Communities like Lantern Hill, an Erickson Living senior living community in New Providence, New Jersey, have become popular among seniors who wish to stay active and independent, while enjoying greater peace of mind. As a result, many communities have a growing waiting list.

What's the Priority List? More than just a waiting list, the Priority List is the only way to secure your home at a community like Lantern Hill. You don't have to be ready to move right away. In fact, most people join the list as a way to plan for the future. As a Priority List member, you can relax knowing that you have a place at the community once the time feels right.

How does it work? As a Priority List member, you're notified of available apartment homes before the general public, so you have the option to reserve, or to pass and continue to wait. There's no pressure. However, it is important to join early. Your position on the list is determined by the date you join. And as the demand for Lantern Hill grows, it's becoming vital to have an early priority date.

What are the benefits? In addition to the right of first refusal on apartment homes, you'll receive insider access and information, including invitations to educational events, seminars, parties, and more. Lantern Hill Priority List members also receive realty and moving assistance. From downsizing and packing to finding you a great local real estate agent, the community's personal moving consultant can help you every step of the way.

How do I join? At Lantern Hill, it's easy and risk-free. The $1,000 Priority List deposit is fully refundable should you change your mind. And should you decide that the time is right to move, the community will simply apply it to your entrance fee. There's also a $150-per-person application processing fee, which is not refundable.
