It is a nice place. They treat my loved ones nicely. They don't have transportation for the residents to get to appointments. The food is good and because they are gaining weight. We asked if they wanted us to bring them food, and they said no we have enough food from the community. The staff is very friendly. This community is a little expensive. The community provides laundry service and medication distribution, they even come in and assist with bathing, if needed.
My Aunt moved in about 2 months ago, she likes Wesley very much. Enjoys the activities, keep her young, even at 92. Feels very secure and appreciates the staff being so nice and pleasant all the time. Enjoys meeting new people and not being alone can always go to the gathering place or dining room to meet up with her new friends. Thanks to [names removed] and all the staff who take the time to be nice to her even everyone at the front desk always so nice, it is very much appreciated.
This was the best choice for us since my son is only staying for 3 weeks. Service and all personal are great. Room is spacious for wheelchair but bathroom is too small to get to shower from it. It also has a vanity sink which does not suffice a wheelchair bound person. So far a good experience.
We liked the overall size of the community and the studio was bigger than others we toured. Large private bathrooms in every apartment. It's only been a few days since my fil moved in however, he is very happy. That makes happy.

We are glad to hear that your father in law's move in went smoothly and that he is doing well at Wesley Enhanced Living Burholme! Please let us know if there any thing we can do to further assist in his transition.
The person that helped us in the beginning was very easy to work with. They were very helpful and answered all of our questions. The staff I have worked with have been very friendly and willing to help. Most of the time the food is good and they do offer different choices. This community is close to family and I would recommend it.

Thank you for your feedback! We are always happy to hear of satisfied residents and families!
My mom moved to WEL-Burholme in October. She is a widow and has been living in her home alone for 5 years. Since moving to WEL-Burholme the change in her has been astounding. She is very well taken care of. It has taken a good bit of worry off our minds (both hers and mine). The staff makes sure that she takes her medication in the right doses and at the correct time. Her apartment is quite spacious and is kept immaculate by the cleaning staff. If any repairs need to be made the maintenance staff is very prompt in answering her needs. There is always some activity going on that she can participate in. There is never time for her to be lonely, because someone is always around, whether it be staff or residents. If I need to talk to someone about anything they are very good at getting back to me in a timely manner. I would recommend WEL-Burholme to anyone looking for a place for their parent.
This community was just fine and I enjoyed the tour. The residents that we saw were smiling and seemed genuinely happy. The people that gave us the tour were pleasant and very helpful. Mom and dad just did not like the apartment.
Everything is great here. We're very happy with the services they provide. My mom does not participate in any activities because she is deaf.
