Mission Statement

At Bethany Home we truly believe in "Loving Care With a Spiritual Touch". It is our mission to provide holistic care, with a special focus directed toward the well being of each resident's mind, body, and spirit.


Bethany Home is a not-for-profit organization affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. 

About Bethany Home

Bethany Home is committed to providing the very best care to the senior citizens of Minden and surrounding communities. Since starting in 1920 many things have changed throughout the years, however, two things have always stayed the same; 1) Bethany Home operates as a nonprofit just as we did in the beginning 2) "Loving Care with a Spiritual Touch" is integrated in the philosophy of Bethany Home today as it was first pursued in the beginning years. 

Our Residential Setting Provides:

  • A Sense of "Home" - Your comfort and happiness are among our top priorities!

  • Privacy - When you want it.

  • A Sense of Dignity and Self-respect - Retained and oftentimes improved.

Eden Alternative Process

We are firm believers in the Eden Alternative process, the purpose of which is to eliminate loneliness, boredom, and helplessness from each resident's life. At Bethany Home we enhance life's quality by providing a caring community for the residents, their families, our employees, and our volunteers.
