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.

Independent Retirement Living or Assisted Living—What are the Differences and Which is Right for You?

As a Continuing Care Retirement Community, Crane’s Mill in Essex County, NJ offers its residents levels of care ranging from Independent Living to Assisted Living and Memory Support to Skilled Nursing and Sub-Acute Rehab care.

What is “Independent Retirement Living”? It’s just like living in your own home, but with the added benefit of services and amenities. Included for all residents are housekeeping, transportation, maintenance, emergency response system, exercise classes, social and cultural offerings and so much more.

Also included is a flexible meal plan that covers a five-course dinner every night in the Candleberry Dining Room with the option of using your flexible meal dollars in other ways if you choose, such as breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Heartwood Cafe, food shopping at The Corner Market and coming soon, upscale cuisine at 4 five 9.

So, you need not worry about cooking, cleaning, transportation, lawn care, maintenance of any kind, appliances—truly a pampered lifestyle, but with the option of doing any or all of those things should you chose. Each apartment has a full, state-of-the-art kitchen so “foodies” can cook every meal if they choose. Those with a green thumb can join the gardening club, utilize our green house or simply keep plants on their own screened-in porch (every apartment has one).

At Crane’s Mill, life truly does become “independent” once again for seniors—you can do the things you love without the hassle of things you don’t getting in the way. Plus theres the peace of mind that should any healthcare needs arise, care is only steps away at our on-site health center.

Should a person develop the need for more care with their activities of daily living, our assisted living facility provides such care in a newly-renovated environment. The professional, courteous staff tends to the resident’s changing needs while the wonderful Crane’s Mill services and amenities are only steps away. There’s also a separate area designated specifically for those needing memory support.
