Happy to Have Moved to Crane’s Mill

We are happy to share this wonderful letter-to-the-editor of The Progress from one of our residents. The letter discusses the importance of having a licensed Skilled Nursing/Sub-acute rehab area on the Crane’s Mill Campus.


Ten years ago, my husband and I sold our home in Livingston, and moved to Crane’s Mill. At the time, we were getting ready to retire, and wanted to live in an active, vibrant senior community in the West Essex area. It’s been a wonderful experience.

Our independent apartment is spacious and comfortable, and we have all the amenities. Until this past December, I didn’t realize what an important role the Crane’s Mill Health Center would play in our lives here.

I had a complicated health issue during the holidays, and was hospitalized for an extended period of time.

When I was discharged, I was too ill to return to our apartment, so I spent several months recuperating in the skilled nursing/subacute rehab area of the Crane’s Mill Health Center.

There, I received many kindnesses, good care by a great staff who encouraged me.

I also was able to see my husband and my friends who visited me daily.

I am very grateful that we had the foresight to move here 10 years ago.
