Winner: Bethany Retirement Living
Location: 2 Fargo locations
For the ninth consecutive year, Bethany Retirement Living was named the Red River Valley's Best Retirement Community.
"We don't do what we do to win awards — thought it does feel great," said Grant Richardson, senior executive — development and community relations. "We continually strive to provide the best possible care for those who call Bethany 'home' and by doing that well, others take notice and reward our employees with this wonderful recognition."
Bethany offers services such as basic care, independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care and more.
"We receive comments all the time from residents and their families about the quality of our employees," Richardson said. "They remark on the employees' attentiveness, kindness and pleasant personalities. Beautiful buildings and things to do are important but what really matters is who is taking care of you."
