Wesley Enhanced Living To Restart Informational Tours for Delaware County Residents – with Added Safety Protections

Warminster, Pa. (July 9, 2020) – Through July, Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) communities are beginning to once again offer informational open house sessions for local seniors and families interested in exploring the benefits of a senior living community. And these tours will align with CDC recommended safety protocols.

“Now more than ever, we recognize the need to protect the residents in our care while welcoming new members to our community,” says Shelley Ballet, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “Even during these challenging times, we take great pride in doing everything we can to promote wellness – both physically, emotionally and spiritually – among our residents and staff.”

Amenities at the WEL Main Line community in Delaware County have been recently updated to better serve and accommodate senior residents.

At WEL Main Line, renovations have improved infrastructure in various areas throughout the community, including:

  • updated grand entrance;
  • addition of a pub area with new menu options;
  • redesigned dining and living rooms; and
  • improved Personal Care and Skilled Nursing area.

If you or a loved one is interested in learning more about living at a WEL community, please call (610) 615-8353 (WEL Main Line) to reserve your spot for an open house. *No walk-in appointments will be accepted.*

WEL Main Line Open House Dates:

  • Wednesday, July 15: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 22: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 29: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

These tours will be modified to protect the health of current residents, and will include temperature checks, social distancing and the use of appropriate PPE.

I have been a resident in independent living at Wesley Main Line for 7 years. The Superheroes originated here. I can attest to their dedication, skill and creativity, regardless of the many challenges they constantly face. I feel so fortunate to live where I feel safe and well cared for. We are just the opposite of the media image of elderly abuse.

Updates Regarding COVID Testing and Visitations: 06-30-2020

There is no question that we are living in strange and very stressful times as we are all trying to navigate our way through this global pandemic.  Pennsylvania in particular has set specific orders and guidance for long term care facilities to help us get through with resident safety at the top of its priorities.  In light of recent communications we have received from the Department of Human Services, our regulatory agency, I feel it’s important to send an update out to all of you.

Universal Testing:

On Friday June 26th 2020, we received an order from the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health stating we are now required to conduct baseline COVID testing on all residents and staff of personal care facilities.  Testing must be completed by August 31st 2020.  We have already been in communications with CVS health to assist us in facilitating testing and we have scheduled July 9th as a testing day here at WEL Doylestown.  All testing will be conducted on site by a CVS representative.  Any resident who has been tested on or after June 12th will not need to be retested.  There will be no out of pocket costs for residents or staff who are tested.

Visitation Guidelines:

In recent days, particularly when Governor Wolf announced that Bucks County would move into the green phase on July 26th, the staff at WEL Doylestown received an overwhelming amount of phone calls from friends and families requesting in person visitations.  Unfortunately, we are not able to assist with expediting in person visits at this time.  We do, however, have a plan with clear guidance from the Department of Health, for reopening in the near future.  The first step of the reopening plan is the start and completion of baseline testing.  Once that is completed, we will move into a monitoring phase.  This phase will last 14 days, if all test results are negative and we continue with no new COVID cases in personal care.  After we are case-free for 14 days, we can begin in person visits.  We will have set times and guidelines for the visitations, for example, masks, screenings, and set locations.  If you would like to schedule a face time meeting with your loved one prior to reopening, please contact the personal care activities staff to assist you.

We have worked extremely hard to protect the residents from this terrible illness, and we will continue to move forward to reopening in the safest way possible.  While we understand the hardship you are enduring by being separated from your loved ones, we ask that you continue to exercise patience as we work to move through our reopening plans.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

If you have further questions, please contact me at 267-895-1146 or at mminninger@WEL.org.

Power Outage Update: 06-28-2020

Good afternoon Upper Moreland Residents and Families,

Last night we experienced a Brown Out for a few hours on campus.  This means that we only had partial power on the campus.  Bob Snyder and I worked with PECO to expedite the fix. Bob and his team was on site to ensure residents who have medical equipment had the power they needed. PECO determined it was a fuse on an outside pole and power was restored at approximately 12:30am.

This morning it came to our attention that there was an Air Conditioning problem on campus.  Bob and his team came on site again.  It has been determined that no resident apartments have air conditioning.

It is likely that this issue was caused by the Power Issue last night and we will not have a quick fix.  Bob’s team remains on site working to resolve the issue with outside vendors.

Residents are encouraged to use fans, drink water frequently and come to the lobby to enjoy the cool air as that space still has Air Conditioning.

Again, it is unlikely that the Air Conditioning will be restored today and we will continue working until it is fixed.  As soon as I have an update, I will share it with you.
