What is a Life Plan Community?
A Life Plan Community offers various levels of senior housing options and care services designed to meet residents’ specific needs. Monroe Village is a nonprofit, full-service premier Life Plan Community in Monroe Township, NJ, providing a campus setting for active, vibrant seniors. Monroe Village offers comfortable apartments as well as care services at Village Point Rehabilitation & Healthcare here on our own campus.
Where is Monroe Village located?
Monroe Village is located off North Half Acre Road (Jamesburg Half Acre Road/Route 615) in Monroe Township, approximately 1/4 mile south of Forsgate Drive in the heart of Middlesex County, NJ.
When I move to Monroe Village, do I own my independent living residence?
At Monroe Village, like all Life Plan Communities, you enter into a service agreement. This agreement gives you use of your home on the Monroe Village campus, as well as access to our array of services, amenities, and programs. It’s not a real estate transaction, so you don’t own your residence.
I’m still very active. Are there activities at Monroe Village?
There’s plenty to keep you active and engaged at Monroe Village. Not only can you continue to enjoy your current interests, but you’ll also have a myriad of new cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities to explore. Relax with a book in our library, or take a stroll through our park-like grounds. Take a trip to Atlantic City or a New Jersey museum; listen to a lecture from a Rutgers professor; or participate in woodworking, volunteering, or one of our writing and poetry groups.
What’s dining like at Monroe Village?
Dining is an experience in service and choice. Shrimp? Roast beef? The menu changes daily with a variety of meals so you never get bored. Plus, experience multiple dining locations, including our Fireside Restaurant and Village Bistro. Our chef is always coming up with great food demonstrations designed to promote nutrition, special diets, and fun.
Do you allow wine with dinner?
Aside from our complimentary happy hour, you may bring wine or beer to dinner.
Can guests stay in my home at Monroe Village?
Friends and family are welcome to visit with you. Need more room? We offer a guest room for a small fee. All visitors are registered for the safety of all residents and guests.
What does “movement through the continuum of care” mean?
If your health needs change, additional services are available right on campus. You can access companion services in your home or move to our health center. No need to move from the Monroe Village campus to access assistance, whether temporary or permanent. This is another reason why Monroe Village is such a desirable Life Plan Community in New Jersey.
What if I run out of money? How do I pay for the cost of senior living at Monroe Village?
We have a financial qualifying process that’s conservative in nature and based on your age at entry, your assets, and your income. If, through no fault of your own, you can’t make your full monthly payment, the Springpoint Foundation offers a Resident Financial Assistance program to provide financial assistance on your behalf. Springpoint has never asked a resident to leave due to inability to pay.
Is the Community pet friendly?
Pets are part of our families, so of course, we accept well behaved domestic pets.
