“Great Mom”: Sylvia “loved everybody and was loved by all” at Cedar Haven

“Great Mom”: Sylvia “loved everybody and was loved by all” at Cedar Haven

Born and raised in Lebanon, Sylvia was a resident at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center for just over two years. Her son, Nick, recently ordered a plaque for her and had it installed at Cedar Haven in memory of his mother. The plaque reads “Great Mom” and is placed outside the facility where Sylvia “loved everybody— staff and residents.” Here she is pictured on the right, while enjoying time with a friend in the Cedar Haven dining room:

“Of course my mom loved to talk to people, she was 100% Italian,” Nick recently explained as he recalled her time at Cedar Haven. “She loved talking to the Cedar Haven staff and they grew to love her, too. She loved Bingo, going on trips, and all the activities.”

Nick was fortunate enough to work close to the facility, making it possible for him to eat lunch with his mother almost every day.

Nick had some very positive things to say about the care and service that his family experienced at Cedar Haven over the past two years. “Nursing staff members like Deb and Melissa were awesome,” he explained. “The finance office was awesome. You guys have been great—really caring and understanding.”

Our staff’s condolences and best wishes are with Nick and the rest of Sylvia’s family. It was a privilege to have her smiling face at the facility and we will remember her every time we see her plaque on the way into the building. We’re so thankful that she enjoyed our activities and daily interaction with our staff. From all of us at Cedar Haven, we hope your cherished memories bring you peace as you remember your “Great Mom.” Nick, please continue to stop by to say hi!

“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!
