Resident Events at DevonHouse Senior Living of Allentown

December 2021

December is a special time here at DevonHouse. Music fills the air – even more than usual! – along with the aromas of delicious baked goods and holiday meals from our kitchen. There is something new and festive around every corner.

We’re excited to welcome back our favorite holiday season traditions, like walker decorating, sing-a-longs, and our holiday card exchange and social. We’re also excited to welcome performances from the Olde Towne Carolers and our much-loved weekly musical guests.

The holidays are prime time for crafts! We hope everyone will join us for the 12 Days of Craft-mas, which will feature holiday themed crafts throughout the month. As ever, we wrap up the holidays and the year with our annual New Year’s Eve party.

All of us at DevonHouse Senior Living thank you for being a part of our community throughout the year. We wish you a very happy, healthy, and safe holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you for the holidays.

November 2021

There is no shortage of notable events in November! We’re looking ahead to Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and the kickoff of the holiday season.

When it gets cold and blustery outside, we’re giving a warm (and safe) welcome to our friends, families, and volunteers inside. This month we are delighted to welcome volunteers to help us honor our resident veterans, as well as the Parkland High “strolling strings” for our musical merriment, and Lehigh Valley Therapy Dogs with our furry friends.

We have several events planned around Veterans Day, including a private luncheon for our resident veterans. Please see the calendar for details.

Thanksgiving (and the holiday season) is just around the corner! We’re ready to dig into traditional holiday favorites, DevonHouse style. As always, that includes our famous pumpkin pie!

All of us at DevonHouse Senior Living wish you a safe, happy, and healthy November.

October 2021

October breezes in with a crispness in the air and brilliant autumn colors. As the weather cools, we’re warming up! Our concert series has moved indoors where it’s nice and toasty, our menu is switching over to fall and winter favorites, and we’re welcoming back some of our favorite autumn activities.

As the month begins, we’re getting cozy with our therapy dog visitors. What’s better than a furry friend to warm up your lap? Throughout the month, warm and friendly festivities abound, like our concerts and socials. And, if all of that is a little too much warmth, every other Friday is an ice cream social – a perfect time to play it cool!

October ends with Halloween, of course, and happily, our Halloween photo booth is back! Get ready to make some great (and silly) memories at our Halloween party.

All of us at DevonHouse wish you a safe, happy, and healthy October.
