Our tag line “Nobody takes care of you like your own” is near and dear to our employees’ hearts as they plan every detail for the residents at the Bethel Home.The Dining Staff have recently taken steps to ensure more quality food and choices for the residents. They can now pick from a menu that consists of two entrees, two vegetables, a potato, bread and dessert.The bread is being made fresh one day a week with hopes this can become more frequent.And soon the kitchen will be starting to offer a homemade soup of the day.The Mountrail County Health Foundation has been able to use the money raised from the annual golf scrambles to upgrade equipment in the kitchen including a new fridge, food warmer and a meat slicer.The meat slicer allows the kitchen to provide freshly cut meat, sliced to the desired thickness they need.And like everything else in the Bethel Home, the Dietary manager uses Sure Quest’s OnDemand to track every residents’ dislikes and likes.This allows the kitchen to tailor personal menus for every resident from the history that is captured.
The Bethel Home also offers one of the largest comprehensive activity programs in the statefocusing on person-centered activities designed to meet the needs of each individual.Our activity director strives to make it a fun environment for our residents and adds little special events such as a 4th of July BBQ in the courtyard to making peanut butter and banana sandwiches in honor of Elvis last week.Another feature we offer is our on-site hair salon and licensed hair care professionals, who come weekly to take care of all your loved ones hair care needs.This might seem minor, but it lets our residents feel like they used to when visiting the salon. We also have volunteers who come in each Friday to roll and style the residents’ hair.
We very pleased to say that we currently are using 95 percent of our own CNAs on the floor.This means more local residents are employed by the Bethel Home, enforcing the tag line…..NOBODY TAKES CARE OF YOU LIKE YOUR OWN! The facility is offering a CNA class starting on August 29th and again in October if you think this is something for you or know someone who might be interested.
You can find this “Did You Know” and all past ones on our website at www.stanleyhealth.org. We thank you for your continued support. We are always striving to do better.
Nobody takes care of you like your own.
