The Wesley Community

 
Overview
The Wesley Community is a mission-guided, not-for-profit organization sponsored by United Methodist Health and Housing. For over 35 years we have provided services and programs with a commitment to caring, compassion and excellence. We began as an innovative combination of independent housing for older adults and skilled nursing care on a single site and have grown to today’s multiplex of supportive services that enhance hundreds of lives daily.

Wesley’s housing for seniors includes the independent apartments at Woodlawn Commons and Embury Apartments. The Assistive Living program at Woodlawn Commons provides a more supportive environment.

In addition to short-term in-patient rehabilitation, Wesley Health Care Center provides long-term care, and houses outpatient rehabilitation services and Wesley Evergreen Adult Day Services.

Within our community, residents and clients have access to a wide array of conveniences including hair salons, shops, and a restaurant. Pet therapy, our intergenerational nursery school program and activities to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs of the residents are a few of the programs that enhance the quality of life of Wesley’s residents and clients.
What Makes Wesley Different
A letter to you from the Wesley staff…

Of course you want to know what makes Wesley different from other organizations that offer health care services and elder housing. We know that while location and buildings and programming are important, what you really want is to make sure that the people tending to the needs of your loved ones are caring, competent and committed to it.

We who staff Wesley are proud of our reputation for excellence, innovation, and a personal approach to care. We understand that a family’s peace of mind is strongly linked to their loved one’s comfort and safety. We take that very seriously.

We believe in our residents as individuals. We encourage and support them in their efforts to become and remain pain free, mobile, independent, or whatever else is important to them. We honor and defend their dignity. We treat them respectfully, whatever their age or condition or ability to respond.

We listen to their stories, laugh and cry with them, and treat them with compassion, warmth, and thoughtfulness. We know who they are and call them by their names.

To us, it’s more than a job..
