Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

Lehigh Commons is proud to have served our community for the past 25 years, with a reputation for providing high-quality personal care and memory care services in a comfortable and safe environment. Senior Living is the preferred lifestyle for seniors who value their independence but would benefit from additional support to maintain it. Our community is designed with the needs and preferences of seniors in mind.
Our team of dedicated nursing staff are committed to providing customized assistance with activities of daily living and medication management to offer peace of mind and ease of living. Our in-house Powerback Rehabilitation team (physical, occupational, and speech therapists) are available for our residents to maintain their independence and to facilitate our rehab respite program.
We strive to meet the social needs of our residents through diverse and exciting recreational programs that include trips and transportation to local businesses and events. Our culinary team delights the taste buds of our residents, providing them nourishing and balanced meals. We strive to source our ingredients from small businesses and local farms, all designed to meet the individual preferences of our residents.
We are fortunate to be able to offer a variety of sizes and styles of apartments to fit the unique social and financial needs of our residents.
In addition to our personal care apartments, Lehigh Commons offers a cozy, secure memory care community with 14 private apartments and a beautiful enclosed courtyard with flowers and raised garden beds. Our Memory Care Community offers residents specialized programming and a private dining room, all overseen by our dedicated Memory Support Director.
Located on the same campus, residents of Lehigh Commons also have access to Complete Care at Lehigh, skilled nursing facility, which offers short term rehabilitation, should the need arise.

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.
