Cedar Haven Coronavirus Update

Cedar Haven Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus has brought a number of changes to daily life and work at our facility. Visitation has been restricted for several weeks. All staff have their temperatures taken multiple times a day and are screened for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Our Resident Care Connection and Telehealth program is in full-swing, with numerous family and provider video calls taking place for our residents everyday.

Here are a few responses from family members who have utilized this service:

“I want to express my deep appreciation for this wonderful provision offered to us! Theresa is very kind and considerate. To still have some contact with mom means so much to me. Thank You!”

“It was awesome we are elated to be able to see our Uncle.”

“We appreciate that you gave private family time. Thank you for that, and the overall effort.”

It’s hard to express just how much we appreciate our one-of-a-kind team and very own “Healthcare Heros” at Cedar Haven. This team goes above and beyond to help our residents enjoy life and stay safe. Thank you all for your commitment to our residents.

Please enjoy this video of a Therapeutic Recreation Dance Party Parade that was held at our facility to lift the spirits of the residents and team during these uncertain times. As always, you can view updates from our facility related to coronavirus on our dedicated COVID page: https://cedarhaven.healthcare/coronavirus

Cedar Haven Announces Partnership with Nightingale College: Experiential Learning HUB for Nursing Students in Central PA & 10% Tuition Discount for Cedar Haven Team-members

Cedar Haven Announces Partnership with Nightingale College: Experiential Learning HUB for Nursing Students in Central PA & 10% Tuition Discount for Cedar Haven Team-members

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center is proud to announce that we are partnering with Nightingale College to offer our staff and the Lebanon community several unique educational opportunities through Nightingale’s accredited online nursing programs.

Nightingale College’s blended distance format allows nursing students in the pre-licensure nursing degree programs (ADN and BSN Programs) to engage in online instruction from the comfort of their own homes, while completing on-ground experiential learning at health care facilities in Central PA like Cedar Haven.

Cedar Haven team-members are eligible to receive a 10% discount on tuition at Nightingale College! Interested candidates can learn more on their website and apply online for one of three semesters / start dates:

Summer 2020 Semester (begins on May 4, 2020)

Fall 2020 Semester (begins on August 31, 2020)

Spring 2021 Semester (begins on January 4, 2021)

(Please note that all new learners are required to enroll and complete Nightingale’s College Readiness Online Seminar, which begins a month before the start dates listed above).

Candidates who already have their RN license and are interested in pursuing their BSN degree in order to further their careers and improve their clinical skills may consider Nightingale’s CCNE-accredited and fully online RN-to-BSN Program. Nightingale also offers an Associate Degree in Nursing Program and a BSN Degree Program that may interest some of our current CNAs, LPNs, or auxiliary staff members. You can request more information about their programs at http://nightingale.edu/request-info.

Nightingale College boasts no wait list as well as personalized attention from a dedicated faculty. They also offer advanced placement for LPNs who wish to enter their programs.

This partnership is an exciting development for Cedar Haven as we strive to provide the highest-quality care for our residents every day. We are highly committed to supporting and spearheading healthcare education initiatives, including our established NAT (Nursing Assistant Trainee) Program which allows for in-house training for Certified Nursing Assistants by Cedar Haven’s own Staff Education department.

Cedar Haven is thrilled to expand our list of educational partners by welcoming Nightingale College to Cedar Haven in this manner. In doing so, Cedar Haven has provided space for Nightingale’s experiential learning efforts, which include access to computer-operated nursing mannequins and other helpful resources. Together, we can improve healthcare and educate new nurses for the benefit of the Central Pennsylvania Community.

Halloween Joy with the Cedar Haven Team

Halloween Joy with the Cedar Haven Team

Is there a skilled nursing team out there that is more passionate about Halloween than the Cedar Haven staff? If you have been part of the Cedar Haven family for some time, you won’t be surprised to hear that the Therapeutic Recreation staff went above and beyond once again in putting together a “Haunted Rec Room” for the enjoyment of the residents. Many team members also wore festive costumes to bring some fun and joy to the residents. Thank you all for your hard work in making this Halloween another one to remember at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center in Lebanon!

The Haunted Rec Room included a number of fun and interactive displays for the residents to experience!

Thanks to the creativity and enthusiasm of our team, the Residents enjoyed appearances by the “Mean Girls,” Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World, Ms. Pac-Man and the Pac-Man Monsters, Bumble Bees, Bob Ross, a Pirate, and more: 

From all of us at Cedar Haven, Happy Halloween!

Car Show at Cedar Haven (Photos)

Car Show at Cedar Haven (Photos)

This is the first in a new series of posts called “#EnjoyLifeWithUs,” that highlight the uniquely fun activity and event offerings that are a way of life at Cedar Haven.

On August 21st, our residents were able to enjoy our  “Cruisin’ on the REC Trail” car show as local car enthusiasts drove their antique and modern cars to our grounds for the annual event.  The Cedar Haven Car Show is always free to attend and for participants as well, as it is designed and orchestrated for the enjoyment of our residents.

Marcia Krause, our Director of Administrative Services, stated that “Watching the faces of our residents while listening to Dean-o sing “God Bless the USA” at our Car Show gave me goosebumps!” She went on to say that “They, as well as I were moved by Dean-O’s performance of this popular song.  It was a beautiful day for the Car Show, and we are very appreciative of the car owners who participated in this wonderful event.”

Marie Anderson, Director of Therapeutic Recreation at Cedar Haven, wanted to express thanks to the team who made the special event possible: “Thank you to the TR team for all the hard work with helping to facilitate the Car Show,” she said. “Chris Heisey did it again this year. All of her hard work paid off: the residents, visitors, staff, and drivers had a blast at the Show.  The Car Show would not have happened if it was not for her, we hope she plans on continuing the tradition.” We hope you all enjoy the fun pictures from the event below.

You can always view our full event calendar on our Events page.

Thanks for another great year cruisin’ with us on the REC trail!

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

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.
