Bethesda’s mission is to be the premier provider of senior services in the St. Louis area. To accomplish this mission, Bethesda provides a complete continuum of care to residents.

For Bethesda’s Independent Living residents, this includes access to a full range of in-home services—Care Management, Home Health and Senior Support Solutions (private duty)—that will be provided to them in their own apartments.

“Even our most vibrant residents may need a little help now and then, and it is important to us that we support their needs however we can,” says Michelle Glass, Senior Vice President of Senior Living and In-Home Care. “If they have an accident or injury, or if their overall health declines, our in-home services team is ready to help. I would estimate that 75% of our residents have used at least one of these services.”

The ultimate goal is to keep people living healthy and well in the space they are the most safe and comfortable for as long as possible. This continuum of care promotes aging in place, which has been proven to increase happiness and quality of life.

“We’re able to meet all of a resident’s needs within the walls of their apartment from the day they move in until the end of life,” says Missy McAuley, Director of St. Andrews & Bethesda Home Health and Bethesda Hospice Care. “I don’t believe other organizations offer the depth and breadth of services and communication between providers quite like we do.”
