Bethel Place is pleased to be able to continue to provide this vital service to the residents. A weekly menu is available here.
Practical Help to Residents
To help resident navigate these changing times the BP office is sending residents’ weekly correspondence. These bulletins inform residents on a variety of health reminders, provincial updates, Bethel Place news, and encouragement. Staff is also reaching out to all residents by phone to check in and assist with needs. Residents requiring assistance are encouraged to phone the front desk and a staff will return their call.
