OUR MISSION
Faithfully enhancing the lives of seniors

Aldersgate Village is a faith-based, senior living neighborhood open to people of all denominations and faith backgrounds. Our purpose is not driven by a profit motive, but rather to ensure that seniors of this region receive compassionate, person-centered 
healthcare in a warm and welcoming community.

Our Christian and socially responsible mission is to serve and advocate for those advanced in age. Through actively engaging mind, body, and spirit, we make certain they receive love, care, respect, and dignity in their most vulnerable years.

For more than a century, our mission of service remains – to ensure that individuals not only live, but thrive, as we faithfully enhance the lives of elders in the greater community.

THE PATH OF PROGRESS
According to our most recently finalized audit, both our Debt Service, Coverage Ratio and our Days Cash On Hand were the highest in over 10 years. These represent tremendous advancements in both expense reduction and revenue growth, amounting to a net improvement of nearly one million dollars. Aldersgate boasts one of the largest and fastest turnarounds in the retirement housing industry.

OUR VISION
Stronger Every Day... Always Moving Forward

RECOVERY CENTER
We are providing an entirely new level of rehabilitation to the elderly in the greater Topeka region - and provide a state-of-the-art Medicare and therapy neighborhood for the region.

MAIN LOBBY TRANSFORMATION
The main lobby and reception area in Manchester Lodge is a flexible, community-friendly space to benefit the independent living residents and their guests. From afternoon coffee to the big game to watch, this "living room" is an attractive showcase to provide residents with warm, spacious and comfortable social environments.

AGE-IN-PLACE VILLAS
To give elders peace of mind in modern, comfortable surroundings, we offer six, nearly 2,000 square foot villas equipped with integrated adaptive technologies. Our goal is to help aging adults live independently longer. The villas boast open floor plans with high-end features and advanced technology monitoring systems to provide comforting safety and security.  

NEW FRONT ENTRANCE
We have re-designed our 29th Street entrance by adding signage monuments, lighting and a left turning lane that improve traffic flows and link Aldersgate’s legacy with our vision for the future.
