Nestled along a fence line of timeless oak trees in beautiful Statesboro, Georgia, The Lodge at Bethany offers traditional and memory care living, as well as respite care, primarily to seniors. Constructed on the former 63 acre Neville family farm, the newly constructed 44,000 square-foot Assisted Living Community offers a range of services and amenities in a residential atmosphere, focusing on meeting our Residents’ needs and well-being.
With over 90 years of healthcare service to seniors, Bethany redefined senior living with the opening of The Lodge at Bethany in 2016. The Lodge is a not-for-profit, faith-based community owned and operated by the Primitive Baptist denomination. Regardless of denomination or affiliation, everyone is welcome to participate in our faithful and joyous community of care.
Having originally begun as a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), then adding a Personal Care Home (PCH) in 1999, the governing body of Bethany sought to provide the highest quality of healthcare available for seniors in Statesboro and the surrounding counties. With the newly created statutory distinction of Assisted Living Community (ALC) status, The Lodge at Bethany is the only licensed ALC in the area, and is focused on innovative, research-based programming that empowers Residents to live better, together. Families of Residents are invited to participate in educational opportunities to learn more about Memory Care, Alzheimer’s, and other forms of dementia and receive assistance, inspiration, and the comfort of knowing that their loved ones are engaged and enjoying the most meaningful and fulfilling life.
Through Resident assessment and programming, staff training and management, family member education and support, and quality monitoring and improvement, The Lodge at Bethany is a leader in senior healthcare in Georgia.
