    Soil Retention Walls


    Before the really big digging starts the soil retention walls must be set and that’s what was going on today on the front lawn of Bethany. It was fascinating to watch the big machinery do this heavy lifting and hard work.

    The front yard now has some “above ground” work done! Basement walls were finished, insulated and capped later in the week. The work on the back of the existing building has been going well, with the foundation for the walking corridor being poured and more work done with sewer and electrical lines being moved. Step by step, we’re getting there!!

    Main Street

    The connector is finished and is called “Main Street.” This corridor connects the entire campus together. You can pass by Main Street on your way to either restaurant or you can stay for a visit and play board games, pool or ping pong in the game room. Lounges and extra seating are available now. Library, bar and ice cream parlor coming soon! You can now easily get from The Springs Wellness Center, to The Pines Assisted Living, to the Bleu Barn restaurant, then cross through Main Street to the Fireside Grill. From the Fireside Grill you can go to the Chapel, any future CBRF rooms, then to Spruce Ridge Skilled Nursing and Hickory Height Rehabilitation.

  • April 2018

    CBRF Dementia Area Opens

    The Pines, CBRF dementia unit opens up. This addition added 37 rooms for assisted living, but lowered the skilled nursing census from 104 to 98. Studies have shown that many people in nursing homes need care but not skilled nursing care. Adding an additional level of assisted living costs families and the state less money but provides residents with the care they need.


  • July 2018

    Addional Housing Added

    With the waiting list for Shadow Woods Independent Living so long; Bethany purchased a home on Shadow Lake Drive available for rent. This house is a part of the Shadow Woods community.

    The building project keeps going up, up, UP! Check out the latest photos here!
