Learn about Cribbs Residential Center – Enhanced Living and Personal Care
On Wesbury’s main campus Cribbs Residential Center offers 91 apartments – private studio and 2 room suites. Since 1918 Wesbury has been providing Enhance Living and Personal Care to seniors 62 and older. With everything you need at your fingertips, residents enjoy attending church services, working in the community garden or signing up for monthly scheduled outings to shop, go out to lunch or to a mystery ride and location.
Enhanced Living and Personal Care bridges the gap between not being able to live independently at home but not yet needing skilled nursing care. Residents can bring their cars, travel to and from campus and do not have to worry about meals, housekeeping, laundry and transportation. Nursing is on staff 24/7 and can provide additional support when needed with daily tasks such as assistance with bathing, dressing and monitoring medication.
Over the past three years, our focus has been on improving the living spaces to include walk-in showers and kitchenettes where possible and updating the wall colors, trim, flooring selections, fixtures, and outdoor balcony carpet and railings.

Residents have the option to start their day at their own pace by choosing to come for breakfast in the dining room anytime from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Of course, they can choose to sleep in and make their own breakfast if they prefer. There are now also two seating times for lunch at 11:30AM, and 12:00PM. Residents also have the flexibility to eat over at the Neighborhood Grill, located in Grace Rehabilitation and Health Center, if they so choose.
Another great concern that folks have when moving to an apartment is whether or not they may bring their pet. Pets are permitted at Cribbs Residential Center. Not only may family members bring pets to visit, but residents who are able to care for their pet, will be permitted to have their cat, bird, or fish reside with them in their apartment.
Melissa Porter, VP of Sales and Marketing states, “Adding to opportunities for good well-being, we increased programming to help residents stay active to prolong good physical and mental health. All in all, these improvements bring together a community of more choice, opportunity, and flexibility than ever before.”
