Assisted Living Respite Special: Stay for 1 Week, Pay for Only 5 Nights

A Well-Deserved Break for Caregivers

Memorial Day is soon approaching, and along with this fantastic time of year comes picnics, barbecues and time with family and friends. It also marks the beginning of summer when many of us pack up and take a vacation.

Some fancy hiking around the Grand Canyon, others enjoy soaking up the sun in Cape May. Whatever your pleasure, we all deserve some time away from home to regroup, and that goes double for caregivers.

Now through December 30, 2012, Crane’s Mill is offering an Assisted Living Respite Special:
Stay for one week, pay for only five nights (based on availability, some restrictions apply). This is a wonderful opportunity for caregivers to take a few days to recharge their batteries while enjoying the peace of mind that their loved one is being cared for by the area’s top Assisted Living professionals.

Please call us at 973-276-3017 or visit the Continuing Care section of our website to learn more about our Respite Care Program and the Assisted Living Unit at Crane’s Mill.
