About Our Retirement Community near Toms River, NJ

We put our whole hearts into creating community.

We don’t just say we’re Lakewood, New Jersey’s premier senior living community – we live it every day. Since our doors opened in 1988, we’ve dedicated ourselves to delivering the finest, most vibrant and most secure senior living experience you’ll find in Ocean and Monmouth counties, New Jersey.

At Harrogate, you’ll find much more than maintenance-free living, fine dining, engaged staff, and desirable services and amenities. We absolutely offer all that – just as a Life Plan Community (also known as a CCRC) should.

Yet as a Life Care community, we also offer residents guaranteed access to additional levels of living, at lower-than-market rates, for life. We’ve earned a reputation for excellent health care, as evidenced by our 5-Star Quality Measures rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

And our not-for-profit status means we answer to residents, not shareholders. Our profits are reinvested in Harrogate to improve our buildings, increase staff, add new services and amenities, and enhance residents’ lives, today and in the future.
