Medical services are under the supervision of a Medical Director. The medical staff at Wesley is under contract through Saratoga Hospital to provide primary care services.

If leaving the facility for a long period, residents should notify your unit coordinator in advance so arrangements may be made for necessary medications while you are away from Wesley.

What is a health care proxy?

What is a Power of Attorney?

A financial Power of Attorney names someone to oversee your finances. There are several situations in which a person might want a fully-executed power of attorney. Most common is in the event you’re declared incompetent, and you are not able to act on your own behalf due to cognitive impairment often occasioned by Alzheimer’s or dementia. If you have a power of attorney completed prior to this event, it ensures that your personal affairs are overseen and looked after when you no longer have the ability to manage them on your own. This includes legal and financial matters. Please consult with your attorney to assure this document is completed properly.

What type of payment is accepted at the skilled nursing home?

Wesley accepts Medicare as well as Medicare HMO advantage and Private HMO plans based on our facility participation with the plans and providing that the resident meets skilled criteria required by these plans. In addition, Wesley accepts Medicaid, Managed Medicaid and Private Pay residents. We will also bill your Long Term Care insurance directly for reimbursement to the resident.
