The first step in applying for residency at The Baptist Home is to complete and submit a short application. Upon receipt, your Administrator will review the application, request additional information if necessary and contact you confirming that your application is being processed.
Your application will be reviewed by the campus administrator. A short interview will be required to assess if The Baptist Home is able to provide for the applicant’s welfare and medical needs. A review of finances will also be required if the applicant needs benevolent care assistance. Very few applicants are ever denied admission to The Home for inability to provide care or because of limited financial resources. Applications that fall outside of normal admission guidelines must be reviewed by the Executive Committee of The Baptist Home.
If approved you will be placed on the waiting list for the next available space, or if space is available, given the opportunity to become a resident or pass until a later date.
When entering The Home, you will need to sign a resident agreement and complete an Advance Healthcare Directive. We also encourage you to have a legal estate and aging plan in place. A legal estate and aging plan defines contact persons and responsible parties and may be comprised of a Durable Power of Attorney for financial and health decisions, a will and/or a trust. You can develop these documents with your own advisors, or The Baptist Home staff can assist you.
