The Community Response Fund of Cass and Clay Counties, administered by the Fargo Moorhead Area Foundation, has awarded Bethany Retirement Living a grant of $3,000 to provide communication and entertainment opportunities for lower-income residents.
The grant provides funding to purchase televisions to be installed in the rooms of skilled nursing resident who aren’t able to fund the purchase on their own. Especially during the restrictions necessary due to the Covid-19 pandemic, some residents are isolated in their rooms without the ability to watch a movie, to participate in worship or exercise sessions broadcast on Bethany’s internal television network, or to follow the news. By installing approximately a dozen televisions funded through this grant award, several residents will have their lives become more interesting and rewarding.
Bethany Retirement Living was founded in Fargo in 1939 and is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Bethany provides high-quality care to the elderly in skilled nursing, memory care, transitional care, rehabilitation, basic care, assisted living, senior apartments, and personal care programs.
