Havenwood….where residents are cared for without regard to age, sex, race, color, creed, religion, handicap, or national origin. The Home is licensed by the State of Minnesota, certified for Medicare and Medicaid, and complies with all standards mandated by regulating agencies.
Havenwood Care Center (formerly Beltrami County Nursing Home) has a long history of caring for the elderly. Originally, long-term care services were provided at the Lake Julia farm, 15 miles north of Bemidji. From 1917 until 1968, that facility was one of the few in the region dedicated to the ill and aged who required long-term care. In 1968, the old home was retired and a new 85 bed facility opened at our current location. In 1974, a 48 bed addition extended capacity to 133 beds. We currently utilize 90 beds.
Although the site has changed, the same dedication and spirit of love and understanding exists. We continue our pledge to maintain the highest possible standards of nursing care and to provide social, recreational, intellectual, spiritual, physical and re-motivational activities specifically designed to meet individual needs.
Havenwood is a place where the joys, frustrations, and excitement of living are shared by residents and staff.
