Beautiful Modern Living Spaces
From cottages and villas to apartments and memory support studios, our wonderful living spaces are sure to help you relax and enjoy life your way.
After having lived in our previous home and raising our family for 50 years, we just became residents at Bethany a few months ago. From the very beginning of our search to downsize, and for so many positive reasons, we chose to move to Bethany. In addition, even during the year of COVID when things were not normal, everyone with whom we came in contact, could not have been more kind or more helpful. We have been welcomed and made new friends from day one. Now things are beginning to open back up, and we are excited to participate in the many activities available to us here.
Gary and Sondra
I cannot imagine a place that is superior in providing the care our Mom is receiving. Our concerns are listened to and addressed. The communication with our family is stellar, the staff is compassionate and welcoming. There are activities which address her spiritual being along with her social/emotional and memory needs.
We are so blessed to have our mom at Bethany Village. She loves the staff, the food, and activities; couldn’t ask for a better place for her to live. Thank you Bethany Village staff and the entire team.
