Long-Term Care for Seniors and Nursing Home in Bismarck, ND

Your choice for compassionate, personal care.

When chronic health issues, long-term illness or a prolonged recovery diminishes an individual’s functional capacity for daily living, care in a skilled nursing facility is often the best option. While some people still hold outdated notions of what a skilled nursing home is, the goals of a modern long-term skilled nursing facility are wellness, quality of life, and helping residents remain as independent as possible.

“Benedictine-Bismarck is a top-notch, well-run facility and we liked the idea that it was faith-based. It’s a very close knit community. It has a small-town feel and a real family atmosphere. We have peace of mind knowing the staff truly wants dad and everyone else to life their life to the best that they can be every day.”

– Father Mark Aune, Family Member of Current Skilled Nursing Resident
