Assisted Living Reviews for Central Baptist Village

I am/was a resident of this facility

After our search for the right nursing home, we moved into Central Baptist Village. She is in Memory Care and I am into Independent living. The care and kindness of the staff, from the top down, have exceeded our expectations. The food is excellent, well presented and served lovingly. The grounds are lovely and peaceful. The entire complex is well cared for.

We are very happy living at CBV. We enjoy many activities and good food everyday. Both staff and residents are very friendly and make you feel as one of the family. Your needs are cared for.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is in Central Baptist Village. The staff is wonderful. They talk to their guests by name and they are very interactive. They have small but adequate room. The food is fine. My mother is quite happy having a nice warm meal and having plenty of it. They are activities, maybe not every day, but throughout the week, there are different things that do come out and they do let them know what kind of things is going on. They have live entertainment and movies available. They also have a library. They have transportation to shopping and doctor's appointment. We are very pleased and I will definitely recommend them to others.

Visited this facility

We explored Central Baptist Village while searching in a facility for our mother who, at the time, had just progressed definitely into what most would call "mid stage" dementia. Our mother's condition was especially critical in our consideration of Central Baptist Village, as opposed to other facilities; I say this because while Central Baptist is clearly a well-run facility with many positive attributes, it may not be the best environment for those who still have the majority of their faculties and are able to function independently. Central Baptist is, indeed, a "village". By this I mean that it consists of three different entities all on the same campus- a senior living apartment complex, an assisted-living facility, and a full-care nursing facility. In this sense, it may be ideal for those seeking long-term stability for those only recently diagnosed with a progressive, debilitating disease. One can establish residence in the independent-living area, then move to other facilities as their condition requires; once at central Baptist Village, one can remain there indefinitely. However, having no need for the independent living or the full-care elements, I can only relay our impression of the assisted living facility. The grounds- set in a pleasant suburban environment- were inviting, and the amenities included inviting common areas and an attractive chapel; however, the overall atmosphere, while efficient and clean, was more "clinical" than we thought ideal for someone still able to comprehend their surroundings. The broad and open hallways, though extremely functional, lacked any considerable warmth; the rooms, though ample in size, lacked personality. Though warmer than hospital rooms, they were decidely utilitarian. Perhaps the most unappealing aspect of the facility was that all residents with any sort of memory issue were under considerable restriction. The majority of the common areas were accessable to residents only with supervision. Of course, while this situation is completely appropriate- ideal, actually- for those whose dementia has advanced to the point where confusion is common, the level of restriction we observed was, we felt , unnecessary and intimidating for those still with their wits about them. In summation, Central Baptist Village's assisted living component is an efficient and comprehensive place for those requiring continuous supervision. The knowledge that one can remain at Central Baptist through their final days is also a considerable asset to many. However, the atmosphere here might not be particularly therapeutic to, nor appreciated by, those who are not yet resigned to their condition.

Provider Response

Thanks for visiting and taking the time to review Central Baptist Village. We have done a lot of growing since your 2011 visit. It’s true we are a Continuing Care Retirement Community with Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Long Term Skilled Nursing, and Short Term Rehabilitation. CB Village is unique in that The Commons for Independent Living is also licensed for Assisted Living in our 96 apartments, allowing our residents to age in place, receiving supportive services without having to move to another part of the building.

What’s new to our community is our continuum of Memory Care. As you pointed out, not everyone with memory deficits need “considerable restrictions.” We agree! When it comes to dementia, one size does not fit all. We saw a need to develop three distinct programs for those with dementia.

We are proud to introduce you to our Continuum of Memory Care.

  • Early Stage Support in The Commons Enrichment Program is for residents who enjoy the vibrant lifestyle of The Commons but need specialized programming and additional services to remain independent

  • Mid-Stage Care in The Terrace blends privacy and care in a secure and socially active atmosphere for residents with mid-stage memory loss

  • Late-Stage Care in The Pavilion has a special care unit that offers 24-hour specialized nursing care in a secure environment for residents with later to end-stage Alzheimer’s and other dementias

Thanks for visiting CB Village and for taking the time to write such a thorough review.

Please stop by and visit us again,

Dawn Zimmerman, Administrator
