Spring has come to Ocean County ahead of schedule. At Silverwoods Independent Living in Toms River, residents are busily engaged in all sorts of activity, none of which includes lawn mowing, hedge trimming, or clearing fallen trees and branches. It’s especially at springtime that vibrant seniors, tired of the daily hassles of maintaining a home and a yard, can fall in love with a gated garden community as life enriching and maintenance-free as Silverwoods.

Here, the joys of spring are defined by the residents who experience them. For many, it’s the freedom and individuality felt while relaxing on the covered porches and patios of their private and spacious one-story garden style homes. Gardening enthusiasts and beginners alike describe a sense of accomplishment that comes from transforming ready and waiting outdoor spaces into pride-filled flower and vegetable gardens. Or it can be the simple joy of escaping a spring shower for the eventful clubhouse where exercise classes, billiard games, tasty meals with friends in the dining room, or a dip in the heated indoor pool are just some of the pleasurable pursuits.

Catering to residents physical, emotional, social, and cultural needs is a year round experience at Silverwoods. However, warmer days bring new possibilities to an already activity-packed calendar of events.

Off-campus trips, which are major social events throughout the year, take advantage of the season and Silverwoods’ proximity to the best of South Jersey. Antiquing in Point Pleasant, outings to nearby wineries and farms, visits to the Seaside Park boardwalk, Island Heights, and favorite restaurants like The Shrimp Box and Crab’s Claw are just some of the fun and flavorful spring-themed outings on the schedule.

In this idyllic setting, value-conscious seniors with the most discriminating tastes get the best of all worlds. “Although our community is small and intimate, our apartments by far are the largest and least expensive in all of Ocean County”, says Silverwood’s longtime Administrator, Katie Davis. “Our apartments are the perfect blend of combining the comforts of home and the appeal of an extended family.” Other advantages include one monthly fee that covers all of Silverwoods’ services, amenities and features, and a central location, which keeps residents close to old friends, loved ones, shopping, banking, houses of worship, and the Jersey Shore they grew up with of vacationed at throughout their lives.

Spring is a time of rebirth. This is abundantly true too, at Silverwoods, where far from the daily stresses that come with maintaining a big home, active and independent seniors are reborn. With time and energy to enjoy a world of activities, build new friendships, and benefit from 24/7 devotion to their physical well being and social happiness, Silverwoods’ residents can live the relaxed lifestyle to the fullest.

Part of a continuum-of-care campus in Toms River, Silverwoods is one of the areas first and most highly regarded independent living residences. Delivering a high level of service, stressing independence, building long-term relationships with residents and families, and promoting active lifestyles, has created a new standard for affordable senior living.
