Exceptional Care

Baptist Retirement Homes is a corporation made up of two Life Plan Communities offering the full continuum of care, one community offering assisted living and skilled nursing, and a free-standing assisted living community. Our beautiful communities include independent living, assisted living, memory care, and medical and nursing care.

Independent Living

Independent living offers the benefits of living independently with two great advantages. First, we take care of home maintenance while residents pursue an independent and engaged, purposeful life. Second, residents enjoy priority access to on-site healthcare, including assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care.

Assisted Living

Assisted living helps residents who need extra support with activities of daily living — preparing meals, bathing, dressing, managing medications, or other assistance needs. It’s a great way to get the care needed while still enjoying the full community lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Baptist Retirement Homes?


Founded in 1951, Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Incorporated (BRH) is one of North Carolina’s most respected providers of long-term care. With four long-term care facilities located throughout the state, BRH provides all levels of care for older adults, including special programs for seniors with dementia-related disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Baptist Retirement Homes is a not-for-profit, church-related organization that has a historical relationship with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
Are residents of Baptist Retirement Homes primarily Baptists?


At the Brookridge community, 65% of the resident population is Baptist. About 90% of the Western North Carolina community is Baptist. Approximately 50% of the residents at Taylor Glen are Baptist. The Taylor House is primarily composed of Baptist residential populations.
What is the cost of services? Are financial resources available for those who cannot pay?


Fees vary according to communities and the level of care chosen or required by residents. A full schedule of fees for each facility is available upon request. There are no entrance fees associated with any of the health-related areas at the Brookridge and Western North Carolina communities and Taylor House. Taylor House is one of the few not-for-profit, church-related, long-term care communities in North Carolina with no financial requirements for admission. Contributions received from churches and individuals via the North Carolina Offering for Older Adults, in addition to direct contributions from local churches, are used exclusively to help the communities provide care for those older adults with little or no financial resources in either assisted living or nursing care at the Brookridge and Western North Carolina communities and Taylor House.
Does the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina support Baptist Retirement Homes?
Baptist Retirement Homes has a historical relationship with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina but is a separate and distinctive corporate entity. Funds received from local churches via the North Carolina Offering for Older Adults and direct contributions from local Baptist churches are used to support older adults living in assisted living or nursing care who lack sufficient financial resources to pay for the care they need and deserve.
