Bethany Place: Congregate care and assisted living for seniors in Fremont, Ohio
Bethany Place is a market-rate senior apartment community that provides individuals, age 55 years or older, with an inviting place to call home. Located on the west side of Fremont, next door to the Sandusky County YMCA and near the county fairgrounds, this vibrant community is also conveniently close to shopping, entertainment venues, and medical care facilities.
Congregate care affords residents the ability to live as independently as possible, while also sharing meals with other residents and enjoying numerous other services, amenities, and opportunities to engage in social activities. Bethany Place also offers assisted living for residents who are no longer able to live independently, but who do not require constant care. Assisted living residents may take advantage of all the services and amenities available to independent seniors, thus empowering all residents to embrace life to its fullest.
Like many Genacross Lutheran Services housing sites, Bethany Place has a spiritual foundation and seniors of all faiths are welcome.

Bethany Place offers assisted living for residents who are no longer able to live independently, but who do not require constant care. Assisted living expands the continuum of care by offering access to around-the-clock nursing care and help with activities of daily living such as:
- Laundry and housekeeping
- Medication management
In many cases, assisted living bridges the gap between independent living and nursing care, and it is an appropriate level of care for older adults who wish to remain as active and independent as possible. Residents receive the support of a professional, caring staff and services tailored to their interests and abilities.
Assisted living services
Assisted living residents receive all the services and amenities available to independent living residents as well as these additional services:
- 24-hour nursing care, seven days a week
- Daily monitoring
- Weekly housekeeping and laundry (includes changing bed linens)
- Personal care assistance*
- Medication management*
- Therapy services*
*Additional fees may apply.
Individual plan of care
When a resident is admitted to Bethany Place assisted living, our staff works to develop a plan of care in cooperation with the resident and his or her family members. Resident needs are evaluated in two areas: nursing care services and personal care services. The results of these evaluations determine the level of assistance each resident may require. The care plan is updated regularly to ensure that it keeps pace as a resident’s needs change.
Rent is paid on a month-to-month basis, with no endowment or long-term lease required. Rent varies depending on the layout of the apartment and the level of care required, but rent for all apartments includes three meals daily, housekeeping, laundry services, utilities (except telephone), and interior and exterior maintenance. Service charges for assisted living are also billed monthly.
