“We envision a small community with open green space, shrubs, gardens and trees. There will be a variety of buildings, including Independent Living Duplexes, Congregate Living Apartments, small Assisted Living Homes and a Community Center for activities and chapel. In our Continuum of Care Retirement Community, people will enjoy active living and support one another through later stages of life. I look forward to helping develop The Baptist Home at Ashland where we will provide Christian caregiving and community living.”
– Steve Long, Founding Administrator

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, The Baptist Home is dedicated to providing person-centered care. We have a high staff-to-resident ratio which
allows us to provide personal attention and quality care to each of our residents, including those with Alzheimer’s
related dementias and other dementias.
The Baptist Home strives to provide quality health care at an affordable price. While The Baptist Home is not a
Medicare or Medicaid provider, our staff will work with the resident and family to find available resources to help
cover the cost of care.
This will largely depend upon the campus you choose and the housing arrangement you require. Except for
independent living housing, most applicants can be accommodated within a few days or weeks. Independent
living housing may have a waiting list of six months to two years, depending on the location.
There is no longer a minimum age requirement to be a resident of The Baptist Home. In 2006, the trustees
removed the requirement that a person must be at least 65 years of age to enter.
No, in 2006 the Board of Trustees of The Baptist Home voted to have an open admissions policy. One scriptural
basis for this is Galatians 6:10 which states we are to “do good to all people, especially the household of faith.”
No, this policy was changed in 1981. Turning over all of your assets is no longer a requirement for admission.
Residents or their responsible parties can manage their own funds and receive a bill for services.
