chillicothe sign and building

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Accept Residents with Alzheimer’s or Other Dementias? 2017-10-18T08:56:24+00:00

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.

How Much Can I Expect to Pay at the Baptist Home for my Care? 2017-10-18T08:56:24+00:00

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.

How Long is the Waiting List for Admission? 2017-10-18T08:56:24+00:00

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.

What is the Age Requirement to Become a Resident? 2017-10-18T08:56:25+00:00

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.

Do I Have to be a Baptist and a Missouri Resident to Enter the Baptist Home? 2017-10-18T08:56:25+00:00

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.”

Do Residents Need to Give All of their Assets to the Baptist Home? 2017-10-18T08:56:25+00:00

No, this policy was changed in 1981. Turning over all of your assets is no longer a requirement for admission.
