Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

Get back on my feet
In the past six years when I have been in need of a little "TLC" after either surgery, a fall or just illness, Jersey Shore Center's physical and occupational therapy has helped me get back on my feet. I have ventured out into quite a few other rehab sites in Monmouth County and New York and none of them compares. The "chow" is good, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and thanks to the activities department there is something fun always happening. You have to visit Jersey Shore Center if you are ready to work after hospitalization or if you need just to get back on your feet."

Boost me up
The nurses helped me out by caring for me. The therapy team helped boost me up to get me out of here.
Good care of me
My nurse is great. She and my therapist are my favorites. They take really good care of me!
I can't tell you how happy I am that my mother is there.
A testimonial to Dr. Lessig:
"I cannot thank you enough for the stellar medical care you and the staff at Jersey Shore Center provided. More importantly, my deep gratitude and respect for the compassion and reverence with which you cared for **** and his family. You are clearly one of our medical profession's shining stars. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
A great team
Excellent nursing, great rehab, social services....a great team! I am very happy with the care.
Dedicated rehab staff
Watching her walk... it was a testimonial to how dedicated the rehab staff is to their patients and residents. It was truly beautiful to watch.
Dedication from leadership
I’m writing to praise the dedication of the entire Jersey Shore Care Center team. Every week since the pandemic started and visits were curtailed, family members have been invited to participate in a Coronavirus virtual update call. Key leadership staff have participated. I’ve been encouraged to ask questions. The Director, Dimitry Ruchaevsky has been transparent and informative. During today’s call, I wrote down something he said that resonates with me. I then asked his permission to post this quote: 'The Center is doing everything in its power to keep your loved ones safe. To work with this population you have to have compassion. Right now, we’re their extended family. We didn’t ask for COVID but we’re dealing with it the best we can. I say this from the bottom of my heart. As I always say... you can call anyone on our team here. You don’t have to wait for this weekly call.' This open communication has been a lifeline. I used to come from NYC to visit my loved one at least twice a month. I know my parent is being cared for... Thank you.
It has not been an easy few months, but the staff at Jersey Shore Center has continued to work as a team to provide the best care possible. Thank you to the nurses, social workers, rehab therapists, and activities for staying positive. Your hard work does not go unnoticed!
As an employee, I would like to thank our Center for taking care of all the Staff, & Residents during this pandemic. The safety and well-being of all who live, and work here at Jersey Shore Center has been the Centers #1 priority. I myself during this pandemic have always felt safe coming to work.
Informative, understanding and accommodating
Jersey Shore Center has done a wonderful job of protecting their residents by keeping them COVID safe. Although I am not permitted to touch my mother, I have been able to visit her with limited and distanced interaction. In addition, I have received daily general email updates about the COVID status of residents and staff. There have been Zoom communications as well. The staff has been informative, understanding and as accommodating as they could possibly be during this crazy COVID year and I am thankful my mother has been safely cared for.
Job well done
I am extremely satisfied with the long-term care my mom A.L. is receiving in Jersey Shore Center. Your staff in every department provides expert care and updates. They meet all our needs. Your organization is run well and provides me with all the info I need to manage my mom's care on my end. You also provide excellent data on the Covid situation weekly. Thank you again for a job well done."
Continue your great work!
I would just like to thank the whole staff of Genesis HealthCare of Eatontown NJ. for taking such good Care of our mom, during the coronavirus pandemic. Your diligence, care, and safety kept the residents pretty healthy. Although it has been hard not to be able to see mom as much as we would like, I know it is to keep her and everyone safe. Thank you again and continue your great work! Stay safe!"
Special care and attention
Dear Lucinda, Special THANKS to You, Sandra, Sharon, Valerie, Ian and Everyone for the Special Care & Attention you gave my Mom (Marion) over the past 4 years. During the pandemic, your Team made it easy for me to connect w/Mom via "Google Duo". From 360 miles away, I could visit her without wearing a mask! My family has many happy memories at Jersey Shore like Mom's 100th birthday. To think she made it to 102.7 (w/your help) is amazing! Please give hugs/elbow bumps to Leonee, Marie, Paulette, Dawn, Pierre, and of course Rosemary & her crew at "Mission Control". Jersey Shore is simply "The Best"!! Thanks also to Dimitry & Staff. Take good care of yourself...& each other. Remember, M-A-R-I-O-N spells LOVE. With Love & Appreciation.

Always there to help and listen.
I am Gianna's daughter Vicki Leanza. My mom has been residing there for many years. I wish she could have stayed with me however her heart condition and mental instability that went along with her cardiac issues found it impossible for me to care for my mom at home while I also have to work full time.
I have to say my mom being almost 95 , I do not have to worry knowing that she is being well taken care of. If there are any questions I need to ask the staff, nurses, aides etc, they are always there to help and listen. My mom's roommate Joanie has been with her from the beginning and we love her as if she is a member of our family. No matter what your income level is no one is made to feel less than. I cannot say enough about this nursing home and rehab facility. Thank you so much.
