free will baptist ministries assisted living

The Laurels and Governor’s Bend are assisted living communities owned and operated by Free Will Baptist Family Ministries. We realize the need for seniors to experience independent living and quality of life services in a comfortable environment. That is why we offer full service, independent senior living where residents can experience living in their own suites with the freedom to do exactly as they like, while enjoying the safety and services provided by an attentive 24-hour staff. Help is always available for assistance with daily living needs, overseeing medications and local transportation to doctor visits.

retirement and assisted living

Our beautiful, welcoming retirement and assisted living facilities allow residents to build friendships, find peace of mind and access any needed assistance with daily activities. They can enjoy a never-ending variety of activities, Sunday morning and evening services, Wednesday night Bible study, fine dining, on-site hair salon, as well as many other amenities with no add-on fees.
