“Instant Friends” – #EnjoyLifeWithUs

This is the first in a new series of posts introducing friends who #EnjoyLifeWithUs at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. Mafalda and Diane enjoy the uniquely fun activity and event offerings that are a way of life at Cedar Haven:

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center, a skilled nursing facility in Lebanon, provides high-quality care in a friendly and engaging atmosphere. Cedar Haven is a premier choice for skilled nursing, short-term rehab, and memory care in Central Pennsylvania. We are known for the high-quality care we provide, our successful outcomes, and the unique quality-of-life benefits that we offer our residents. For example, up to 100 fun activities are offered for our residents each month. Therefore, many of our residents have made meaningful friendships and relationships at Cedar Haven while participating in our social events.

From Roommates to “Instant Friends”

Mafalda and Diane were instant friends when they met at Cedar Haven.  The two women were introduced when Diane moved into Mafalda’s room and they have been inseparable ever since.  They can be found at most of the activities offered at Cedar Haven but their favorites are bocce ball and bowling.  Mafalda and Diane recently participated in a fun activities trip to the Twin Kiss in Myerstown, PA.

Diane said that their friendship works because “we never get mad at each other”. Mafalda is thankful that she found a friend who can help her with things she is not able to do on her own, like riding the elevator or shopping at the Cedar Haven gift shop.

Diane and Mafalda have many friends at Cedar Haven with whom they enjoy playing games and reminiscing about earlier days.  They are both thankful for the activities and the Cedar Haven staff.

These ladies are just two examples of residents whose lives have been positively impacted by the friendships they’ve made at Cedar Haven. 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.

Thank you for visiting our blog. Please check back for more resident spotlights featuring friends in the coming weeks!

Short-term Therapy Success Spotlight: Meet Evelyn

Short-term Therapy Success Spotlight: Meet Evelyn

“My Husband called Cedar Haven and there was a spot for me. I had the very best of everything there. I would highly recommend Cedar Haven to anyone.”

-Evelyn, Cedar Haven Short-term Therapy Graduate

Today we would like to introduce you to one of the successful “graduates” of our short-term therapy services at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. Evelyn was admitted to Cedar Haven last November after having major surgery and spending a month at a local hospital. Once she was ready to leave the hospital, she needed rehabilitation. When asked about her admission to Cedar Haven, Evelyn explained the following: “My Husband called Cedar Haven and there was a spot for me. I had the very best of everything there. I would highly recommend Cedar Haven to anyone.”

Cedar Haven’s Therapy Department: Therapeutic Success After Surgery

Evelyn shared that though she missed home after her surgery, she really needed assistance getting back her strength. “I couldn’t even lift my arm up over my head when I left the hospital,” Evelyn recalled. “They started small in Physical Therapy with me and now I’m able to do so much more. Cedar Haven has the best Physical Therapy department that I can imagine.”

Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy

Like many of our residents, Evelyn received both Physical and Occupational Therapy services during her stay at Cedar Haven. Speech Therapy is also offered at Cedar Haven.

“Trace, Laurie, Bruce, and everybody else in the physical therapy department were all fantastic,” Evelyn shared. “My Occupational Therapists were wonderful, too. Nothing but the best. I couldn’t be more grateful for everything they’ve done for me.”

 

Choose a facility with a low rehospitalization rate

In March and April of 2017, Cedar Haven’s rehospitalization rate (the rate at which our residents go back to the hospital within their first 30 days at our facility) was under 6%, which is dramatically lower than the 18% national average. Call our Admissions department at (717) 274-0421 to learn more about our short-term therapy department and to make plans for your admission to Cedar Haven following an upcoming hospital stay.

Please also join us in congratulating Evelyn and her team of therapists at Cedar Haven on another successful recovery!
