Join Wesley at Saratoga Chowderfest



 
Wesley is happy to once again take part in Saratoga Chowderfest. Our team will be set up at the Saratoga Springs Visitors Center, which is located on Broadway and across from Congress Park. This year the Wesley Dining Services Team collected chowder recipes from residents and staff and held a campus-wide tasting and vote. A delicious recipe for Smokey Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Chowder won and will be our featured chowder this year. Be sure to stop by and give it a try!


2019 Chowderfest. Find us this year at The Saratoga Visitor's Center on Broadway.

The Campaign for Springs

 

In 2016, Wesley completed the first phase of renovations to the Springs building at Wesley Health Care Center – our oldest nursing home building. The 5th floor of Springs and the main lobby area of Wesley Health Care Center were transformed. The upgrades resulted in a contemporary, efficient, comfortable and home-like environment. The change is remarkable and well received by residents and families.

Now is the time to fulfill a commitment to residents and transform floors 2, 3 and 4 in the Springs Building. This second phase will require an investment of more than $20 million dollars and the Campaign for Springs is raising funds to help with the project’s cost through philanthropic contributions.
