SAFE neighborhood. They say it makes the value of your property go up instead of down. HA HA...I spoke with chief law enforcement officer in Woodbury and they have had many problems with facility there and police have been called many times. I am sure everyone remembers what happened at the Crisp Springs facility between a younger woman and the boys that were staying there. It was front page news a few years back.

From a business prospective they have a really hard time paying their bills. They pay about a third of each bill over 3 to 6 month period. Their business office is a laugh. They are not a help to local community because of their bookkeeping habits.

I worked there for a while, they are a bunch of crooks, they fired me, for a stupid reason that they could not prove, because i was innocent. They said i violated company policy, and i didn't, the truth is, melissa brown, the house manager didn't want me working there any more because two weeks before i got fired, she bought me beer, and drank it with me, i was only 19. So the facilities are there for very good reasons, and yes, there are rapist, child sex offenders, and other violent offenders in the facility, but they are so drugged up, by the generations nurses, that they are rarely a danger to anyone. The Gaithers and their entire staff need to look into the mirror and realize that they are horrible people, who will do anything to get ahead in life. I had to pursue legally to try and get my records in their office wiped, with no luck, and if it werent for TN laws that keep that information locked away in poor melissa brown and melissa kings offices, i would not be able to get a decent job. They are all crooks, but don't look down upon the patients for it, they are just trying to regain their lives back..

They want everyone around them to keep their property in A1 shape and then they bring out the gaudy blue and all the fencing as you say, and they stand out a mile away. Yeah, I heard about the incident on Crisp Springs road where a girl overseer molested the boys that were there. It was in the paper.

Yes not only are they "legal", but it is is illegal to band any human from any neighborhood...no matter what their illness or what they have done in their past, especially if it was during a time when their illness had caused them to break the law/hurt others and they were not on medications that stabilizes said illness. At least these poor folks are being cared for and monitored. All neighborhoods have humans living in them that have commited crimes. Furthermore, if there are humans residing at the nursing home, then they are nursing home age and/or they require a lot of physical care. If they have done something in their past that was hurtful to someone, they are not capable of that now...

Obiviously, you are mis-informed. The level/s of housing that is provided by numerous people, including the Gaithers was created by the TennCare/Medicaid program. The state requires that the individuals housed there have this type of coverage, not the Gaithers. It was created so that people who are suffering with this life altering illness can have some normalcy in their lifes and not be stuck in psych wards forever. If this were your child, you would have a different prespective. Furthermore, political agenda aside, the Gaithers have only provided this type of housing for the past ten to twelve years, for fourty to fifty years prior to that they made their living in other ways. Untrue, also is your statement about the Gaithers not excepting other insurances for the housing..other insurances don't cover this service. If they did, it would be excepted! They do except different types of payment for outpatient services. Be informed, prior to posting!

There are numerous people in the counties where there are Generations housing that have different tastes on what they like in their yards...which looks just as gaudy to other people...that is a matter of choice. You don't like it don't look at it!
About the situation on Crisp Springs RD, as bad as it was...and this kind of thing is bad...it was only one male and that male was days away from being of age...the personnel was barely above age. She made very bad dicision! She decided to begin a relationship with this male that was basicly her age...obviously you didn't read the article very well. Agreed it should have never happened!
However her decision had nothing to do with the Gaithers or their professionalism!

They are one of the largest employers in this area, suppling hundreds of job positions. Those employees spend their pay checks locally and live locally. The company is a benifit to the community and those that they care for!

Are you saying that the families of these folks that suffer with this illness should, band them to the woods, hide them in cabins or place them on islands??? Just what makes the people that have "worked Hard" all their lives superior? For your information, some of the folks that suffer with this illness, worked hard most of their lifes too, they went to college and got married. Some were nurses, office personel and all manner of labors...they had families and children and homes! They didn't chose this! You have no ideal how devestating this illness is do you? It don't care what age you are, what financial status you have, where you live or what you are doing! It can come on you slowly, quickly and without warning. You or the person you are the closest to may be stricken with it at any time. It may happen to your child, spouse, parent, preacher, banker or doctor!
Furthermore, the officers that have responded went mostly to protect the individual from them selves, not to protect others. No one in any community has ever been hurt by a resident of Generations...not one person!
Do you have children? What if those folks were your kids...how would you feel then? Would you want some one to say that they should have limited access to the community? Should we treat them as lepers, band them to a corner of the county, or better yet the state! Who will make this call? YOU? What makes you so prefect? Your work history? The value of your property? Must be nice to be you!
And about the Crisp Springs issue, horrible as it was...as with all of your ramblings you don't have the facts or a qlue!

I own a business where they pay bills 1/3 at a time over 3 to six months and a friend of mine works at another location in office and she says they have the same problem
