The Baptist Home Ozark is strategically situated in Southwest Missouri, making it attractive to those interested in a more suburban lifestyle. Springfield (Missouri’s third-largest city) is a ten minute drive North, Branson is 30 minutes South and the famous Lambert’s Cafe (Home of Throwed Rolls) is just one mile from the campus.

Its proximity, however, does not take away from the beauty of its large, open lawn, or its trees and colorful flowers. Inside, the Ozark Home feels open and peaceful, with high ceilings and an abundance of natural light. TBH-Ozark 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 Have Memory Care or Accept Residents with Alzheimer’s or Other Dementias?2021-03-03T09:37:20-06:00

Yes, the Baptist Homes is dedicated to providing person-centered care. Memory care, which is also called Dementia or Alzheimer’s care, is usually tailored for the unique needs of the resident. The Baptist Homes practice Inclusive Memory CareSM that includes specialized training for our staff that allows residents to stay connected to their campus’s community and chapel services rather than being locked away in an “Alzheimer’s Ward.”

How Much Can I Expect to Pay at the Baptist Homes for my Care?2021-03-03T09:43:04-06:00

The Baptist Homes strive to provide quality health care at an affordable price. While the Baptist Homes are 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. Financial assistance may be available for those who are unable to pay the full cost of their care. The need for financial assistance can be discussed during the admission process.

How Long is the Waiting List for Admission?2021-03-03T09:43:27-06:00

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 availability information.

What is the Age Requirement to Become a Resident?2021-03-03T09:44:06-06:00

There is no longer a minimum age requirement to be a resident of the Baptist Homes.

Do I Have to be a Baptist and a Missouri Resident to Enter the Baptist Homes?2021-03-03T09:50:24-06:00

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 Homes?2021-03-03T09:51:05-06:00

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.
