BHI Senior Living
The seed of BHI Senior Living was planted in 1904, when Edward and Sarah Crawford donated 185 acres of land in Boone County, Indiana, to the American Baptist churches. With additional funding from American Baptist churches, their gift became The Crawford Baptist Industrial School — a non-profit orphanage and industrial school that opened in 1905.
In 1952, a new era began for the organization with the opening of our first Life Plan Retirement Community, Hoosier Village in Indianapolis. With Hoosier Village, Indiana seniors were introduced to a new approach to retirement living — one that places the needs of residents as our highest priority.
Today, BHI Senior Living has seven Life Plan Communities and two Active Adult Communities in the Midwest. Hoosier Village, The Towne House, Prairie Landing, Four Seasons, Wesley Manor, Athens Crossing, and The Barrington of Carmel are located throughout Indiana, Clark Retirement in Michigan, and Maple Knoll Communities in Ohio. Each community provides high-quality, maintenance-free residences; a full continuum of healthcare services, including assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation services; and a fulfilling lifestyle for active seniors.
