Personal care homes provide seniors with professional assistance when needed and a way to enjoy an active lifestyle. Most personal care and assisted living communities offer meals, housekeeping and transportation services, assistance with the activities of daily living, security and 24/7 on-call assistance. Personal care homes provide the opportunity for companionship for those seniors who would rather not live alone and often host activities in a group setting to promote socialization.

You want to ensure that the community and the senior living option you choose still affords you the opportunity to get out and try new things. If you’re looking for a place to retire that offers enough amenities to keep you busy, the Lehigh Valley, PA area is the perfect spot.
