We are approaching the development of our new campus at Ashland with a slightly different perspective. We envision a campus with a small town feel, built with independent living duplexes and congregate living apartments along with assisted living and intermediate care units in a home-like setting with state-of-the art design. We envision a campus surrounded by trees and gardens with a chapel for worship. It is our greatest desire to design a Christian retirement community that looks and feels like home, yet provides quality, affordable care as needs change due to aging.

You might ask, “Why should I support this new campus of The Baptist Home?” or “What makes The Baptist Home different than any other retirement community?” We believe that the care The Baptist Home provides is as unique as the culture in which it is provided. Our Philosophy of Care (www.thebaptisthome.org/philosophy) has evolved through caring for the aging for over a century and focuses on fostering genuine relationships, independence, respect, community and fullness of life for each of our residents.
