The Benefits of In-Town Independent Living at Village Apartments

Imagine having a range of activities to indulge in right at home . . . yet be just blocks away from a quaint walking downtown with plenty to see and do, and town conveniences close by. It’s the type of retirement living many older adults are seeking today, in a rental community that offers programs, activities, and on-site amenities geared to an active lifestyle.

Residents at Village Apartments of the Jewish Federation enjoy the benefits of an independent lifestyle in a comfortable community with plenty happening right on site—and within walking distance of vibrant downtown South Orange Village.

The rental community is in the heart of South Orange but there’s always something happening right at home. There’s a full monthly schedule of creative arts and cultural programs, lectures, exercise classes, movies, outings and more. Every week, there are opportunities to try something new with neighbors.

Residents are enjoying the new multi-purpose community room with its computer lab, fitness center, movie screening area and fireside lounge area; they can also grab a good book from the community library (or head over to the South Orange Public Library); or attend a lecture, hear some good music, or create an art project. In nice weather, the colorfully landscaped courtyard is a popular place to congregate and relax. And, with optional kosher meals three afternoons a week, residents have opportunities to chat over delicious food as well.

Village Apartments is a short walk or drive to the South Orange Performing Arts Center and public transportation to New York. Residents can meet friends at a bistro, browse the boutiques and run their daily errands with ease. Plus, the South Orange Jitney is available to take residents to the downtown area and Village Apartments offers transportation to local shopping and other destinations.

Area seniors are welcome to join residents for the popular current events discussion group and knitting club that meet at 2:00 and 4:00 on Wednesday afternoons, and cultural and educational programs held on Tuesdays. Check our online calendar for a list of programs and see what’s happening at Village Apartments. You can also see floor plans and read about our new luxury apartments with many contemporary features.
