We Celebrate Every Success
When it comes to articulating the full impact of WelseyLife, our residents and their loved ones say it best. We're proud to be a part of their journey toward joyful living and bright futures.
The team members went out of their way to welcome my father and make him feel his new apartment was a home, surrounded by 'family' who care about him.
Christi comes every other Friday, and I usually have a list of things with which I need assistance: getting groceries, putting groceries away, changing my sheets, and occasionally turning my mattress. She knows me so well that she can usually anticipate what I need before I even ask.
We are so appreciative of the wonderful care our mom receives in Wesley on Grand. Most team members treat Mom like she is their family member — what a testament to compassion!
I am so grateful for the skilled nursing care and therapy my husband received in Edgewater in West Des Moines. Because I was able to spend so much time with him there, I feel more prepared to assist him as he moves back home.
I was able to do things I could never have dreamed I could do. I went from being moved from bed to bed on a sheet to being able to stand in no time. The physical therapists were awesome and taught me different ways to do things, and those things were attainable and made me feel independent again.
I appreciate the team members' skills. They have realistic expectations for people with dementia, and they are able to balance my mother's needs with dignity.
No matter who you are — whether you need cooking or cleaning, whether you need help with pain, or you need assistance to eat right — WesleyLife has something that will help you. If you are wealthy, if you are poor, they can help you.
This is the best community to live in. I'm happy I chose to be here.
I loved the care I received. The team was friendly, caring, and helpful. Everything was super, and I really enjoyed it.
The simple fact that he was safe was such a blessing to me, and it was icing on the cake that he actually enjoyed his time there and participated in so many activities. I was able to hang on to my work, which was something that I needed for a sense of normalcy as well as income. It's much easier for a caregiver when you can hang on to some little bit of life outside of the house — and outside of the illness.
The people I care most about in this world are my family members. I have somewhere I can turn to for quality care for Jim. It's a wonderful, positive, rich way of life.
In any intergenerational partnership, both groups benefit. As we grow older, sometimes we feel that we're not needed as much. These residents prove time and time again that they have so much to offer.
We deliver hundreds of meals a day, often to people who don't have family or close friends around to check on them. For those folks, Meals on Wheels is a lifeline. We train our drivers to go in and do a welfare check, and how to respond if there's a problem. Doug [the driver] did what he was trained to do, and as dehydrated as Byron [the Meals on Wheels recipient] had become, Doug most likely saved his life.
I would like to repeat how impressed I was with the staff, nurses, Erin, and PT staff. Everyone was so helpful and eager to make our stay as easy as possible.
It was such a blessing that she came. My dad lives alone, and was trying to get something in the kitchen, and had fallen into his walker — then landed on the floor. I wouldn’t have gotten there until later on that day, and who knows what shape he would have been in. I’ll always be grateful that the driver heard him and helped him.
Given that she has dealt with health issues for some time and I've been relatively healthy, she would always say, 'What are we doing to do if something should happen to you first?' That was her worst nightmare, and I'll tell you, I thought we were there this week. I had no idea what would become of her care. And now, here we are in this beautiful place.
The food was great!
If you haven't been widowed, this might be hard to understand, but you really miss having someone to do things with — even just go out to eat with. It helped being at Halcyon House, as many people had gone through the same thing.
This community is head and shoulders above the rest!
When I got to my mom's house, I felt a tremendous sense of relief when one of the paramedics told me that she was going to be okay. My next feeling was immense gratitude toward Steffan. The doctors said Mom would not have lasted much longer, so Steffan really did save her life.
I had the extreme pleasure of staying at the Brio after a 2-week stay at a local hospital. The staff was/were/are absolutely amazing! I was treated like royalty! I received the BEST care!
When Pam (nurse) noticed a decline in my health, she increased nursing visits to weekly to ensure my mental health and physical health were stable, as losing my husband of 60 years has been really hard on me and my family. My family and I are truly grateful for WesleyLife and the services they provide.
My 93-year-old grandmother is being treated amazingly. The staff really cares about their patients.
Wonderful place to recover or stay, with friendly staff and excellent food!
Every day, there's always something fun happening, whether it's with team members or residents. We have a program that allows for tuition reimbursement. I was able to utilize that and am now pursuing my RN degree.
I don't mind getting older as long as I still feel young — and exercise keeps me that way. I started joining gyms when I retired, and here I am, living in a community with a beautiful fitness center.
For one thing, I would be a lot lonelier without them, and they are just wonderful ladies. I would recommend them to everyone. I can't imagine why someone who isn't related to me would care about me this much.
