As more and more South Jerseyans contemplate a retirement that will be off the charts exhilarating, one community is pushing the possibilities to make it happen. Silverwoods Independent Living in Toms River has become the area’s most highly regarded community of its kind, and a model for modern active senior independent living, by engaging its residents with the most ambitious and socially stimulating agenda imaginable. Now they’re inviting a whole new generation of active seniors to hit the road, see the sights, boost their game, dance all night, paint the town, quench their desires, find their passion, and make the ultimate active lifestyle their own reality.

At Silverwoods, transforming the art of senior living is literally a trip. They specialize in organizing getaways to favorite destinations, and new ones, which can be enjoyed by everyone. In September, a trip to Ocean City, Maryland is planned, and in the early fall they will be going to Woodlock Pines in Pennsylvania. Trips to the Princeton Museum and the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey have become popular trips that residents look forward to revisiting again and again. Ideally situated close to the best of New Jersey attractions, longtime South Jersey residents can relish trips to BlueClaws games, Monmouth Racetrack, and a host of their favorite Jersey Shore restaurants and hot spots.

Physical and social engagement at this bustling community comes in every shape and form, with something for everyone’s tastes and talents. In the morning residents could be raising the bar on their exercise routines, and later, raising their cocktail glasses and appetizer forks with their neighbors at the most-joyous happy hour. In between, individuals can spend the day in their own fashion — taking Tai Chi classes, indoor swimming, heading off for a day of shopping, or letting loose at the center of Silverwoods’ activities universe; the Clubhouse. Here, residents face one another in an ever-expanding game world that includes Wii games, darts, and more. Hotly contested tournaments and competitions have become major events, and more are planned.

The imaginations of the Silverwoods activities staff are fueled by seniors’ zest for living, pushing them to produce bigger, bolder, and more fantastic parties, dances, road trips, and seasonal events than ever before. An authentic Hawaiian luau featuring island music and a pig roast with all the fixings is an annual event in July. Next up, Silverwoods has their annual clambake that more than one resident says, “Puts Maine to shame”. The annual Summer Pool Party is a can’t miss event enjoyed by residents, families and staff with a barbecue, outdoor games and lively entertainment.

With a special focus on social engagement, Silverwoods’ residents have more opportunities to find the fun, and experience the joy of sharing it with others. Whether sitting down at regularly scheduled card games, meeting at the Clubhouse for Saturday night movies, or joining friends for a sumptuous dinner in the dining room, the joy of new associations and friendships is part of what gives residents’ lives a wonderful purpose.

High on residents’ to do list is showing off their beautiful new garden apartment style homes to friends and family when they come to visit. Unlike institutional high-rise style facilities, Silverwoods offers five wonderfully distinctive models–with individual needs built into every layout: the Tidewater studio, the one-bedroom Mystic, the two-bedroom, two-bath Montauk, the Barnegat, a two-bedroom, one-bath residence, and the largest two-bedroom unit, the Nantucket, featuring two-baths and a separate dining room. Included in the monthly prices, which start at $1799, are many services and amenities such as chef-prepared dinner meals at the Clubhouse restaurant, bus transportation, a much heralded health program with a wellness nurse, as well as, a code alert for medical emergencies, weekly housecleaning along with an annual cleaning, an indoor heated pool, exercise room and activities. All the apartments have an enclosed porch and a covered patio. Basic cable is also provided by Silverwoods, as is inside and outside maintenance.

With all that it delivers, Silverwoods is surprisingly the most affordable senior living of its kind. Now they’re giving area seniors even more reason to move in, and leave the daily stresses of home ownership and upkeep behind. For a limited time only, Silverwoods will give new residents their first month free, a potential savings of as much as $2499.

Simply put, Silverwoods continues to get it right, creating a non-stop community where active seniors have more options and opportunities to get physical, be social, and embrace everything they love to do––even if it’s doing nothing but relaxing in the calm and comfort of their own private backyard patio.
