The Household Model
At Bethany Life, we recognize that older adults thrive in an environment that recognizes and appreciates individual differences. Rather than expecting our residents to change and fit into an institution, we celebrate what makes each person unique and incorporate that into their new home.
Our newly renovated facilities promote a home-like atmosphere – a space that offers warmth and comfort. Just as important, our culture promotes the feeling of home. On any given day, the residents on their household could be found baking chocolate chip cookies, having a pizza and movie night, or playing with the grandkids.
The Household Coordinator
Meet Laura Severson, Household Coordinator for Walker Place. Her role (and household coordinators building wide) is to ensure that each house feels like home and each resident has his or her individual needs met.
