Welcome to

MHDS serves approximately 270+ persons and employs more than 450 staff in West Tennessee including Madison, Haywood, Hardeman, Hardin, Decatur, Chester, McNairy, Gibson, Fayette and Henderson counties with varying levels of service.


Service plans are designed for each individual for optimal independence and dignity. Each person’s care is directed by the development of an Individual Support Plan (ISP) with full participation by the recipient or their conservator and all stakeholders providing care or services.
