Bethania, a home for the aged and infirm was founded in 1946 by the Mennonite Benevolent Society, Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 1950 the institution was situated 10 miles (16 km) north of Winnipeg on the banks of the Red River. The patients were cared for in two large houses which have a total capacity of 80 patients. The houses were located on an estate of 110 acres. This land was seeded to vegetables and satisfied the needs of the institution adequately. Pigs, cows, and chickens were also raised and provided the patients with fresh meat, eggs, and dairy products at all times. The executive committee in 1950 consisted of J. J. Schulz, President; H. J. Willms, Secretary-Treasurer; J. P. Friesen; and J. J. Klassen, Vice-President. The matron of the institution in 1950 was Miss Maria Vogt.

In 2008 Bethania was a 148-bed faith-based Personal Care Home. It also housed a specialized nine-bed assessment and treatment unit for behaviorally challenged clients.
