Independent Living

AGE-RESTRICTED RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES

Adult retirement communities are designed for those 55 (or 62) years of age or older who wish to live independently within a community of seniors. These are commonly town homes(TH), clusters of single family homes(SF) or apartments/condos (A), and may be either bought or rented. Many are advertised as"active adult" or “resort living,” organized around a golf course or club house. The monthly fee usually includes some maintenance and amenities, such as organized social and recreational programs. Social, health and transportation services are usually not included and many are not on public transportation lines. Residents are expected to be self-sufficient.

New communities are opening every year, so it is difficult to maintain a comprehensive list. Developers of new communities have an on-site sales office until all units are sold. After that, re-sales are handled through real estate agents. After hours of looking up phone numbers and websites, and then finding that many were no longer active, we have decided that we can not accurately list contact information. Look for local advertising and billboards, contact developers or real estate agents. This website may be helpful in your search: www.new-jersey-active-adult-communities.com/county/mercer.php

INDEPENDENT LIVING RENTALS

It is important to understand the differences between market rate rent, where the landlord charges what the market will bear, affordable, where rent is based on income and assets, and subsidized, which is available only to low-income people and is subsidized by government funding. All of the housing listed above is sold or rented at market rate.

WINDROWS INDEPENDENT LIVING

Windrows was a build as a Continuing Care Retirement Communities but after financial restructuring became an Independent Living Community. It is a unique Community. It is Independent Living with meals , healthcare, concierge, activities and some support services. Units are bought and sold through Realtors, but some rentals may be available.


Affordable/Subsidized

There has been much discussion of building affordable senior housing in Princeton as current options are limited. For some of the options that are available in the area, see Affordable & Subsidized Housing.
