Methodist Retirement Communities in Charlotte

Methodist Retirement Communities in Charlotte

For Methodist senior care in Charlotte, Aldersgate is the name to know. The 227-acre Aldersgate campus on the city’s east side provides a range of senior living options in a village-like setting with a stocked lake, rose and azalea gardens, and a three-hole golf course. Since the mid-1940s, the campus has expanded from a single care home to a complex with a full range of senior services.

Independent Methodist living at Aldersgate

Active seniors who want the benefits of a supportive community can choose among apartments at Epworth Place and the campus’ Francis Residential Building, cottages at Azalea View, and executive homes in Wesley Glen. All residents receive one meal daily as part of their plan, which means less time in the kitchen. If and when independent living residents need a little extra help, Aldersgate at Home provides housekeeping and errand help along with medication schedule reminders, home safety checks, and more.

Assisted living at Parker Terrace

Residents who need daily personal care help and round the clock assistance can find it at Parker Terrace. Parker Terrace also maintains a packed calendar of social, wellness, and spiritual events, such as

  • Weekly pet therapy visits
  • Senior fitness and stretching classes several times each week
  • Art classes
  • Bible study, church services, Catholic Communion services, and other worship events
  • Movie nights, musical performances, and holiday parties

Skilled nursing and rehabilitative care at Asbury

Aldersgate’s skilled nursing residence, Asbury Care Center, provides Medicare-certified services to residents who have chronic or acute nursing needs. Among the services offered at Asbury is Genesis Rehab, which delivers physical, occupational, and speech therapy to Aldersgate residents after surgery, injury, or illness. Genesis Rehab services are also available at other locations on campus.

Memory care at Cuthbertson Village

Aldersgate has created a small ‘town square’ setting for its residents with dementia that harkens back to the 1940s and offers the opportunity to socialize with neighbors in an easy-to-navigate setting. Among the features designed to help memory-care patients are a potting shed for hands-on garden activities, an old-fashioned soda shop and movie theater for afternoons out, and a pet shop that invites residents to help take care of the animals.

Cuthbertson Village is located next to the Ray Hall Community Center, where residents can do banking and shopping, visit the post office, and go to the salon. The Hall Center also contains a large living area for social gatherings, a chapel, and a workout area with a heated pool.

A hub of the Charlotte community

Aldersgate is obviously a community unto itself, but it blends with the city at large, too. School groups, tourists, and others visit the on-campus Charlotte Museum of History and the adjacent Hezekiah Alexander House, built in 1774. The museum sponsors monthly talks on local and state history as well as special free events such as long-rifle workshops and folk music performances.
Aldersgate is also home to the United Methodist Church Western North Carolina Conference, which oversees the campus and other retirement centers in the region. The Conference also operates three UMAR facilities at Aldersgate, which provide residential care and job training for developmentally disabled adults.
