The Wesley Community acquires home care provider



SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. The Wesley Community recently announced the acquisition of Saratoga Springs-based home care provider Senior Solutions, a news release said, which enables the senior services organization to offer in-home care to clients and residents.

The move expands the service offerings of The Wesley Community from its Saratoga Springs campus to a home-based setting, and extends the geographic footprint of the organization from beyond Saratoga and Warren Counties to include people in the Schenectady area, the release said.

The acquisition also allows The Wesley Community to add another level of service to its continuum of care model, which includes independent and enriched living, short-term rehabilitation and long-term care options for seniors.

“Aging at home is an important priority for many adults and their families. Wesley Senior Solutions provides the senior population with an alternative option beyond the traditional residential care currently available on our campus,” The Wesley Community CEO Brian Nealon said in the release. “All of us at The Wesley Community are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, and this new offering will allow us to bring that same level of service to clients who wish to remain in the comfort of their own home.”

Wesley Senior Solutions will offer a wide array of comprehensive home health care services to meet the needs of individuals on a 24-hour basis. Personal care services available include: assistance with personal hygiene and skin care; assistance with the use of a bed pan or toilet; using alternative walking devices; assistance with applying non-prescription topical medications; recording weight; medication reminders and refilling prescriptions at the local pharmacy.

Home health professionals can further assist with: changing urinary diversion appliances; collecting urine specimens and assisting self-directing clients with the use of their oxygen equipment. All clients will receive a customized care plan designed to meet their individual needs after a professional in-home nursing assessment.

Both long- and short-term care options are available, the release said.

Non-medical companion care services will also be available, which include: daily routine maintenance; light housekeeping; linen changes; laundry; meal preparation; shopping; and transportation to appointments, events, or recreational activities.
