Celebrating “National Thank You Month” All January Long

After a season of giving and receiving, it’s nice to take a moment to say ‘thanks’ to our family and friends. We have a lot to be thankful for at Crane’s Mill.

January is National Thank You Month

In January, notoriously known as the coldest of winter months here in New Jersey, it’s nice to know that it has been christened “National Thank You Month.” It’s curiously placed, as Thanksgiving is not too far in our rear-view-mirrors, but we do see its merit—the holidays were filled with the spoils of presents, meals, desserts, entertainment, and much more, so perhaps January is a very good time to say ‘thanks.’

At Crane’s Mill, we’re thankful for all of the good times we had over the holiday season, including a wonderful Hanukkah dinner, many events to sing praise at Christmas, and a fun New Year’s celebration.

What are you thankful for? Send us an email to let us know—we will post our favorite responses right here on the Crane’s Mill Courier.

Asking the Right Questions When Visiting a Retirement Community

When considering any new place to call home, it’s important to have all the details you need to make an informed decision—and choosing a retirement community is no different.

Here is a short list of vital questions to ask as you visit different communities:

  • How convenient is the location? What’s around the community?
  • Is the community a true Continuing Care Retirement Community with a licensed Skilled Nursing Unit?
  • What types of contracts and financial options are available?
  • Does the community offer a Lifecare option?
  • How does the management and staff address questions and concerns from its residents?
  • Ask for a disclosure statement showing the community’s financial statements for the last 5 years. How much have fees increased?
  • Is the community all-inclusive or are there ancillary charges for certain services & amenities? Check the fine print.
  • Is the community prepared to serve its residents in case of an emergency?

Truly independent living comes from the confidence of knowing you made the best choice for your retirement.
