Celebrating Older Americans Month!

Join us in celebrating Older Americans Month!

Each May, we give thanks and celebrate a number of occasions: we’ve had dozens (and dozens and dozens!!) of floral bouquets delivered for Mother’s Day, our plants and trees are blooming, and the birds are chirping up a storm!

On top of all that, it turns out that May is also Older Americans Month! Plus, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act, aimed at promoting healthy aging and tackling serious issues that older members of our population may face, like disease and abuse.

At Crane’s Mill, residents are at the forefront of healthy aging. Each apartment is connected to Towne Square, providing indoor access to exercise classes, a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, and so much more. So, regardless of the weather, residents have access to an array of options to stay active.

A slightly further walk north (also completely indoors) takes residents to our wellness center. There, residents have access to our Wellness Director—an RN whose job is to manage the health and well-being of our independent living residents—as well as our Medical Director, an array of specialists, and even access to lab work. Imagine that—an early morning walk through our interconnected buildings to have a fasting blood test, followed by breakfast in the Heartwood Cafe!

We’re happy to celebrate this month, and are always looking for new ways to keep our residents happy, safe, and healthy as they age. To learn more about Crane’s Mill, call 973-276-6700 or click here to visit our contact page. We look forward to hearing from you!
