Celebrating more than 30 years of providing compassionate and quality care to seniors and their families in West County.

For many St. Louis residents who live or work in West County and are looking for senior care for their loved ones, the Bethesda Meadow skilled nursing community (formerly known as a “nursing home”) is a popular option.

Bethesda Meadow is located on a beautiful, 14-acre campus, and offers many amenities along with the peace and serenity of a relaxed, suburban environment. It has specialized senior living areas and an expanded senior Rehab & Therapy Center on site for patients who need some additional therapy between being discharged from the hospital and returning home to regain strength, mobility and life skills. Respiratory Therapy services are offered seven (7) days a week.

Residents and family members alike will vouch for the staff’s commitment to excellence in the areas of nursing care, social services, food service and activities.

The beautiful Promenade area features landscaped walking paths and a soothing waterfall with plenty of outdoor seating options. Among those options is a large gazebo, assuring a safe means for enjoying nature and enjoying private time with family and friends.

Residents also have access to many of Bethesda’s community-based services, including our Care Management team and hospice care.

Bethesda Meadow offers specialized accommodations for seniors living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, like many St. Louis senior care communities providing long term care. Bethesda Meadow maintains a safe, secure, comforting environment for its Alzheimer’s residents, including a staff experienced in caring for issues these residents live with every day.

The Bethesda Meadow skilled nursing community (“nursing home”) is licensed for both Medicare and Medicaid beds. Our medical director can work with a senior’s personal physician to facilitate medical care. In addition, you can arrange for a respite care stay if it will accommodate your needs.

Our resident’s individual needs are our primary concern. Our licensed staff of RNs, LPNs, Social Workers, Dieticians, and our certified staff of CNAs provide 24/7 quality nursing care for our residents.

  • Hi Kathy!

    Wanted to let you know that my mom has been rehabbing at Bethesda Meadow for the last 1 ½ weeks. She broke her back for the third time on Christmas Eve and she has been in the hospital and rehab ever since. She is VERY happy there and I wanted you to know what a great facility it is. My mom has been to other facilities in the past so she has something to compare it to. You have done a great job hiring wonderful people. That is our biggest compliment. Though Bethesda Meadows will not be her permanent skilled nursing home (too far away for Dad), I thought you might like to hear our compliments.


  • My mom is very happy with her special vegetarian diet. She has gained weight here and she needed too! My mom is very happy with her PT/OT too. (Buzzing Bee Resident)

  • Hi Marty, I just wanted to send a quick note saying how wonderful Mary & her laundry team are! My Aunt Pat is a resident of Hawthorn Place…Every time I contact Mary about this (labeling new clothes)…she always makes me feel like it’s no big deal. Some people may overlook laundry services, but I have to say they have made my role in my aunt’s care considerably easier and they are very much appreciated!

  • The staff including the aides and nurses were wonderful. Joanna and Debbie went above and beyond; also Jordon was so helpful – they’re exemplary employees. (Carl is a recent rehabilitation program graduate)
