The Baptist Home Receives a 5 Star Rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have awarded a Five Star Quality Rating to The Baptist Home, a Long Term Care Facility, located in Rhinebeck, NY. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services contracts with the NY State Dept. of Health and Human Services to conduct onsite inspections of nursing homes to assess quality and performance standards. Examples of these standards include proper care of residents, the processes used to provide that care, staff and resident ratios and interactions, proper management of medications, protection of residents from physical and mental abuse, the quality of the nursing home environment, and other factors that impact residents’ quality of life. Visit for more information.

The State Inspectors were particularly supportive of The Baptist Home’s innovative and award winning NEW DAY program (Nurturing Everyone With Diverse Activities Year-round). This is an Activities Program which provides meaningful, interactive, and diverse activities for residents to promote their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. The Baptist Home will be launching a Capitol Campaign in the coming months to make NEW DAY available to benefit individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, who are living at home, and to provide respite for their caregivers.

The Community at Brookmeade (, located on 75 country acres just outside the Village of Rhinebeck, is a senior living retirement community serving the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas. The Community is comprised of three entities: Arbor Ridge, offering independent living, The Terraces, offering assisted living, and The Baptist Home which provides long term care, sub-acute rehabilitation, palliative care and Out-Patient Rehabilitation Services.
