  • Wesley Enhanced Living Burholme Description

    For those seniors that need personal care services, assistance with the activities of daily living, our Burholme community has everything needed for a comfortable and enjoyable lifestyle: daily support care and services; maintenance free living; three freshly-prepared meals daily; and new studio or one-bedroom apartment homes. These services and amenities are offered in our handsomely renovated community with attractive landscaped gardens and stimulating daily activities. Personal Care can be compared to what other areas of the state and country may refer to as “assisted living.”

    Families are reassured to know that residents have access to all of the living options they will ever need, including a seamless transition to the nearby Wesley Enhanced Living Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center at our Pennypack Park community should a higher level of care and services ever be needed.

    With very affordable rates, starting as low as only $119/day, Burholme combines the features of an upscale residence with the safety and security of round-the-clock support. Our community encompasses classically elegant dining and lounge areas, as well as contemporary touches like our popular “Sit and Sip” coffee bar.
