Independent Lifestyles with Support in Cape May County, NJ

Seniors can live a free and independent life while getting the support, security and stimulation they need at our community in Ocean City. We call this lifestyle choice, “Independent Living with Support.” This is an affordable living option for older adults who need some assistance and more opportunities for socialization, but are still very mobile, active and most of all – independent. 

“Hi, I’m Brooke Chappell, the Marketing and Sales Director and can advise you on senior living options at UMC at The Shores. I help families understand their best care options for their loved ones. Please call me today with any questions you have.”

How Seniors Live Independently at The Shores

Both residents and families will feel a sense of sense of comfort, joy, and serenity upon entering UMC at The Shores. This is a lifestyle that preserves independence and dignity, while providing opportunities to make new friends and live a more active life in South Jersey. UMC at The Shores offers many activities on-site, such as exercise classes, arts and crafts, live entertainment, movie nights, bible study, resident-driven clubs, and visits to the beaches and boardwalks in Ocean City. At The Shores, our mission is for every resident to live an abundant, purposeful life, while remaining close and connected to family and friends.

Independent Seniors Love the Ocean City Lifestyle

There’s nothing quite like retirement living at the Jersey Shore. Ocean City has a string of beaches and a lively boardwalk with shops, eateries and amusement parks. If you’re feeling really adventurous, Gillian’s Wonderland Pier, a historic Ocean City amusement park offers classic rides like the Giant Wheel, Log Flume and Musik Express. If you’d rather something more low key, grab your favorite book, beach chair and umbrella and head to the beach for some much needed R&R. At UMC at The Shores, you are just a short ride away from a true shore living experience. So, what are you waiting for? See how it feels to have no household chores, no worries about your care, and many opportunities to enjoy the local lifestyle that Ocean City has to offer.
