What You Need to Know about Our Continuing Care Retirement Community

The Atrium at Navesink Harbor is located on Riverside Avenue in downtown Red Bank near the Molly Pitcher Inn.

3. When I move to The Atrium, do I own my independent living residence?
Like all continuing care retirement communities, at The Atrium you enter into a service agreement. This agreement gives you use of your home at The Atrium, as well as access to our array of services, amenities and programs. It is not a real estate transaction, so you do not own your residence.

4. I am still very active. Are there activities at The Atrium?
There’s plenty to keep you active and engaged at The Atrium! Not only can you continue to enjoy your current interests, you will have a myriad of new cultural and recreational opportunities to explore. Curl up with a book from our library or take a stroll through our community garden.

5. What is dining like at The Atrium?
Dining is an experience in service and choice. Shrimp? Roast Beef? The menu changes daily with a variety of meals so you never get bored. Sunday brunch is a high point, with an omelet station and freshly made waffles — and it’s all included. Our Chef is always coming up with great food demonstrations designed to promote nutrition, special diets and fun! Back to top ^

9. What does “movement through the continuum of care” mean?
If your health needs change, additional services are available right on campus. You can access companion services in your home or move to the on-site health center. No need to move from The Atrium campus to access assistance, whether it is temporary or permanent. This is just another reason why The Atrium is a desirable continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in New Jersey. Back to top ^
10. What happens if I run out of money — how do I pay for the cost of senior living at The Atrium?
We have a financial qualifying process that is conservative in nature and is based on your age at entry, your assets and your income. If, through no fault of your own, you cannot make your full monthly payment, the Springpoint Senior Living Foundation offers a Resident Financial Assistance program to provide financial assistance on your behalf. Springpoint has never asked a resident to leave due to inability to pay. Back to top ^
