Housekeeping at Crane’s Mill: Fully Included and Always Friendly

At Crane’s Mill Continuing Care Retirement Community in West Caldwell, New Jersey, housekeeping is fully included for every resident.

Housekeeping is included for all Crane’s Mill residents

Crane’s Mill is an all-inclusive style retirement community. What that means for our residents is that amenities like dining, transportation, and live entertainment are fully included—akin to an all-inclusive vacation, there’s no need to carry extra cash.

What may surprise you is that housekeeping is also fully included. Every other week, at a scheduled time, a member of our environmental services staff visits your apartment or cottage for a general housekeeping session, and typically some friendly conversation.

Also, once each year, there is an “annual cleaning” for every apartment, which involves extra staff members and includes moving furniture and cleaning exterior sliding doors, just to name a few items on the long checklist.

So, when you consider a move to a retirement community, make sure you know what’s included—and what is extra—so you can make an informed decision about your future.

The Crane’s Mill Bus ready to roll

People see it everywhere … around town and beyond. It’s the Crane’s Mill bus! A friendly driver and our happy residents are on board, buzzing around for errands or just for fun. Make sure to wave next time you see them go by!

Inside the Crane’s Mill Woodworking Shop

Did you know that Crane’s Mill residents enjoy their very own woodworking shop?

Crane’s Mill residents enjoy their very own woodworking shop.

The tradition continues at Crane’s Mill!

Behind an unassuming (locked) door next to our beauty salon/barber shop and across from our activities room, the woodworking shop provides our residents a dedicated space for everything from simple whittling to complex builds.

Since 1998, the shop has produced all sorts of resident-made treasures—our library’s bookshelves, the walking trail’s duck boxes, and furniture throughout the campus, to name a few—that stand proud today, and that we are sure to enjoy for years to come.

The shop includes complex power tools, hand tools, all sorts of wood, plus paints, stains, and glues to complete any project.

Are you a woodworker? Have you produced something you’d like to share with our readers? Click here to send us an email, and we just might feature your work in a future Crane’s Mill Courier article!
