1. Do I have to be a member of a Baptist church to live at Baptist Village, and are there any age requirements?
No, anyone 55 or better is welcome to live at Baptist Village.
2. Why choose a not-for-profit?
As a not-for-profit, we benefit from continuous ownership by the same organization and direction from a dedicated board of directors. Additionally, all revenue generated by Baptist Village Communities is reinvested directly into the community, where it belongs. A not-for-profit also provides peace of mind through stringent financial guidelines, including the following:
- Strict government regulations
- Reduced operating costs that result in lower, stabilized monthly service fees
- Favorable tax credits and exemptions, which add up to greater savings for residents
- No investor dividends
- The security of knowing you'll never be asked to leave due to the inability to pay
3. Do I pay to use the transportation services?
Free regularly-scheduled trips are planned for shopping and entertainment. Additional individual roundtrip transportation is provided for a fee.
4. Are there scheduled activities?
Baptist Village has many life enrichment opportunities scheduled for residents. You are free to participate whenever you please. Learning centers, gardening and out-of-town trips are available, to name a few.
5. Can I have friends and relatives over to visit? What about overnight guests?
Your guests are always welcome to visit you. Overnight guests may stay with you in your home or rent a furnished guest apartment.
6. Why do you not call your facilities "retirement centers" or "nursing homes"?
Baptist Village Communities leads the way in the aging services field. One of the reasons is our use of better, more accurate terminology. To view a list of the new terminology we use, click here.
7. Is there assistance available for those who have a financial need?
Yes, Baptist Village offers financial assistance to those with a need through the Larry & Edwine Adams Assistance Fund.
