Help Support Calvary Homes
Since our founding, Calvary Homes has embraced the obligation to serve older adults, and particularly those having served the Lord through various mission, pastoral and vocational roles. Our ability to provide services to all residents regardless of their future inability to pay the full cost of their services is directly proportional to the tithes and gifts we receive. This benevolent care typically reaches beyond $520,000 annually!
Read further below to learn how you can partner with us to continue our faithful services to these servants of Christ.
Over the next two years, Calvary Homes will undergo a major renovation and expansion of our health care facilities. These improvements are intended to improve the privacy, dignity, and choice for residents while enhancing amenities for all residents and visitors. They will include:
- Expansion of nursing care into two separate and more residential neighborhoods, each with a country kitchen/dining area, living/activity room, secure porch with garden, and a whirlpool spa.
- We will change one private room and 22 semi-private rooms into 39 private rooms and 3 semi-private rooms. Each room will include an accessible full bath.
- Ten additional personal care rooms will be added and many will receive their own full bath.
A new addition to the Bausman Building will include:
- a community center with wood shop, library, craft room, conference room and game/recreation room
- a new welcome center entrance, conference room and centrally located office suites
- easy and direct access from the welcome center to each care neighborhood and the Community Core
- a new chapel and relocated gift shop, hair salon, and relocated and enlarged therapy suite
- an outdoor dining deck and garden for Grandview Café
- new entrance drive and parking for 65 additional cars
- Additional two bedroom and two bath apartments

Fitness for Life Campaign!
We are pleased to announce we have reached our first priority goal of $5,500 in gifts to purchase a Nu-Step recumbent exercise machine for our Exercise Room! We are equally pleased with the abundant words of appreciation and satisfaction received from many residents now using the Nu-Step on a regular basis. Your gifts have helped bring this important improvement for residents to maintain healthy lives and continued independence. Thank you very much!
Know, however, that the Fitness for Life Campaign does not stop here! We have plans for additional upgrades to our wellness facilities with additional equipment well-suited for the needs of older adults. Our next goal will be the purchase of a reconditioned Precor elliptical machine and an Octane recumbent stepping machine. Both pieces of equipment will enhance the workout possible for users of our Exercise Room and together will cost only $2,500! We encourage your gift today for the Fitness for Life Campaign to be applied for these improvements. You may download the Gift Form to print out a hard copy and mail with your cash or check to the address on the form.
To-date we have received $990.00.
Giving to benevolent care is an important way to broadly impact the lives of older adults. With increasing life spans, complex medical needs, and dementia care, an increasing number of seniors outlive their resources that once provided for their own care needs. Gifts for benevolent care provide resources enabling Calvary Homes to continue the same quality of care and daily assistance should a resident’s own resources become inadequate to cover the full cost of care.
