The public is invited to tour the Bethel Oaks Memory Care Home in Viroqua following the dedication service July 12, at 1:30 p.m.

There will also be an open house and ribbon cutting July 15 from 4-5:30 p.m.

The home will begin taking admissions to the home in mid-July.

It is specifically designed to care for up to 14 residents with Alzheimer’s or other dementia.   Each resident will have a private room with access to common living and dining space.

Once residents are living at Bethel Oaks, public tours will be limited.

The purpose of the Memory Care Home is to provide a safe homelike setting for people unable to remain safely in their own homes due to Alzheimer’s or other dementia.  The home is located at the west side of Maplewood Terrace at 620 Garfield Ave. and will serve individuals from Vernon County and surrounding areas.

Staff members will supervise personalized activities, meals, cleaning, laundry and assistance with personal cares.

Specialized memory care in Eldergarden at Bethel Home will continue to serve those who need 24 hour nursing home level of care.

The public is invited to the Sunday dedication service which will be followed by the Bethel Auxiliary Pie and Ice Cream Social at 2 p.m. in the East Dining Room at Maplewood Terrace.  The free-will offering for the pie and ice cream will go to purchase courtyard furnishings for Bethel Oaks.
