I find the staff here at Bethesda wonderful. They are very caring and respectful. They help me with the things I need help with and always answer any questions I have. The food is good here and there is always a choice. I have friends here in other residents and staff alike.
I have not been here in Bethesda for too long, but I feel very blessed to be here. I had no sooner applied when a vacancy was opened, and I was accepted as a resident. I am still amazed at how quickly and smoothly everything happened. Staff are very friendly, and it is easy for my family and friends to visit me here.
Here at Bethesda, I find there is always someone to talk to. The staff are all friendly and meet my needs. I love the ice cream days and like the Chaplain’s chats – they help us build friendships with other residents.
