I am thankful for the chance to continue to connect the essential mission of Wesley with the greater Saratoga Community.”
Roselan, a newcomer to The Wesley Community and incoming Director of Assisted Living at Woodlawn Commons, will oversee the 40-bed assisted living facility’s operations and staff while promoting Wesley’s core tenets of exemplary care and compassion for all residents.

“Joining the Wesley and Woodlawn family has been an incredible experience,” said Roselan. “The residents and care team have been extraordinarily welcoming and helpful as we navigate this new era together. I look forward to working with the residents and care team at Woodlawn for many years to come.”
