COVID-19 and WesleyLife: Holiday Plans and Reopening Updates

WesleyLife and COVID: Holiday Plans, Reopening Updates

posted by Lisa Ryan on Friday, November 27, 2020

Man in mask As many of you know, a surge of new COVID cases in our state has delayed our plans to fully reopen our communities. We continue to look forward to welcoming family members and friends back to our campuses, and each community's Executive Director will continue to update residents and family members on plans for that particular location.

We continue to follow state and national guidance regarding reopening processes for senior living communities. As your Executive Directors have communicated, that guidance includes recommendations around holiday celebrations. Specific recommendations from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) around holiday gatherings can be found here.

Our priority continues to be keeping our campuses safe, and we are also mindful of the emotional well-being of all involved. If you have concerns about your loved one and/or questions about the reopening status of your loved one's community, please contact the Executive Director of that campus. 


Please note: Due to increased need for meal delivery among members of the Greater Des Moines community, we continue to seek additional volunteer drivers for WesleyLife Meals on Wheels. Read the details. 

How We Can Help You at Home

As always, through our WesleyLife at Home network of services, we offer assistance not just in our communities, but to older adults living in their houses or apartments, with relatives, or in other living arrangements. That assistance ranges from medical and non-medical home health care to hospice care, transportation, and Meals on Wheels.

Simply call Kelli or Irina at (515) 978-2777 to learn more, or to start services. And please be assured our caregivers continue to follow Centers for Disease Control recommendations regarding hygiene, health, and safety.
