The Value of a Cedar Crest Retirement

A Solid Investment for Northern New Jersey Seniors

Northern New Jersey is one of the most expensive regions in the nation. For a senior on a fixed retirement income, costs can quickly add up. Cedar Crest in Pompton Plains, NJ,  has designed a smart financial structure to help you manage your expenses and safeguard your future.


There Are Two Basic Costs to Life at Cedar Crest:

1. 90% Refundable Entrance Fee*

You’ll secure your independent living apartment home with a one-time 90% Refundable Entrance Fee. Should you wish to move, 90% of your deposit will be returned to you. Should you spend the rest of your life here, 90% will go to your family.

2. Monthly Service Package

One check each month includes nearly all of your daily expenses, such as property taxes, most utilities, and even one meal a day at your choice of five on-site restaurants. The cost of the Monthly Service Package remains predictable all year long.
