About Samaritan Bethany:

It's more than a place to stay - It is home!  This defines Samaritan Bethany senior care facilities. For over 90 years, Samaritan Bethany, Inc. has cared for thousands of elderly in its skilled care homes, congregate independent living area and assisted living units. Your donation will help support the care services and programs of Samaritan Bethany, Inc. Our mission: "Committed to compassionate care and enhancing the quality of life of those we serve" conveys the philosophy that "Residents don't live in our facility; we work in their home!"  

Through generous donors like you the Foundation has been able to enhance the lives of our residents through the purchase of health care equipment, vehicles for transportation, campus building improvements and renovations, spiritual pastoral support, and staff career development. These are the extras that are crucial to the comfort and compassionate care that our seniors deserve, but Insurance and Federal aid many times won’t provide.

Your financial support is a gift that will provide those extras to the care of our resident's in an environment which promotes safety and a sense of purpose and belonging to our aging populations. We would appreciate your thoughtful consideration to support the residents of Samaritan Bethany through a financial gift and/or planned giving gifts such as a bequest in wills, charitable trusts, paid life insurance policies, and retirement plan assets.

Samaritan Bethany is a national leader in the Household Model of living for all of our living options that provide assistance with activities of daily living or greater levels of skilled care. The Household Model features private rooms grouped around shared family-style kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms that are similar to those found in a private home and allow residents a high degree of flexibility in how they choose to live their life.

Each household also has decision-making autonomy and is consistently staffed. Residents get up when they want, bathe how and when they want, go to bed when they want, eat when and what they want and decide how they will spend their day. Household life is “normal,” spontaneous and full of new experiences.

Samaritan Bethany was founded in 1922 by Peace United Church of Christ in Rochester, and today has 7 sponsoring churches: Bethel Lutheran, Christ Lutheran of Byron, Gloria Dei Lutheran, Hosanna Lutheran, Our Savior's Lutheran, Peace United Church of Christ, and Zumbro Lutheran. We are blessed to have their volunteer and spiritual support.
