If you’re like me, you don’t want to consider the fact that your parents will ever get old and need to be cared for outside of their own home. However, after visiting with the owners and employees of The Gluco Lodge Personal Care Home in Stroudsburg, I find comfort knowing there is a local facility that offers quality, loving care for our aging parents. The Perry Family has owned Gluco Lodge Personal Care Home since 1985. In 2007, a second floor was added in response to requests for more private rooms. Now, with yet another expansion completed, the Private Suite Wing, they welcomed its’ first residents, in March.
Gluco Lodge is a Personal Care Home that provides ‘age In place’ or, if the resident’s health changes, they will not have to leave to another facility for care. Now licensed for 51 Beds, the most recent expansion offers stylish, private rooms with full baths, at an affordable rate. Also in the expansion, two ‘couples suites’ were designed, so a married couple living longer can remain together. Because Gluco Lodge Personal Care Home is an ‘age in place’ facility, one spouse may decline at a different pace, but now, they can remain together while having their individual needs met.
Longevity of the residents speaks volumes. There are multiple residents who have lived at the facility for over 15 Years. Gluco Lodge truly becomes their home and families find comfort during a stressful and emotional time. The residents enjoy home-cooked meals by Executive Chef Darlene along with peaceful views of the countryside. Diane, daughter-in-law to Hap – a new resident says, “my father-in-law Hap became a resident the summer of 2017, he loves it at Gluco Lodge! The staff treat him so well and he gives great reviews to the chef. Everyone’s kind and caring ways with him go above and beyond, his transition was so pleasant.” The large and comfortable gathering spaces, daily activities, exercise classes and the salon allow the residents to stay sharp and active. Gluco Lodge Personal Care Home and the YMCA just celebrated its 10th year participating in Senior “Sittercise” with Kit Dreas ,the YMCA Group Exercise Instructor. Seniors participate in Exercise classes ranging from Yoga to Tai Chi, “we feel it is of the utmost importance to engage our residents and prevent becoming sedentary. We surround them with the ‘family feeling’ and treat them with love and respect,” says Nataley Perry, Administrator.
Gluco Lodge Personal Home Care is hosting an Open House on May 12th from 10am – 3pm. Various senior services team members will be available to answer questions provide information while you take a tour of the facility and the new wing.
