A STATEMENT FROM THE ALDERSGATE BOARD OF DIRECTORS ABOUT DIVERSITY, INCLUSION and EQUITY:
Aldersgate is located in the uniquely diverse East Charlotte Community. In 2016, the Board of Directors at Aldersgate engaged to develop an organization-wide diversity and inclusion strategic plan to be implemented and evaluated ongoing. Our organization is committed to embracing diversity and treating everyone with dignity and respect, and to support an inclusive culture. The ultimate goal is to make Aldersgate more equitable for elders we serve, staff, and board members by fully embracing all dimensions of diversity including race, age, religion, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, disability, culture, socioeconomic status, and other facets of life that make our community unique.

Personal vehicles are welcomed at Aldersgate. We have many convenient parking options throughout our campus.
Are there events for families?
Yes! Aldersgate hosts many events each month. Families and the community are welcomed to attend many of these.
Will I need to change doctors?
No, Aldersgate makes it easy to continue seeing your current healthcare provider.
How does the process work?
Residents join the community as active, independent adults by selecting a residence of their choice.
Upon selection, a 10% deposit (of selected entrance fee) is made to hold their cottage, apartment or villa until move-in.
Residents pay a one-time entrance fee and an ongoing monthly service fee just prior to moving in. These fees vary based on style and size of the residence chosen and whether it is occupied as a single person or a couple.
Residents move to Aldersgate and enjoy the freedom and peace of mind provided by not having to worry about home maintenance and/or burdening loved ones with potential future long-term care needs.
