Related Frequently Asked Questions
What is independent living at Harrogate?
Instead of supporting the activities of daily living, an independent living community is designed to free older adults from the burdens of owning and maintaining a home. Life at Harrogate is maintenance-free and offers an array of services designed to make life easier for seniors so residents can participate in our robust calendar of daily events, find new passions, and spend more time with friends, family, and grandchildren.
What is included in the cost?
The cost of independent living at Harrogate depends on your apartment. Our monthly fee includes maintenance, repairs, yard care, snow removal, and trash pickup. Life-enrichment activities and wellness programs, meal plan options, transportation, and housekeeping are also covered by the monthly fee.
What does independent living with Life Care mean?
Regardless of where you live on campus, Harrogate is your home for life. That’s guaranteed by your entrance fee. If you do need home health care or skilled nursing, you don’t have to leave Harrogate to get care. You have priority access to that care at manageable, predictable, lower than-market monthly rates. Again, all is guaranteed by your entrance fee.
Do I have to worry about any maintenance on my apartment?
No. Our maintenance staff takes care of everything inside and out. And we mean everything!
Do you offer home health care?
Yes. We offer comprehensive home health care services at Harrogate.
Do you accept pets?

Can I bring my car?
Certainly. For your added convenience, we offer transportation to shopping, doctor appointments, churches/synagogues, and other destinations around Ocean and Monmouth counties.
Are meals included?
Yes, our “Preferred Dining Choice Plan” delivers an exceptional dining experience by offering residents the freedom to purchase dining and retail options that best suit their individual lifestyles. It provides the most flexibility and value. Your monthly service fee provides for a monthly balance of dining points that can be spent in any of our three dining venues.
