Our Beautiful Campus

It's not just the place, it's the people. Our residents are pleasantly surprised to discover just how quickly Bethea becomes home. 

People

Relationships Matter

Our community fosters an atmosphere of living, not retiring. An environment of continued service and purpose, not idle sitting. Many of our residents are drawn to our community because they have served as pastors, missionaries, or very active church members with a passion to continue in service. Our residents come together, pray together and serve together as God gives new vision and ways to minister throughout the retirement community and in the surrounding community at large.

I have peace of mind knowing that as my needs change, I'll be taken care of.

As a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), Bethea is equipped to support the changing needs of residents without requiring them to relocate.  Residents have security and peace of mind in knowing their future needs will be met.  Living options include independent and assisted living apartments, a cottage community, a rehab center, and an 88-bed skilled nursing facility.
