We're not your typical retirement community in Allentown. For starters, we have really great food. Just ask our residents. With restaurant-style dining, our residents enjoy catching up with neighbors over a delicious home-prepared meal or treating guests in our neighborhood-style Bistro—all on the same campus. Click here for more on our dining programs and a sample menu.
While our delectable dining experience fills the appetite, our extensive community lifestyle program fuels the mind, body and spirit. Unlike most assisted living or senior citizen housing, our residents live beyond their apartments and become as involved as they choose within our campus, the city, region, even road trips to outside Pennsylvania.
One of the main reasons our residents and their families first considered a retirement community in Allentown was for an easier, safer environment—what all basic senior citizen housing and assisted living facilities provide. But, one of the main reasons they chose Country Meadows was to get back to living life through our full array of social events, fitness, spiritual enrichment programs, recreational activities and lifelong learning.
There's always something to do, for every level of care. And it's not just for residents. Friends and families are invited to check our community calendars and join us for a meal, activity or an event of their choice.
We welcome all religious and cultural backgrounds and embrace an inclusive interfaith approach to spiritual care. We have full-time chaplains who offer pastoral counseling, conduct religious services and are available for residents' spiritual needs. In addition to the on-campus interfaith religious services, we provide opportunities for residents to attend worship services in the local community.
Physical activity helps keep seniors energetic and independent. We have a dedicated fitness staff who promotes healthy lifestyles with individual and group programs from SilverSneakers® fitness classes, Arthritis Foundation's Tai Chi and bocce ball tournaments (on our outdoor regulation size court) to one-on-one training and interactive bowling, golf, tennis and other computer games.
On any given day, our calendars may include art classes, a lecture by a local professor, music lessons, a field trip to a museum, cooking demonstrations, gardening and current events discussions.
No matter their age or abilities, every resident still has much to contribute. Whether giving of their time, experience or talents, we help arrange volunteer opportunities, involve residents in on-campus life and find many ways to connect our residents to share a lifetime of knowledge with others and help make life better for everyone.
Here, our residents meet neighbors who enjoy the same pastimes, love the same activities, have the same taste in music or books and for many Lehigh Valley natives, share the same stories. Residents delight in seeing familiar faces of old friends and welcome the chance to make new ones.
