About the community

Above and Beyond is a family-run company founded by brother and sister, Nader and Basima. Basima Hamati-Attieh, BSN, RN, and PCH Administrator, attended St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing and has over 20 years of nursing experience to her name. Her brother, Nader Hamati, BS-ME and PCH administrator, handles the business side of things with his advanced business skills and experience working in the managerial field. With his organizational skills and Basima’s skilled nursing experience, they have designed a personal care home community which goes “above and beyond” most care homes. Basima’s knowledge and experience pushes their home to the next level of care, as her skilled oversight has been known to save lives.

We are a 150-resident assisted living community which offers personal care, respite care, and memory care services for seniors over the age of 60. Our building is off the 15th Street exit of Route 22, nestled between Allentown, Bethlehem, Salisbury, and Emmaus. The home is surrounded by rows of mature, tall pines which provides us a peaceful and private vantage. Our location was once a hotel but we now serve the community with our “above and beyond” senior care. Call us today and see...

Would recommend to a family or friend

This community is very good value, they have a good selection of care services, different levels of care which is what we really liked. They would go on field trips, also have organized games and bingo. Live entertainers that would come in and play during the holidays. The layout is good as well as the decor. It looks reasonably up to date.

Above & Beyond At The Knights

They had air fresheners everywhere to circulate the air and keep it smelling nice. The staff was friendly for the most part and the aids were all very nice. The food was was pretty good as well. We did think Above & Beyond At The Knights was an ok value for the price, however it was not all included care so things got pretty expensive after a while. My father lived in the downstairs memory care unit and was kicked out of the community for getting aggressive with one of the other residents. We did not feel that this was fair treatment. We felt the management was not honest with us about things, which we did not like.

Awesome place. Rooms are large and there is a homey feel. Everyone was very friendly and their philosophy on elder care is what I am looking for.

I can only tell you tha Above and Beyond failed me and my family in every way... my father was in their care along with Hospice Care and he developed a pressure sore on his foot which they described as a blister at first.... They talked about taking him for wound care but they never did.. His “blister” became infected and he became septic.... taken to the hospital and his foot was gangrene.... This wound did not develop overnight and I was never told how serious it really was.. I was only told it was a pressure sore. Everyone caring for my Father failed and everyone was negligent in the appropriate care he needed.... My father passed away a week after being taken to the hospital...

An Amazing place and an Amazing Value..

Starting right at the top with the director [name removed] I am very impressed with the hands on attention that my husband receives.. It is most amazing to find a director of such an institution so highly medically qualified. From the director down through the aides and cleaning staff they try to please and treat the dementia person with caring respect and love.. I feel as do my children that we were so very fortunate to have discovered Above and Beyond at the Knights.

Above and Beyond is exactly that!

I cam most impressed with the quality of care and compassion that all the employees demonstrate. The director who is a medical doctor herself is truly hands on .. She is absolutely a remarkable and compassionate administrator. I consider myself blest to have found this place! [Name removed]

My Apology and Gratitude to Above and Beyond at the Knights

About a year ago I wrote a review for Above and Beyond at the Knights (ABK) that today shames and embarrasses me to the bone. I want to replace it with this re-review until I can get A Place for Mom to delete the earlier one. When we first placed Mom in ABK, we were half-crazy with grief and confusion because of her sudden deterioration into aggressive dementia. I wrote a scathing review at a time when the family was in shock and we didn't know who that enraged, belligerent vicious woman was, because she certainly wasn't our Mom. But yes, she was. ABK was also not fully sure what they were going to be dealing with when she arrived, but they bravely and confidently took on the challenge. When various approaches to Mom's condition were tried and some proved difficult to balance at first, and we were being relentlessly hounded by several other facilities to place Mom with them, this is when I chose to put my fury and rage and fear for Mom into a terrible review of ABK . I should have counted to ten at least ten times before I wrote it. Gradually, everything changed. Under the laser-focussed and loving care she received from the owner, [Name removed], and her kind staff, Mom has been treated to such loving kindness and affection, such dedication to her well-being, that I will always be grateful that the team accepted her and are doing more for her than we would ever be able to do on her behalf. Mom has graduated from Memory Care to Assisted Living. The challenges of caring for our Mom are dealt with in a reasonable way, the management is made of some of the THE BEST and wisest human beings I have ever had the good fortune to encounter and to trust, and the staff are loving and buoyant despite the circumstances of caring for such a wide variety of age-related conditions and other situations that plague us as humans. I strongly suggest you not notice that ABK isn't perfect (no place on earth is, and obviously I am not either) and it doesn't look like the Taj Mahal, but the care your loved one will receive should do more for him/her and your family than you can now imagine. This place, Above and Beyond at the Knights, has a heart bigger than the building it occupies. Please give them a chance to do their best for you or your loved one. All that, and the food, prepared as you would do at home, is delicious and nutritious as well. I am now a volunteer reader at ABK and my one remaining regret is that I actually forgot that first review and should have done this re-review a LONG time ago. My humble apologies to [Name removed] and the staff and my gratitude to you as well. God bless you.

Above and Beyond at the knights

Overall after 7 months the facility is a 3 or 4 star. Clean, staff seems friendly when asked to do a service for Mom. However staff turnover is often. We can't compare to other facilities because she has only been At A&B. Her care is adequate for her needs.
