January 11, 2022

Heather Glen Senior Living knows that transitioning into a senior living community can be a scary or stressful time for older adults—but senior couples can tackle this new life and relationship milestone together.  

More time together

Moving into a personal care community, like Heather Glen Senior Living, frees people from the time-wasting tasks it takes to run a household. With so much of your life being managed by a caring staff of experts, couples can spend more hours doing things they love—together. Whether it be watching television, doing puzzles, reading by the fire or going on daily walks in the outdoor area, senior living provides a convenient, maintenance-free lifestyle to help seniors and their partners spend their time doing what they enjoy. You’ll read more of how this comes to fruition in the rest of the blog. 

Manageable living space

Part of that together time is available due to moving into a more manageable living space. Right-sizing is made easier when moving into a personal care community, with floor plans offering the perfect amount of space for older couples. Floor plans vary in square footage and features, but every couple can find something they love at Heather Glen Senior Living. 

Access to amenities

Heather Glen Senior Living offers the highest level of care in Lehigh Valley, including the amenities available to our residents. One of the biggest benefits couples will experience after choosing a personal care community is the access to life-enhancing services and amenities just outside their private suite’s door. 

Essential services include an on-site care staff available 24/7, on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapy, visiting healthcare providers (nurse practitioner, psychiatry, podiatry, laboratory, x-ray, pharmacy, dental and optometry), weekly housekeeping, well-balanced dining options and more. Having close proximity and availability to these services and amenities make it easier for couples to walk through these stages of life together—without the stress of transportation and scheduling. 

Then there’s the fun stuff. On-site recreational amenities include shared fitness and activity areas, common areas with televisions, reading areas, a walking trail, putting green and more. Along with programmed activities every day, living in a personal care community gives couples the opportunity to find new hobbies and interests or grow together in their existing passions.  

Less overall stress

As noted in the previous points, couples who decide to make the move to a senior living community can experience less overall stress and more time to dedicate to themselves and each other. Heather Glen Senior Living offers the peace of mind so many older adults (and their loved ones) are looking for when finding the best possible living options—unmatched amenities, on-site services, activity programming, private suites, chef-prepared meals and more.
