 United Methodist Communities at The Shores provides around the clock skilled nursing (also known as long-term care) for frail or medically complex residents. The continuum of care allows for a graceful transition from assisted living within the same community. 

Some common conditions appropriate for skilled nursing include post-operative wounds, stroke, injuries, diabetes, infections, Alzheimer’s, cardio-vascular ailments, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, or respiratory ailments. 

Our team of licensed nurses, certified aides and therapists deliver this skilled nursing, broadly referred to as long-term care.

What is Long-Term Care

Long-term care comprises custodial and skilled nursing and medical treatment from licensed nurses 24 hours a day.

Sometimes individuals require skilled nursing on a temporary basis due to an injury or illness, however, it is also appropriate for individuals with medical needs including: 

  • Wound dressings
  • Breathing rehabilitation
  • Tube feedings
  • Rapidly changing health status
  • Health issues which cannot be managed at home 

Administering Long-Term Care

All nursing care organizations are licensed, inspected and regulated by their state governments; the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services is the authority in New Jersey.


Skilled nursing personnel include registered nurses; certified nursing assistants; and physical, speech and occupational therapists.  This team cooperatively promotes recovery and manages, maintains and improves function and quality of life. Care plans are highly individualized and incorporate the unique goals and capabilities of residents and their families.
