Independent Living

Senior-in-car-200x133Independent Living refers to a specific type of senior living. Often known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) these communities combine an independent living lifestyle with access to assisted living services, skilled nursing, and social services. They are often set up almost like a college campus and allow the resident to move into increasing levels of assistance often without changing their address.

NJ State certified CCRC communities also offer flexible financial options including programs that allow for a refundable equity payment and a lifetime care guarantee. UMH offers such a program at its Bristol Glen Community in Newton New Jersey.

Why Independent Living

Perhaps the number one reason that seniors transition from their own homes to a home at Bristol Glen living is the freedom gained, relieving you of the responsibilities and costs of maintaining a home, its contents and grounds. Downsizing eliminates the ongoing taxes, utility and maintenance costs associated with home ownership. It minimizes personal chores and errands, maximizing and allowing time to pursue other long-delayed interests and desires and to take advantage of the many on campus programs for residents. Opportunities to make new friends are harder as we age, but communities like Bristol Glen make it easy.

Security and Safety Features

In all our senior living facilities a level of security is provided. This is security in the broadest sense, protecting access to the community and its residents for sure, but also insuring that their needs and emergencies are discovered and responded to in a timely fashion.

This security includes the peace-of-mind that comes with the Bristol Glen continuum of care. Loved ones can rest easier knowing we provide multi-level assisted living, memory support residences, and a skilled nursing staff that is there 24/7.
