At The Knights

Home Is Right Around The Corner

Conveniently located right off the 15th Street exit of Route 22 and nestled between Allentown, Bethlehem, Salisbury, and Emmaus making an easy commute to come and visit anytime. At The Knights has an interesting history with the initial intention of being built to serve as a hotel therefore giving it some of the largest amenities. At The Knights has continued to grow through the years to meet the needs of various owners, residents and the families they served.

Our Accomodations

Both our Personal Care/Assistive Living and Memory Care floors offer large, spacious apartments that include their own private bathrooms with walk in showers, higher raised toilet seats, handle bars, etc. They can either be set up as a private or friendship style. Mealtimes are spent in our open concept dining room with full service waiters and waitresses with all meals being prepared on-site. Relax in one of our two common areas, library or front porch while enjoying some coffee, hot tea or iced tea etc. Take your pick of the many activities available in the community, or sign up for some of the trips off-site for even more fun.

A Walk Down Memory Lane

We have a smaller enclosed Memory Care floor specifically designed for those who have dementia or Alzheimer’s. Memory Lane has its own dining room, activity area, wing of apartments, as well as a private fenced patio with raised garden beds to please all the senses. Our locked and secured Memory Care with coded exits and entrances helps to prevent getting lost easily or wander outside. The smaller floor makes it easier for those residents to go where they want to safely, without being overwhelmed.

Life At The Knights

Come make new friends during meals in the spacious dining rooms. Sip on a cup of coffee in the library or dance to some Big Band music with your honey in the lounge. Church services are offered weekly, with several local churches visiting our residents. Friday afternoons offer an opportunity to share snacks and drinks during “Happy Hour”, although we never limit “happy” to only one “hour”. Many residents enjoy BINGO, card games, or other games,and they enjoy it more when they WIN! Our wheelchair accessible bus takes residents on local shopping, dining, and casino trips and more!

Safety

  • Pendants

    Our residents are assigned a pendant to wear when they move in.  This pendant can be pressed to request assistance from the staff, and is linked to the resident’s room number.

  • Bathroom & Shower Call Stations

    Our bathrooms and shower rooms are equiped with emergency call stations, easily activated by pulling a cord, to summons the staff quickly.

  • Locked/Secured Memory Care

    Our locked and secured memory care has coded entrances and exits for the protection of our residents who have dementia or Alzheimer’s.

  • Pager system

    Our direct care staff (called “PCA’s) carry pagers, which notify them of pendant calls, emergency calls, or wander guard alerts. With this system, all the staff can rapidly respond to calls and emergencies.

  • Fire Safety

    If the unexpected happens, our building is equiped with a fire alarm system with pull stations and extinguishers located throughout the home. We also have a building-wide sprinkler system, and full fire suppression system in our kitchens.

    All staff are trained about fire prevention and evacuation on their first day, and at least annually afterward. Finally, our building has monthly fire drills, which everyone (staff and residents) is required to participate in.
