United Methodist Communities at The Shores, a retirement and assisted living community, benefits from the seaside ambiance of Ocean City, New Jersey—America’s Greatest Family Resort. It offers a Music Pier, Aquatic Center, golf course, private airport, beach, bay, boardwalk, marinas, fishing, and lovely downtown complete with shops and restaurants. The community was completely rebuilt and renovated in 2006 and has newly designed beautiful interiors, two dining rooms, bistro, library, customized fitness programs, exercise room, porches and balconies, town hall, music room, atrium, courtyards, gift shop, and chapel.
Our person-centered living philosophy creates an environment that enhances a person’s dignity, choice, independence, stability, and privacy. This less restrictive caregiving model does not require a resident to move from an apartment to secure support. Our goal is to keep a resident in an apartment for as long as possible, even as needs change. This complements our outstanding team of professional caregivers, which enhance the quality of life for our residents.
Additionally, the continuum of care permits residents to have all of their health needs fulfilled at The Shores. Services provided include residential living, assisted living, memory support, respite, Bridges hospice care and palliative care, and Transitions, post-acute care and services. Optional personal and health care services include housekeeping, medication assistance, health monitoring, reminders for all activities of daily living, personal care, and more. For those needing a nursing home level of care, skilled nursing is also available 24/7.
