Retirement Community

Altenheim Retirement Community has been a presence in Wheeling since 1891.  We now offer stylish housing for independent men, women and couples who are 65 years of age and older.  Eight free-standing cottages are rented on a monthly basis and are equipped with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer. Amenities include lawn care, snow removal, general maintenance, meals, activities, and more!  Rent does not include utilities.  There is no admission fee.

We have an active community!  Dinners out, movies, special meals in summer and on holidays are just some of the events scheduled for retirement community residents!

Contact our Executive Director for more information or to apply!

Senior/Caregiver Resources & Referral Services

We have our Fall Program Schedule set up!  Check our CALENDAR for scheduled programs which are free and open to all who are interested.


Jerry Townsend Elder Law Attorney will present Long Term Care Planning on September 30 from 9am - 12noon.  What are "must have" documents?  What do Medicare and Medicaid cover in long term care?  What are financial guidelines for Medicaid?  Did you know that there is a 5 year look-back on transfers of assets for nursing home Medicaid?  How can we be proactive with our resources?  Jerry has presented programs for consumers for several years and also offers workshops for his professional peers.  He is a partner with Fluharty and Townsend in Parkersburg WV.  Join us for this informative program!  This program will be held at Wheeling Park's Trophy Room in the Stone Building.  Reservations are required by September 27 and seating is limited to 25.

Call us at 304 243-0996, email me at or send an email through our website to reserve your seat.  Programs are face-to-face (not web-based) and there are no continuing education credits for these programs.  Certificates will be provided upon request.


CAN WE HELP YOU?  Do you need to know what services you can consider to help a loved one remain independent?  Perhaps you need some help.  Do you need information on dementia?  Contact us!  We'll discuss your situation and your needs - free and confidential!

We are working on the program schedule for the remainder of 2016!  Check out our calendar and add our events to your list!

LET US BE YOUR GATEWAY TO SENIOR CARE!  Finding assistance for our aging family members or for ourselves can be challenging.  There are many services to meet needs and to provide information but sometimes the choices add to the confusion.  Let us help!

Altenheim Resource & Referral Services has been a division of Altenheim since 1995, providing assistance to seniors and caregivers without regard to income or location. We receive no federal, state or local funding, and offer unbiased information on services and aging issues for those needing help.  Free services include assessment, resource information, and free personal enrichment programs for all who want to learn.

Workshops with continuing education credit are offered for social workers and nurses. Free Personal Enrichment programs are offered on a variety of topics and are open to all who are interested. (Contact us with program suggestions!)  We will also come to you to do presentations on aging, caregiving or on our Altenheim Retirement Community at no charge, and your group's size doesn't matter!  

Seniors, family caregivers, and professional caregivers are encouraged to contact us for information on service options, available resources, and caregiving concerns. We can help you with the aging and caregiving journey.

Altenheim Resource & Referral Service's (ARRS) Events and Programs section lists upcoming programs with Resource Services programs listed in CAPS.
