Nashville-based geriatric care services company LifeLinks announced today the acquisition of Aging Family Services, a similar entity located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Financial terms of the deal, LifeLinks’ first acquisition to date, are not being disclosed, according to a release.
The acquisition results in seven Aging Family Services employees joining LifeLinks and is the "first step" in the elder care management and advocacy company’s long-term expansion plan, according to owner and Chief Executive Officer Gretchen Napier.
“We are so excited to be able to bring our services to the people of Raleigh,” Napier (pictured) said in the release. “We look forward to continuing to expand the LifeLinks mission and core values into different markets this year and beyond.”
Cheryl Theriault, former AFS owner, is continuing as the leader of the Raleigh office. Her title is now NC Triangle area president.

The company said at the time that as its expands to other markets, Jackson will oversee operations in Nashville.
Prior to the promotion, Jackson had served as care manager at LifeLinks since 2010.
LifeLinks coordinates communication with doctors, health care facilities and in-home providers. Offering a roster of registered nurses, social workers, counselors, gerontologists and physical therapists, the company was founded in 2002.
Aging Family Services has been in business since 1993.
