All About Successful Aging

Crane’s Mill, a senior living community in Essex County, New Jersey, is committed to the successful aging of its residents.

The Crane’s Mill staff is continuously searching for new ways to ensure our residents are able to stay active and healthy throughout their retirement.

There are examples of this type of commitment to successful aging all around the campus. For instance, in our library, there is a Telensory Machine, which magnifies text and images in books up to 50 times their original size. This machine was brought to Crane’s Mill in part because of our resident low vision support group and their dedication to ensuring that people with vision impairment can still enjoy books, magazines, and other printed materials.

Another great example is the Hearing Loop technology installed in Hinman Hall. Here’s a link to an article that provides more details about the technology, and how Crane’s Mill uses it to keep our residents and guests “in the loop.”

We’ve heard of many more great things to come in the area of successful aging, and we’ll be sure to post about them right here on the Crane’s Mill Courier as we learn more.

It’s not unusual to have an early-to-mid-March snow storm—the old adage does say, it comes in like a Lion. Still, a late winter storm can take us by surprise, so it’s important to be prepared.

Here are some safety tips from the American Red Cross that we found helpful, and wanted to share with you.

Let’s hope the snow isn’t as bad as they’re saying, and that March is ready to shift to its gentler Lamb form very soon!

Pets Are Welcome at Crane’s Mill

Crane’s Mill is a Pet Friendly Community

Did You Know? Crane’s Mill Retirement Community in West Caldwell, NJ, gladly welcomes cats, dogs, and more in our independent living apartments and cottages.

Crane’s Mill welcomes pets in our independent living apartments and cottages.

When considering a move to a retirement community, people can be faced with a lot of decisions, like what kind of apartment or cottage should I choose, what contract type fits my budget, what personal belongings can I bring, and can I bring my pet?

Crane’s Mill has easy answers for two of those tough questions:

1. Consider a downsizing professional to help with your personal belongings. (In fact,we offer a move-in incentive to help new residents with their downsizing costs!)

2. If you have a pet, your furry friend is more than welcome in our community.

Many Crane’s Mill residents have cats, and there are even some dogs—we just ask that they are small dogs, and live on the first floor for easy access to our walking paths. In our cottages, which are freestanding from our main building, residents are welcome to have larger dogs.

Pets can be such wonderful companions. They can provide a warm, cuddly buddy while reading or watching TV, help to keep us on a regular routine, and even provide some exercise and activity when we take them on walks or have playtime.

Plus, according to multiple studies, there are measurable health benefits of pet ownership, including lower blood pressure and reduced stress, anxiety, and loneliness.

We do have some restrictions, so for full info on our pet policy, we ask that you please call us at 973-276-6700 or click here to contact us.
