About Us

We’re a diverse tapestry of people, place and purpose

Aldersgate is not one place, but many. Throughout our hundreds of acre campus and 73-year history, Aldersgate continues to evolve, just like the elders and communities we honor and serve.

We celebrate the past with our heritage in the Methodist tradition, and we welcome the present and build toward the future with bridges between generations, faiths, sexual identities, races and cultures.

Aldersgate is not one place, people or idea—but many.

Valuing Diversity, Inclusion & Equity
Since Aldersgate is located in the ethnically and culturally diverse East Charlotte Community, Aldersgate Leadership is committed to infusing greater diversity, equity and inclusion in our strategic planning across all aspects of the organization. We embrace diversity, treating everyone with dignity and respect. We support an inclusive culture that honors all voices. We work toward creating a more equitable future for our residents, local businesses, community and team members.

Our ultimate goal is to make Aldersgate richly diverse in its residents, team members, and board members and fully embrace the many dimensions of diversity, including race, age, religion, color, ethnicity, sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, disability, culture, socioeconomic status and other characteristics that make our senior living community unique. As a certified SAGECare Platinum-level organization, we train our teams and executives to become culturally aware allies so they can better serve our LGBTQ residents.

Being Anti-racist
Aldersgate is committed to being anti-racist. That means abandoning the role of bystander and engaging in listening, learning and acting in equitable ways to support people of color in the ongoing struggle for racial justice. We will strive to identify and dismantle inequitable systems to benefit our elders, team members and community. Visit our Anti-racist page for educational resources or to listen to our podcast.
