March 26, 2020 COVID-19 Update
The safety of your loved ones is Baptist Homes Society’s primary concern. As of this update, we have no diagnosed cases of the Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) at either of our communities. We will remain vigilant in our efforts to protect our residents and team members. To that end, Baptist Homes and Providence Point are closed to visitors with limited exceptions.We continue to implement procedures in accordance with guidance received from the Centers for Medicare Services (CMS), Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. We are asking all residents of our independent living residences to follow Governor Wolf’s stay-at-home order. Independent living residents are strongly encouraged to only leave the community for essential needs like medication, critical medical appointments and groceries. We are providing recommended screenings for staff, residents and visitors at entrances to our communities. Residents are being asked not to gather in communal areas or residences, and all private and public gatherings, regardless of the size, are suspended. All residents and staff are reminded to practice social distancing in their daily interactions with each other. We encourage you to stay in touch with your family members via phone, text and appropriate social media. We thank you for your patience and support during this emergency.
“My personal objective, as we continue to provide services and expand our capabilities as a nonprofit senior living and care provider, is to assure fulfillment of our mission, vision and values, and continue to enrich the lives of the individuals who have been entrusted to us.”

Sharing the Blessing
Since 1910, Baptist Homes Society has been dedicated to providing for individuals who have depleted their financial resources or have insufficient funds to cover the full costs of their care. Contributions to our Samaritan Fund for Resident Assistance from individuals, churches, and special events, combined with investment earnings from our endowment, support the benevolence we are able to provide.
