Bethany Home Retirement Center… just that… a retirement home
established in 1923.
The dream of a man, Reverend Adoph Krebs, the pastor of
Presbyterian Church, Galena, Ill., who saw a need for a Christian
home for older people in the community. He shared this dream with
the Rev. William C. Laube, who, after Rev. Krebs' death, championed
this cause and secured the support of the Synod of the West of the
Presbyterian Church, U.S.A.
Bethany Home began in the beautiful Christian Loetscher home on
Lincoln Avenue through the generous gift of his family on November
1, 1923. Dr. Wm. C. Laube served as the first president of the
newly established Board of Trustees and continued to serve on the
board until his death in 1944.
Numerous additions and renovations have taken place over the years
to accommodate the need for increased occupancy and also to update
living areas. One such undertaking took place in 1975 when the
construction of a three million-dollar addition took place doubling
the homes occupancy. This consisted of the construction of the
second floor nursing facility, which is licensed by the State of
Iowa, and the 1976 apartment settings found on the first and third
floors. The Loetscher home and the addition in 1958 continued to
provide single room residential settings.
Bethany Home continues today to provide services and living areas
for both active retirees and those needing nursing care. In 2003,
another major construction project resulted in 24 new apartment
settings and 17 new nursing facility rooms that allowed us to
become the first nursing facility in Dubuque to offer all private
rooms to our residents.
In September 2011, we opened our latest addition to Bethany Home.
This three story structure features a fifteen stall garage on the
first floor, a Memory Care Unit and dedicated activity room, and a
spacious exercise area complete with a 1/10th mile walking track
and exercise machines monitored by security cameras for safety.
Bethany Home provides comfortable retirement living for all of our
residents with services including meals, housekeeping, laundry
services, maintenance, numerous lounge areas, a library, planned
activities, and transportation for appointments. Staff is on duty
Bethany Home is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization which is

men and women who complement and enhance the services we offer at
