About the community Traditions of Hanover

Opportunity and choice are what Traditions of Hanover brings to seniors in the Lehigh Valley. Traditions of Hanover provides opportunity for seniors who might not be able to afford a retirement community because of its financial structure. Traditions features no entrance fees and a month to month leasing option. It provides choice for people who thought that they had to wait until they became ill or needed nursing care before they could think about making a move to downsize.

Located conveniently behind Wegmans at Rte. 512 and 22, Traditions adds an important new alternative for seniors to the Lehigh Valley. Seniors who are still able to care for themselves, seniors who want to remain in control of their own finances, and seniors who are looking for the companionship and socialization offered in a senior living community need to see the opportunity that Traditions offers and make the choice for themselves!

Jeanne B. (Jennie Reese's Daughter) - Resident/client

After my Stepfather passed away in 2018, my Mom and I went looking for a nice Assisted Living facility for her. We went to 5 different places for lunch and a tour. Traditions of Hanover had the best food, the best atmosphere and the best price for a spacious one-bedroom with a walk-in shower and all of the safety features in place. The people are all upbeat, the atmosphere is uplifting, and there are plenty of activities to partake in. The staff is excellent. My Mom loved it there. She loved playing her piano with her headphones on and making everyone laugh. She lived there for 2 years. She peacefully passed away with Hospice in her apartment in May of this year. They also have an excellent service called "Consider It Done" who came in to check on Mom every hour until the day she died. The aides took excellent care of my Mom. You will feel at ease knowing that your parents are living at Traditions of Hanover. It is by far "THE BEST ASSISTED LIVING PLACE IN THE BETHLEHEM AREA."

Above and beyond

My mom has been a resident at Traditions for nearly 9 years. She was a high functioning, independent senior and then in February had a stroke. Upon completion of her rehabilitation at 2 separate facilities, they both stated she would be unable to return to Traditions. The management team wanted us to give it a try and arranged an assessment of my mom by licensed PT and nursing as well as the home health aides they contract with. The entire team felt they could support my mom in her continued rehabilitation. Upon my mom's return to Traditions, she required frequent visits to assist her in all her daily activities. Within one week of her being there, seeing her friends, back in her own apartment, the support of Traditions staff, kitchen, housekeeping, management and the professionals, her improvement was beyond our hopes. Traditions is so much more than a senior living facility. It is a community of loving and caring people. IT IS HOME.

A friendly and welcoming community.

I am an occupational therapy student who was placed at Traditions of Hanover for my fieldwork experience. Traditions of Hanover is very much a close knit family, and you can see this throughout the day from both staff and residents. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and anyone can see how special this community is. When talking with residents, they share how important their Traditions of Hanover family is to them and how great of an impact their community has had on their overall health.

Wonderful place for mom!

Safe and secure, spotlessly clean, warm and caring staff, vibrant atmosphere and a deep sense of community. It doesn’t get better than Traditions. We moved my healthy and very independent 98-year-old mom into Traditions several weeks ago. She had been living alone for the last 40 years but the loneliness and trauma of 2020 set her back mentally and physically. She has only been at Traditions for a month but what a change! She is back to her old self again :) She is very happy and so am I!

Completely satisfied

We were very pleased with our experience with Traditions of Hanover. We chose this facility because of the sense of community and the friendliness of the staff members. They were very good with communication to both my mother in law and to us. When she needed to transition to hospice, they were extremely helpful and caring throughout that process. I would absolutely recommend them.

Best place for your loved ones

We had to move my grandpa out of his home fairly quickly . I began researching facilities close to my mom and myself, and Traditions had the best reviews. I began my correspondence with [name removed], and I expressed my need for a quick turn around. [name removed] was there for every phone call and every email, and sent me a lot of great information to look over to present to my grandpa. Fast forward almost 6 months, and my grandpa is really enjoying his new home. We love the staff and how they go above and beyond for not only their residents, but their families too. I am always greeted by name, and with a smile. I could not say enough nice things about them. It gives us a great piece of mind knowing that he is in a place with such great people. The food is great, they provide so many options to keep their residents busy, they have doctors on site, hairdressers, everything! It's all just amazing!

Happy place!

