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.
