library1 webHow do you envision your retirement? Do you want an active, independent lifestyle? Do you want to be surrounded by vibrant people who share your passion for living? Do you want to spend your time and energy doing things you enjoy without having to concern yourself with mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, or fixing broken appliances?

The Terrace at Phoebe Allentown is the perfect community for seniors who wants to remain active and independent without the burden of maintaining property, and with access to long-term care services if they’re needed in the future. Dick Reider, a resident at the Terrace, is a good example of what it means to be active and independent at Phoebe Allentown. At age 87, Dick is an avid golfer who plays 18 holes two days a week and works out at the gym three days a week. Since his move to Phoebe, Reider has found the time and freedom - after 62 years of playing golf - to concentrate on improving his score. “A lot of the things that worry you in the past disappear here,” Reider said in a recent issue of Phoebe’s Messenger magazine.
Having the freedom to enjoy life without the overwhelming responsibilities of maintaining a home may sound too good to be true. And what about the other issues that come with aging? What if you become disabled and need assistance with the tasks of daily living? Would you like to know that you can stay in your community? And what if you need skilled nursing later on?
As a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), Phoebe Allentown offers services and resources for every personal need. At a CCRC, you have the opportunity to remain at your community even as you transition to higher levels of care. As such, CCRC residents have peace of mind knowing they won’t have to relocate should their care needs change. Phoebe Allentown offers a
continuum of care services, including independent living, short-term and
outpatient rehabilitation, personal care, memory support, dementia care, and skilled nursing care all on one campus.
In addition to Phoebe Allentown’s continuum of care, you’ll find a variety of opportunities for social, cultural, and recreational engagement. Located in the West End District of Allentown, residents enjoy convenient access downtown shops, restaurants, parks and theaters, and sporting events. The Terrace is just a few hundred feet from the Allentown Fairgrounds and Farmer’s Market, and just a few minutes from Muhlenberg and Cedar Crest Colleges, Scottish Rite Cathedral, Cedar Beach Park, and the Allentown Rose Garden. And within the Terrace community, there is an extensive array of opportunities to stay fit and connected, as well as enjoy maintenance-free living:

  • Fitness/game/recreation rooms
  • Upscale dining options
  • Housekeeping and linen service
  • Transportation to medical appointments and scheduled events
