Completion of first phase of renovations yields significant upgrades in accommodations for long-term care residents of The Wesley Community
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY; – The Wesley Community, a leading provider in housing and services for independent seniors and those requiring all levels of care, recently unveiled a series of enhancements and improvements to its Springs building.
The renovations to the fifth floor of the Springs building increase the amount of private rooms from four to seventeen. The redesigned floor includes an upgraded dining room, warm and inviting common spaces with gas fireplaces, new LED lights to make the space brighter, and an improved air circulation system that will increase resident comfort.
Resident rooms on the fifth floor have received a substantial upgrade as well. Each room now features an updated bathroom with shower, new furnishings, and a flat-screen television. Meals will now be delivered from a centralized kitchen that is also accessible to residents.
“We are excited about the impact that these enhancements will have on the lives of our residents,” said J. Brian Nealon, CEO of The Wesley Community. “By renovating our Springs residence, we can better meet the needs of residents who require daily care and support.”
There have also been upgrades to the ground floor of the Springs building. The entrance has received new doors to facilitate traffic in and out, the reception area has been refurbished, and the new gift shop space includes a café seating area.
Work on the enhancements began in February 2015 and has been overseen by locally-based Angerame Architects, P.C. and construction management firm A.O.W. Associates, Inc. Financing has been provided by the Adirondack Trust Company.
Renovations to the remaining floors of the Springs building are scheduled to take place during ensuing phases of the project. The Wesley Health Care Center has 342 long-term care residents.
