Our Methodist Heritage
Our historic connection with the Methodist church began in 1945 when the Methodist Home, operated by the Norwegian-Danish Conference, and the Harriet Walker Maternity Hospital merged to become Walker Methodist. At all our communities, Walker Methodist is led by the power of the Christian spirit and in particular in accordance with the concepts of the general ministry of all believers. Walker Methodist is deemed by the United Methodist Conference as an “Advanced Special Giving Mission,” a place where the Methodist Church can fulfill its own mission for caring for seniors.
Your Safe Place
Spiritual care assists residents in tapping into what gives them meaning, including religious beliefs and practices but is not limited to this. A person’s spirituality is a deep, inner resource from which to draw from, especially during times of challenge and transition. Spiritual care can offer a sense of calm, hope, and healing to older adults. Chaplaincy programs allow the expression of grief and loss and create a safe place for feelings to be released.
