A Less Restrictive Assisted Living Community
At United Methodist Communities at The Shores, we match professional services with the needs of an individual rather than a “one size fits all” approach. Once a senior becomes a resident we do everything to ensure that they can remain in an apartment for as long as possible. Residents do not have to move from an apartment to secure support services, even as needs change. To support this as cost effectively as possible we offer different levels of assisted living, with many special customization possible within those levels.
Social interaction plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life of assisted living residents. We encourage residents to take advantage of the many recreational activities and social outings sponsored by The Shores. Located in Ocean City, our location provides an added opportunity for residents to enjoy a Music pier, Aquatic Center, golf course, beach, fishing, a quaint downtown area and much more.
Resident Directed Assisted Living
Unlike the rigid structure of older institutional models of care, our customizable assisted living solution allows us to support the needs and requirements of every resident. The Shores’ focus is always on the resident. Our associates get to know you and who you are, even your likes and dislikes. Together we make a truly custom life plan that puts you first. This approach fosters a nurturing environment where all residents feel cared for.
