OUR NEW BETHANY HOME IN BRANDON BECOMES A REALITY
BY DENNIS SEVER, CEO & ADMINISTRATOR Our new home in Brandon is nearly complete! God blessed us with a perfect winter to build, which places our construction ahead of schedule; we plan to open as early as August 1st. It’s very exciting to see everything nearing completion. Our connecting link, “Main Street”, is a huge addition for our residents and visitors; this area will feature a new kitchen, deli, bank, general store, an enlarged community room, therapy pool, whirlpool, changing room with lockers and showers, and a therapy and wellness center. Our new nursing home in Brandon offers 58 private apartments. There are special rooms for couples, as well as new programs for rehab, memory care, hospice and complex nursing. Our new home will have a beauty shop, private dining, a special family room, four neighborhoods, and beautiful great rooms with fireplaces and entertainment centers. Each neighborhood is complete with a deluxe spa room,
which includes a whirlpool tub and built in TV/DVD player. Each resident room is private, including its own bathroom, shower, and heated floor.

RESIDENTS FIRST BY DEBORAH HERRBOLDT,BETHANY HOME ADMINISTRATOR Our residents come first at Bethany! Our priority is to tend to their needs, desires, schedules, safety, and rights in all that we do. It is to our delight, and with thanks to God, that we will soon be able to carry out our mission of service to our residents and families in our beautiful new home in Brandon. We are excited that Bethany residents will soon be enjoying spacious rooms, private bathrooms, and beautiful amenities all while continuing to receive quality care and services in a Christian environment. Bethany’s expansion to Bethany Home Brandon is wonderful but is only a reflection of all that we do to make certain our resident’s needs are met with care and excellence on a daily basis. Over the past six months we have implemented several changes to enrich resident care, safety, and satisfaction. One of our primary focuses has been on making changes to enhance staffing consistency and satisfaction. Our main goal has been to create a team of “universal workers” by cross training employees in order to meet resident needs promptly and professionally. For example, our activity staff have been trained as CNAs so they can assist residents with their personal care needs during activities and at other times as needed. Our housekeepers have also
been trained to assist with meal service. We will continue to train staff across all departments so eventually any staff member can assist a resident with most needs at any time. Our commitment to staff competency and satisfaction is important as we know that this is critical to our being able to ensure the highest quality of life and satisfaction for our residents. Supervision and monitoring resident medical care is also important to ensuring the highest quality of life for our residents. Recently, Jackie Pendergraft, Director of Nursing, organized a “Quality of Life Committee”. This interdisciplinary committee includes representatives from various departments as well as our Medical Director and our Pharmacy Consultant. The committee meets on a monthly basis in order to assure that resident needs are being met at the highest level regarding pain control, medication management, and fall prevention. The Quality of Life Committee is Bethany’s newest committee formed for the purpose of evaluating and promoting quality resident care, safety, and satisfaction. Another committee for this purpose is the Resident Safety Committee, which meets on a weekly basis to assure resident safety from falls and/or injuries. In addition, the Continuous Quality Improvement Committee meets quarterly to assure accountability across all departments regarding regulation compliance, safe practice, and quality care and service delivery. Putting our residents first at Bethany means that we take time to listen and respond to their likes and dislikes especial-
ly when it comes to food. As a result, we recently added “Taco Night” along with “Pizza Night” for residents who want to attend this occasional Friday night activity. Thanks to a warm spring, residents also enjoyed s’mores on our patio resulting in a fun afternoon of sharing great memories, smiles, and laughter. The purchase of a cookie oven and a bread machine has also added warmth to our residents’ hearts and tummies. The aroma alone has been a source of comfort for many residents, families, employees and visitors. At Bethany, our goal is to care for the body, mind, and spirit. Thanks to Pastor Tranberg we continue to put our resident’s spiritual needs first through regular church services, bible study programs, and individual chaplaincy visits. Pastor Tranberg has worked to enhance our spiritual program by adding a men’s bible study. In addition, Pastor Tranberg has enthusiastically promoted the Bethany Word of the Month as a way to keep Bethany’s values of kindness, compassion, and respect for others top of mind for all employees. Kindness, compassion, and respect for others are the factors that make us shine at Bethany. Our families tell us time and again about the great care our employees provide for their loved ones. They tell us about the love that they feel thanks to the actions and the affections of our staff. This is the very heart of how we put our residents first at Bethany. We commend our staff for this and for their excellence in caregiving!

