Wesley Village received the Milestone Award at the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce annual breakfast and awards celebration on Dec. 21.

The award-winning independent and assisted living community was honored for their 50 years of caring for seniors in the Shelton area. The ceremony took place at Oronoque Country Club in Stratford.

During the event, Chamber President, Bill Purcell recognized Valley organizations for their contributions to the community, outstanding achievements and milestones.

“We’re happy and grateful to be recognized by the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce,” said Dave Lawlor, UMH CEO. “We have grown with the community and with their help and support, we will continue to thrive and build nurturing environments based on caring relationships for residents in Shelton.”

Over the past 50 years, Wesley Village has grown from a single Nursing Home facility to a comprehensive senior living campus offering short and long term skilled nursing, independent and assisted living, increased care needs and memory support, and outpatient therapy and fitness programs.
