Finding the right home to spend your retirement isn’t just about affordability. Or amenities. Or the food. It’s not just about continuing care or the size and style of your home. It’s about all of those things. It’s about finding a home that offers you the most value, which comes in many shapes and sizes.

Ray and Shirley Wagenhorst had vision when they first saw their Harrison-style two-bedroom, two-bath apartment home at Seabrook. And that’s all it took to move them from “Are we ready?” to “Let’s do this now. We’re ready.”

The tipping point

Sales Manager Phil Kaeser and Sales Associate Amy Giubilo, smiling here in front of the community, agree that Seabrook is a great place to live and work.

Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine both awarded Seabrook, an Erickson Living community in Tinton Falls, N.J., as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The ranking considered more than 76,000 employee surveys from companies with the aging services industry.

Wayne Steadman, seen here sitting at his desk in his home at Seabrook, finds time to both serve his community as Director of Living in the Community and enjoy hobbies like golf, poker, pickleball, and water aerobics.

Artist Dennis Carroll has explored painting, photography, and now, theater at Seabrook in Tinton Falls, N.J., where he lives.

“As an artist, there’s a constant impulse to explore and make art. It doesn’t stop, although it may change form.”—Dennis Carroll

Like paint on a canvas, Dennis Carroll’s medium of choice has been a series of fluid transitions, depending on life’s circumstances.

Moving mediums

Seabrook Personal Moving Consultant Laurie Williamson identified that the treasured grandfather clock would not fit in the apartment as is. Nick and Mary Ann Cammarano worked with Custom Interiors to install a pocket French door.