BETHANY NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT BY DOUG LARSON, BETHANY BOARD PRESIDENT As president of the Bethany board of directors, I get to see and hear about all the wonderful things our staff does to take care of the residents of Bethany Home and Bethany Meadows. My experience with Bethany even extends further as my mother is a resident at Bethany Meadows. I can tell you for a fact that Bethany provides great care in a Christian environment. My mom will verify that! As someone who reviews the financial statements every month, I can also tell you that Bethany could not provide that great care without the help, support and donations of our residents, our family members and our generous donors. Donations have helped us provide items like wheelchairs and patio furniture, to fully remodeled spa rooms. Now, with the opening of the new Bethany Home Brandon, we are embarking on a new chapter of our organization, and we need your support even more. Shaping a Legacy Capital Campaign In the near future, we will be asking you to consider making a donation or pledge to help us with this next phase.
Your contribution could help us furnish a room in the new nursing home in Brandon, or it could help us remodel Bethany Home – Sioux Falls to make all the rooms into private rooms. We will have different ways and different levels, so that everyone will be able to help us continue to take care of the elderly. Our “Shaping a Legacy” capital campaign is set up so that your donation will help us in three ways. Donations will help us furnish and equip the new Bethany Home Brandon, remodel Bethany Home Sioux Falls, and help support our Bethany Foundation, so that we will have the funds in future years to continue to support our residents. When you get your “Shaping a Legacy” mailing in the future, please consider joining me in making a donation to help Bethany continue to provide loving care to our community’s elderly in a loving and Christian environment.
Bethany’s Best Event Another way you can help Bethany is to buy tickets to Bethany’s Best Event on Sunday, July 22nd (5:00 – 9:00 p.m.) This fundraiser will be held in the new Bethany Home Brandon facility on the Bethany Meadows campus. The event will help us furnish the family dining room in the new nursing home. This will be a special room where residents and their families can gather for special meals and events. Bethany’s Best Event will feature great food, entertainment, wine tasting, and a raffle with some very special prizes, like a pool party in the new Bethany Meadows pool. You will want to join us for this fun event, if only to see our new nursing home before it opens to the public. You can purchase tickets at Bethany Home or Bethany Meadows, or online at: http:// bethanysbest.eventbee.com.
RESIDENTS & FAMILY BLESSED BY ‘LIVING THE DREAM’ BY BONNIE BURKETT,LSW, MA, BETHANY HOME SOCIAL SERVICES DIRECTOR Our Living the Dream program has blessed us with the opportunity to make big and small dreams come to fruition. Recently, we worked with a family on a dream that may seem small; however, the result was exponentially large. It was a simple request – get “the girls” together for a quiet, simple lunch. We were told, “it’s no big deal”, “don’t go out of your way,” “keep it simple”. We heard these statements time and again throughout planning. In the end, it was simple –lunch from a local restaurant, flowers, pie and ice cream. To peek into the Hospitality Room where they were having their lunch, you could tell by the looks on their faces that it was anything but “simple” to them. The smiles were from ear to ear and the laughter could be heard down the hall. Three of the “girls” sent thank you cards after the event, emphasizing their enjoyment, appreciation, and warm hearts. They said, “thank you for the beautiful lunch, you made us
feel like queens – thank you for your kind hearts”. “We had such a great time for mom’s special lunch, your planning and preparation made our day!” “Your gift to us was so dear and precious, your kind words brought sunshine into my life. Thank you for your kind deeds today, your staff are all so gracious.” These statements prove that something so easy and simple for us to provide, means the world to our residents and families.

GOLF TOURNEY GARNERS RECORD SUPPORT BY TREVOR GUTHMILLER, DIRECTOR OF BETHANY FOUNDATION There’s not enough space in this newsletter to tell you all the great things going on at our Brandon and Sioux Falls Bethany Campuses. I’ll give it a try, and tell you about our two hugely successful events. Last November, more than 150 supporters attended our annual Foundation Dinner, raising $21,777 for the Bethany Foundation. How fantastic! Featured speaker and former Survivor competitor Holly Hoffman (Eureka, SD) spoke enthusiastically about faith as sustenance both on the show and in her life. I think her remarks touched us all. Then, the 11th Annual Curt Alberty Golf Tournament on May 18 garnered record support at the Brandon Golf Course, with Foundation proceeds totaling more than $17,000. Dozens of volunteers and 32 teams made this event a huge success. Special thanks to our sponsors, participants and volunteers! We were happy to use proceeds from Foundation events to bring a long-time Bethany goal to reality. The Bethany Foundation board of directors voted to commit $30,000 of Foundation proceeds for our new Sprinter Van; funds were matched by Bethany Home and Bethany Meadows. The new van can transport 12 people and is wheelchair accessible. It has transported residents to significant and leisure activities and appointments. If you’ve had any part in our Foundation Dinner or golf tournament, please know that you’ve helped to provide this special amenity for our residents! With additional funds and ongoing support, we are continuing to help support the residents and staff of the Bethany community. With those events behind us, we are planning our next big event, Bethany’s Best on July 22nd. Check out page 1 for more information; we hope you will join us for food, wine, raffle, entertainment and fun!
Brandon Police Chief and Bethany Supporter David Krull officially kicked off the Golf Tournament with his playing of his bagpipes. Thank you, David!
The winning golf team includes was sponsored Farm Credit Services and AgStar Financial. Congratulations! Jayne Knochemus was the proud winner of the grill set, engraved and donated by Monte’s Wood Shop of Brandon.

