A CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) has different levels of living accommodations:
 
Independent Living * Assisted Living * Skilled Nursing
 
People moving to Applewood Estates are able to choose one of our 306 Independent Living residences and require no personal daily assistance but enjoy the convenient services of housekeeping, maintenance, flexible dining, transportation and the variety of events and social activities in the community.
 
If an Applewood Estates resident should need it, they can move to our Assisted Living wing just down the hall and around the corner where clinical staff provides supportive medical care and supervision in private accommodations around the clock. Residents receive meals, housekeeping, and a full program of social and cognitive appropriate activities.
 
Applewood’s Skilled Nursing Center directly above the Assisted Living section provides unlimited 24-hour nursing care and a full range of personal services tailored to each resident’s specific needs. Rehabilitation services are provided on-site by experienced physical and occupational therapists.
 
Financial Programs:
 
Applewood has a variety of financial programs which can be explained in depth by one of our experienced Lifestyle Counselors. In general, Applewood has two different types of programs: Personal Choice and Lifecare
 
Personal Choice: With the increase in the number of people with Long Term Care Insurance, Applewood’s personal choice plan is designed for them. It is initially less expensive but if assisted living or skilled care is needed, it will be provided at the going market rate when the resident moves to that wing since it is expected that their long term care insurance program will provide additional financial support to cover the cost at that time.
 
Lifecare: Applewood is pleased to be one of just a few New Jersey CCRC’s to be able to provide "Lifecare". This includes future long term care at virtually no additional cost. Should a resident with the lifecare advantage ever need to move to either Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing they are assured of quality healthcare for life for the same monthly fee they are paying independently. So no matter whether their personal health or financial situation changes, they have the peace of mind knowing their future healthcare needs will be assured. This program is not offered by most CCRCs so please call a Lifestyle Counselor at 1-800-438-0888 for further explanation.
 
Accreditation
Since 1995, Applewood Estates has been continuously accredited by the CARF- Continuing Care Accreditation Commission, the nations’ only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities. CCAC communities voluntarily meet the highest standards of excellence; submit to regular inspections; care about the residents’ well-being and staff training; and maintain financial accountability and competent administration. Nationally, only 5% of all continuing care retirement communities have met the CARF-CCAC benchmarks for accreditation.
