St. Louis-based nonprofit Bethesda Health Group hosted a community open house Wednesday to celebrate the opening of Charless Village, an expansion at the Bethesda Southgate/Bethesda Terrace campus in South St. Louis County.

In an effort to continue to meet the needs of a growing senior population, Charless Village will offer dedicated short-term rehabilitation, assisted living and adult day club services.

Complete with 36 private rooms with private baths and showers, the state-of-the-art Bethesda Rehab & Therapy Center at Bethesda Southgate will offer rehabilitation care for seniors needing additional recovery after a hospital stay, according to a news release.

The $15 million project will also include an 18-unit assisted living apartment community and an adult day care center. Both will be new services added on the Telegraph Road campus, which already provides skilled nursing and memory care — Bethesda Southgate — and independent senior living — Bethesda Terrace — the release stated.
