Family Thanks Crane’s Mill Concierge for Thwarting Scammers

We recently received the letter below and a link to this article on senior scammers. We are proud of our efforts and glad these scammers could be stopped.

“Our parents were independent living residents until their death in March 2017. In Dec., 2016 approximately, their address was being used in a minor role in a scam. Joyce at the front desk noticed the unusual packages arriving for them, notified the appropriate people, and the police were able to make an arrest. My sister sent this article, which reminded us all of the incident. We wanted to thank and praise Joyce again for her astute intervention. My father always said that she was very sharp – his ultimate compliment. This article made us realize how unusually fortunate we were. Thank you.”

Residents’ December Calendar Filled with Entertainment, Trips, and More

Have you seen the December Millstream calendar yet?

Mark-your-calendarThis month is filled with all sorts of activities aimed at entertaining, educating, and engaging our residents.

The month kicked off with a trip to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum to view their Gingerbread Wonderland Display, our annual horse & carriage event featuring breakfast with Santa, and the long-running tradition of the Crane’s Mill resident chorus concert and tree lighting.

Last week, residents went out to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and stayed home (in Hinmnan Hall) for performances by Women’s Song Choral, Reeds, Rhythm & All That Brass, The Belle Tones, and Vocalist Karl Marmo.

This afternoon, residents will enjoy a holiday social, and tomorrow’s white elephant party and Karickter Duet performances should be a lot of fun.

It’s really quite amazing to speak with people about aging, and how staying young at heart can be just as important as diet and exercise when it comes to “staying young.”

With that in mind, here are six quotes we found to be thought-provoking—we hope you enjoy!

“Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again.” Eleanor Roosevelt

“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.” Walt Disney

“Too many people, when they get old, think that they have to live by the calendar.” John Glenn

“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Betty Friedan

“It’s paradoxical that the idea of living a long life appeals to everyone, but the idea of getting old doesn’t appeal to anyone.” Andy Rooney

“Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.” Robert Browning
