Mr. Life Care: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Life Care Centers of America is honored to publish LEADER magazine, a yearly publication sharing the special stories and unique accomplishments of several of our amazing residents.

One such resident is Claude Ogle, a 101-year-old resident of Life Care Center of Cleveland, Tennessee. Ogle has a charming smile and sharp wit, which has earned him great popularity around the facility and in the community. In 2015, Ogle was even named "Mr. Life Care!"

Enjoy Ogle's story, as well as the stories of seven other residents from around the country, in the latest issue of LEADER magazine, available at your local Life Care center or online.
