Daughter Thanks Crane’s Mill for Mother’s Care

We recently received this letter from a daughter of a former resident, and are happy and proud to share with you here:

My mother lived at Crane’s Mill for almost 10 years, and had a wonderful experience there! She did the usual progression through the different levels of care– she started out in Independent Living for several years, where she made many friends and had an active social life. She moved to Assisted Living when she had an accident and her health started failing, and then did several stints in Skilled Nursing, following various hospitalizations. Once when she was in Skilled Nursing, she was so ill that Hospice was brought in, and even that was a good experience. The staff went above and beyond to try to revive her–incredibly, she pulled through and lived another 3 years! The quality of Crane’s Mill’s facility and staff, in all phases of care, was excellent. The nurses were always warm, caring, and upbeat, even when my mother put up a fuss over taking so many pills, or doing other things she didn’t want to do. The recreational services director did an amazing job of keeping the residents occupied, playing games, showing movies, singing, doing crafts, etc. The PT staff was also wonderful—so warm and encouraging, even in the face of failing physical abilities. Even the dining staff was friendly and caring! When my mother finally passed away last October at the age of 98, I was truly touched by the outpouring of sympathy by the staff. The Director of Community Relations even came to the wake, which meant so much to me. The staff truly tries their best to make life pleasant for the residents; they took exceptional care of my mother in her final years, for which I am truly grateful. Thank you, Crane’s Mill!
