Lakewood, New Jersey

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the opportunity to continue to live their active lives while ensuring their care requirements have been fulfilled. Daily needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are taken care of, which permits seniors more opportunities to live their lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent health care professionalls, they may always do so. There are an assortment of advantages and expenses to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the care plan: internet access, field trips, housekeeping, transportation, move-in fee, private phone, meals, and utilities. The benefits that pertain to independent living include healthcare center, community activities, concierge services, golf course, private rental hall, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

The cost of care for a community is affected by the destination where it is located. Per month, the median rent in Lakewood is $1,397 per month and the median home value in Lakewood is $303,748. The rent burden for Lakewood is around 28.0% of the average monthly income.

Demographics and Values

Lakewood has a population density of 1,556 people per square mile. The current population of Lakewood consists of 99,467 people.
