Trade Up to a Life Plan Community Instead of Downsizing

Why settle for a standard condo when a life plan community gives you so much more? Whether you’re already an apartment dweller or you’re considering downsizing from a larger home, this could be the ideal time to make a move. Discover why independent living at Fellowship Village is the smart alternative to downsizing to a smaller home if you want to cut costs, secure your future and live an inspired life today.

More for Your Money

If you’ve been rattling around in the family home now that your kids are grown or the upkeep has started to feel like a burden, you should think about putting up that “For Sale” sign pronto. While prices are currently holding steady in the face of rising interest rates, experts predict the housing market could take a downturn in the next year. Tempted to take advantage of the dip to nab a bargain condo? Assuming you can pull off the tricky timing required, there are other factors to consider. New Jersey has the highest property taxes of any state in the country, with significant increases predicted over the next decade. Independent living residents at Fellowship Village no longer have to worry about this, along with unforeseen home repair expenses. Interior and exterior maintenance, plus housekeeping and basic utilities, are included in your monthly service fee. Never again will you have a surprise bill when a pipe springs a leak.

Find Your Forever Home

With everything on one floor and a built-in support network of neighbors, apartment living can be a great option as you get older, especially if you’re single. But not all apartments are created equal. At Fellowship Village, our stunning homes are designed for aging in place. Accessible features have been seamlessly incorporated into the design, from easy-to-navigate open-plan living areas to stylishly accessible bathrooms and kitchens with up-to-date fixtures and appliances. But the most valuable perk of living here is peace of mind. A condo in the city or a 55+ community might be fine while you’re fit and active, but what will you do if you suffer a setback and require temporary or long-term care? As a Fellowship resident, assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing is available should you need it, without the stress and expense of relocating to another community.

Campus Culture

Do you crave the cultural stimulation of a large town or city but dislike the noise and chaos? Fellowship Village residents enjoy the best of both worlds. Our walkable campus, set on 72 acres, with tranquil, tree-lined streets, well-maintained lawns and 24-hour security, feels like a small town. You’ll discover outstanding facilities within easy reach. The Sieminski Theater draws residents and the public to performances by acclaimed touring acts, the New Jersey Festival Orchestra and regional theater troupes. You can also attend a lecture at the Lifelong Learning Center or gather for lively book discussions fueled by our well-stocked library. In 2023, the offerings will be further boosted by a Vibe Fitness wellness center spanning more than 6,000 square feet and featuring a mind/body spa, an indoor pool and state-of-the-art equipment.

Happier Together

According to a recent review of international data, a robust social life is one of the critical components for healthy aging. Of course, it’s possible to forge meaningful friendships anywhere, but the typical apartment building offers little to help you get to know your neighbors beyond the lobby and maybe a communal courtyard. On the other hand, the pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods and extensive facilities at Fellowship Village naturally encourage connections. Informal groups flourish, and you can choose to participate as much or as little as you like. Bond with fellow gardening enthusiasts in the greenhouse. Catch up with other keen golfers on the putting green. Enjoy stimulating conversation over cocktails and gourmet bites at Wilson’s Bar & Tapas Lounge, one of several options in our award-winning dining program. Thanks to your maintenance-free lifestyle at Fellowship Village, you’ll have plenty of time to take advantage of all the activities we offer.
