Long Term / Skilled Nursing

Jersey Shore Post Acute Rehabilitation and Nursing offers long-term care and services to meet the physical and emotional needs of individuals with chronic illnesses and disabilities or who can no longer care for themselves.




Whether you or a loved one are looking for a permanent arrangement or temporary living, Jersey Shore Post Acute can offer a comfortable, professionally supervised environment with all the comforts and warmth of home. Jersey Shore Post Acute is committed to creating an atmosphere of compassion, caring and excellent nursing care.



Sometimes a caregiver needs a brief respite from the day to day responsibilities of caring for a loved one, either to rejuvenate or to take a pre-planned vacation.



If you or your loved one needs a little additional temporary medical or nursing support, Jersey Shore Post Acute provides short term respite care on a daily, weekly and/or monthly basis. During a Respite stay, short-term patients receive the same high level of care as other patients, in a safe and secure environment cared for by skilled professionals.


Jersey Shore Post Acute’s warm and comfortable environment makes it the clear choice for short or long term living.


Our facility offers all of the comforts of home combined with skilled care for every individual’s needs. Based on a resident’s need, our staff will develop a program suited to each individual. A patient will have the option to stay for short term or to make Jersey Shore their new home.

My father is loved. Good hygiene and the PT folks are kind, patient and wonderful. Dad is healing more and more each day. (Fractured sacrum, 84 years old).A special shoutout to Sara Goutter, who is absolutely irreplaceable. She has untangled all of the immense insurance confusion explaining everything clearly and with great compassion along the way.

My mother stayed here for 3 weeks following hip replacement surgery. She has dementia so she required a higher level of care. The whole staff is caring and welcoming. Her physician called me the evening she was admitted and the admissions staff, nurses, aids, social worker and PT/OT team were top notch. The facility is clean, the food is good and it even smells nice!! Most importantly, mom had a good outcome with a hip replacement at 86 years old. I was referred to Jersey Shore Sub-Acute by a friend who works in hospice care so she knows what the competitive landscape is. Highly recommend.

My husband has been a resident at JSPA three times and I cannot express my gratitude enough for the love and care their team has provided, not only my husband, but myself as well. The rehab team is an incredible group that has skilled my husband back to functional health. The nursing supervisor, George is one of a kind who provides constant care and attention to his patients. All the staff from different departments always made it a point to ensure we felt safe and were cared for. The facility is clean and I highly recommend this facility.

I'll have never been in a facility that was more caring about not only for your health but for the mine set of me being able to function outside in the real world and most of all the social worker department was the best of all I'll give this facility a 5 star ⭐ thank you for all your help everyone
I have family who recently moved in. The staff made the transition easy for her. I can't convey enough positive things about the staff and their daily attitude! There is always a smiling face and everyone is extremely helpful, no matter the request. The activities are engaging, which is wonderful to see!

I must compliment the entire staff at JSPA, a dear friend had a 6 week stay here and I would visit 5 days a week. He's 88 and was recovering from COVID. When he arrived he was weak and we didn't think he would get his strength back. The caring staff worked with him and now he's home.From the minute you walk in the staff is kind and helpful, the facility is clean and pleasant not like so many I've seen over the years. You can take your loved one here for rehab and know that they're in good hands. Kudos to the administrator for running a pleasant environment for his employees.
My father just got released today, everyone was very helpful and friendly during his recovery. PT really helped him get up and going. I appreciate ALL that helped him at Jersey Shore Post Acute
My grandfather was a recent patient and the staff was friendly and accommodating toward him , my uncle who resides there and our other family. I couldn’t be more appreciative to have had such a positive experience - thank you so much !

Just wanted to take a moment to express the gratitude my mother & I have for all of the wonderful people here at JSPA. My uncle has been here since March and the entire staff here has done such a terrific job of welcoming him into such a warm community of people that makes him feel at home. They have been attentive and patient with him while also providing the structure and routine he needs at a tumultuous time in his life. JSPA has treated him in a way you would hope a loved one of yours would be treated. We feel very grateful that he is in a place where he is seen, heard, and valued.

My mom came here after a bad UTI. She needed lots of care as having dementia the UTI hit her hard & made her more confused and also not as steady with her walking. Suzanne, Admissions Director was fabulous from day 1. She gave me so much of her time & I greatly appreciated it. Nicole at the front desk always pleasant greeted me with a big smile everyday. The nursing staff were attentive & knowledgeable especially Lovnee & George and the hard working aides patient & caring. The activities staff were always welcoming mom into their circle even tho she was only there two weeks. Robyn the director and Tiffany just fabulous people!! Honestly you hear horror stories with certain rehabs but this rehab was Wonderful. Sarah the Social worker was on top of everything & a big help and the rehab staff had a major impact on getting mom back on her feet.I gave a review of 4 stars only because I felt the hallways & rooms fell just short of being really clean which I’m sure is hard to do in any rehab situation. A little more TLC on I’d give 5 stars!

My mom has spent the last three weeks here at Jersey Shore! She loved the physical therapists, their attitude was one of encouragement & affirmation. It was nice to have all the patients cheering each other on! Loved that there is an area to sit outside on nice days! Everyone is very friendly!
