(From left to right: Dena Hill, Martha Steele,staff member Shannon Sansom, Beverly Bendall, Mary Lee Florschuetz, and Esther Gooderl.)Community comes from within. It can’t be imported,delivered or purchased. It is something we createtogether. And, every community is unique because of theindividuals who belong to it, the qualities they bring, therelationships they develop and the values that are shared. AtWesleyan Homes, one of the characteristics of our community is the spirit of concern and caring that comes fromthose who live and work here. It is not uncommon to hearresidents describe one another and the staff as neighbors orfamily.Perhaps no one is in a better position to observe the uniquequalities of the Wesleyan community than the irrepressibleMichelle Munk, Life Enrichment Director at The Wesleyanat Estrella Independent Living. She brings a commitment toresidents along with fun and energy and those qualities arecatching. She is also an award-winner for creating a multifaceted wellness program that has garnered nationalattention.With obvious pride, Michelle stated, “Wellness is one of ourcore values and at least 80% of our residents enjoy takingpart in our activities. We have four classes a day includingbalance, yoga, and chair aerobics and we have around sixtypeople participating daily. That’s important because theseregular interactions contribute to a strong sense of community.“From the first day residents arrive, the Welcome Committee does a great job in making them feel at home. We get toknow new residents while they are on the waiting list andhave a good idea of their interests before they move in. Wework with the Welcome Committee to make sure that eachnew resident is matched with someone who shares something in common, can introduce them to others and sit withthem in the dining room for the first day or two. That mayseem like a little thing, but it makes a big difference.“We have so many activities for residents to choose from –from eating out, going to theatre productions or concerts,shopping excursions or just a drive to see the bluebonnets inbloom. Whatever the destination, we are building community through shared experiences. But some of the bestcommunity building comes from casual conversations in thelobby or during a meal.“With the new addition at The Wesleyan at Estrella Independent Living, we’ll have even more common community2

spaces to offer: an expanded fitness center, swimming pool,a café, crafts center and a large activity room that will holdall the residents for entertainment, lectures and specialevents. Recently, we had a theatrical performance directedby two women who moved here from Sun City where theywere actresses in the local community theater. They are talented actresses and write and direct plays, too. Their recentperformance was such a success that they took it ‘on theroad’ and performed for the residents at Assisted Living,too.”“Any of us who are having struggles might get a card fromhalf the people who live here. We all sign cards to help support people who are sick or grieving or struggling. In ourworship time on Wednesday nights, we pray for whoever issick or in the hospital. It’s a very caring place.”Anita Nelson stated, “The most important thing about living here is that we care about and love each other. People sayto me, ‘How do you like it there?’ And I say, ‘How wouldyou like to be surrounded by 140 people who care aboutyou?’ I don’t think there’s a person here who is not cared for.There is no better way to understand the sense of commu- The other day someone stuck their head in the door of mynity than to share a meal with a group of Wesleyan Homes room and said, ‘We prayed for you tonight.’ I’d been a littleresidents.
