Supportive Living at Beth-Anne Place

Overview

Beth-Anne Place is an affordable and supportive living community that provides a variety of specialized services assisting residents to be as independent as they can be for as long as they can be. Bethel opened the 85-unit apartment building in January 2003 for seniors who can no longer safely maintain themselves in their own home but do not require the level of services found in a nursing home.

Beth-Anne Place provides comfortable 1-bedroom and studio apartments, three meals daily in a spacious dining room, weekly housekeeping and laundry services, 24-hour certified nursing assistance, and a full activity program orchestrated by our full time activity director. Beth-Anne Place has nurses on staff and a dietary manager to ensure a holistic level of care for senior residents. All of our services are included in the monthly fee — there is never any added charge for additional care.

Our goal is to promote the dignity and well-being of the residents we serve. Welcome to Beth-Anne Place and welcome home. Download Supportive Living flyer.

Nursing Services

 

Our certified and professionally trained staff is present in the building 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your safety and well-being. Our nursing staff consists of a registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, and certified nursing assistants. Our Nursing Supervisor works with residents individually to create a customized care plan, which is followed by all staff. Our staff will be happy to assist with medications. We also assist with all activities of daily living that are needed, including showering, dressing, ambulating and incontinence care, all at no extra cost. Residents receive an assessment upon admission into Beth-Anne Place and again annually. We provide daily wellness checks and extra services in times of need.

Dining Services

Our residents enjoy three daily meals prepared in our kitchen. Each day our residents have choices of entrées, side dishes, and desserts that allow them to make choices recommended by their physician or personal taste. A dietician makes timely visits and is available for consultation. Under the weather? We will bring your meals to you in times of illness. Residents also have fully appointed kitchens in their apartments.

Activities & Recreation

Our activities and recreation program seeks to meet the multidimensional needs of our seniors. Our community has on-site activities as well as routine outings for our residents. Each resident has the opportunity to participate in the scheduling of events and ideas and lead them if they desire. We offer a varied selection of recreational activities including exercise, trips, group events, and crafts. Join us for a game of pool or cards. Our recreational activities are supplemented by Educational programs covering senior issues and wellness.

Housekeeping

Our housekeeping staff clean residential units and provide laundry service weekly, or more often as needed – and both services are included in the rent. Residents have the option of maintaining their own unit and doing their own laundry if they choose.

Finances

Our rent is affordable, determined by a sliding scale based on income. Residents have control of their finances. Each month residents receive a billing statement that gives them the ability to maintain their independence through their own money management. Residents on a fixed income always keep a monthly personal allowance to provide for personal expenses.

Safety

Our dedicated staff is supplemented by the addition of onsite security staff in the evening hours providing 24-hour peace of mind. All staff members go through rigorous training and background checks before being trusted with the care of our residents. All visitors to our building are checked in at our reception area. Our hallways are monitored by camera for the safety of our residents. Every apartment features an emergency call system that is monitored 24 hours a day and provides peace of mind for each resident’s well being.
