A Tradition of Caring Since 1914

It all started with the unique vision of young Pastor, Rev. J.A. Quello. Reverend Quello teamed with the Norwegian Lutheran Church to create the first nursing care facility in South Dakota. The original facility has been replaced, but the focus on personal relationships, uplifting surroundings and Christian fellowship is still the foundation for our campus.

We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support as we navigate this difficult time.

At this time, no access to the facility will be permitted, other than staff and essential non-staff for food and supply deliveries.  As of today, hospice staff will be allowed to care for those receiving their services. We are allowing booth visits through our activity patio entrance. To schedule a visit, please contact activities at 605-763-4659.

We ask that no one come to the facility unless we reach out to you, as we are not permitting access until further notice.

Should you need to bring anything to your loved one, please call and let us know you are coming and place the items in the labeled drop box outside. When you arrive, please, do not enter the facility, even the entry way.

Still, as of today, no residents or staff are sick, or showing signs of illness, and we’re simply trying to keep it that way.

A number of one-on-one activities, including devotions are occurring daily, as residents are encouraged to stay in their rooms to ensure the social distancing, which proves to be difficult for those who wander, but our staff are doing their best to redirect whenever possible.

At this time we do not know an end to the required visitor restrictions, so please feel free to contact the facility should you wish to speak with your loved ones without telephones. We’ll continue to do our best to accommodate anything we can to make this time easier on our residents and their families.

I can tell you all with the utmost confidence that our staff has never been more committed to the health and safety of the residents of Bethesda of Beresford as they are now.

Thank you all, stay healthy!
Vanessa L., H.R.
