Alzheimer's & Memory Care
Our state-of-the-art Alzheimer's and Memory Care community offers several deluxe suites as well as award-winning care for those suffering from memory and cognitive issues.
We are not an institution, we are an award-winning senior living community but most of all we are a family. We embrace the aging process and believe in an energetic and vibrant care community, where our residents have choices, where they feel affirmed, and where they are purposefully engaged in a meaningful life. Welcome!
The adult day program at Bethesda Rehab & Senior Care was created in response to a need in our community.

Our goal at Bethesda is for our sheltered care residents to be as independent as possible with our support.
Sheltered Care at Bethesda is ideal for someone who wants to live in a supportive senior community but does not need extensive medical help. Our sheltered care residents maintain their independence while benefiting from additional nursing care as needed.
We offer two levels of service, basic and enhanced, to cater to you or your loved one's needs and abilities. At this level of care, our focus is less on the medical treatment, and more on social and spiritual needs and assisting with activities of daily living (ADLs*).
Many of the residents at Bethesda Rehab & Senior Care do not require the extent of care that our Skilled Nursing Program provides. Our Intermediate Care level is ideal for residents who require moderate to extensive assistance with activities of daily living, or ADLs*. These activities may include bathing, eating dressing, and toileting. All care is provided under the supervision of licensed nursing personnel.
Bethesda Rehab & Senior Care is a Medicare-certified skilled nursing facility (SNF). If you or your loved one requires round-the-clock skilled nursing care, we will work with your physicians to meet your needs. Our team of licensed medical professionals includes Registered Nurses (RN), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and Certified Nurse Assistants (CNA) who provide full-time care to our skilled nursing residents. Skilled nursing care is available for residents who require extensive assistance with ADLs*
