Ralph and Evelyn Bumbaca chose a one-bedroom, Brighton-style apartment home when they moved to Seabrook from Toms River, N.J.

Seabrook’s wide variety of floor plans make it an affordable retirement living option for a range of budgets.

Visit Seabrook for a priority list event, and you might meet the smiling face of Carol Bicket, resident ambassador.

With Seabrook at near-complete occupancy, apartment homes are a hot commodity when they become available. One special group of people is privy to those that open up before anyone else.

David and Becky Nation own two eco-friendly vehicles—a Prius Prime plug-in hybrid and a pure electric Nissan Leaf. They used to charge their cars at local motels and stores ranging from 4 to 19 miles away from their home at Riderwood. They would have to fill the time by running errands or eating a meal while their vehicles charged.

It is admirable to speak out for equality and social justice. However, it is truly courageous to actually put yourself—or your career and reputation—on the line in order to stand up for what you believe is right.

Jupie Seaholm, who lives at Maris Grove with her husband Jim and dog Flicka, plays what’s called a healing or therapy harp. She owns two such instruments, this floor harp and a smaller Irish harp.

What will you do when you retire? Many folks have only vague ideas.
