What Is Benevolent Care?

The word ‘benevolent’ is derived from the Latin bene (well) and volent (to wish), to wish well; desiring to help others; showing goodwill or kindness. Benevolent Care is a way to support those who need assistance financially to maintain their residence.

When Might Someone Need Benevolent Care?

As we age, we may look to move in to a senior living community where we can continue to age in place with dignity; all while having access to different levels of care that we may require through the aging process. If residents, by no fault of their own, deplete their resources and no longer have sufficient resources to sustain their residence, our non-profit organization has sought to serve residents with a Benevolent Care Fund to help subsidize the cost of the resident’s rent and personal care charges.  

In these instances, residents are able to apply for assistance. Their finances are reviewed, and qualified residents are eligible to receive the appropriate support needed.

Who Funds Wesley Enhanced Living’s Benevolent Care Fund?

The Wesley Enhanced Living Benevolent Care program is funded through donations. Many donate cash, monthly pledges, memorial gifts, or estate bequests. 

Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) has a long charitable history of providing care and services for older adults. The Wesley Enhanced Living Foundation for Benevolent Care supports our residents and communities through our charitable giving programs. The WEL Foundation is committed to providing opportunities that will support the tradition of caring and giving that has positively impacted resident life in the Wesley Enhanced Living communities for decades.

Donations are graciously accepted in any amount and can be made at any time of the year.  If a donor chooses, a donation can be made in honor of a special occasion or as a memorial tribute for a life well-lived.

At Wesley Enhanced Living, we seek to attract board members, employees, and residents committed to doing the right thing – in recognizing and fulfilling our responsibilities to our mission: To make a compelling difference in the lives of our residents through providing excellence and innovation in aging services.
