WEL Urgent Information

Updated statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Written by Wesley Enhanced Living on November 19, 2020.

In light of the surge in cases now occurring throughout Philadelphia, Montgomery, Bucks, and Delaware counties, Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) has begun to reinstate restrictions and protocols throughout our communities so that we can continue to mitigate the spread of illness amongst our residents and employees.

Each WEL community is responding to updated regulations as they relate to visitation, activities, dining, housekeeping, transportation, religious and salon services.  Executive Directors at each community are sending out regular updates with specific information regarding changes in processes and procedures.  For more information and questions about a specific WEL community, please contact the community sales and admissions managers at the community of your choice here.

All WEL communities continue to rigorously follow these safety protocols:

  • Social distancing and masks remain a requirement for all residents and employees in common areas of all buildings.  All employees, residents, and outside individuals who are necessary to enter and re-enter a community, are required to go through the multi-step screening process before gaining access to any of our communities and will be given only limited access to necessary areas of the buildings. These measures include a temperature check and detailed questionnaire.  
  • Strict sanitizing protocols remain in place, including but not limited to utilization of fogger disinfectant equipment and repeated cleaning of high touch surfaces with FDA approved, hospital grade antimicrobial products. Residential living residents were provided a “clean key,” which can be used to help avoid contact with high touch surfaces.
  • All employees will continue to be required to follow CDC guidelines to help stop the spread of illness, including these vital additional measures: frequent handwashing, using hand sanitizer, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, staying home if you are sick, and avoiding contact with others who are sick. We continue to use the WEL Employee COVID Exposure Guideline Tool that directs employees as to actions they must take based on asymptomatic, symptomatic, and exposure outcomes. This includes direction when not to come to work, return to work criteria, and added precautions to follow when they return to work.

Thank you for all your support, cooperation and understanding as we navigate through this transition.

Updated statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

While Pennsylvania is currently in the “green” phase of reopening, Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) continues to carefully follow protocols to modify restrictions for independent living, personal care and skilled nursing residents, while carefully considering the health, safety and well-being of our residents and employees.

We are pleased to report that WEL has been essentially COVID-free since early June – both residents and employees – experiencing only an occasional single isolated case here and there.

  • Carefully thought out visitation plans have been put in place across all communities and care levels, under specific guidelines, which vary by community. We will continue to allow restricted visitation as long as necessary. 
  • Socially distanced activities, religious and salon services, and dining, as well as transportation and housekeeping, are continuing in all communities, and vary based on community location.  Executive Directors continue to send out regular updates with information regarding changes in processes and procedures.

Updated Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updated 7/13/2020

As Pennsylvania enters the “green” phase of reopening in June and July, Wesley Enhanced Living is also putting new protocols in place to modify restrictions for residential living (independent living) and personal care residents, while carefully considering the health, safety and well-being of our residents and employees.

  • Throughout the month of June and July all WEL communities will be continuing to implement varying plans to modify restrictions in the following areas for independent living residents: excursions off the campus, family visitation, transportation, communal dining, salon services, group activities, religious services and housekeeping.  Specific details will vary by community, and will be communicated by the Executive Director in separate communications. Some modifications to restrictions in personal care will also be phased in, but will also vary by community.
  • The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) is following the CDC recommendations to adhere to all restrictions for Skilled Nursing Facilities that were put in place at the onset of the pandemic. Per these guidelines, there is still a no-visitation policy in effect in all WEL Skilled Nursing Facilities. These restrictions will likely remain in effect until 28 days following a “green” phase in the counties within which we operate.
  • Social distancing and masks remain a requirement for all residents and employees in common areas of the building.  All employees, residents, and outside individuals who are necessary to enter and re-enter a community, are required to go through the multi-step screening process before gaining access to any of our communities and will be given only limited access to necessary areas of the buildings. These measures include a temperature check and detailed questionnaire.

Message from Jeff Petty, CEO of Wesley Enhanced Living

To the WEL Family:

The past three months have been extraordinarily stressful for everyone at Wesley Enhanced Living. Just as it seemed as though the our lives were beginning to stabilize somewhat from the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, the country has been shook to its core by the events in Minneapolis and the murder of George Floyd.

It is simply not possible for anyone to watch that video and not recoil, and realize what happened to Mr. Floyd could happen to anyone. But, the condemning reality is that absolutely no one is surprised that it happened to yet another black man in our country - and it is long past time to confront ourselves that we are aware of and have accepted the racism in society that permits these injustices, regularly and on an ongoing basis, throughout our entire history. People like me have accepted it and people not like me have paid the price of that acceptance in every aspect, large and small, of their lives.

This country was founded on the principal that “all men are created equal” – but the founding fathers didn’t mean it then – most people were left out of that equality then – and we still don’t mean it now. But we also stated our founding purpose in the first sentence of the Constitution “to form a more perfect union” – not a perfect one, and that phrase demands more of all of us all the time, right now, to do better. As the protests across the country have communicated so eloquently, ENOUGH! We can no longer accept this social injustice.

By ourselves, we cannot solve the greater systematic sins of society in America, but we can and must reject it within WEL. Ironically, we have gotten through the past 3 months by joining together and committing to each other – there is simply no excuse for denying or demeaning the value of each other…we know better. Everyone here is battle-tested and proven worthy.

WEL’s core value is to do the right thing. Sitting idly on the sidelines by saying to yourself “well, I am not a racist” is unacceptable. Paraphrasing the profound words of Eldridge Cleaver if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Be part of the solution…accept the obligation to make a difference – expect more of ourselves and each other, and don’t accept less. Do the right thing.
