Rosen Place on 8th Assisted Living will provide a much needed added service to the residents of Stanley and Mountrail County. Because most Assisted Living facilities are located in larger towns, seniors are forced to move away from smaller communities to have access to this kind of care. Not only does this impact them, it also affects their families who now have to travel to visit them. The nearest Assisted Living to us is 60 miles to the east in Minot. We know we are losing Stanley residents to these Assisted Living facilities in Minot and other large cities. The Mountrail County Health Foundation is committed to finding a solution to allow our Stanley residents to enjoy their last years within their community, where they have lived and contributed to for so many years. Rosen Place on 8th will be the perfect place and location for our residents to continue to live and contribute to their community.
The Mountrail County Health Foundation (MCHF) has been diligently working on helping fund the construction and furnishings of Rosen Place on 8th. The Foundation’s purpose is to provide avenues through which donors can share in the philanthropic goals of the Mountrail County Medical Center and Mountrail Bethel Home. In the past years Mountrail County Health Foundation has assisted in funding 1.) Phase One; the Emergency Room, Ambulance Bay, and CT scanner addition; and 2.) Phase Two; the expansion of the T.H. Reiarson Rural Health Clinic. Now, the Mountrail County Health Foundation is focusing on Phase Three, which is assisting with the expansion/renovation of the Mountrail Bethel Home. Thinking outside the box, Mountrail County Health Foundation has been researching and putting into place different ideas as to how to receive funding for this project. We have been working closely with several entities that award grant money. One of the grant opportunities we have been chosen to be a part of is the St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation’s Twice Blessed program.
It’s a truly a blessing when you give a gift to others. We’re honored to be working with St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation to double your blessings during our TWICE BLESSED campaign for funding to help with the purchasing of the needed furnishings for Rosen Place on 8th.
