“We are grateful to the Lord that construction has turned into independent living houses, and houses into homes, and the campus into a Christian retirement community. If you come live with us in God’s house at The Baptist Home, our Home is your Home.”

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. For facility admission, most applicants can be accommodated within a few days or weeks; however, at the Ozark campus, the wait could be as long as two years. Independent living housing may have a waiting list of six months to five years, depending on the location. We encourage you to contact the campus of your choice for up-to-date waiting list information.
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.
