About The Gardens at Barry Road
Assisted Living and Memory Care

Inspired Care is the Key to Who We Are

A Mission of Faith


  • Not-for-Profit Organization

    Since 1959, our parent company Bethesda Senior Living Communities has been providing quality service to our country’s aging population, and continues to serve with excellence through our independent, assisted living and memory care communities and through benevolent outreach.

  • Faith-Based Organization

    As a faith-based organization, we embrace a philosophy of selfless service. For us, faith is more than any particular religious tradition. Rather, we serve seniors and our communities through care, advocacy, respect and virtuous business practices.

  • Investing in Our Residents

    As a not-for-profit community, giving back is a critical part of our mission. We have a number of outreach programs for our residents and our greater communities. Learn more about our giving programs here.

Senior Wellness and Memory Care

Our memory care team includes a full-time Memory Care Director who brings great expertise to our community. We provide the most intensive care, supervision and specialized activities to keep the mind sharp. We offer both private and companion apartments in a 24-hour secure environment. We strive to help residents engage in life through the development of personal connections with other residents and family members.

Companion Apartments

Our Companion Apartments offer unbeatable value, providing an affordable option for high-quality care, and the opportunity for isolated older adults to experience the health benefits of connection and community. Studies show that older adults who move from an isolated home environment to a community setting experience even greater health benefits from the daily social interaction than with just adding regular medication management and nutrition at home. In particular, for residents with memory loss, studies show that social interaction supports maintaining cognitive function, language skills, and a healthy routine.

Bethesda Senior Living Communities

We pride ourselves on our manageable size, our sense of community in Kansas City, and our peaceful atmosphere. But as part of a faith-based senior living organization with national reach, the Gardens at Barry Road has all the resources to meet our residents’ needs, and the ability to make decisions right here where you live. Read more about our parent company and our faith-based mission, including ways we give back.

A Private Place to Call Home

The Gardens at Barry Road residents enjoy a well-connected social life, from the restaurant-style dining to our common areas flooded in natural light to our cultural outings. To balance this activity, residents also enjoy the independence and autonomy of unwinding in their own private apartments. Learn more about our services and amenities.
