Whether you've already reached your 'golden years' or not, it doesn't have to show.
 
As a provider of various health and social services for seniors, we see the benefits, first-hand, of  staying active and engaged.  By exercising your body and your brain everyday, you're likely to keep everyone guessing what age you are. It's just a number anyway, isn't it?
  
TRY SOMETHING NEW! Download a new game on your phone, try learning a new language, or take an art class with some friends. Reach out to local resources to help keep your calendar full of exciting activities.
INTO THE LOVING ARMS OF A FOREVER FAMILY
Giving Children in Foster Care a Forever Hug.
Do we take them for granted? When you give or get a big squeeze to or from someone who loves you unconditionally - it makes everything better. Can you imagine not ever getting one of those kind of hugs before?
  
If you've ever considered opening your home to a child in need--and wondered if it would make a difference--just remember how great a hug makes you feel .... and then you'll know.

If you're considering adoption, join us to learn more about LSMNJ's Waiting Child Program.
PET FRIENDLY = HAPPY RESIDENTS
 

Many of LSMNJ's programs proudly welcome pets and the therapeutic benefits they provide to our residents. Research shows that pet interaction can improve their overall well-being by reducing stress levels, lowering blood pressure, increasing exercise, and boosting activity levels.  Studies also show that pets have helped reduce agitation and confusion in those individuals with Alzheimer's Disease.

 

LSMNJ encourages a pet-friendly environment by working with local pet therapy programs that bring four-legged visitors to interact with residents at both Crane's Mill and Lutheran Crossings. For independent and assisted living residents and those living in LSMNJ affordable senior housing locations, pet companions are also welcome*. (*Some restrictions apply, so always ask to see our Pet Policy at each facility)
