Retirement is the ultimate reason to celebrate. Beyond the serene landscapes and comfortable living offered at Crestwood Manor, our retirement community invites residents to indulge in all that this close-knit community has to offer.

Retirement is a time to savor every moment and create lasting connections. We offer a variety of social activities such as weekly happy hours, game nights, and so much more! To support different social lifestyles, residents have the choice to drink alcohol on our campus. Crestwood Manor is designed to offer endless opportunities for exploration, creativity, and building meaningful friendships. Beyond the convenience of maintenance-free living and access to top-quality health care services on site, we believe in enhancing the overall quality of life by providing an atmosphere where residents can gather, share stories, and raise a toast to the richness of their experiences.

Social Delights and Community Connections at Crestwood Manor

Why should you choose a retirement community that allows the consumption of spirits? Life is about balance, and Crestwood Manor allows you to balance your free time as you please. Whether you decide to spend your evening relaxing with a good book in our community library or having a nightcap with other residents, the choice is ultimately yours, and each day you have the freedom to choose. We believe that giving residents the freedom to enjoy a beverage if they would like allows for increased socialization, which is extremely beneficial in the aging process as it helps to improve cognitive function and even reduces stress.

Having the freedom to enjoy an alcoholic beverage is one of the many ways a resident is able to maintain their independence. The members of our community are adults, and are treated as such. From weekly happy hours to casino trips, corn hole, NFL Sundays, dance classes, pickleball, and much more, there’s always something happening to help boost your spirits.

Our senior living community in Whiting, NJ also offers a vast array of activities for residents to participate in that don’t involve alcohol. Our heated indoor pool and fitness center feature instructor-lead classes so you can get the most out of your workout. From art classes in our community art studio to woodworking projects in our well-equipped shop, there’s always an enriching amenity being offered for you to explore and enjoy. You may even learn something new! See below for more activities available for you to try as a Crestwood Manor resident:
