Jun 30, 2022


Moving to an independent living community like Applewood opens the door to a lifestyle filled with events, amenities, and ample time to pursue your interests. Consider the benefits you could get by joining our community of neighbors.

Real Advantages for You When you Choose Applewood’s Independent Living Neighborhood

  1. A Maintenance-Free Lifestyle. You’ll often hear us say that moving to a Continuing Care Retirement Community like Applewood unlocks a life of worry-free living. That’s because you no longer have the hassle of mowing the lawn, mulching your garden beds, or tackling the other homeownership chores that demand your time. We handle all the landscaping at our 40-acre campus. We also provide housekeeping and repair services, so you can instead focus on spending time with family, meeting up with you neighbors, and exploring Central New Jersey (and beyond).
  2. The Comforts of Home. Members of our community live in apartments or cottages featuring new kitchen appliances, solid surface counter tops, new flooring, and fresh paint. There are nearly two-dozen home styles to choose from, and each living space can be tailored to your personal tastes with the help of our home design coordinator.
  3. Plenty of Amenities. We offer lots of amenities to upgrade your lifestyle here at Applewood where residents create artwork in our studio and craft room, practice their golf swing on our driving range and 1,000-square-foot putting green, whittle away in our woodworking shop, and peruse the shelves for a good book in our library. There are card games, music lessons, a coffee bar, our own Performing Arts Center, the Culinary Institute of Applewood, and more.
  4. A Dedication to Wellness. Neighbors here participate in our Engaged Living program that focuses on supporting all aspects of each resident’s health, including physical, intellectual, emotional, social, vocational, and nutritional well-being. Residents frequent our 24-hour fitness center and take laps in our 75-foot Junior Olympic pool. Residents here also take a wellness assessment when they move in, so they can focus on ways to stay active and fit.
  5. Day Trips. There’s plenty to do here at Applewood’s campus, but there are also lots of places to explore in surrounding Monmouth County. Downtown Freehold is minutes away and boasts farmer’s markets, restaurants, and the Freehold Raceway mall. Visit the five lighthouses around the county, or travel to nearby antique shops, golf courses, museums, and historic sites.
  6. A Terrific Location. While there are lots of sights to see close to home, Applewood also has the added benefit of being centrally located in New Jersey just a short drive from New York City, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and the Jersey Shore beaches.
  7. A Comfortable and Secure Home. Applewood has round-the-clock security to make sure everything is running smoothly here on campus. We are also right down the road from CentraState Medical Center, a state-of-the-art health care facility offering a full array of services. So you can have peace of mind knowing that help is nearby in case any health care needs arise.
