United Methodist Communities at The Shores

Regular Employees are Great - Admin is Lacking

I am very familiar with The Shores and, through the years, many friends and family members have lived there. They offer a wide range of living options that are designed for each specific stage of care the resident requires. They used to be part of a different company and, since they have changed owners, it feels more like a business now. I know there is a lot going on that I don't understand and that this change was necessary. But everything now seems nickle and dime and just I don't like it. I do like the day to day employees that care for the residents. The nurses and aides actually take their time to connect with residents and their family members as well. I especially appreciate their Social Worker, Michelle. She is extremely nice! The care my family member receives from the regular employees is good but I can not say the same about the admin. I have yet to meet the new director or owner and it's been about 2 years now. Might just be me but it still doesn't sit well.


Thank you for the 4-star rating! We are so happy to hear you recommend our community and the services we offer. You are correct in saying that there have been a few changes at The Shores. Last April, we became United Methodist Communities at The Shores. Being part of a parent organization, we have a more influential voice as a system of 10 communities. While the name has changed, our mission, vision, values, and ownership have all remained the same. If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet with our Executive Director, Jennifer Courlas, we highly encourage you to call and set up an appointment. She would be happy to speak with you. Thank you again for taking the time to write the review. We truly appreciate your continued loyalty to United Methodist Communities at The Shores!
