Executive Director COVID-19 update 1/28/2021

Dear Residents, Families and Staff,

Vaccine Clinic Update

I am writing with an update on our CVS COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic this weekend.

CVS has consolidated our clinic into 1 day, Saturday January 30th 11am – 5pm.

Because 2 clinic days merged into one clinic day, our plan is to vaccinate the entire campus on Saturday January 30th; this includes all residents and all staff who require the first round of vaccination.  It will be a very busy and exciting day! 

Members of the leadership team and our wonderful staff will be on site to facilitate a smooth running clinic.  It is important that residents follow the guidance provided on the reverse side of this letter so that we can efficiently vaccinate everyone on Saturday.   I am very appreciative of the CVS team who will be on site on the 30th.  These pharmacists and technicians are working tirelessly, some 7 days a week, to bring the vaccine to our communities. 

In order to be vaccinated on Saturday January 30th, you will need to complete a consent form (we will have them available at the clinic if you did not complete and return in advance) and you will need to bring your most recent Medicare and insurance cards with you. You also must be available to receive the 2nd dose on Saturday February 20, 2021.  If you are declining the vaccine please notify Alison Schneck at 267-895-1185.

We will be hosting the Clinic in Heritage Hall.  Specific instructions are included in the following pages. Please dress appropriately; a short sleeve shirt is best so that the pharmacist can easily access your arm. Plan on which arm you wish to receive the vaccine.  If you choose to wear a sweater or long sleeve clothing, please be sure it has buttons or a zipper and can easily be removed.  We also suggest notifying your doctor that you will be receiving the vaccine so they are aware in the event you experience side effects. Additional information about side effects is included in the following pages.

For residents currently off campus, you will be contacted by a member of our team confirming a time slot later in the afternoon on January 30th for your vaccine. If you are not contacted by noon on Friday, please contact the receptionist at 215-345-4300.

Note all current protocols on campus will continue until the majority of the campus is fully vaccinated.  New information will come out after February 20th. We are anticipating a calm, well organized vaccination clinic.  Please be patient and follow the provided instructions.  This is yet another step in the right direction!  We hope you all can rest a little easier tonight. 

Warmly,

Maureen & the WEL Doylestown Team

What to Expect after Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine

Updated Jan. 11, 2021 www.cdc.org

COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you from getting COVID-19. You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.

Common side effects

  • Pain and/or swelling on the arm where you got the shot
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Tiredness
  • Headache

Helpful tips

If you have pain or discomfort, talk to your doctor about taking an over-the-counter medicine, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

To reduce pain and discomfort where you got the shot:

  • Apply a clean, cool, wet washcloth over the area.
  • Use or exercise your arm.

To reduce discomfort from fever:

  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Dress lightly.

When to call the doctor

In most cases, discomfort from fever or pain is normal. Contact your doctor or healthcare provider:

  • If the redness or tenderness where you got the shot increases after 24 hours
  • If your side effects are worrying you or do not seem to be going away after a few days

Remember

  • Side effects may feel like flu and even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
  • With most COVID-19 vaccines, you will need 2 shots in order for them to work. Get the second shot even if you have side effects after the first shot, unless a vaccination provider or your doctor tells you not to get a second shot.
  • It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require 2 shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot.
  • Please continue to wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands

Testimonials

  • I am the daughter of a previous resident who went home to heaven in October of 2021. She was on the 3rd floor with the blessing of Kathy and her devoted workers as her caretakers. They always made me feel at home and confident my Mom was in good care. Patrick made it a easy transition and always was available to answer any questions. And Ms. Jeanette was my favorite desk clerk. I truly knew the favor of God was with us in choosing STAPELEY.

  • What a pity I am limited by these five stars but that’s life. If I could add extra stars I could cite not only good words about the food or the housekeeping but about the community itself. I have never been part of a group that was so concerned about each of its members and how that one member relates to the others. In theory that should work out pretty often but how rarely does it? And in a world in which almost any pains are happily taken to assure our creature comforts. You have to be here to understand this but it is very real. I am made to feel comfortable even if I have asked a dumb question or spilled ravioli on the carpet. I’m home here.

  • Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line was very nice. It was in a neighborhood. So, it wasn’t isolated or in a bunch of business complexes. They had a pool, a nice gym, a lot of classes, an art studio with pottery and a kiln, and a big library. I had lunch there. It was in the bistro and I could pick what I wanted. I had a sandwich and it was very good. The outside areas were also beautiful. It was very nicely kept and maintained.

  • The process to transition my Dad here has been one that has left me feeling confident in our decision. The staff has answered any questions we had and made us feel at home in this new place. I look forward to my Dad enjoying his time here.

  • Wesley Enhanced Living Doylestown was a great place. It seemed like they had everything that my parents needed. We visited independent living and assisted living. The staff was very nice, very helpful, and very welcoming. They had a salon, a big library, a pool, and a rooftop deck, which I thought was awesome. They had a restaurant area that had a pizza oven and you could get all sorts of sandwiches and hamburgers. They had a movie theater watching area that we thought was pretty nice. They had a lot of things that were very nice there. When we were touring, there was a group of employees having lunch in an area where they do arts and crafts and stuff. Everybody was super nice, friendly, and welcoming. We were interfering in their lunch, but they were super nice. They explained a couple of things to us and answered questions.

  • Wow! What a warm and welcoming experience we had at Wesley Enhanced Living in Upper Moreland!! Jackie (sales) was so very caring and supportive with assisting in the transition of our aunt from a house to a new “home” in a very, very short period of time. Her compassion, knowledge, and guidance helped make the move a breeze. During our initial visit, we were all encouraged and impressed with the staff’s interaction with the residents as we observed the staff address them by name as well as engage in resident-specific conversations. The staff’s ability to network with residents came to light again as they both continue to work together and coordinate meeting for meals and events to help our shy newcomer “break the ice” and meet the community. Wesley has so much to offer with a wide variety of monthly activities both on and off site, a Pub/Bistro, cozy fireplace/sitting areas, library, movie theater, chapel, exercise room, covered porch, sun room, and the beautiful, bright, spacious apartments that are nicely equipped with appliances and more. Our family feels very fortunate that we were able to have our aunt become a part of the Wesley community where she can still maintain her independence, be socially active, and not be alone. We thank you.

  • There are really good activities here. There are different dining rooms here, and there is one dining room that is supposed to serve very delicious food, and something similar to a 5 course meal.

  • The facility is attractive from the outside- it has seasonal flowers and plants with several areas for people to sit or walk outside. It is clean- the staff are helpful if I have questions when I visit. My mother likes it there and says that the food is good.

  • We chose Wesley Enhanced Living because it was referred to dad by some of his former classmates who had good experiences here. It is a light and airy atmosphere, everyone seems very happy and upbeat. They have different levels of care, independent and assisted living. His apartment size is perfect for him and what he needs. The facility does accept Medicaid as well. I would absolutely recommend to others looking.

  • After two visits and the excellent service we received from Sharon Margulies, we were so impressed with what we saw and most importantly with the people that we submitted our application to today and look forward to signing a contract in December. Sharon has been so helpful in answering all the questions we had from all our family members. If you are looking for a place, please check them out. They have open houses that make a great first visit that you follow up with another more personal one if needed.

  • The staff are stretched really thin; however, the moral is still high. They keep a good atmosphere for the residents. The community has a lot of interesting people. The building is beautiful and is full of sunlight.

  • Our family can’t say enough good things about Wesley Enhanced Living. My mom and Dad needing to move, we went everywhere in a 10 mile radius so that we could be close to them. Most of the places were either over priced or just plain horrible. We called Jackie at Wesley and she met with us the next day! It is a beautiful space with lots of light and the staff and residents are so friendly! To top the excellent experience my parents moved in in March 2020, yes during COVID, Wesley was so careful and well prepared. My parents of course had to be quarantined, but they never felt like it, the staff took care of everything from bringing them their delicious meals everyday to even taking out their trash. My parents have now been at Wesley Willow Grove/Hatboro for 6 months now, the community is still COVID free and my parents have never looked better. They are so happy and finally relaxed. Their long time neighbor from the house even moved into Wesley as well and is loving it. Thank you Wesley for all you do!

