Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a member of a Baptist church to live at Baptist Village?
No, we serve people 55 or better.
What are the age requirements?
55 or better.
Why choose 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
Do I pay to use the transportation services?
Regularly-scheduled trips are planned for shopping, entertainment and other activities. Additional individual roundtrip transportation is provided for a fee.
Are there scheduled activities?
Baptist Village has many life enrichment opportunities scheduled for residents. You are free to participate whenever you please. Health and wellness, gardening and out-of-town trips are available, to name a few.
Can I have friends and relatives over to visit? What about overnight guests?
Absolutely! Your guests are always welcome to visit you. Overnight guests may stay with you in your home or rent a furnished guest apartment – call the Village near you to learn more about rates.
Why do you not call your villages “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.
