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.
The Baptist Home-Ozark 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.
