Aldersgate Village takes a personalized approach in offering a comprehensive continuum of care to older adults.

Renessa Lolley, director of sales and marketing, said Aldersgate Village is “a life-plan community with all levels of care, including independent living, assisted living, memory care, long-term care and rehabilitation.”

Aldersgate Village, on the outskirts of southwest Topeka at 7220 S.W. Asbury Drive, is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes Inc. It has been at its present 431-unit campus since 1979.

Lolley said the retirement community is special for several reasons, including “our caring and dedicated staff, friendly residents and beautiful 168-acre campus.”

Renessa Lolley and Janet and Jerry Rediker talk about Aldersgate Village which was named Best Retirement Community for 2017.

In addition to providing various levels of living arrangements, Aldersgate Village prides itself on programs that meet residents’ social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs, all delivered in a Christian environment.

“Residents most enjoy having the freedom and independence to continue doing the activities they love,” she said, “such as gardening while they are surrounded by beautiful green space in a peaceful environment.”

Lolley said Aldersgate Village has maintained its high level of resident care by making customer service a top priority achieved by good communication and a hard-working, dedicated staff.
