Meet our team

What is the defining difference at Aldersgate? Simply put, we are a non-profit  organization, rather than part of a for-profit chain of communities headquartered elsewhere. We live our motto, “Naturally invested in community.”

Aldersgate’s executive leadership is from and for this community. We have deep roots and a vested interest in putting our residents, team members and neighborhoods first. The most significant difference between a for-profit community and Aldersgate is that revenue is not distributed to shareholders, owners or investors. Instead, money is reinvested into the operations, lifestyle options, services and the betterment of the Aldersgate community, residents and clients as well the greater community of East Charlotte.

As we plan for our future, we actively engage and respect the voice of our residents, with current residents participating as voting members on our board of directors and all committees.

Outside the Aldersgate campus, we sit at the table with city leaders, partners and planners to shape and redefine senior well-being. Moreover, we believe that an economically healthy neighborhood, including local businesses, are good for Aldersgate and our team members.