  • We chose Wesley Enhanced Living because of the value of the money as well as the convenient location. The staff were so friendly on the tour and that has carried through to this day. The apartment sizes are very good. I think they really pay close attention to the residents and their needs. I would recommend to others looking.

  • My daughter and I went to Wesley Enhanced Living at Stapeley. I thought Wesley Enhanced Living was beautiful. The room they showed me was wonderful. It was really big. It had a whole side of windows that looked down on a garden and from there you could see the traffic on the street. I thought that was very good, plus the fact that it was a fifteen to twenty minute drive to where I live. The building and the grounds were just beautiful. The room we had signed up to take was right next to a sun porch, right across the hall from the elevator, which you have to take to go to the dining room. The dining room is beautiful. It had windows all over the place.

  • Wesley Enhanced Living is so lovely, our loved one is enjoying everything about it especially the socialization. Her apartment is very roomy, it is a large one bedroom with a patio. Also she loves the ease of getting around and the ability to walk. She is getting all the attention she should be getting, always being checked on and always made comfortable.

  • We have been here for a few months and it really is a terrific place. They have cottages you can live in, or apartments in the main building. We chose to live in the cottages. There are 38 cottages which is terrific. They are attached to another person’s cottage at one point in the room, almost like a duplex, but you cannot hear them. The bedrooms are all carpeted, everything else is vinyl flooring which is really pretty and nice. The monthly price is very reasonable, we only have to pay for electricity and they pay for water. They also take care of everything, anytime something breaks they come to fix it or they replace it. The cottages also come with a garage, and somewhat of a driveway so one car can park in the garage and the other behind the car. The garages are also very wide and very deep, its like no other garage you have ever seen. The cottages also have very nice patios, they are about 8X10, and you can extend it for an additional fee. You can also put an awning out there if you want. It is surrounded by a lot of trees which is really pretty. This community is much cheaper than others in the area. The cottages also have a front porch, which helps us meet people outside and we can sit outside and mingle. This community has an upscale feeling to it, they recently got their liquor license, so they have a bar and a nice bartender and a new restaurant. They do have nursing care here, but we are not sure of the extent of that care since it is more independent living. Also the physical therapist and occupational therapist that comes are absolutely amazing.

  • I toured this facility and found it to be a top notch caring place. The apartments were very efficient and space conscious. Washer and dryer in each apartment with the capability of using a laundry room at no charge I might add. The hallways and group areas were very clean and updated on a regular basis. I also found it to be more affordable than other CCRC facilities. The activity calendar was full of events for all levels of interest. I think the location is quite good. Near shopping and grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. The staff seems to know all the residents by name. I was very impressed with the whole organization.

  • Wesley Enhanced Living Upper Moreland has been very good to my mom. Her room is very nice, with a living room and a bedroom, it’s well laid out too. The staff is very nice and the food is very good. I think the value for the money is pretty good too. The outdoors has little houses or little apartments if you’re not in assisted living or receiving personal care. They also keep those very nice.

  • I toured Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line about a year and a half ago. They’ve recently done a lot of renovations and refurbishing up there. I liked the fact that it was so close to all of my doctors and a couple of hospitals and shopping facilities. They had little shuttle buses that took you to various shopping centers and grocery stores. I just liked the layout of the area, the overall activities, the apartments that they had, and the floor plans. I was introduced to several staff. I felt as though they cared about you as a person. I was just impressed with the place. We had lunch there and it was excellent food. I’m a vegetarian so I can’t talk too much about meat, fish, chicken, or whatever, but I told them of my dietary preferences and they accommodated me completely. It’s absolutely beautiful. They just finished renovations and it is gorgeous. I have a family member in Wesley and I was just up there last Sunday, so I’m pretty familiar with the place now. The upkeep is beautiful. The grounds and the inside are just lovely.
