Meeting Spiritual, Emotional and Everyday Needs of Residents and Families.

Providing ministry to residents, their families and staff in Wesley communities through preaching, Bible study, prayer services, sacraments, home and hospital visitation, counseling and fellowship: the Pastoral Care Ministry of Wesley Senior Ministries is composed of two full-time pastors and nine pastors serving churches close to Wesley communities outside Shelby County.

Wesley's Pastoral Care Ministry offers its services to residents and their families regardless of religious tradition. The Pastoral Care Ministry provides an ecumenical communion of many church traditions and faiths intended to supplement Wesley residents’ church homes. For those neighbors more confined or forgotten, we may become the primary providers of ministry. Through listening to prayer requests, being proactive, and working with management, our Pastoral Care Ministers can respond to a vast array of integrated spiritual, emotional and everyday needs.

Being involved in these life journeys continually reminds us that aging is both an individual and family affair.
