Nursing Homes in NJ – Full Service Communities

Skilled nursing comprises the most intensive and highest care level at four of United Methodist Homes’ full-service communities: The Homes offers skilled nursing care at Collingswood Manor in Collingswood, Pitman Manor in Pitman, The Shores at Wesley Manor in Ocean City and Bristol Glen in Newton. These settings offer custodial and skilled nursing care and treatment from licensed nurses 24 hours a day. Skilled nursing does not include palliative or hospice care services.

Skilled Nursing is appropriate for individuals with complex and potentially serious medical conditions such as wound dressings, rehabilitation, tube feedings, or rapidly changing health status or persistent health issues, which cannot be managed at home or in other settings. Sometimes individuals require skilled nursing on a temporary basis due to an injury or illness.

Some of the more common conditions treated in skilled nursing include post-operative wounds, stroke, injuries, diabetes, infections, Alzheimer’s, cardio-vascular ailments, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, or respiratory ailments.

Additional skilled nursing services include:

  • Pharmaceutical and Laboratory Services
  • Social and Educational Activities
  • Laundry Services
  • Limited Transportation
  • Personal Care: Bathing, Dressing, Personal Hygiene, Eating, Maneuvering In and Out of Bed and/or Walking, Incontinence

Skilled nursing personnel includes registered and licensed practicing nurses; certified nursing assistants; and physical, speech and occupational therapists.  The team works together cooperatively to promote recovery and manage, maintain and improve function. Depending on the residents’ health status, their activities may include observation, evaluation, monitoring, testing and measurement, developing care plans, and more.

All organizations conducting nursing care are licensed, inspected and regulated by their state’s Department of Health Services; in this case, by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.
