Over the past fifty years, we have developed strategic plans embracing bigger is better. Along the way, we learned bigger is not better.
Better is better.
We are done with big expansion plans and now focused on creating extraordinary experiences for our residents, peace of mind for their loved ones, and meaningful work for our team.
This monumental shift was shaped by our board of directors and leaders. It is guided by the preferences and opinions of those we serve and their loved ones.
Today, we are about the important work of creating moments of connection, joy, and delight. This shift is reflected in the emphasis and direction of our work. It is supported by implementing innovative programs and services throughout our campus.
Early in 2014, we were the first organization in Wisconsin to offer Namaste Care. We implemented the program for all of Bethel Home and ala carte services at Elijah’s Place. Namaste Care is designed to improve the quality of life for people living with advanced dementia.
Namaste Care at Bethel Home takes place in a warm, inviting room. A wide range of meaningful activities are offered, including hand and foot massages and personal grooming with familiar products. Scents of the season, inviting nature videos, and soothing music provide a calming experience for our elders. Namaste Care ala carte offers the same types of experiences personalized for individuals not up to leaving their room.
