Bethany Home staff are actively providing the care, services, and flexibility my 98-year-old mother needs to continue living independently at Bethany. She transferred from another independent living facility whose staff made it difficult to get extra assistance for the short or long term.

The ability to choose and self-serve a portion of all three meals at Bethany enhances the well-prepared food. Bethany staff (most of whom have worked at Bethany for many years) enjoy their work and clearly want to support residents in being as comfortable, independent, and well-supported as they want to be.
