Our History.

built on a vision created nearly Five decades ago by United Methodists in South Carolina working closely with community leaders in Greenwood. It was
a vision based on providing an enriching & rewarding retirement in a community built on shared Christian values & respect for the dignity & independence of each person.

The result is a master-planned, full-service senior community with the services & amenities that give retirees the freedom to shape their own retirement lifestyle.

We are proud of our history of service even as we constantly search for new ideas & methods with which to improve the lives of those we serve. At Wesley Commons, we always strive to be at the forefront of the initiative to re-engineer retirement services & their systems of delivery. Our goal is to constantly provide better services for a wider spectrum or ages, income & need.

What is a CCRC? 

A Continuing Care Retirement Community usually combines all three levels of care–independent living, assisted living & skilled nursing care–in a single setting. As health needs change, residents can be secure in the knowledge that high-quality supportive services & care are available, when needed, in an attractive, professionally staffed on-site environment.

This full continuum of care is a major benefit of life at Wesley Commons. As a resident, you can count on staying in your community near your friends even as you may require more assistance in daily living.

Our professional staff works with residents, their families & physicians to determine the appropriate level of care needed as certain conditions progress. Your healthcare is regularly evaluated to ensure your needs are being met & choices are addressed at every level–from meal times & venues to social activities & exercise.

Wesley Commons also offers innovative approaches to Alzheimer’s & dementia care. As part of our Assisted Living, we offer a 12-room, state-of-the-art Special Care House which is highly residential in character & features a variety of therapeutic activity stations & an enclosed garden courtyard.

We also provide licensed home health care & in-patient rehabilitation.
