Happy Memorial Day!

Today we honor and remember those who gave their lives for our country. At Cedar Haven we have the privilege of serving over 20 veterans who have chosen to reside and receive care at our facility.

We hope that you enjoy this video that was made to thank and celebrate them as well as the veterans and military family members who are part of our team.

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

“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!

Meet Silvestre and Christine, Recent Short-term Rehab Graduates

Meet Silvestre and Christine, Recent Short-term Rehab Graduates

Silvestre and Christine both recented graduated from our Short-term Therapy Program and had great comments to share about our program and therapists. Congratulations to you both on meeting your goals!

Silvestre and Christine both graduated recently from our Short-term Therapy program. They are pictured here with their program completion certifications at their graduation ceremonies with some of our therapy staff. 

Christine commented that she chose Cedar Haven for her care needs because she is a Lebanon local and has three granddaughters who work at our facility. Christine noted that, “All the therapists were very nice. They all had techniques that helped me.” When asked what she is most looking forward to returning to back at home, she shared that she loves “sitting, relaxing, and doing needlepoint. I like to make Christmas stockings to hang on the mantel. I also like having my grandchildren over to visit.” Christine is here pictured with three members of our therapy team who assisted her in her recovery.

Silvestre also had positive feedback to share upon his completion of our therapy program. Silvestre said that he “liked the way the staff treated me. The nurses, doctors and CNAs. I had three wonderful therapy ladies that helped me get better so I could return to home”. When asked what activity he was most excited about resuming upon graduating from our program, he said, “I’m looking forward to going shopping at Walmart!” Silvestre is pictured here with Nichole Martin, COTA, and Ann Jones, OTR, who both assisted him during his stay with us.

Please join us in congratulating Silvestre and Christine in both meeting their therapeutic goals in our Short-term Rehab program. We are so glad that you chose us for our post-acute care needs and wish you all the best as you return to your favorite activities! Visit our blog again to meet more of our Short-term Rehab graduates in the future as part of this ongoing series.
