Bethany Nursing Home of Camrose (operating as The Bethany Group) is a public, not-for-profit, organization providing health care and housing services to over 2,600 households in 30 communities throughout Central Alberta.
Originally established in 1922 by the Lutheran Church to operate a home for the aged in Bawlf, Alberta, the organization today operates pursuant to the Bethany Nursing Home and Auxiliary Hospitals Act, as well as a Public Housing Management Body pursuant to the Alberta Housing Act. The Bethany Group is driven by the people who work and volunteer for the organization to make the lives of the people they serve better. It also continues to honour its faith-based roots and provide a wholistic approach to caring for its clients.
As a non-profit, all funding and monies are put towards the services and programs it operates. The Bethany Group invests its resources to improve the lives of its clients. As well, it places importance on building relationships, not just with its clients but with similar organizations. Working with its partners allows all organizations to pool resources and better respond to changing directions of government and community needs.
Our mission is providing person-centered service that builds a caring community, connects people and makes a positive difference in each person's life through the provision of Health, Housing and Supportive Living services.
As a faith-based organization growing from the foundation of our 100-year history of sharing God's love, we seek to live the following values:
- keeping people at the centre of our thinking;
- fostering safe and welcoming communities; and
- a sustainable approach to providing service.
