Everything we do and everything we stand for is based on a sincere desire to create transformative experiences and enhance a sense of purpose and meaning in the lives of those we serve — wherever they call home.
Guided by Christian compassion, WesleyLife supports the independence, health, and well-being of older adults wherever they call home. That mission drives our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of continued growth, experience, engagement, and meaning, regardless of physical, social, or economic circumstances.
Our comprehensive network of services is designed to fulfill the wishes of older adults to remain independent and active wherever they choose to live. Because we have a vision of transforming the aging experience, we focus not on limitations, but on possibilities.
WesleyLife is driven by a set of principles based on the words of John Wesley, founder of the United Methodist Church:
“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
At WesleyLife, we live our values in every decision we make. They guide our mission and help illuminate our purpose.
To provide superior service and high standards – which have always defined WesleyLife's distinctive reputation. To be the best we can, WesleyLife encourages new ideas, the freedom to be creative and the open expression of thoughts.
To continually strive to create a home in the truest sense – where the spirit of friendship, support and genuine respect among residents, families and staff runs deep. We value the contributions of all individuals and do everything possible to help one another grow and contribute.
To make a difference in lives by comforting, listening and treating everyone with sincerity and admiration. We promote independence, provide choices and work to make every day a special day for our residents.
To value and demonstrate honesty, ethics and fairness in everything we say and do.
To have a faithful responsibility to our residents, families, staff and community, and diligently use the resources with which we have been entrusted.
At WesleyLife, we focus on potential, not limitations, and on embracing the power of health and well-being.
We deliver superior services in a warm, friendly and compassionate manner by keeping our focus on what’s really important — the way in which our residents and clients wish to live.
We create quality that exceeds investment (i.e., money, time, energy, faith in us).
We honor our deeply rooted Christian values that form the fabric of our heritage. They have guided our organization since its inception, influencing every decision we’ve ever made.
On July 1, 2019, WesleyLife and Genesis Health System of Davenport, Iowa, formed a partnership that created WellSpire, a new kind of senior living for the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois. Our shared vision focused on health and well-being and a person-centered model of care, with a goal of building on the quality care and services for which Genesis already was known.

“Through our partnership with Genesis Health, we’re focused on a common mission to pave the way for people 55 and older to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives that focus on purpose and well-being.”
There are four WellSpire communities in the Quad Cities' area:
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, WesleyLife is governed by an all-volunteer board of directors. Since 1947, the board has led the growth of WesleyLife from a single retirement community to a comprehensive continuum of health and well-being services and initiatives for older adults, wherever they call home. Drawing upon both life experience and areas of professional expertise, board members provide oversight for the entire organization and define the ways WesleyLife lives its mission.
