Executive Director COVID-19 update 01/18/2021

Dear Residents, Families and Staff,

Skilled Nursing

I am sorry to share that we identified a staff member in skilled nursing who tested positive during rapid surveillance testing at the end of last week. We received lab confirmation over the weekend that the person is positive for COVID-19. We have tested all residents, we are awaiting results and we are monitoring for signs and symptoms.

One case is considered an outbreak so the nursing home has now moved to a Red Phase. This means no communal dining nor activities through January 28th. We continue with window visits and face time visits. We will communicate resident results as soon as we receive them.  Please keep our staff and residents in skilled in your thoughts and prayers. We wish our employee a speedy recovery.

COVID-19 Vaccination

Based on communication on with CVS on Friday January 18th it is likely that we will not have any additional COVID-19 vaccine on site for our Clinic on Wednesday January 20th; CVS may only bring enough for residents and staff who received the first vaccine on December 30th.  This means no new vaccination, only booster shots.  If this changes, I will share the information as quickly as possible.

We are still confirmed for our Clinics for Personal Care residents on January 30th and 31st

Best regards,

Maureen

COVID-19 Vaccine Update

We’re pleased to announce that COVID-19 vaccinations are underway at our Wesley Enhanced Living communities.  Working through our pharmacy partner, CVS, employees and residents at the skilled nursing level of care will be the first to receive their vaccines, with independent living and personal care residents to follow.  Some communities have already received their first dose!

We continue to follow strict safety protocols outlined in previous communications (scroll down), which we will adhere to as long as necessary to ensure the health and well-being of our residents and employees.

Please contact the sales and admissions staff at the community of your choice with guidelines related to a specific location.

Reflections on 2020 and What Seniors Can Look Forward to in 2021

The year 2020 may become synonymous with the word infamy. One little germ caused the world to come to a halt. Washing our hands became an obsession while we struggled to figure out what 'normal' would look like in light of the pandemic. Soon, face masks were fashionable, and the grocery store clerk needed a superhero cape. We can learn many lessons or observations from this past year that can apply to the New Year, and seniors are leading the charge in resiliency and positivity.
