For those families seeking the perfect nursing care facility for a senior loved one facing a long or short-term health crisis, the New Jersey Department of Health may have just made this toughest of decisions a whole lot easier. In its most recent survey, they awarded Shorrock Gardens Care Center of Brick a perfect report card, and its highest grades for quality of life, quality of care, safety and more.

Shorrock Gardens Care Center has long been recognized as one of the region’s finest and most multi-faceted nursing care centers, specializing in both long and short term care, transitional care for post-hospital patients, and the most comprehensive care for patients with Alzheimer’s and related memory loss conditions. According to Ron Denti, Administrator at Shorrock Gardens, the perfect score is affirmation of a campus wide dedication to caring for South Jersey’s senior community on the most professional and intimate level. “Some of the necessary ingredients in our recipe for success include a commitment from ownership, a long-term well trained staff, a highly proactive approach, and a sincere daily desire for excellence in care and customer service from each one of our team members to our residents and their family. That’s the Hovnanian and Shorrock promise!”


Annually the Department of Health conducts the week long on-site survey to review compliance to the many Federal and State regulations geared to protect patients’ well-being, and ranks nursing homes based on deficiencies, and the severity of identified problems. Shorrock Gardens Care Center Administrator Ron Denti explained the magnitude of achieving the Health Department’s highest rating, “Being deficiency-free is very difficult to achieve under the current survey process due to the sheer volume and ever increasing stringent nature of the regulations governing our operations. In fact only a very small percentage of nursing homes in the state are able to achieve this high standard.”

What makes Shorrock Gardens’ perfect report card all the more impressive is that Shorrock offers such an enormity of care-giving specializations to be judged on. Its transitional care program has made a major impact with the area’s post-hospital patients by delivering the most comprehensive recuperative care, including physical, occupational, speech, and rehabilitative care and therapy. Shorrock Gardens’ broad continuum of care includes the treatment of stroke, vascular and wound recovery, cardiac rehabilitation and more.

Shorrock Gardens Care Center is continually incorporating new worlds of health and wellness to serve the growing health needs of the area’s senior community. State of the art programs like Shorrock Gardens’ kidney dialysis program have changed the lives of area residents who no longer have to travel long distances for world class treatments. Whether its tracheostomy care, care following chemotherapy or radiation therapy, post-hospital IV therapy treatment for infection, or specialized pain management treatment to aid orthopedic rehabilitation following a fracture, at Shorrock Gardens Care Center, patients with the most extraordinary needs are always in the most talented and experienced hands.

Choosing a nursing care facility is not a decision to be made in haste or without careful research. A perfect report card from the New Jersey Department of Health helps consumers begin to understand what differentiates facilities like Shorrock Gardens Care Center from other senior care centers. However, Shorrock Gardens encourages families and loved ones with special health needs to be their own judge by taking a free tour. Up close and in person, visitors can see first hand how the highest quality services and amenities, the most caring and compassionate staff, and a dedication to excellence can make all the difference in a patient’s recovery.
