Assisted Living

In 1997, Bethel Suites was added to the continuum of services provided by Bethel Lutheran Home, Inc.  The goal of this assisted living option is to provide care while encouraging independence in the residents who live there.  Residents must be independent or require minimal assistance with daily tasks.  


Each assisted living suite is 420 square feet and includes a kitchenette, living area, bedroom, and private bathroom.  Residents furnish their own suite to make it feel like home.  

Common Areas

The facility has common areas which include a day room equipped with TV, DVD player, and billiard table.  There are also visiting areas and a dinning room in which meals are served prepared by the Bethel Home kitchen staff.


The overall management of the assisted living center lies with the Administrator and the Director of Community Services.  The Director of Community Services is a nurse, who provides weekly nursing services to each of the assisted living residents,and also oversees and directs the assisted living staff who also provide resident care.  If needed, on a limited basis, there are also professional nursing staff who can provide additional support if and when needed.
