Serving & Celebrating Seniors Since 1896

A community unlike any other

We lead from the heart, not the bottom line…

Our residences, programs and care are exceptional, award-winning and progressive. Our staff has a genuine and natural “heart to serve” and provides residents a safe, stimulating and soul-nurturing community as they age. Independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and short-term rehabilitation and a Memory Care Center that offers three distinct tiers of memory support are all on the same campus, uniquely under one roof.

Unlike senior residences with sky-high buy-in fees, Central Baptist Village is a rental community.

Caring for Seniors Since 1896

Our history

A founder and spiritual leader of German Baptist churches in the Chicago and the Midwest, Reverend Jacob Meier was determined to create “a home for the aged and helpless.” His dream was realized in May of 1896 when its first residents, three elderly men and one woman, moved into a remodeled private home at 1851 N. Spaulding Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.
