Even as spring slowly unfolds in New Jersey, residents of Seabrook, an Erickson Senior Living community in Tinton Falls, N.J., will tell you their active lives never slowed down during the cold winter season.

"Seabrook's maintenance-free lifestyle empowers the residents here to live their best lives year-round," says Sales Director Dan Simms. "Everything is accessible through indoor walkways, which makes living a vibrant, healthy, and stress-free retirement not only possible, but easy."

Amenities galore

With a fitness center, an indoor swimming pool, a marketplace, a library, a salon and day spa, art studios, game rooms, a theater, community gardens, an outdoor amphitheater, on-site bank, CVS store, and pharmacy just steps from each apartment home, residents appreciate the ability to stay active and engaged with neighbors.

Seabrook has 120-plus interest groups, ranging from watercolor classes to woodworking and current events discussion groups. “If you have an interest that isn’t reflected in an existing club, we make it easy for you to start one yourself,” Simms says.

With home maintenance taken care of through the monthly service package, residents appreciate having more time to pursue hobbies, new and old, and strengthen their social connections.

“Knowing they’re free of home maintenance allows them to focus on trying all the amenities and activities that Seabrook has to offer,” Simms notes. “For a lot of residents, their schedules are packed with meetings, events, and get-togethers. They have the option to be as busy - or relaxed - as they choose.”

Given the community’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and New York City, Seabrook residents also enjoy additional opportunities to explore the nearby surroundings using the shuttle service.

“Finding the right home to spend your retirement in isn’t about just amenities or affordability or the food. It’s about all of those things,” says Simms. “It’s about finding a home that offers you the most value. Among retirement living options, continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) are most likely to provide all of those things - and in one place.”

As part of Erickson Senior Living’s nationwide network of CCRCs, Seabrook functions on a “pay as you go” basis. Meaning, you cover the top-notch amenities you use today - through the monthly service package - and only pay for additional levels of care if or when you need it.

Simms also notes that quality health care is readily accessible, for any resident, at Seabrook’s on-site medical center. The center is staffed with a team of full-time physicians and nurse practitioners, who offer same-day appointments (in-person or through telehealth calls) that last at least 30 minutes - twice as long as the industry standard.

“No matter where you are in life, we want to provide the best care and resources possible,” adds Simms.

Have it your way

Seabrook’s financial structure, as well as its apartment and amenity options, is designed specifically to suit the varying needs, desires, and budgets of every resident.

For some seniors, making a homemade meal in the comfort of their own kitchen may be an enjoyable way to pass the time.

For others, not having to think about cooking and doing the dishes is a weight off their shoulders. At Seabrook, you can have it either way, which residents say is ideal.

Upgrade your apartment home kitchen at the custom design center to amplify your home cooking experience. Choose from a selection of countertops, cabinetry, fixtures, and appliances to build the kitchen of your dreams.

If you’d prefer to dine out, Seabrook’s café, coffee bar, and three restaurants offer a variety of options.

Dining that satisfies

Happy hours and restaurant-style seating spark conversation and give residents an opportunity to meet new neighbors or dine with a group of friends. And thanks to the Signature Dining program, you’re sure to enjoy a fresh, nutritious meal everywhere you dine on campus.

There’s also the occasional theme night, which features regional cuisines such as Hawaiian and Irish.

The combination of theme nights, rotating menu choices, and different service styles - à la carte, place and serve, and action station - allow residents to happily leave pots and pans behind, if they so choose.

“We’re here to customize Seabrook to your needs,” says Simms. “You’ve earned your retirement years, and we want you to live them to the fullest, as you imagined them.”
