Where Everything is Just Right

From the moment you—or your loved one — walks into Bethesda Hawthorne Place, you’ll know you’re someplace special. This is assisted living and memory support that truly understands you and, perhaps most importantly, anticipates your needs.

From design features created to aid individuals with memory challenges to bright and roomy apartments designed so you can make yours feel like home, Bethesda Hawthorne Place is the ideal combination of healthy support and independence.

Centrally located near Kirkwood and Webster Groves, Bethesda Hawthorne Place features 38 one- and two-bedroom apartments spread out over two neighborhoods. The memory support floor has 20 private studio and one-bedroom apartments, plus abundant common areas and touches (like color-coded doors for way-finding) to make it easier to move around with confidence.

If you’re starting to envision yourself — or your loved one — at Bethesda Hawthorne Place, this video will make it even easier.

Judy M from Hawthorne Place
I have more happiness here than I would anywhere else. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked through the door. It’s not too crowded. There are people to take care of you day and night. The group managing the community is very good. The nursing staff is very good. And I feel safe here.

Julie A from Hawthorne Place
I feel very much at home here, and am convinced I made the right decision by moving to Hawthorne Place. The care is excellent, but it’s not intrusive. The staff is somehow able to tell when you are having a bad day, and maybe needing a little more attention. I don’t know how they do it, but I sure appreciate it.

Nancy R and John F from Hawthorne Place
We knew that Dad was needing assisted living help, and we looked at quite a few options. When we visited Hawthorne Place, we loved it. We brought Dad to see it, and he said he felt very comfortable, which he did not say about the others. No more than a week after our first visit, with Lisa and Lea Ann’s help, we were here!

Staying. Safer. Together.

At Bethesda Hawthorne Place — like every Bethesda community — our highest priority is your health and safety. That’s why we were monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak months before others, and were among the first to provide vaccines for our residents and staff. After more than 130 years, we’ve learned that being proactive is a healthier choice than being reactive.

And because we focus so intently on your health, safety and well-being, you can focus on the things that bring you joy and meaning.
