Located in Toms River, Holiday Care Center is one of Ocean County’s most trusted nursing and rehabilitative facilities, serving the local community with a wide array of specialized services including 24/7 care for the chronically ill, as well as sub-acute and convalescent care, and a state-certified Alzheimer’s/Dementia Care program.
At Holiday Care Center there’s a dedication to excellence in every aspect of senior care and living. People in need of specialized care for chronic illnesses such as diabetes, rehabilitative services, physical, occupational, and speech therapy, and more, thrive in an environment where their needs are extraordinarily satisfied by highly skilled physicians and senior care professionals.
“Just about anything that can make a difference in a resident’s physical or social well-being, Holiday Care Center puts into action,” boasts Donna Schwartzman, Administrator. “Living arrangements are resident-focused, with high quality amenities & services, delicious and nutritious dining choices, and a full schedule of physical and social activities.”
Highly-respected professionals help make the difference in providing quality care. By earning a reputation for the best possible care, Holiday Care Center has been able to attract skilled physicians such as Dr. Edward M. Maron of Shore Medical Specialists in Toms River and Lakewood. “Holiday Care Center has one of the best clinical management programs for long-term care” says Dr. Maron. “They have on-going internal monitoring programs so they can continue to exceed the industry standards in both sub-acute care and long term care. I, as a physician have full confidence in treating my patients there.”
Dr. Parikh, another of Holiday’s renowned physicians, delivers world-class care on a local level. “I have been an attending physician at Holiday Care for 11 years. I refer a large percentage of my patients to this nursing home.” Dr. Parikh continued, “I have confidence in the care and services delivered to my patients at Holiday. When I admit someone to Holiday Care I know they will receive the best care and will be clinically managed by a professional and committed team.”
Holiday Care Center is able to deliver the highest quality care by maintaining competent, qualified nurses like Joann Curry, who was awarded the prestigious title of “New Jersey Licensed Practical Nurse of the Year” in 2011. Additionally, the entire team of concerned caregivers and aides routinely respond to the requests and needs of residents and families, and demonstrate a higher level of care, kindness and understanding for their patients.
Holiday Care Center has created the most supportive environment for people to heal and get healthy. “From the moment you walk in the front lobby there is a sense of warmth and comfort.” says Pat and Sal Delmastro. “My dad is in his 4th year residing, and is being cared for by nurses and aides at Holiday Care Center who have empathy and work hard. Everyone knows the residents’ names and cheers them on, no matter what the capacity of the patient. The activities are ongoing with staff who always seem so patient and loving.”
Seeing in person the high level of care that their loved ones receive at Holiday Care Center is a comfort for concerned families. Rene Cantwell is the spouse of a Holiday Care Center resident of over 2 years and says, “Every department provides excellent service from dining services, to clean rooms, fresh laundry and wonderful activities with something for everyone.”
With ongoing Four- of Five-Star ratings for quality measures by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Holiday Care Center’s dedication to quality care giving is evident. But Holiday Care Center has even higher standards to live up to: their own. Every year an outside agency conducts resident satisfaction surveys at Holiday Care Center. Within these surveys, Holiday has received over 90% approval ratings and over 90% of residents would recommend Holiday Care Center to a friend in need of a nursing care facility.
Perhaps the most meaningful seal of approval comes from Holiday Care Center’s own residents, like Stephanie Ball. “I have been a resident for 7 years. I had nothing to compare it to when I first arrived, but I quickly came to learn that Holiday had a well-trained and caring staff. It is a clean building with excellent food and many choices for activities. I can’t speak for others, but I believe they too would say that they have all experienced wonderful things here.”
Holiday Care Center’s physicians, residents, and family members certainly agree to that. Come see for yourself the wonderful care and services being provided daily at Holiday Care Center. 4 Plaza Dr. Toms River, NJ 08757 (732) 240-0900
