Every day presents opportunities for our residents to stay active and boost their physical and mental health.
Socialization Brings a Sense of Community

This provides comfort in knowing people who are dealing with similar life issues and creates a strong sense of belonging in the community.
The social hub of the Wesley Community is the Embury Apartments, a Saratoga-based independent senior living community, and our Woodlawn Commons, which offers both independent and assisted living options for our seniors. Our active senior living community offers a robust daily schedule of enriching activities and social events to satisfy a variety of interests. Seniors enjoy everything from ice cream socials, exercise classes, and music to engaging lectures, and presentations.
All residents at Wesley can get together for a bite to eat at the Embury Café, which offers popular foods in a casual atmosphere, serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. It’s a great spot to meet friends, socialize, and get a nutritious meal.
Community Outings, Learning Opportunities Provide Life-Enrichment
Seniors who regularly engage in meaningful activities with other people tend to be happier, live longer, and have a strong sense of purpose. At The Wesley Community, every day presents new opportunities to engage with other seniors in the same stage of life. Our Saratoga senior living community provides a variety of exciting ways to learn new things on our campus and out in the local community.
Wesley’s events calendar is packed full of fun and varied activities for residents to explore. From gardening on the patio to taking part in our walking club, shopping and farmer’s market trips, outings to Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and engaging lectures at Woodlawn Commons.
