Residents in our personal care household are encouraged to maintain as much independence as is suitable to his/her needs. We can provide assistance with medications and daily living activities, such as bathing, grooming, eating, dressing, and toileting. Outside agencies like skilled nursing, physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy can come to the community on an as-needed basis. We also offer nutritious meals, programmed activities, and housekeeping.
We have a rich activities program that offers a variety of spiritual activities, games, exercise, visiting performers, and day trips to places of interest around the Lehigh Valley.
Residents living in Memory Care also receive assistance with medications and daily living activities, but within a smaller setting and with accommodations to meet their current needs. Routines are very important for those dealing with dementia. We keep this in mind when developing a care plan for each resident.
The activity program in Memory Care is designed to keep our residents engaged with suitable activities. As in Personal Care, spiritual activities, along with games, exercise, musical performances, and outings round out our Memory Care activity program.
Working in Legacy Place is so much more than a job. You get to care for elderly ones who have spent decades in faithful service with experiences that encourage and enrich our lives. You work alongside brothers and sisters who have found much joy as they share in the commission “…to look after orphans and widows in their tribulations…” – James 1:27
You can apply for paid work with us, in a full-time or part-time capacity. Please have a look and apply through this page: https://www.legacyplace.org/employment/
Legacy Place does not receive any government funding. In Pennsylvania, there is no government funding for personal care facilities and only skilled nursing homes provide subsidized care to residents who qualify financially and clinically.
Revenues from resident room rentals do not fully cover the expenses incurred in operation, and donations have always been necessary to fill this need and keep doors open.
Our elderly ones appreciate your willing and generous spirit! Here are some ways in which they can benefit from your help: https://www.legacyplace.org/ways-to-help/
