Whole-Person Wellness that Enhances Your Life
At Monroe Village, our comprehensive, award-winning senior wellness program, LivWell, goes far beyond traditional senior living activities like fitness classes and Bingo. Recognized for innovation by LeadingAge New Jersey, our LivWell philosophy is “to provide the opportunity to engage in experiences which support a high quality of life, personal choice, lifelong development and an optimal sense of well-being.”
So much more than an activity program, LivWell focuses on whole-person wellness, catering to each of the seven dimensions with a deep understanding of your physical, intellectual, emotional, social, environment, spiritual and vocational needs. Our entire staff undergoes specialized training and work hand-in-hand with residents to develop our programming, ensuring all residents enjoy an engaging, stimulating life full of activities that mean the most to them.

LivWell is all about choice. At Monroe Village, our progressive approach to senior wellness gives you the choice to decide your level of engagement within the community. As part of our new resident orientation, we’ll create a unique profile utilizing tools like our Lifestyle Questionnaire to guarantee we design programming based on your specific goals right from the start. Whether you love swimming or woodworking, want to walk a 5k or dance at your granddaughter’s wedding, LivWell offers high-quality activities that will hit the mark, with noticeable strides in wellness in all seven dimensions.
We believe in providing every opportunity to allow residents to never stop learning or growing, as we know this leads to the best sense of wellbeing. Residents are key to bringing the gift of new ideas for the abundance of activities available at Monroe Village. Keep discovering, keep engaging, and live your best life.
