Description of Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village
If you are searching for an exceptional lifestyle filled with enthusiasm, opportunities and energy, look no further than Buffalo Valley. The lifestyle found at our community is holistic: we focus on all aspects of our residents - their mind, body and spirt. And added benefit of our community is our location, just on the outskirts of Lewisburg, which has you just minutes from the Bucknell University Golf Course and the dining along the Susquehanna River.
Buffalo Valley is one of several nonprofit communities owned by Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries. Since the 1940s we have served older adults by providing quality healthcare services and accommodations. Our mission is guided by our belief that God's command to love the neighborhood is demonstrated through acts of service.
Amongst our 54-acre campus are cottage homes that you can choose for your new home. Our two-bedroom cottages feature fully equipped kitchens, full-size washer/dryer and the option of a sunroom or covered patio. The monthly rent covers all maintenance and snow removal, which means you won't have to bring your tools or snow shovel! For peace of mind, every cottage also comes with a 24-hour emergency call system.
The Village Common at Buffalo Valley is where you will find yourself spending most of the day. It features a library an on-site beauty salon and gathering spaces. Throughout the day, its rooms are filled with residents participating in activates such as book clubs, lectures and exercise classes. Outside you can stroll through our landscaped grounds or join friends for a game of bocce ball.
When you join our community, you will find yourself having fewer to-do items because we handle many of life's responsibilities. Though you can cook meals in your cottage home, you will likely find yourself joining friends for dinner in the community dining room that features buffet-style dining. For lighter fare there is the Village Café. Other services we provide scheduled transportation for shopping and group outings.
But what our residents truly appreciate upon joining our community is knowing that we have a complete offering of healthcare services right on site. When assistance with activities of daily living is needed, our trained staff is on hand to deliver personal care services. We also offer rehabilitation services and skilled care nursing at our state-of-the-art health care center.
