Wesleyan Life Plan Communities

Wesleyan is known for exceptional senior living. We have been providing senior living services in Elyria for over 120 years. You can count on all lifestyle choices for yourself or someone you love, including maintenance-free independent living, carefree and supportive assisted living, highly specialized memory care, plus comprehensive rehabilitation and long-term care.

Discover Spiritual Life at Wesleyan

Wesleyan is committed to meeting the spiritual and religious needs of all our residents. We recognize that they come from many faith traditions and beliefs. Although we honor the Methodist and Christian roots of Wesleyan, our communities celebrate the diversity of different faiths our residents bring. At Wesleyan, we simply believe a rewarding retirement lifestyle should include opportunities for spiritual growth, counseling and support during life’s challenges. You’ll find just that at Wesleyan Village and Wesleyan Meadows Life Plan Communities.

Meet Our Chaplin

Our Wesleyan Village and Wesleyan Meadows campuses are served by a full time chaplain. Rev. Kurt D. Walker, an ordained minister of the Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (USA), provides pastoral and spiritual care to all residents, their families and the Wesleyan staff regardless of faith tradition ­or no particular faith tradition at all.

Join Us for Worship Services

All are welcome to our non-denominational weekly worship services, as well as additional services throughout the liturgical year, including Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, All Saints’ Day and Christmas.
