West Caldwell Resident Grateful for Care Received at Crane’s Mill

“My beautiful mother and friend passed away in the early morning hours of Sunday, December 4, 2016. She was not at her home, nor mine. She was at her other home, Crane’s Mill.

Over the past year and a half, whenever Mom was hospitalized and needed physical and /or occupational therapy, she knew that Crane’s Mill was the place that would help her get back onto her feet, and become her independent self again. When Mom was living her last days on this earth, we had hospice care for her in the exact same room and bed that was previously hers. There was no discomfort or agitation because Crane’s Mill always kept her comfortable and safe.

There is not enough I can say about the medical care that Mom received at Crane’s Mill. Whenever I needed answers or help, they were always there to assist. Davisha Patel, the physician’s assistant, ALWAYS went above and beyond to help all of her patients and their families. She made them all feel special and safe. Davisha would visit my mom daily to explain as simply as possible whatever questions she might have had, as well as to encourage her in every way. She was a daily dose of that “special medicine” that mom needed, and I must admit that I needed too! She truly cared and it shone in everything that she did.

I will be eternally grateful to everyone at Crane’s Mill for making those difficult times less difficult and easier to bear for me and my entire family.”

Caldwell Resident Thanks Crane’s Mill

The following appeared in this week’s edition of The Progress newspaper. To read more, be sure to check out our running “testimonials” web page.

EDITOR: I was hospitalized this past May, and needed sub-acute rehabilitation. While I did not know what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised. I arrived at Crane’s Mill and was given a nice room with a window view.

I spent nearly a month at the Health Center, and I found the staff to be very professional.

One employee in particular was especially wonderful – Pat Wilson, in the dietary department. She made me the most delicious meals, and went out of her way to insure my diet was low-salt. She had a genuine concern for all of the people and always had a smile and a kind word.

I want to thank everyone for helping me during my recovery, and would recommend the Crane’s Mill Health Center.

West Caldwell Resident Thanks Crane’s Mill for Efforts

The following letter appeared in a recent edition of The Progress newspaper. We were so happy and proud to read another letter touting our Health Center’s exceptional care. To see more, click here to visit our testimonials page.

While many individuals living in the area may think of Crane’s Mill as a retirement community for independent living, there is also a wonderful Health Center that is part of Crane’s Mill.

Thanks to the Health Center, I have the peace of mind knowing that my mother had another very positive experience during her rehabilitation at Crane’s Mill – and this has been her third visit within two years.

We were pleased that the medical team was always available and answered all of my questions, as well as listened to my suggestions. While we found all of the staff to be professional and caring, one of my mother’s nurses, in particular, Djemila, always had a smile on her face, and whenever I needed assistance she would say, “I can do that for you,” whether it was her job or not. She was always there to help in any way possible. She is not only a wonderful nurse, but a beautiful human being. Another employee, Pat, from the dietary department always went above and beyond to help mom with her meals and her specific diet.

As you can probably surmise, we had a very positive experience, and I wanted to commend the staff for all that they do.
