The Baptist Home in Chillicothe sits atop a gentle rise overlooking miles of rolling farmland approximately 90 minutes Northeast of Kansas City, Missouri. Because it is situated on the edge of town, the campus offers a quiet, relaxed setting with easy access to all the nearby conveniences. A paved walking path encircles the beautiful city park, a YMCA is available nearby, and each summer the town hosts a college baseball league which offers entertainment for residents and their visiting family and friends.
TBH-Chillicothe offers Independent (Active) Living & Assisted Living and Nursing Care options. Licensed by the State of Missouri for resident and nursing care, both levels of care provide residents a comfortable and safe environment that supports their emotional, spiritual, physical and social needs.
The Baptist Home-Chillicothe Valley provides a variety of meals and snacks each day for residents. Dietary staff work with the resident’s dietary needs and tastes to ensure that nourishing and enjoying meals are provided. Click to view a sample menu.

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.
