Columbus, Ohio–Wesley At Home, a division of Methodist ElderCare Services, has become a part of the Village Movement and is now operating within 6 Central Ohio communities to foster senior independence for those who are able to remain safely in the comfort of their homes. Communities include: Upper Arlington, Clintonville, Worthington, Bexley, Reynoldsburg and Pickerington, Ohio. This membership-based program provides residents in these communities over the age of 50 with professional home services, companion services and social connection programs to enrich their lives.
In June 2013, two residents of Wesley Glen began reviewing research on how physical and mental activity could affect the onslaught of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Some initial research was based on a book entitled “Now You Can See It,” by Cathy Davidson, and other research in “brain training” performed at The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). A focus group was formed under the leadership of CEO, Margaret Carmany, of Methodist ElderCare Services.
