Mike Steffy

  • I recommend Mike for employee of the month! I recommend him not only for his time of service at Cedar Haven, much of the time Mike goes over and beyond his duties. His persistence and dedication are greatly appreciated!
  • Mike was very nice with my mom and showed patience. He spoke to her with kindness. He did exactly what she had asked and replaced her cup holder.

 

Priscilla Muzzy

  • Priscilla is a very kind aide and is very nice to the residents. The residents love her and light up with they see her.
  • Priscilla is very kind to the residents and always helpful. She is always there to help.

 

Jean Engle

  • Jean is a valuable employee in the Therapeutic Recreation Department. She really cares about the residents, their needs, and their room visits. She especially works to efficiently run the craft department in the recreational room. She takes special interest in the Catholic services. She is quick to rearrange her schedule to benefit the department. She even volunteers when she isn’t scheduled!
  • Jean is willing to help any of her coworkers. She will pick and volunteer her time to the residents, by coming in to help in the giftshop or a Sunday service when she is off. She is always thinking of her residents.

Enjoy Life with Us – Summer Fun at Cedar Haven

This is part of a series of posts that highlight how our residents and team #EnjoyLifeWithUs at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. Here is a peek into our summer festivities:

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center, a skilled nursing facility in Lebanon, provides high-quality care in a friendly and engaging atmosphere. Up to 100 fun activities are offered for our residents each month. This summer has held a number of fun and engaging events for our residents and their families to enjoy.

Activities Designed for You to Enjoy

This summer, our residents enjoyed a “Christmas in July” celebration and a rousing watermelon seed spitting competition. Best aim went to our Administrative Services Director, Marcia Krause and best form to our Director of Care Management, Crystal Arment. Our Director of Nursing Development, Kim Santiago, took home the prize for farthest distance. Congrats all and thank you for your ongoing efforts in making everyday special and fun for our residents.

In addition to hosting a number of resident family picnics, our Therapeutic Recreation department also went above and beyond in preparing an in-house mini golf course for our residents to enjoy. Here are some photos from their labor of love:

 

Therapies that Improve Quality of Life

Not all of our residents plan to stay with us long-term. Some join us to take advantage of our convenient in-house therapy department following a hospital stay due to illness, injury, or surgery. One such recent short-term resident graduated from our therapy program last week and had some kind words to say about Cedar Haven:

 

If somebody would need to go somewhere I would recommend Cedar Haven.  The people that took care of me, I couldn’t find any better.  On every shift I would ring the bell and they were right there and if I need to, will come back.  The view is great and everyone is so pleasant.

Veronica P.

Short-term Rehab Resident

Thank you for the kind words about your stay with us, Veronica! Here she is pictured with members of our team who assisted during her successful recovery:

View Our Refreshed Semi-Private Rooms: Attend Our Short-Term Therapy Open House

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center is well-known in Lebanon County for providing high-quality long-term skilled nursing care. Did you know that we also offer short-term rehab care for patients recovering from surgery or sudden illness? Our rehospitalization rates, which are far below the National Average, and our positive therapy outcomes make Cedar Haven a premier choice for your short-term rehab needs. 

We are pleased to announce that we now have 6 new large, newly-refreshed semi-private rooms located throughout our facility and are almost finished with a refresh of our entire Short-Term Rehabilitation floor.

The fresh paint, new furniture, updated lighting, and flat-screen TVs offer a comfortable setting for our short-term residents who require intensive on-site therapy after an illness, surgery, or hospital stay.

The other big change concerns the make-up of our short-term rehab floor, which now houses short-term rehab residents in private and semi-private rooms, creating a quiet environment conducive to recovery and wellness for those with intensive rehabilitation needs.

You are invited to tour our in-house Therapy gym and visit the Short-term Rehabilitation floor during our Open House on September 25th from 1 to 3pm. Door Prizes will be raffled off every 30 minutes and our flat screen TV grand prize winner will be drawn at the end of the Open House.

If you are interested in learning more and this time does not work for you, please contact us to schedule another time to tour our updated facilities.
