Ocean County Independent Living in Lakewood, New Jersey

Your opportunity, our community. Now let’s get busy.

When we say, “Worry less, live more,” we mean it. When you become a resident at our community, you enjoy all the perks of an independent living lifestyle (and there are many) minus the homeownership hassles.

Perks like spacious, maintenance-free, newly renovated apartments with numerous options in a variety of floor plans. A built-in neighborhood of friends, just outside your door. Plentiful services and amenities always at your fingertips. And endless Harrogatunities.

Join us as we embark on our $38 million expansion and renovation, in which we’re focused on one thing: meeting the wants and needs of active, engaged, retired adults.

Harroga-what? Harrogatunity.

So you’ve found the sweet spot where time, freedom and opportunity finally intersect. Now it’s time to discover or rekindle a particular passion, hobby or interest. That’s what we call Harrogatunity: It’s where your opportunity and our community meet.

Real-life examples include joining our Wine Club, or the staff of The Courier, our resident-run newspaper. Trying your talent with painting or woodworking. Gardening, volunteering, synchronized swimming.

So, look around Ocean County. You won’t find independent living that offers as much as Harrogate does – and no one else who offers Harrogatunity!

Find your fit.
