About Us

At the heart of Bethany’s val­ues is our mot­to, Bet­ter Togeth­er. It’s the basis of every­thing we do and a notion that can be felt through­out our cam­pus through smil­ing faces, an unwa­ver­ing sense of com­mu­ni­ty, and a sup­port­ive, ded­i­cat­ed team. It strength­ens our faith, nur­tures friend­ships, and cre­ates a com­mu­ni­ty where every­one cher­ish­es one another.

A joy­ful space to age in place

Bethany is ded­i­cat­ed to pro­vid­ing qual­i­ty care for res­i­dents through all stages of the aging process. As a Mul­ti-Lev­el Retire­ment Com­mu­ni­ty, we offer a con­tin­u­um of care from inde­pen­dent liv­ing, all the way to skilled nurs­ing. With expe­ri­enced staff at every lev­el, we work with res­i­dents to devel­op a care plan allow­ing them to safe­ly age in place. Once you become a res­i­dent at Bethany, you receive top pri­or­i­ty of entrance at high­er lev­els of care when needed.

Our mis­sion

To hon­or and enrich the aging expe­ri­ence in a secure, vibrant Christ-cen­tered community”

The Mis­sion state­ment also defines our core val­ues:

  • Hon­or indi­vid­u­als with respect rec­og­niz­ing each as an image bear­er of God and an object of Christ’s love
  • Enrich indi­vid­u­als by ele­vat­ing their expe­ri­ences through Christ-like care and activities
  • Rec­og­nize the aging expe­ri­ence is dif­fer­ent for each per­son by offer­ing indi­vid­u­al­ized care by ded­i­cat­ed com­pas­sion­ate staff.
  • Respond to God’s call by pro­vid­ing each ser­vice in a spir­it of Chris­t­ian love while con­stant­ly seek­ing God’s guidance.
  • Wel­come and inspire indi­vid­u­als to live and act coop­er­a­tive­ly and respon­si­bly toward oth­ers, God and community.

Our vision

Serv­ing inter­ac­tive gen­er­a­tions by becom­ing a lead­ing resource on aging.”

Each word in this vision state­ment has a purpose:

  • Serv­ing—accept­ing God’s call to serve and care for each other
  • Inter­ac­tive—liv­ing and work­ing together
  • Gen­er­a­tions—res­i­dents & their fam­i­lies, staff, church­es, schools, com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions and gov­ern­ment agencies
  • Becom­ing—we have work to do! Some­thing to strive for!
  • Lead­ing—“the go-to” for aging assistance
  • Resource—make con­nec­tions – com­mu­ni­cate avail­able options
  • Aging—the jour­ney of life, which is dif­fer­ent for each person
