Exceptional Senior Living Nestled in the Heart of Webster Groves

Vibrant, active and full of diversity, that’s Bethesda Orchard. This is the St. Louis senior living retirement community that reflects the spirit of its home in Webster Groves.

Our residents are out enjoying the Old Orchard neighborhood’s shops and restaurants. Then they can enjoy Bethesda Orchard’s many amenities, which include an interior courtyard, walking paths, gardens and a gazebo with benches to allow residents and guests to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

In addition to offering an outstanding menu, our elegant dining room provides gorgeous views of the parklike setting of our courtyard.

Say hello to a maintenance-free senior living lifestyle that offers you the opportunity to pursue all your interests. If gardening is one of your passions, join our residents in tending to the flowers in our gardens. You’ll also find gatherings around the piano in the lobby or a game of bridge in one of the lounges.

Our residents find plenty of opportunity to socialize, whether at meals in the dining room or in the Wellness Center, which includes a treadmill, exercise bike and a large flat-screen TV where you can enjoy your favorite show.

There’s a library with plenty of reading material for quiet time, and if you like venturing out amidst the city, regular trips are scheduled (transportation provided) to museums, the ballpark and local wineries.

With 171 apartments offering a variety of floor plans, there’s something for everyone at Bethesda Orchard.

  • I too am happy here at Bethesda Orchard for all the reasons that my husband J.J. mentioned. The location here in Webster Groves is ideal with all the advantages of city living and the privacy of our own individual apartment with a great view of the lovely garden. The Management and the staff are all friendly and courteous. Bethesda Orchard has suited us to a ‘t’.

  • I like it here because it is operated in a very efficient manner. The maintenance is excellent. It has a great exercise room with the finest up-to-date equipment, including a very good pool table. The dining room is very pleasantly decorated with fine service, fine linen and a nice glass of wine with the meal. The Administration shows imagination and care in having friendly extra activities, such as movies, lectures, games, and religious activities. We are allowed to eat at all different tables with many friendly, interesting people. All in all, I like it here.

    ~J. J. Donahay

  • In the neighborhood where I used to live, most people were at work in the daytime or closed up in their houses at night. It seemed like just my dog, Jack, and I lived there. Here at Bethesda Orchard, I only notice that after 10 at night. The rest of the day is filled with people and things to do if I want to, or I can go into my apartment, shut the door, and be by myself. It feels so comfortable here; I think I’ll stay awhile.
