Member Spotlight- Bethany Home
Any seniors interested in a cruise, a land cruise that is, with all the amenities. That is what Jennifer Cantrell likened the long-term healthcare and skilled nursing services at Bethany Home too. It’s the all-inclusive treatment that includes “three daily meals, snacks and coffee; 24-hour nursing care and housekeeping; weekly laundry; daily activities and cultural events; physical therapy and restorative services; medication management; worship programs and complimentary transportation.” Individualized care plans assure that each resident has what they need, plus what they prefer, all in a caring community.
Bethany Home HR Director Andrea Johnson and Marketing Director Jennifer Cantrell shared information regarding the independent living, assisted living, long term healthcare, skilled nursing and rehab services offered by Bethany Home. For those that are still on-the-go but are too busy enjoying life to worry about home and yard maintenance, the independent option at Bethany Home is for you. Andrea said the independent living theory was a rather new idea in 1976 and now they have a waiting list. The 20 unit (30-person capacity) assisted living home is for individuals who are still enjoying many aspects of an independent lifestyle but may need help with some of their daily living needs. The Bethany Home Assisted Living campus at 821 E. Swensson was completed in 2014. Future growth includes an expansion to the North in early 2020, with 4 more 2-bedroom apartments and 18 one-bedroom assisted living apartments. Long range development plans on the 60 developable acres also include options for more independent living homes. Contact Bethany Home at 785-227-2334 to schedule a visit and see for yourself the quality amenities and loving care offered to residents.
