At Four Seasons, our mission is to enhance the quality of life for older adults within a secure environment which supports their needs, values, interests, and independence while encouraging personal and spiritual development.
Since opening our doors in 1967, our community has been known for providing exceptional quality and value to seniors in the Columbus area. Throughout the decades we’ve remained committed to offering the best service in senior living to those who live here, and always improving along the way.
With origins in the American Baptist community, our ethical principles and sense of integrity form the foundation of our organization. We exist to serve and welcome residents of all faiths, denominations, and backgrounds to our communities, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, or national origin.
Located in Zionsville, Indiana, BHI has deep roots in the Midwest. In addition to Hoosier Village, BHI operates leading communities in Fort Wayne, Columbus, and Frankfort. Since 1905 we have been committed to enhancing the quality of life for every person associated with us — from residents and their families to the loyal, dedicated staff members at each of our communities.
As a faith-based, non-profit organization, our first priority is to do what is best for the people we serve. We believe in responsible stewardship of resources, from making sure all of our communities are consistently maintained and updated, to employing the sound financial practices that have made BHI one of the most well-respected, financially stable senior living organizations in Indiana.
When you choose to make your home at a BHI community, you have the assurance of knowing that the same community and amenities you have chosen today will still be here for you tomorrow — and that you will be cared for by people who are committed to your well-being.
We’re proud to be nationally accredited
Dedicated to the fulfillment of our mission, we’ve earned national accreditation, assuring that Four Season is financially sound, offers a broad range of services including health care, and provides a superior quality of lifestyle for our residents. Most of our employees are long-term, and enjoy contributing to the positive atmosphere created here. They take pride in our mission and quality of care.
The Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC) was founded in 1985, and later merged with the commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Now known as CARF-CCAC, the accreditation commission is the only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities. In accordance with CARF-CCAC standards, Four Seasons conforms to proven business and financial practices, employee training, information management and continuous quality improvement planning.
The people we serve play an active and vital role in the CARF accreditation process, from helping to develop the international performance standards to giving input on the quality of services they receive. Through accreditation, our employees demonstrate their belief that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect, have access to needed services that achieve optimum outcomes, and are empowered to exercise informed choice. Four Seasons is pleased to join CARF in this mission.
CARF-CCAC accreditation not only provides assurance of quality and integrity, if offers the public a standard for comparison in evaluating retirement communities. By working to continuously improve our services, we can improve the quality of life for you and your loved ones. The focus of Four Seasons is set firmly on your safety and happiness and on meeting your needs and expectations.
About the Foundation
BHI Senior Living strives to ensure that every resident who lives at Four Seasons or one of our other Continuing Care Retirement Communities is empowered to live life to the fullest. It’s a lifestyle filled with opportunities to enhance wellness; enjoy exceptional services, amenities, and activities; and live in a community filled with good neighbors and caring staff. For more than 25 years, the BHI Foundation has been instrumental in helping us attain that goal.
BHI Foundation Inc. is a 509(a)(3) supporting organization. Listed below are ways you can help along with programs that may be beneficial to you or your family.
BHI Foundation Programs
Benevolent Care: The Good Neighbor Fund
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the strength of the BHI Foundation, we are proud to offer the security of lifelong care for BHI residents who deplete their financial resources through no fault of their own, and are no longer able to meet their monthly living expenses.
BHI residents who enter one of our CCRCs under a continuing care agreement are eligible to apply for benevolent care so that they may continue their residency in that community for as long as they choose. We are proud to say that no resident with a continuing care agreement has ever been asked to leave one of BHI’s senior living communities because of an inability to pay, when their financial resources have been exhausted through no fault of their own.
Employee Scholarship Program
The BHI Foundation sponsors a scholarship program for the employees of BHI’s retirement communities. This tuition reimbursement program is designed to encourage employees to enhance their personal and professional growth through higher education. Retirement community employees can choose from two career development tracks: college credit/vocational courses or professional nursing licensure (RN and LPN).
With the aid of your generosity, the BHI Foundation provides 50% of the funding for the Wellness Budget in each community. This support allows us to offer fitness programs, staffing, equipment, and more so our residents receive the benefit of comprehensive body/mind/spirit care.
Special Gifts and Projects
The generosity of our donors allows the BHI Foundation to contribute to community projects both within our CCRC’s and throughout their respective cities. These projects improve and enhance our residents’ quality of life, as well as make us good neighbors in our communities. Some of the projects we’ve helped support include:
• Christian Service Award Grant given to retired pastors or those in other Christian ministries to offset entrance fees
• Resident Veterans Garden
• Community Dog Parks
• Resident prepared soldier care packages
• Community woodshop and greenhouse
• Community aviaries
• Library improvements
• Resident prepared school backpack donations
• Indy Honor Flight Guardian sponsorship
• Support for resident mentoring, tutoring, and teacher partnership with local school
