How Heather Glen Senior Living helps residents avoid isolation

February 5, 2021

Wintertime in the Lehigh Valley may be beautiful, but the cold temperatures and hazardous weather can keep people wanting to stay cozy indoors—only adding to the isolation many seniors feel. The best way to ensure your loved one is spending time with others in a safe and monitored environment is by finding a personal care community that puts the health and happiness of their residents first. Heather Glen Senior Living recognizes how important social interaction is to mental and cognitive well-being, and that’s why our community includes the following features to help your loved ones avoid isolation, especially during the colder (and sometimes lonelier) winter months. 

Exciting activity programming

Heather Glen Senior Living provides a wide range of exciting programs for residents to participate in, from cooking lessons and happy hour to book club and exercise classes. We focus on incorporating all aspects of wellness into our activity programming: physical, social, environmental, emotional, spiritual and intellectual. This unique lineup of activities means there’s something for just about everyone who lives in our community—helping to facilitate interaction, form bonds over shared interests and create lasting friendships between residents. Activities are scheduled for every day of the week and are also customized for both personal care and memory care residents. 

Shared dining, activity and lounge areas  

In addition to scheduled programming for residents, they have the opportunity to connect with others in common areas. With a community dining room serving three chef-prepared meals per day plus snacks, a fitness center, garden area, putting green and lounges with televisions, there’s plenty of places for seniors to make friends or spend time with each other. Residents enjoy playing cards and checkers, getting pampered at the salon and staying active in the fitness center. Once the weather warms up, many will go on strolls together throughout the outdoor garden and walking trail. 

Care staff available 24/7 

First and foremost, Heather Glen Senior Living is committed to giving seniors the best care and assistance available. That starts with a highly-experienced staff made up of industry professionals and credentialed caregivers. Our qualified and friendly caregivers not only work to take care of residents, but to interact and form special friendships with them as well. Additionally, our community encourages visitors—currently with stricter guidelines and precautions during the COVID-19 health pandemic – so that residents can spend time with family and friends.  

Endless socialization opportunities  

Heather Glen Senior Living prioritizes the mental and physical health of our residents, which is why we strive to go above and beyond in our services and amenities. Our award-winning community has been recognized as one of the best places for seniors to live in the Lehigh Valley.
