Staying Fit All Winter Long

January is a lovely site here at Crane’s Mill in West Caldwell, New Jersey. However, along with the beauty of the snow on the ground come a number concerns, specifically for older adults. We will cover many of these as the weather continues to grow colder, but for today, let’s focus on a fun escape from the snow: the Crane’s Mill “Horseneck Gym.”

Pictured here, and situated in Towne Square next to the heated indoor swimming pool, the gym is a popular destination for residents looking to stay fit, healthy and active. All of the equipment is geared specifically for seniors, using features such as hydraulics to ensure less impact on joints.

We have a personal trainer on staff who is available for contracted sessions. He is also on-hand Monday through Friday to assist with teaching residents how to use the gym’s equipment and answer questions.

Taste & Tour – January 17 & 31

Our thriving, independent living community offers residents a number of ways to stay active, independent, and fit while they age.

At this special event, guests will enjoy a small taste of what the community has to offer, including a look at its services, amenities, healthcare, contract options, and more. Plus, the information will all be served over a light lunch in one of our fantastic independent living apartments.

Some fun hats to ring in the New Year

Some fun hats to ring in the New Year

Our residents are ringing in the 2018 in style. First, there’s a special New Year’s Cocktail Party in Towne Square. It’s an annual tradition, complete with passed hors d’oeuvres and a raw bar with ice sculpture.

Then, dinner is served in the Candleberry Dining Room and Heartwood Cafe, where residents are welcome to bring the wine or spirit of their choice.

Finally, the night really takes off with a performance from the Dean Tomanelli Jazz Trio. Mr. Tomanelli has performed at Carnegie Hall, The Rainbow Room, The Plaza Hotel, The Waldorf Astoria, and many other famed venues. Tonight, he brings his talents back to Hinman Hall to show our residents the range of his repertoire (and maybe take some requests, too!).

We hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and more importantly, a happy, healthy, and fun year to come.

Residents’ December Calendar Filled with Entertainment, Trips, and More

Have you seen the December Millstream calendar yet?

Mark-your-calendarThis month is filled with all sorts of activities aimed at entertaining, educating, and engaging our residents.

The month kicked off with a trip to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum to view their Gingerbread Wonderland Display, our annual horse & carriage event featuring breakfast with Santa, and the long-running tradition of the Crane’s Mill resident chorus concert and tree lighting.

Last week, residents went out to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and stayed home (in Hinmnan Hall) for performances by Women’s Song Choral, Reeds, Rhythm & All That Brass, The Belle Tones, and Vocalist Karl Marmo.

This afternoon, residents will enjoy a holiday social, and tomorrow’s white elephant party and Karickter Duet performances should be a lot of fun.
