Cedar Haven Back to School Words of Wisdom

Cedar Haven Back to School Words of Wisdom

This is the part of a new series of posts showing how residents #EnjoyLifeWithUs at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center.

You know a new school year is upon us when the “Back to School” photos flood your social media stream. Last week, our residents took the opportunity to share some “Back to School photos” of their own by sharing words of wisdom for today’s students. We hope you enjoy reading through their best advice for young people today:

 

 

Richard Boyer

Class of 1963,  Northern Lebanon

“Work hard in school and out of school. Good work ethic is needed.”

Patrick Mangan

Class of 1965,  Lebanon Catholic

“Stick to it. Study and do your homework. Try to be as obedient as you can.”

 

Daryl Hoffmaster

Class of 1961,  South Lebanon

“Learn something PRACTICAL.”

Paul Garrison

Class of 1948,  Allentown Central Catholic; 1953, Kutztown University

“Read, Study, Listen, Observe, Follow Instructions.”

 

Arletta Posey

Class of 1959,  North Lebanon

“Stay in school and graduate. You can’t get far without an education.”

The residents enjoyed sharing their words of wisdom with our team and we hope that you enjoy reading them as well. We all have so much to learn from our residents. Happy Back to School to everyone in our Cedar Haven family!

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!

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:

 

Take a look at our current event calendar to view the activity offerings at Cedar Haven this month and contact us with questions or if you would like a tour of our facility.

Morning under the Stars: Prom at Cedar Haven

Morning under the Stars: Prom at Cedar Haven

This is the part of a new series of posts showing how residents #EnjoyLifeWithUs at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. Marie Anderson, our Director of Therapeutic Recreation, and the rest of the Cedar Haven team worked together with students from Cedar Crest High School and Northern Lebanon High School to throw a fun-filled event for the enjoyment of our residents. 

We are very thankful to everyone who made the 2019 Senior Prom at Cedar Haven a smashing success last month, including DJ Mike Swisher, Mrs. Steckbeck and her Cedar Crest High School students, and a group of thoughtful students from Northern Lebanon High School. 

Marcia Krause, our Director of Administrative Services, shared the following comments with us about this unique event: 

“Music is a universal language. You can hear just one or two notes of a song – and you’re right back in that moment, back in that day, back at the prom. I saw the memories in the faces of our residents as they had a wonderful time at the ‘Morning Under the Stars.’ Many shared comments of how they loved to dance, how much they fun they were having and asking when we are going to do it again. It was a lovely day for them and once again our Therapeutic Recreation Department went above and beyond in making it a day for our residents to remember.”

 

 

We hope you enjoy photos of the students dancing, which brought big smiles and fond memories to mind for many of our residents, as well as the glamorous and fun prom attire that was worn by staff during the event.

 

 

Once again, we would like to extend a warm thank you to our talented activities team and this thoughtful group of students and for planning and taking part in such a fun, uplifting event for our residents to enjoy.

While Cedar Haven offers a number of fun events for residents each week, we always particularly enjoy when young people from the Lebanon community comes to visit. We hope all of you students have a great summer! Thank you for meeting us “under the stars.”
