A Plan for the Future
When you make the move to a Bethesda independent senior living community, you are creating a life plan for both now and the future. That’s because Bethesda also offers an array of living options to accommodate those whose health is starting to decline, including assisted living, memory support, and 24-hour skilled nursing care. We also offer a program called Senior Support Solutions that can provide you with some assistance yet let you remain in your apartment.
Staying. Safer. Together.
Our Independent Senior Living residents were among the first in the St. Louis area to receive their COVID-19 vaccines. Bethesda partnered with CVS Health and made them available for every resident and employee. We are so happy that we are helping keep our community healthy and safe!
We invite those interested in senior living to learn more about our communities, get the vaccine, and live the life you deserve.
