Sometimes individuals need specialized services following a hospital stay. Asbury Park’s Health Care Center and Green House homes are Medicare-certified for providing these services, such as physical, occupational and speech therapy and skilled nursing.
The ultimate goal is to have each individual attain and maintain as much independence as is realistically possible through a personalized program of treatments and activities.
All nursing rooms in both Nelson Hall and the Green House homes are private.
Asbury Park’s staff truly enjoy spending their day engaging with elders and providing care through compassion, dignity, and respect while allowing for the highest level of independence and freedom of choices. Asbury Park’s clinical management maintains an intentional blend of exceptionally skilled, licensed staff who have backgrounds in acute/hospital care, long term care, nursing education, surgical care, hospice management, and palliative care. This blend of knowledge and expertise offers a significant benefit to the elders and families at Asbury Park whatever their needs may be at any time of the day or night.
