Healthy Senior Living at Cedar Crest

Live Independently in Northern New Jersey

Health and wellness are woven into the fabric of life at Cedar Crest. Here, you gain more than just an on-site medical center—you gain a wealth of amenities to keep you active and independent.

Here are just a few of the healthy benefits at our Northern New Jersey retirement community:

  • Water fitness. Whether you love water aerobics or lap swimming, the indoor pool is the perfect place to have fun while staying fit.
  • Nutritious meals. The chefs at our five on-site restaurants consider your dietary needs, along with fresh ingredients and bold flavors.
  • Fitness center. Our well-equipped fitness center is staffed by personal trainers to help you build the perfect workout regime.
  • 100-plus activities. Cedar Crest boasts a wealth of clubs and classes to help you stay fit in mind as well as body.  
  • A walkable campus. Walk or bike along the paved outdoor paths or take a brisk indoor stroll through the climate-controlled walkways connecting most every building on campus.

I like all the exercise classes that keep you agile. I take Zumba and other cardio classes. Having a fitness center on campus is ideal.
