United Methodist Elder Care Mission Statement
We are a community where older persons live in comfort, dignity and with purpose.
The original concept of providing affordable living options for seniors was developed in the late 1960’s by an innovative group of entrepreneurs and dedicated United Methodists. Motivated by this concept and desiring to give back to the community, this group of founders raised the needed capital funds to construct and open Winslow Gardens Retirement Center in 1971.
United Methodist Elder Care expanded its service offerings from independent living to assisted living apartments in Winslow Gardens and then in 1978, opened Linn Health Care Center where residents could receive skilled nursing and rehabilitation, as well as long term care.
In 2011, United Methodist Elder Care opened Arbor Hill Assisted Living in the Federal Hill section of Providence. This 53-bed facility of private apartments of various configurations has a fully staffed kitchen and medical and administrative offices on the premises.
ElderCare Consultants, LLC is the for-profit subsidiary of United Methodist Elder Care developed to outsource elder care management services to businesses as well as provide in-home nursing care. In 2013, ElderCare Consultants, LLC was contracted by the Woonsocket Housing Authority to manage the assisted living facility at St. Germain Apartments.
The United Methodist Elder Care Communities are designed to provide each resident with the living environment and level of care that best suits individual needs. Our affordable services offer flexibility and stability while maximizing independence to provide a sense of security and confidence for seniors.
