Choosing the Right Care
Choosing the appropriate retirement community can be an exciting experience and transition in your life. The options available to seniors have grown apace with their demands, and while this is great news for seniors and their families, it can be overwhelming trying to sort through them all.
Bethesda Senior Living Communities has been serving seniors and their families for over 50 years, so we understand the important decisions that families encounter while transitioning into retirement living. Choosing the appropriate residence can make all the difference in the individual’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. Whether you need care for a loved one or for yourself, we hope to provide some clear delineation between the main choices that are available.

They are a perfect option for caregivers that need go away on a business trip or vacation, but want to provide their loved ones with a safe environment while they are away. Short Term Stays are a great alternative to skilled nursing by providing additional needed assistance for seniors recuperating from a recent hospital stay or illness.
