The Wesleyan is a welcoming place where seniors can thrive in every stage of their lives.

The non-profit, faith-based senior living community has been providing care for over 60 years. The Methodist Church, The Williamson County Sun, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and the citizens of Georgetown partnered to provide a place for senior citizens to receive the care they need while still living an enriching life.

What makes The Wesleyan unique is its model of progressive care: independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing are all offered on their expansive campus. As residents’ healthcare needs change, they can remain within The Wesleyan community, where they already feel at home and have relationships with staff members, referred to as “teammates,” and other residents.

“People can go from independent [living] to assisted living to skilled nursing,” President and CEO Bethany Sisneroz said. “We really are able to meet people where they are as they go through the process of aging.”

The history and culture of resident involvement in The Wesleyan community, where each individual is empowered to actively shape their future living experiences, really sets The Wesleyan apart from other communities.

The Wesleyan’s motto is “Live Abundantly” and they accomplish this by offering more than 60 activities every week for residents to enjoy. Sisneroz said residents take part in card games, arts and crafts projects, yoga, water aerobics, musical entertainment and educational programming.

Teammates also encourage residents to start clubs or groups centered around their own interests and hobbies.

Individuals who enjoy nature will love The Wesleyan’s walking trails.

“We are situated on about 55 acres of land, and that makes us unique,” Sisneroz said. “We have a walking trail that goes around the entire campus. There are green spaces and outdoor areas for people to get out and enjoy.”

The community offers perks such as:
  • weekly housekeeping service
  • three different dining venues
  • pool
  • beauty salon
  • woodshop
  • transportation to doctor’s appointments, the grocery store and more
The Wesleyan’s teammates care as much about their residents’ social wellbeing as their physical wellbeing. Sisneroz said residents have built lasting friendships and relationships living in the community. Some residents have even found second chances at love and have gotten married at The Wesleyan.

“It really is an intimate community, like a home,” Sisneroz said. “It’s not an apartment complex. There are community rooms on every floor and you'll find people gathered together, doing a variety of activities.”

Sisneroz said The Wesleyan is also exceptional because the community consists of people from all across the county, with different backgrounds and different experiences, coming together to live under one roof. It can be challenging at times, but it can also create opportunities for learning and growth, providing residents with perspectives they otherwise may not have had.
