  • New: When a beloved mother or father spends extended time in a nursing center, it is not uncommon for the children to “adopt” other residents and develop a genuine sense of family for the whole neighborhood. After all, how could you visit week after week and not get close to your parents’ neighbors and friends a few feet away? This sense of larger family lasts until the end of life, and it concludes with shared grief and, sometimes, celebration. Recently, the devoted family of Raymond Peregoy, who had passed away on our Sun Valley neighborhood, did something truly extraordinary. They joined [...]read more >
  • Old: Every summer our two local newspapers, the Evening Sun and the Gettysburg Times, organize popularity polls for area businesses. Winners are selected in many categories through two rounds of voting. It is our pleasure to announce that we have won – again – the top spot in both contests. The Evening Sun’s readers gave us the Readers’ Choice Award in the Senior Care/Living category, and the readers of the Gettysburg Times called us the Pick of the Counties in the Senior Living Category. Unlike Hollywood actors or New York Times best-selling authors, we need to keep earning those awards… even [...]read more >

  • Old: A solid Lifelong Learning program is an essential element of what residents in a retirement community can expect as part of a proactive healthy-aging program. Accordingly, Cross Keys Village has offered various classes and lectures for years to its large population of residential Villagers to keep their minds engaged and stimulated. However, this summer we took a big step forward with the creation of a new position for us: the Director of Life Enrichment. We are truly blessed that Dr. Cynthia “Cindy” Drenovsky filled the position and joined our team in early August. Cindy came to us with over 26 [...]read more >

  • Old: After our Director of Memory Support Jennifer Holcomb wrote You Are Not Alone on this blog, almost two years ago, the importance of her activities specifically geared towards caregivers continued to increase significantly. The Early Stage Support Group, which she created in collaboration with Hanover Hospital and the Alzheimer’s Association was such a success that it has become a twice-a-year tradition. This coming fall, the 8-session series will start on September 18 and continue until November 6. Registration is open until September 8 for this free yet invaluable training.     Many of the Early Stage Support Group graduates turned into a close-knit group of [...]read more >

  • Old: During the night of July 15, SpiriTrust Lutheran – The Village at Sprenkle Drive, in nearby York, experienced a water line break in their nursing home, with damage so severe that they needed to evacuate. SpiriTrust operates a handful of fine villages in our region, and they were able to find accommodations in their own nursing homes for more than half of the 98 affected residents… but not all. Cross Keys Village has always maintained a friendly working relationship with SpiriTrust, so that when they contacted us around 5:00am on July 16, asking whether there was “room at the inn,” [...]read more >

  • New: It would be a pointless exercise to compare and to rank life-altering diagnoses, but a diagnosis of dementia can be cruelest of all in how it affects the present, the future… and even the past. When a father progressively fails to recognize his adult daughter, for instance, the daughter herself may feel that whole albums of her own memories are being tossed onto a dust heap, raising painful questions about mind, spirit, identity and consciousness. At such times, leaning on one’s faith can be a powerful resource. Time, as measured by calendars and clocks, accentuates the pain associated with neurocognitive [...]read more >
  • Old: Cross Keys Village is happy to announce a new phase to its Bridgewater expansion. The Garden Homes that were introduced as a new concept in 2015 have been well received and continue to attract keen interest. We recently completed a Market Study confirming that today’s retirees are willing to consider moving to a senior living community… as long as they can do so without compromising the comfort and the breathing space they are accustomed to in their current residence. After considering the data, our board of directors approved the construction, starting this fall, of 18 new Garden Homes expected to be [...]read more >

  • Old: Cross Keys Village leaders had no way of knowing, back in the spring of 2008, that the Butterfly Release by the pond would become a community tradition as well as a great way to enjoy spring weather with family and friends. Releasing a butterfly (usually in memory of a departed loved one) is a special experience, especially when they take their time to warm up their wings in the sunlight before taking flight, lingering a moment amongst the crowd, and floating into the trees. Over the years, the event has become increasingly family-centered, with activities such as face painting and live [...]read more >

  • Old: As a provider of services for seniors, including some frail seniors, Cross Keys Village is keenly conscious of the need to preserve and to foster the dignity of the population we serve. The dignity of seniors – just like the dignity of other groups – is a concept that is constantly changing. A husband opening a car door for his wife was once a sign of respect. Today, most wives would be happier with an offer to share house chores fairly. The concept of dignity evolves… and we need to follow, or better yet, to lead. Cross Keys Village has [...]read more >

  • Old: Cross Keys Village is proud to be one of the few providers in our region now offering Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT). LSVT is a program that is shared between Speech Therapy (LSVT LOUD) and Occupational Therapy (LSVT BIG), and designed to treat voice and speech disorders in people with Parkinson’s disease. The decision to start this program came to our Director of Rehab, Jayne Whitman, after several of our Villagers came back from consultations at Johns Hopkins with prescriptions for this innovative treatment.

  • Old: A few days ago, we got a message on Facebook from a local businessman, Jason Stokes, owner of S & J Automotive in New Oxford. But he didn’t offer to service our fleet of vans and shuttles. No, instead he asked us how many ladies live in our Health Care Center so that he could – with our permission – bring each one of them a rose for Valentine’s Day. Kind gestures from strangers are not unusual at Cross Keys Village, but this was truly unexpected and out of the ordinary. Jason explained to us that he has done this [...]read more >

  • Old: With more than 1,600 “Likes” and a daily post, the Cross Keys Village Facebook page is a great way for friends to keep a finger on the pulse of the community. Our Facebook visitors occasionally ask for a “price range,” which is available for all business pages. However, Facebook limits the options for their “price range” feature to $, $$, and $$$, as if we were a restaurant. So… which is it for Cross Keys Village, $, $$, or $$$? As people say these days, it’s complicated, or – even more confusingly – all of the above! Undeniably, senior living is not a [...]read more >

  • New: No message says: “We are thinking of you and praying for you” more clearly than a special gift, crafted with love by the Cross Keys Village Quilters. “Our quilters hand make beautiful quilts for every resident who comes to the Health Care Center,” says Mary Van Buren, Director of Community Life. “I’ve noticed so many of our residents with their quilts, and they truly cherish this unique and thoughtful gift.” Originally formed in 2006, the volunteer group decided in September 2008 to start quilting for those being admitted to our own community. Since that time, the quilters have given appr
  • Old: The people who call Cross Keys Village home have always enjoyed music in many forms. Villagers are invited to join three musical ensembles; sing-alongs take place regularly; and various concerts, covering all musical styles, keep everyone’s calendar full. However, during the last few weeks, music has brought us one new face on campus, that of Music Therapist Pauline Jarvie. Pauline’s work here is yet another out-of-the-box idea from Director of Community Life Mary Van Buren, and the idea has caught on right away. “Music Therapy is nothing like music performance or music appreciation,” Pau