CURRENT RESIDENTS OFFERED ‘FIRST DIBS’ ON NEW ROOMS BY BONNIE BURKETT,LSW, MA SOCIAL SERVICES DIRECTOR
What a fabulous spring we’ve had! Our most recent articles focused on the wonderful progression of our building project in Brandon. The wonderful weather allowed construction crews to work ahead of schedule for our grand opening August 1st. Our residents at both locations are excited as well; I would bet we have folks packing their bags already in anticipation of moving. Each resident family recently received a letter, which provided information regarding upcoming options and changes. More, the letter invited you to contact our office to schedule tours of the new Brandon location beginning in June. Our team is coordinating the tours, as current Bethany residents will have “first dibs” on rooms. Of course, residents are more than welcome to stay exactly where they are. Our commitment to care is expanding, but not changing. Also, watch our next newsletter for information on upcoming improvements at Bethany Home in Sioux Falls. As always, if you have questions or would like to set up a tour, please don’t hesitate to call us at 338-2351.
ACCESSIBLE BUS CREATES MORE OPTIONS FOR ACTIVITIES BY TONIA AKER, BETHANY MEADOWS ACTIVITIES COORDINATOR Bethany’s activity program is now more versatile and accessible; expect to be seeing us in the community more often! Our new van holds 10-12 residents and has been used to enjoy outing to Grand Falls Casino, the Porter’s Sculpture Park, country drives, shopping trips, lunch outings, and a fun afternoon at Knobloch’s Greenhouse. There, residents found beautiful greenery to decorate their patios. We look forward to continuing to use the new van for recreational and health activities, and thank the Foundation and Bethany Community for their support, so we could make this dream a reality! While not venturing out in the van, residents have stayed busy while home at Bethany Meadows. With help from
▲ A full bus of residents enjoyed an outing to marvel at and purchase flowers for their patios.
Debi, a master gardener, residents and staff planted flowers for their patio areas and took them home to enjoy. Residents and families also enjoyed a variety of cookouts with our new grill in the courtyard. The grill is available for any resident use. No reservation required.
CELEBRATING THE PAST & FUTURE BY DIANE DAUGHTERS-LORENZ, BETHANY HOME ACTIVITES DIRECTOR In April we celebrated National Volunteer month. The timing was perfect, as we reflect on 60 years of service within the Bethany community and all that have helped us become who we are. Looking back, I would like to say thank you to those who have called Bethany their home, families who have shared their loved ones with us, to staff who give of themselves each day and all the volunteers who help in countless ways . You have all taken the time…the
time to give a word of comfort, to lend a hand to the weary , to give praise for faltering steps, wept with those who were in sorrow, and cheer those on who return to their homes. The activity staff look forward to the future, as the writer once said…”Come along with me, the best is yet to be.”
TOUR de KOTA STOPS AT BETHANY MEADOWS ◄Hundreds of bicyclists were greeted with cheering and encourage-

WELLNESS DIRECTOR TO ENRICH FITNESS The Bethany community will have more opportunities for health, especially with the addition of our new wellness director Sami Strohm. Sami, a Sioux Falls native, recently completed a degree in Exercise Science from Southwest Minnesota State in Marshall, MN. She will oversee operations of our new pool, as well as wellness and fitness activities for residents and staff. While in Marshall, Sami worked at the Marshall area YMCA and developed lifelong friendships with members there. As she says she was sad to leave, she was excited to graduate and move home to the Sioux Falls area. Sami is engaged and will live with her to-be husband, Braden Parks, in Brandon. Braden has a great job at Sioux Falls Kitchen and Bath as a Project Manager. Sami says she is motivated to see what the Lord has in store for her at Bethany. She says a huge “thank you Bethany” for the amazing opportunity, and cannot wait to embark upon a meaningful opportunity at the Bethany community.

