United Methodist Communities at The Shores, a retirement and assisted living community, located in the seaside town of Ocean City, New Jersey. Also known as America’s Greatest Family Resort, it offers a Music Pier, Aquatic Center, golf course, private airport, beach, bay, boardwalk, marinas, fishing, and a lovely downtown complete with shops and restaurants.
The Shores, completely rebuilt and renovated in 2006, has newly designed beautiful interiors, two dining rooms, bistro, library, customized fitness programs, exercise center, porches and balconies, town hall, music room, atrium, courtyards, gift shop, and chapel.
Our person-centered living philosophy creates an environment which enhances dignity, choice, independence, stability and privacy. This less restrictive model allows residents to remain in their apartments to secure support. Our goal is to keep residents in their apartments for as long as possible, even as needs change. An outstanding team of professional associates enhance the quality of life for our residents.
Additionally, The Shores’ residents benefit from the continuum of care, fulfilling all of their healthcare needs. Services include residential living; assisted living; Tapestries, memory support; respite; Bridges, hospice and palliative care; rehabilitation; Transitions, post-acute care; and long-term care. Residents can elect optional services such as medication assistance, health monitoring, housekeeping, reminders for all activities of daily living, personal care, and more. Skilled nursing is also available 24/7.
In contrast to older institutional care models, The Shores’ customizable assisted living solutions support the unique needs and requirements of every resident. We match professional services with needs, rather than a “one size fits all” approach.
The Shores’ associates always focus on residents, taking the time to truly get to know each one. This approach fosters a nurturing environment where all residents feel at home.
Social interaction plays a crucial role in improving resident quality of life. We encourage residents to take advantage of the community life offerings, such as yoga, book club, cooking demonstrations, fishing, social outings and more.
