Meet the Bollingers: Hear from Residents about Therapeutic Success

Meet the Bollingers: Hear from Residents about Therapeutic Success

At Cedar Haven, it is our pleasure to provide healthcare services for our residents when the need arises. It is also a joy to share their stories and successes with you. Recently, the Bollingers shared their experience at Cedar Haven with us in a new resident spotlight video:

Soupy: “I just want to say that everyone here has been helpful to us. We came here in wheelchairs and now we are walking the path.”

Shelly: “This is our home. I have been allowed to decorate which means so much to us. We feel like this is our home and we thank God for this place. It’s beautiful. Cedar Haven is an overall wonderful home for us.”

Please join us in congratulating Soupy and Shelly on meeting their goals with our in-house Therapy department. We wish you both continued health and happiness with us at Cedar Haven!

Meet the Cedar Haven Team’s Pets!

Meet the Cedar Haven Team’s Pets!

At Cedar Haven, we are celebrating Spring by sharing more about the great joy animals bring to our Team and residents! We began by sponsoring the adoption of a pet from the Humane Society of Lebanon County named Portia, who our Team selected to receive the Cedar Haven pet scholarship. Now, we would like to share some photos and thoughts with you from our Team of their furry friends. Please enjoy the adorable photos and happy sentiments!

Reese

Reese

Cat

Two days before I was supposed to adopt him from the Humane society I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.  I didn’t think I could take care of a kitten but my daughter talked me into it.  With my first chemo treatment I was very sick, he stayed by my side in bed and has been with me for almost 4 years now. During chemo he made me laugh every day.  Between Reese, my family, friends and Cedar Haven family I made it through those very difficult times.

And he still thinks that bowl is his.

Who do you think was rescued?

Baby is an adorable Shih-Pom. Some may say she also resembles a cotton ball with a tail. She is full of energy, loving, and smart! She enjoys learning new commands and tricks such as spin, kisses, shake, and sit. She enjoys going to Starbucks for a delicious Puppuccino and shopping trips to Pet Smart. Baby also enjoys meeting other furry friends on her walks. Baby is loved so much and a fur-ever friend!

In-house Clinics at Cedar Haven

In-house Clinics at Cedar Haven

At Cedar Haven, we are dedicated to connecting our residents to the specialist care they need. Cedar Haven provides a robust telehealth program in order to connect our residents with a number of specialists in a variety of disciplines from the comfort of their rooms. We also offer in-house clinics for the residents’ convenience.  The clinics include dental, optometry, podiatry, mental health, wounds, and a hearing aide clinic. Additionally, our family video call program is still going strong and making meaningful connections for our residents each week.

MaryAnn, a resident at Cedar Haven, recently shared about her positive experience with our hearing aide clinic. She mentioned that she’s been utilizing our hearing aid clinic for quite some time and is happy we provide this service in house. MaryAnn shared that “it is helpful to be able to do that here to avoid going out, especially given the colder weather.” 

You can learn more about our services by contacting our admissions department or scheduling a tour with us. We look forward to seeing you and answering your questions about how our residents enjoy life with us.
