Lantern Hill, an Erickson Senior Living-managed community in New Providence, N.J., is a popular choice for seniors who want the convenience of onsite amenities as well as the freedom to pursue hobbies and leisure activities off-campus.
Marie Power was living in Rockville, Md., in 2014 when she became a widow. Her daughter lives in Summit, N.J., and she was planning to move closer to her when Marie learned about Lantern Hill. The senior living community is located on 26 wooded acres just minutes from Summit and Morristown. After attending some events on campus, she decided it was the perfect fit. Marie first moved to an apartment in nearby Morristown in 2015 until construction was done at Lantern Hill, and she became a resident at the community in 2017.
“I was looking for an independent lifestyle with all the amenities, new friends, and no cooking!” says Marie. She got all that and more when she moved to Lantern Hill, including freedom from the kitchen. With their choice of several unique onsite dining venues, residents enjoy a vast menu of chef-prepared options cooked to order.
