Coronavirus UpdateView All Updates
Dear Family and Friends,
We understand the huge toll that separation has taken on our residents and families. We are excited to announce that our Genesis-affiliated Centers will now allow indoor visitation at all times and for all residents (regardless of vaccination status), with the exception of the three scenarios listed below. CMS, the federal agency that regulates nursing centers, has updated its visitation guidance due to high resident vaccination rates and a drop in COVID-19 cases around the country. read more

People who cared
Thank you for the wonderful care my mother received at Lehigh Commons. The staff and everyone involved with her took the time to really get to know her and to understand her personality. I always felt comfortable knowing that she was being helped by people who cared.
Thank you for all you are doing during this unusual time. There are not adequate words to express my appreciation and gratitude. What you have done goes far beyond the call of duty and shows deep dedication. You have given the residents and their loved ones kindness, caring, and most of all, hope.
Angels on earth
Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards the dedicated staff at Lehigh Commons. Your unrelenting determination to keep our loved ones safe is an effort in heroism. You are truly angels on earth.
Caring, attentive staff
Two years ago, our family was faced with some difficult decisions. Fortunately, Lehigh Commons became a part of our parents' lives. The caring, attentive staff has provided a safe, warm-hearted environment for our parents to spend these years in comfort and love. Never could we have imagined how they would blossom under your care! As the family does not live in the area, how reassuring it is to know that they are in a safe, pleasant setting surrounded by compassionate caregivers.
It truly is the people that make a place special.
Thank you for all that you do to care for our dad on a daily basis. It truly is the people that make a place special (which is why we chose Lehigh Commons). Thank you for your kindness, patience, and humor - I am always greeted with a smile. And for the attention you give to our dad!
Kindness and love.
We enjoyed the wonderful and delicious St. Patrick's Day dinner. We are so thankful for the kindness and love shown to each resident.
Your staff is there for our entire family.
I would like to say a big "Thank You" to the staff for taking such good care of my mom. Considering all the major life changes she has gone through, mom is thriving at her new home and she is enjoying herself with the residents and staff as they care for her needs. I truly do not remember mom being so content and having positive comments when asked how she is doing. She enjoys the meals...especially the desserts! Your staff is there for our entire family. Just wanted you to know how much we appreciate the good care she is receiving at Lehigh Commons.
Thank you so much for the very enjoyable end of summer picnic. We are thankful our mom is in a loving and caring home!
Thriving at Lehigh Commons
When looking for an assisted living facility for my brother, I knew I had to find a safe and caring environment with a structured daily routine. He is thriving at Lehigh Commons. He enjoys his caregivers and fellow residents. He is always excited to share his day with me over the phone or when I visit. He's having fun, and it shows! When anyone asks him how he likes Lehigh Commons he says, "Very nice, I really like it, they're my family!" What more could we ask for.. he's found a home and I've got peace of mind.
Thank you for the best care anywhere for our mom! You are the most wonderful team. Please know how much you all are appreciated.
