The term “sheltered care” is sometimes used interchangeably with “assisted living,” but actually operates under a different set of state regulations and licensing. If you are mostly self-sufficient, but could benefit from occasional help or supervision, sheltered care at Bethesda is for you.
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. At this level of care, our focus is less on the medical treatment, and more on your social and spiritual needs and assisting with activities of daily life (ADLs). Our sheltered care residents enjoy:
3 nutritious, home-cooked meals per day
Assistance with bathing
A full activities program
Lounge areas for visits
Caring, quality staff
Licensed social workers
Our goal at Bethesda is for our sheltered care residents to be as independent as possible with our support. Sheltered care residents live in spacious studio or one-bedroom suites, and are visited daily by our Medicare-certified staff. We offer two levels of service - basic and enhanced - to cater to your needs and abilities.
For more information about this unique service, or if you think sheltered care is for you, contact our Admissions Coordinator, Sharon Blazek, at (773) 836-3204.