The staff members are excellent, they are very good. The food is excellent they have a chef that makes home aid pastries and pies. Our loved one gets three meals a day. None of the residents have gotten COVID, they do a great job keeping the residents safe. It is a really friendly nice place to be, we are very happy our loved one is there. Our loved one has a one bedroom very spacious apartment with a walk in bathroom. The activities at are good, they have bingo, live entertainment and cocktail hour before COVID hit

A friendly environment and culture of caring

Traditions of Hanover has become my mother's new home. She is almost 89 and every time we talk to her, she is almost giddy with excitement about the amenities, the friendly staff, and the meals. We had the unfortunate experience of moving her in as the Covid19 pandemic was beginning but the staff made a difficult situation into a calm and pleasant experience. The staff took care to ensure the safety of the existing residents by restricting the movers to staying outside. The Traditions staff brought ALL of her furniture and belongings into her new unit. They were more than accommodating and helpful. Every aspect of the move, including a lovely welcome basket, was such a positive and pleasant experience for [name removed]. My mother hasn't even had the pleasure yet of enjoying the usual culture and environment that exists without a quarantine, and she already loves Traditions. The caring culture is truly apparent throughout the building. She is already thrilled by the current limited activities, with social distancing, that Traditions is providing and she is really looking forward to enjoying the expanded schedule of activities that is the norm. Recently, a staff member facilitated a Skype call for [name removed], who was able to enjoy a face to face conversation with her daughter and granddaughter in Switzerland. [Name removed] routinely comments on the helpfulness of the staff and the friendliness of the residents. It's apparent that the residents are happy and well cared for. It has quickly become her home. We feel good about the choice our family made after careful consideration of other local Independent Living alternatives. Thank you Traditions of Hanover!

Although the Covid-19 Pandemic prevented us from making our final decision on a Senior Community to commit to, WE WERE most impressed by Traditions of Hanover overall, [name removed] and his Staff! In our visit we experienced: The Staff, Facility, Residents, Resident Programs, Dining Facilities, Resident Activity Programs, Care Management, resident morale, general atmosphere and morale! If first impressions are the most accurate, our feelings are BEST EXPRESSED in a very famous family movie: "OH AUNTIE EM, there's NO PLACE LIKE HOME [T of H]! P.S.: Please be sure to speak to [name removed] and his staff; tireless caring special people!

*Loving...kind...patient...supportive...caring ...understanding...hands on...and involved! Those are the words that immediately come to mind when I reflect on the care provided by the Traditions of Hanover team...and it is a team effort. Each and every person steps up every day to make TOH a wonderful place to live! *Smiling faces...enthusiastic spirits...and loving hearts ensure our family members are well cared for, even in the midst of Covid 19. There are daily snack...walk through happy hours...and ice cream socials to keep residents engaged while still encouraging social distancing. *On Saturday, [name removed] (Marketing Manager) hooked my m-i-l up on ZOOM so she could connect with family from Florida...Texas... MA..and PA. Some folks she was actually meeting and seeing for the first time. What a wonderful Easter celebration! *Thank You...Thank You...Thank You TOH staff!!! We greatly appreciate your dedication and hard work...your selfless giving of yourselves... and your spirit of excellence! We chose TOH in 2011...moving my m-i-l here from Boston not long after.

Thank You

My family and I want to say "THANK YOU" for everything the staff has done for my mom and the other residents at TOH during this horrible pandemic. We are so appreciative of all the hard work involved in keeping all the residents safe and occupied. The entire staff has gone above and beyond what anyone could expect. The entire staff is so kind and caring. Each staff member relates to each of the residents on a personal level. The pandemic is scary and it is a comfort to know that my mom and the other residents are in such capable hands. Thank you again and I hope to be able to see all of you soon.

TOH maintains is community character and excels during Quarantine

Dear TOH of Bethlehem and CID Family: April 2020 Thank you all, for your consistent uplifting and unified spirit and your loving concern for our family members! Your thoughtful interactions to keep all the residents occupied and safely connected makes navigating these difficult times more bearable for all. From daily snack carts and door to door birthday greetings to the resident run Easter worship service and the individual care provided by Consider it Done Caregivers- You are my eyes, hands and heart to my mom at this time when I can’t be there. I appreciate you all very much!

Traditions, An Alternate to Cruising!

My Mom has been living at Traditions for 10 years. Everyone there, both staff & residents, are like family. The staff & residents are on a first name basis & concerns are addressed within 24 hours. The Team/Staff put residents first, & this was especially noticeable during Covid 19. The Team was proactive & the facility was locked down immediately, with the residents receiving both meals in their apartments twice a day, along with afternoon snacks. They did their best to entertain & keep the resident's minds from worry. The location is in a semi-private setting with staff on site 24 hrs. everyday throughout the year. There is lots of space for walking both indoors & out. The activities are too numerous to list, including weekly trips to stores & banks. Also offered onsite: Visiting doctors, hairdressers, clergy, entertainers, physical therapists, & aides offering assistance (at reasonable rates). Dogs & cats are also welcome. The facility is clean & apartments cleaned weekly. The meals are Delicious!! Also found is a library, game room, theater, fireside lounge & bar. It is reassuring that our loved ones are in a secure environment & enjoying life to the fullest cruising at Traditions!!

Think this is my top choice- not the newest, and no balconies, but the apts are spacious & the sense of community great; several residents approached me to introduce themselves & offer very positive comments on their lives since moving here; I very much like the Aging in Place philosophy & tie in with so many health/wellness options; staff are superb
