Not very clean, had an odor from when you walked in, warm walking through the hallways, not very bright (hallways a bit gloomy), knowledgeable staff and friendly as well as were residents, good location, dining area big and menu looked amazing, full calendar of events.

We appreciate your feedback and comments regarding Wesley Enhanced Living Pennypack Park.

Unfortunately, you visited us on a day when temperatures were above average and our air conditioner was being worked on. If there was an odor, that may have played a part, and lights were intentionally dimmed to try to keep the building cool while the unit was being repaired.

We apologize for any inconvenience and less than satisfactory experience this outage may have caused. If you would like to revisit the community, we would welcome the opportunity to show you our community in a better light.

We look forward to hearing from you again!

Best nursing home

First [Name removed] (admissions outreach coordinator) is the best at her job. She was very helpful and very attentive to my needs. She was able to help me get my mom in this facility immediately. The staff and the workers here are wonderful and friendly. This is the best nursing facility. I’m so thankful to everyone who works in the facility.

Plenty to offer, but still affordable

My mother has been at Pennypack for 6 months now. At the time, after visiting a number of options in the area, we were beginning to despair of finding an acceptable independent-living option that fell within her price range. Pennypack offered the perfect balance of affordability and amenities, and, to be honest, seemed almost too good to be true.

I've been putting off writing this review as it can take time to settle in to a new community and really appreciate both the pluses and the minuses. It's now been almost 7 months, and my mother LOVES Pennypack. Importantly, she is not shy and has made a conscious effort to engage. She takes full advantage of the many activities available, including the regular shopping trips, educational opportunities, an excellent concert series they hosted, the movie nights, and access to the exercise bikes. Her health has improved dramatically and she really feels like she is part of a community. Staff check in if she's not at dinner, to see whether she needs anything. When she had questions about changes in her insurance coverage, they walked her through everything until it all made sense. From the front desk to the dining staff, she knows pretty much everyone by name at this point and I am struck by how frequently (and genuinely) she is greeted when we walk through the halls together.

There are of course areas for potential improvement. She lives in the older building and there are a few places that will benefit from refurbishment, plans for which are apparently underway. While there is a computer room, it was definitely one of the more outdated and less inviting ones we saw among the different facilities.

In all, though, we could not be more grateful to have found Pennypack.

Thank you so much for your comments. We are thrilled to hear that your mother is thriving at Wesley Enhanced Living Pennypack Park!

Toured this community on the 18th of December. Staff very friendly and able to answer our questions should Mom need to move to a higher level of care. Clean environment. Resident's looked well cared for and comfortable. Studio apartment was a nice size. Assisted living resident's able to mingle with Independent living, which I thought was nice. Beautiful court yard, would not even know you where on Roosevelt blvd, courtyard is large and centered in the middle of the building.

Nice

This is a nice community. The person that took us on tour was nice. This community does seem to offer a lot of nice amenities. This community did not have an opening when we were looking.

Happy with My Move Here

This is a nice community, and I'am looking forward to my move here. My family is happy with my choice to move here, they know its a great facility. Everyone has been very welcoming, and kind. The community looks great, everything is very well maintained. I know I will be happy at this community. It is a lovely place.

Overly Satisfied !!

I am overly satisfied with my new apartment at this community, it has a full kitchen and washer and dryer are included. The property is absolutely beautiful with a huge courtyard and lots of gorgeous flowers. There is also nursing care available around the clock in case of emergencies. I cannot say enough great things about my new living environment, I am very pleased.

I am Happy Here

I really like it here at this community. They are caring for me very well. Everyone here is very nice and helpful. I have a lovely room. The community looks great and everything is very clean. The staff has been very nice and helpful. They are always there when I need some help. There are nice activities and good food. I am happy here and would recommend it.

too early

I really can't say too much in a week and a half. All we have done mostly is unpack and try to get settled in.
Everyone has been friendly and helpful, but we know nothing, yet, about care services and activities. Value...too early to tell.

Personal Care Respite Stay

My MIL needed a place to stay after being released from rehab post hip replacement. Her previous residence was no longer a viable option and as the hospitalization happened suddenly, there was no prior planning.

We ultimately chose the Personal Care unit at Wesley Pennypack not only because it was lovely, really a very nice look and feel to the entire place, and that the marketing staff was super helpful and easy to work with, but because in addition to the personal care unit, they also had what seemed like a viable option for "later" with a more active community.

The only negative I have to say was the confusion upon admittance about who handles what medically speaking. Having come from hospitals and rehabs where everything was handled, and those places wrote orders for what should occur next, there was a combination of a paper misplaced and then a misunderstanding about whether it had been received that led to some concern and frustration in the first 48 hours, but that was all resolved and it was of no fault of WEL's, just the nature of a move like this with many people being involved on both sides.

I would highly recommend visiting this community to see if it feels like the right fit for you or your loved one. Its hard to imagine how upscale it can feel being so close to the main road and for the price. The people there really seem to love working there and their interactions are always helpful, pleasant and caring.

This seems to be the frontrunner. Their house just went up for sale and they are starting to pack up. It's a waiting game since they are not fast movers.
