Cataracts are the clouding of the eye’s lens. In order for our vision to be clear, the lens, through which light travels to the retina, must also be clear. Initially, as cataracts begin to develop, you may not notice any change in your vision. But as it progresses, your vision will become blurry or cloudy, as though looking through a dirty window, and colors won’t be as bright as they once were.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week to reduce the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, depression, high blood pressure, and colon cancer. Even better, the CDC cites gardening as a moderate-intensity activity, which means that an avid gardener can catch two birds with one net and enjoy good health and a beautiful green space.
More than five million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, and while a number of breakthroughs have occurred over the past few years, there is currently no cure for this devastating disease.

Saucon Valley Manor (Hellertown, PA) and Whitehall Manor (Allentown, PA) recently became the only locally and state approved Assisted Living Facilities (ALRs) in Pennsylvania. Assisted Living Facilities allow a resident to “age in place” for a longer period of time and receive patient centered care, giving them control of their care. Assisted Living Facility certification recognizes that a community offers extra levels of care. Personal Care Facilities that seek certification as an ALR undergo a strict accreditation process that takes into account concept, construction, and levels of care offered.
