Living the Dream

No images were found.

Living the Dream was created to support Bethany residents in living life’s moments despite their being in a nursing home or assisted living setting.  At Bethany, we strive to create these moments for our residents to help them to achieve their greatest quality of life while in our care.  The Bethany Foundation provides the financial support needed to help make our resident's dreams come true.  Examples of past Living the Dream activities have included: Hosting a 70th Anniversary Celebration for a couple who lived at BHSF.  The celebration included a catered candlelight dinner for the couple and an Anniversary Dance after the meal with all their friends and family in attendance.  The evening topped off with champagne toasts and the couple cutting an anniversary cake made to look like their wedding cake.  Other dreams have been to recreate a resident’s living room filled at Bethany so a resident and his family could watch Husker’s football while also sipping a beer and enjoying a smorgasbord of snacks. Many residents have enjoyed a special night out with loved ones for dinner and a concert with limo transportation.  Some residents prefer to go out of town for a day trip for a family reunion or to their home town for a treat at the local drive-in.  These are only a few of the many events made possible by the Bethany Living the Dream program… if our residents can dream it; we will make it happen!
