I have had a loved one living independently at Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line, formerly Martins Run, for over 10 years and her experience there is that it is simply home, where she fits in and belongs. She has found the staff responsive and caring as have I. Courses in writing and drawing, as well as movies, lectures, and live entertainment, are part of programming as are gardening, a book club, and the opportunity to participate in governance. The outside campus, beautifully maintained, offers areas where people may walk and sit or engage in planting. There are expansive open areas and those with shade. Four eating facilities vary the offerings according to what residents want to eat. Skilled nursing care is available and there is a memory unit and a hospital unit. When one member of a couple needs additional care and housing, there is the opportunity for the other family member to spend time as needed with his or her loved one. What impresses me most is that staff really care about residents and are courteous, warm, flexible and kind without exception. Of importance is that the population comes from different cultural backgrounds and brings diverse life and educational experiences, so people learn from each other and take joy in learning about each other’s life-related customs. What I see whenever I visit is the friendliness and kindness of the residents toward one another and feelings of good will between residents and staff. What I also see is an interest in learning and being able to move outside one’s usual comfort zone. Wesley is just beginning to emerge from the worst health epidemic in the United States since the 1918 influenza. The track record for saving people from getting Covid-19 has been dramatic as has been the markedly tiny death rate. Those in independent living are being vaccinated now in February 2021. It also has just had a major reconstruction intended to provide more public spaces with additional light streaming in the central part of the facility, all for the better! I am impressed with what the director, Mike DeStefon and staff are doing to make Wesley Main Line a model community. It truly is a wonderful, welcoming place and I encourage those looking into residential living to seriously consider Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line. Thankfully, Wesley is here. And Bravo!
