Brick, NJ –– Shorrock Gardens Care Center continues to build on its reputation of providing the area’s most comprehensive, highest quality post-hospital rehabilitation and sub-acute senior care, by seeking out the highly skilled professionals who can deliver it. To that point, Shorrock Gardens announced it is welcoming two new physiatrists to their team of dedicated senior care professionals; Talya Fleming, MD, Fellow-AAPMR, Diplomate-ABPMR, and RaShonda Flowers, MD.

“We are thrilled to have the clinical expertise of Dr. Fleming and Dr. Flowers spearheading our rehabilitation program” says Administrator Ronald Denti. “Being able to enhance our program by adding another layer of service means our residents will be the beneficiaries of exceptional care and clinical oversight.”


As highly-regarded and experienced physiatrists, or rehabilitation physicians, Fleming and Flowers will impact the lives of the many seniors who come to Shorrock Gardens for transitional care – the care needed when your loved one is discharged from the hospital, but not yet physically or emotionally ready to go home.

Shorrock Gardens accepts patients from all nearby hospitals, treating the most extraordinary transitional care needs. The new physiatrists will be charged with putting the pieces of these patients’ lives back together after surgery, injury or disease — by developing comprehensive programs devoted to the entire healing process- medically, socially, emotionally, and vocationally.

Dr. Fleming is a New Jersey native. She completed he undergraduate degree at Rutgers University, and graduated from UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, New Jersey. Board certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and a member of the American Medical Association, Dr. Fleming most recently spent three years working at Shore Rehabilitation Institute/Ocean Medical Center in Brick, New Jersey gaining expertise in the management of neurologic, orthopedic and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation.

Dr. Flowers is Board Certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, obtaining her Medical Degree from UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. A member of such notable medical associations as the American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and the American Medical Association, Dr. Flowers is highly trained to treat back pain, joint and muscle pain, nerve pain such as radiculopathy and neuropathy, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, spasticity and stroke.

Both Dr. Fleming and Dr. Flowers have a special understanding of the needs of the geriatric patient, and working in unison will complement Shorrock Gardens’ long-standing team of professionals, who every day deliver one person at a time devotion. This individual attention includes helping patients who need to build up muscle strength following a long hospital stay or after a fall, delivering compassionate care to loved ones following chemotherapy or radiation therapy, treating patients with temporary confusion following surgery requiring general anesthesia, and connecting patients with pain management and orthopedic rehabilitation following a fracture.

Shorrock Gardens Care Center is one of Ocean County’s leading multi-purpose nursing care facilities, offering area residents a variety of healthcare services and a broad continuum of care, including short-term post-hospital rehabilitative care, traditional long-term care, secure memory care units, and an attached Alzheimer’s Assisted Living residence called The Haven at Shorrock Gardens.
