Bethel House Adult Care Homes to open on the east and west sides

WICHITA — Bethel House, a Wichita-based health-care company, is preparing to break ground on the east and west sides for Bethel House Adult Care Homes.

"It offers such an unbelievable alternative to traditional nursing-home placement," says Christine Bacci, director of operations. "A lot of people, they want to avoid (that) at all costs."

The new facilities are what's called home plus, which offers full nursing-home type care in more of a residential-care environment.

"It's just very much being in a nice, elegant house," Bacci says of the homes.

The sites are at 2121 N. Broadmoor near 21st and Rock and 553 S. Holland Lane near Kellogg and Ridge.
