Update for all WEL Main Line Residents and Staff– 4/9/2021

Due to the fact that we have had no new positives for 2 weeks and the positivity rate continues below 10% (it is 8.1% this week), we will return to testing asymptomatic residents monthly.

We had no new positives in the staff this past week.  We will continue to rapid test staff twice a week, out of an abundance of caution.

We continue to have no positives in the Pines. 

We have no positives in Independent Living.

Visitation continues for all levels indoor.  The Meadows visits were well received by the residents, and I am sure it was a welcome event for our visitors as well!

We have secured a local pharmacy to provide us with an ongoing supply of vaccine onsite and our first clinic will be April 21st.  In the meantime, we have also engaged in the county sites for appointments off site.  Delaware County has clinics at Aston Community Center and Delaware County Wellness Center for the Moderna vaccine, Penn Medicine at Radnor for the Pfizer vaccine, and Delaware County Community College for the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, for those who are still in need of an appointment.  This is not an exhaustive list, just the county sites.  Pennsylvania is now at 1B phase and will start 1C this coming Monday, followed closely with 2(which is everyone) April 19th.

Thank you all for your ongoing support!  Spring days ahead!

Welcome everyone!  It is a beautiful Spring, time for the renewal of spirit, life and enjoying outdoors.  We are happy to welcome all of you to visit with your family and friends both indoors and outdoors beginning Monday, April 12.  We will have indoor and outdoor visiting available.  We will have canopies up in the courtyard, and welcome outdoor visits – weather permitting.

Executive Director COVID-19 update 3/31/2021

Dear Residents, Families and Employees: 

We have another week with zero Residents or Employees testing positive here at Stapeley!  Visitation is going well and we are venturing ever so slowly towards normal.

For our Resident Family members of our Health Care Center Residents, we have added an additional location for visiting; our third floor conference room.  On warm days, you are also invited to visit with your loved one in our garden area.  Please continue to arrange your visits through our receptionists. 

CDC requires that I remind you that visiting is not without risk and you still need to take every precaution possible including wearing a mask, handwashing, and six-feet social distancing. 

On 3/30, you may have noticed a large crane in the Stapeley Hall parking lot.  It was here to install the new main chiller which will assist us in providing effective cooling for the building when summer heat hits.

Stay safe,

Ken Beiler

Executive Director, Wesley Enhanced Living at Stapeley

Update for all WEL Main Line Residents and Staff– 3/30/2021

We had no new positives with our staff over the weekend and no new ones with yesterday’s testing. 

We had no new positives with the Meadows residents with their weekly testing.

We continue to have no positives in the Pines. 

We have no positives in Independent Living. I again reviewed the vaccine percentages by state this morning and Pennsylvania is currently ranked 32rd.  The percentage is now 15.71%, up from 14.4% last Friday.  The number of fully vaccinated is now appx 2 million, up from 1.7 million last Friday.  There is another 1.5 million that are partially vaccinated.  If you add the partially vaccinated, the state percentage for those who have had at least one shot is appx 30%.  The total vaccine shots provided to date are now over 5 million.  The percentages are moving up a point or so daily and should continue to climb as we get more supply.
