Resident, Family Thank Crane’s Mill Staff for Helping Keep Passover Traditions

We received this letter about the Crane’s Mill staff and are excited to share with our readers:

My name is Margo Adelsberg and my Aunt Elaine Lieb lives at Crane’s Mill. I would like to relay my extreme thanks for helping my twelve year old son (and I) easily keep to our Passover Traditions while dining at Crane’s Mill last night.

I had called earlier in the day and spoke with Meredith at the front desk about Kosher Options available for us in the evening while we visited with my Aunt. She offered that the Chef would go shopping to purchase Kosher Meat and prepare it for us. I declined due to my son being a vegetarian, but was so appreciative of the offer. I then figured we would eat whatever we could while dining at Crane’s Mill and then come home and eat a full meal. I decided to bring a box of Matzoh that we could nibble on throughout dinner.

When we arrived to dine with my aunt, Sapna, came over and greeted us. I asked what options were a possibility to eat during dinner. I inquired about Matzoh Pizza. Sapna was so amazing that she took our box of Matzah to the kitchen and prepared Matzoh pizza for all of us. It was so delicious!

Big thanks to Meredith, Sapna and the chef for helping us feel comfortable and maintain our Passover traditions while at Crane’s Mill.

Sincerely,
Margo Adelsberg

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.