LONG-TIME EMPLOYEE JOINS BETHANY’S ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM The newest member of our Bethany Meadows’ administrative team is actually one of our longest-running Bethany Meadows Employees. Jane Gullickson embarked upon her career at Bethany Meadows back in 2004, as a high school senior CNA. Throughout high school, college, and after, Jane returned as an employee of nursing, housekeeping, and as our 2008 administrative intern. She graduated cum laude from USD in 2009; then, spent 9
months as Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar to Lismore Australia. There, Jane earned a graduate diploma in public health leadership. While overseas, Jane also volunteered weekly at a local care facility, studied alongside students from SE Asia, and engrossed herself in a universal healthcare system. She was also first-ever MPH student to garner an internship with the local health system, where she assisted in planning, implementing, and evaluating therapeutic
recreation for elderly citizens. Jane re-joins Bethany Meadows through our transition to opening the Bethany Home in Brandon. Right away, she’ll ensue the responsibilities of the marketing and admissions coordinator position. Jane says she exponentially excited to be back on the team and part of this vibrant community. If you’re in the area, please stop and welcome Jane back!
STAFF MEMBER WEDS AT BETHANY HOME SIOUX FALLS BY PASTOR DENNIS TRANGBERG, BETHANY CHAPLAI N
▲Bethany Home CNA Bryan and his bride, April, wed at Bethany Home Sioux Falls. Friends, residents and staff attended the blessed event, officiated by Bethany Chaplain Dennis Tranberg.
April and Bryan faced each other before the altar at Bethany Home, standing before Bethany residents, staff and friends who were assembled for the their wedding. Facing each other, April & Bryan
made a vow to give and receive, to speak and listen, to inspire and respond, and in all circumstances to be loyal with my whole life and with all my being until death parts us. This wedding was a first for me as
Chaplain of Bethany Home and the first since St. Mark’s Lutheran Church worshipped at Bethany Home prior to their church building project in the mid-1950’s. It was the first wedding ceremony at Bethany Home which invited residents and staff as guests. The groom, Bryan, is a CNA at Bethany Home. He wanted residents whom he has come to know and love to be part of the wedding celebration. Wedding guests smiled from ear to ear when they watched Bryan enter with the Chaplain and stand by the altar. And when the bride entered with her wedding dress flowing, they were so excited and watched with their mouths wide open. You could see them form the word “wow”! Many residents wept, no doubt recalling their wedding many years ago and some remembering fondly the love of their marriage partner. Bethany Home has been a place where former resident families have chosen to conduct their family funerals & baptisms. But a real wedding ceremony, it was a first for Bethany Home in a long, long time. And what a beautiful, blessed event!

TEAMWORK PROVIDES RESIDENT-FOCUSED CARE BY JACKIE PENDERGRAFT, BETHANY HOME SIOUX FALLS DIRECTOR OF NURSING The Nursing department remains committed to continuous quality improvement regarding resident care and service delivery. One of the best ways we can achieve this is through our continued efforts to improve staffing consistency, education, and training. Recently, we hired Tally Beeners, RN as our Staff Development Coordinator to ensure our success in achieving these goals. Tally is responsible for training and working with all our departments at Bethany Home Sioux Falls. Furthermore, her main focus is on training and conducting return demonstrations with our nurses and CNA staff. Tally’s attention to detail assuring individual nursing skills and preferences has also allowed her to assist our staff in determining the neighborhood where their knowledge and skills can best be applied. Tally’s work does not stop there. Her coaching, praising, and encouraging are ongoing, which helps ensure our goal to achieve consistency in staffing through employee satisfaction. Our emphasis continues to be on resident centered care. Our employees have done an excellent job in this endeavor. We continue to encourage and respect our residents’ choices regarding their daily activity schedule. For
example, whether they wish to sleep in and their preferences related to bathing time of day and frequency. Resident choices regarding dining times and food preferences also continue to be honored. We are pleased with the positive difference that resident centered care is making in the quality of life for our residents as well as the quality of work life for our staff. Representatives from all departments continue to work together during meal service to promote teamwork and to assure that our residents have an enjoyable dining experience. This is greatly appreciated and the residents love it as well. Thank you to everyone for making a difference in our residents’ daily lives. The nursing department is also coordinating a Quality of Life meeting which will occur each month. This will be an interdisciplinary approach which will include our Medical Director, Administrator, Pharmacy Consultant, Director of Nursing, Staff Development Coordinator, Medicare Coordinator, Care Managers, Rehab Director, Social Services, and Activity Director. This team will look at residents who are on medications such as antipsychotics, hypnotics, anti-anxiety, mood stabilizers and pain medication. The
Bethany Home Executive Board
residents will be reviewed on a quarterly basis and we will look at their overall well-being. Nursing facilities are required to do a gradual dose reduction on some of these medications according to CMS regulations. The interdisciplinary team works cohesively to make improvements toward achieving the best in quality of life and care for every resident that we serve. Bethany Home Sioux Falls is a wonderful home for our residents and families thanks to the awesome work and dedication of our interdisciplinary team. I continue to be extremely grateful to be a part of the Bethany family as the integrity and high degree of quality care shines throughout our campus, inside and out, especially the improvements to our grounds thanks to our wonderful maintenance department.
