As the name implies, an assisted living community helps its residents with the activities of daily living and medical care support, in a comfortable and private residential setting. The Shores’ assisted living is apartment style living with a less restrictive environment that enhances a person’s dignity, choice, independence, security and privacy. The overall experience is one where an individual has more options to rediscover their life and can confidently do the things they’ve always wanted to do. Our assisted living model is unique in our approach to aging in place, resident directed living, and our people, of course!
Assisted Living & Aging in Place
“Aging in place” is a less restrictive care giving model in which residents do not have to move from an apartment to secure support services, even as needs change. 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. To support this as cost effectively as possible we offer different levels of assisted living, with many special customizations possible within those levels. Additionally, the continuum of care offered at The Shores permits residents to have all of their health needs fulfilled in one place.
Resident Directed Assisted Living
Resident directed living moves the control of resident’s care from the associates to the resident. Unlike the rigid structure of older institutional models of care, 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. Our customizable assisted living solution allows us to support the needs and requirements of every resident. This includes optional personal and health care services including:
- Housekeeping & Handyman services
- Medication assistance
- Health monitoring
- Reminders for all activities of daily living
- Assistance with personal care and hygiene
- General concierge type services and more
We also feel that 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. Our location, Ocean City NJ, provides an added opportunity for residents to enjoy a Music pier, Aquatic Center, golf course, beach, fishing, a quaint downtown area and much more.
Our people make all the difference! The Shore’s staff is hired for their compassion and dedication, as well as their training and education. We sincerely believe that when you experience our peaceful seaside setting and the level of commitment and kindness that exists at The Shores assisted living community, you will not want to trust anyone else with your care or the care of a loved one.
