The affiliates of Asbury strive to honor their commitment to benevolent care in ways that do not jeopardize the economic stability of the overall community. Benevolent care can only be provided if gifts and operational revenue are sufficient.
There are minor variations of benevolent care policy at each affiliate, and those interested in learning more about benevolent care at a specific Asbury community should contact the administrator at that community for further details.
