To provide a continuum of services that supports health, independence, and dignity. We build this continuum on the belief that a relationship-centered philosophy best sustains body, mind, and spirit.
The United Methodist Homes and its affiliates are successors to the former Methodist home for the Aged at Danbury, CT, an aging 36-bed facility which was closed in 1968 when its residents and patients were transferred to the newly-opened 90-bed Bishop Wicke Health Center on the United Methodist Homes campus in Shelton.
Two years later, in 1970, the 182 unit Wesley Heights, an independent living community, was opened, offering 92 apartments and 90 one- and two-bedroom cottages for retirement living.
A model example of a federally-subsidized housing community, Wesley Heights meets the needs of moderate income individuals. A HUD grant grant helped fund complete renovations of all apartments in the middle court beginning in 2006.
Wesley Heights serves people of all faiths.

A strong community not only meets its members’ basic needs but also works to create long-term solutions to their problems. Provide people with affordable housing, enough to eat and access to affordable health care and you enable them to envision a better future for themselves.
A healthy community is a rich community. When we enjoy good health, when we engage in wellness activities – and when we support people living with disease or disabilities -- there are profound physical and psychological benefits. Simply put, we are all stronger and happier. To support the health and wellness initiatives in your community is to put good health within reach of all.
