Long-Term Care

Long-Term Care

Residents of Bethesda's Long-Term Care program maintain their independence while benefiting from high quality nursing care that is available when needed. These long-term care options offer the required assistance and supervision required for all activities of daily living.

Long-term care at Bethesda provides an energetic and vibrant community where residents have choices, feel affirmed, and are purposefully engaged in a meaningful life.

Care Options

Sheltered Care
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*).

Intermediate Care
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.

Skilled Nursing 
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*



*ADLs or activities of daily life are basic self-care tasks such as bathing, dressing, feeding, transferring from bed to wheelchair or wheelchair to bed, and moving around.
