Bethesda is proud to offer a wide variety of services to best fit every personal situation.
Adult Day Care
Adult Day Care helps mentally and physically impaired adults maintain or improve their level of independence while remaining a part of the community. Participants socialize and receive health/social services in a stimulating and supportive environment that promotes better physical and mental health. Adult Day Care provides a necessary respite for primary caregivers, which enables their primary caregiver(s) to work or pursue other daytime activities.
Our Alzheimer's Neighborhood is a self contained, 12 bed care facility staffed by specially trained staff to ensure a comfortable, safe, and natural resident setting. This neighborhood features cheerful, soothing colors and personal activity programs for residents. Activity planning is based on each resident's mental and emotional capacities. Because people in the middle stages of Alzheimer's tend to wander, the neighborhood is completely self-contained and secured, and includes a spacious outdoor courtyard.
Hospice Care is available through area agencies. Hospice staff work in concert with Bethesda staff to provide medical care to terminally ill residents and their families in order to meet the special needs arising out of the physical, emotional, spiritual, and social stresses experienced during the final stages of terminal illness and death.
