Lantern Hill Staff Appreciation 2023

'Tis the season for cookies, cocoa, cheer—and recognizing staff members who go above and beyond for residents at Lantern Hill, the Erickson Senior Living community in New Providence, NJ, every day!

The 2023 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF), made possible through generous donations from warm-hearted residents, will be dispersed among eligible employees to thank them for providing industry-leading services that enhance the community's engaging, worry-free lifestyle.

This year alone, Lantern Hill residents contributed $183,041 to the SAF.

"I'd like to extend a huge thank you to all the residents who contributed to the fund this year," said Executive Director Craig Karczmer. "It's the relationships between residents and staff that make Lantern Hill the vibrant, welcoming community it is."

At Lantern Hill's Staff Appreciation celebration held on December 5, Lantern Hill team members received a custom chocolate bar and had the opportunity to thank residents for the gift. In addition, staff contributed personalized messages of gratitude to the "Thank You" poster, which is currently on display in the community. 

A total of 318 employees were celebrated and received a distribution from the Fund this year.
