Century of Caring
Bethlen's Unique History
Thank you to the Embassy of Hungary in Washington D.C. for their generous support of Bethlen Communities and our Hungarian roots.
At Bethlen Communities, people of all ages have been living, working and caring for one another for over 100 years. Caring for others is at the heart of Bethlen Communities. Starting as an orphanage at the Park Hotel on the hill overlooking Ligonier in 1921 and adding a home for care of the elderly in 1924, Bethlen has grown to the present continuing care retirement community with several branch campuses throughout Ligonier. Following is a chronologic overview of Bethlen’s story.
Help us reflect on Bethlen’s first century of care as we anxiously step into the next 100 years. We are asking for you to share your favorite Bethlen story, and to donate today to help us make many new memories with our staff and residents for years to come.
