ZOOM with Chestnut Ridge at Rodale

Meet some of the future residents of Chestnut Ridge at Rodale–Phoebe’s soon-to-come 60+ retirement community in Emmaus, and learn why they’re excited about the new independent living campus!

“We always knew that a continuing care retirement community was our eventual goal. There would come a time when we would not want to worry about everyday maintenance of the house and eventuality of the need for major repairs. The newness of Chestnut Ridge, allowing us to customize our home made this a unique opportunity. In addition, the activities program, the dining and housekeeping options, and the availability of an on-site gym are just some of the amenities that interested us. Probably, more than all of this, the comfort knowing that all our needs will be tended to, regardless of the potential changes in the level of care we may need, helped us conclude that Chestnut Ridge was our choice for a future home. We eagerly await this new chapter in our life.”

“Our daughter, Vicki, works as the sales coordinator at Phoebe Allentown, and she introduced us to Chestnut Ridge last year. We feel it’s important to plan and be proactive in our self-care as we grow older. Chestnut Ridge offers many programs aimed at healthy living to help with transitions if health limitations slowly emerge for either of us. We believe this will be a good choice as we move forward, and we are excited to be a part of the community!”

“I chose Chestnut Ridge at Rodale for a maintenance-free lifestyle with amenities on site. The location of this community is also convenient to Lehigh Valley arts and cultural events. I have peace of mind knowing that there are higher levels of care available for any future medical needs.”

“I became acquainted with Phoebe communities as my in-laws resided at Phoebe Allentown for a number of years. Both my wife and I felt they received exceptional care. When learning of Chestnut Ridge at Rodale, I was offered the opportunity to return to Emmaus, a familiar place as my wife and I lived in the area when we were newly married. The apartment floor plan is spacious and the outdoor spaces allow for an additional area to relax. The flexibility for dining options is appealing as is the offering of daily activities and special events.”
