Located conveniently between Columbia and Jefferson City, our Ashland location sits on 73 beautiful acres on the west side of U.S. 63. Our new homes offer a small-town feel with all the conveniences of the city only 15 minutes away. The campus is currently strictly independent living, with beautiful 2- and 3-bedroom duplexes and 1-bedroom Congregate Living apartments. Construction has begun on future Assisted, Intermediate, and Skilled Nursing care, along with the Duke-Nelson chapel. Once completed, Baptist Homes of Ashland will be a full continuum of care facility. Currently, the Ashland campus offers:
- Independent Living
- 3-bedroom, Patio-Home Duplexes
