The Ethos Story

Ethos Home Care was formed in February of 2014 by Bethany Retirement Living (Fargo, ND), Eventide Senior Living Communities (Moorhead, MN) and Knute Nelson (Alexandria, MN). Ethos Home Care provides personalized care and services to individuals in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Each partner organization, on its own, is widely recognized for providing innovative services to aging adults throughout a continuum of care. Additionally, and most importantly, each partner possesses similar values and is committed to achieving the highest quality of care for their organizations to successfully accomplish their nonprofit missions.

Ethos is a Greek word that means, "The distinctive character, spirit, and attitudes of a people, culture". We believe this truly embodies the characteristics and fundamental beliefs on which this partnership exists. The "T" as noted in the logo, is representative of our unity as partners, Christ as the center of our mission and care. The "river" as depicted in the logo brings together the strong, formidable partnership of Bethany, Eventide, and Knute Nelson.
