GRATEFUL FOR THE CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM AT CORAL HARBOR
My name is Samuel Fitzpatrick from Neptune Township. I have suffered from chronic kidney disease for many years. I have been a patient of Dr. Mehandru, Chief of Nephrology for over a year, and Dr. Jeff Beal – a terrific physician – has been my primary doctor for over 20 years. In June of 2018, I was put on Peritoneal Dialysis to help with cleansing my less than functioning kidneys. In September 2018 I had a right leg below-knee amputation. My doctors advised me that I would need to go to a subacute rehabilitation center. I chose Coral Harbor in Neptune City for my rehab care.
Coral Harbor just completed a multi-million dollar renovation and is a provider of peritoneal dialysis. Family is very important to me so a facility close to home where my family can be a part of my recovery was also important. The nurses and therapists have been 5 stars in taking care of me physically while also providing emotional support. The aides work very hard and are very nice.
Thank you, Coral Harbor for taking such great care of me. I look forward to my prosthetic leg so that I can play with my grandchildren and great grandchild – the pride of my life.
THE NURSING STAFF & EVERYONE I CAME IN CONTACT WITH WERE SO NICE!
“I have been at Coral Harbor for 2 months. When I first arrived, I could not walk and had lost strength in my left arm and hand. Once I started therapy, I began regaining strength in both my arm and legs. The speech therapist helped me to stop slurring my words. If it wasn’t for Coral Harbor, I would not be walking today. I thank God for directing me here. The food is outstanding and plentiful! I have to say, they are some of the nicest people I have ever met! If I ever need rehab again, I will DEFINITELY be coming back to Coral Harbor! I love them ALL!!!! God Bless each and every one.”
PULMONARY REHABILITATION SUCCESS!
“I have been so BLESSED to have been residing at Coral Harbor to receive my therapy. As a participant in the pulmonary rehabilitation program, the time that I have spent here has been overwhelming and pleasant. Outstanding is an understatement!
I have also enjoyed spending time with the other residents. The therapists go out of their way and I even enjoyed doing therapy outside. The nurses and aides are very attentive to my needs, and filled with much concern and care.”
THE CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE PROGRAM WAS PERFECT FOR MY NEEDS!
“I enjoyed my stay at Coral Harbor and the Chronic Kidney Disease Program was perfect for my needs! The nurses and staff were VERY good to me. Pam, my aide, was exceptionally caring and very concerned for all patients. The food was good and plenty, and they abided by my RENAL diet… a real plus! Rehab went very well and got me back on my feet. I am looking forward to going back to Asbury Towers and seeing Lisa once a month for Pizza and Bingo!”
STAYING AT CORAL HARBOR SAVED MY LIFE & MY FUTURE! I came in a wheelchair… and going home walking!
“Thank you to my nurses, therapists and aides – I came here unable to walk or even remember why I was here, but the staff gave me hope and strength and guided me on the path to recovery. Through the pain and hurt, they gave me the will to make it. Thanks to the help given to me, today I can walk and stand. When I came I had no place to go, but by the grace of God I am going home to my own place in Keansburg. I am taking all that I have learned here to get my life back. I will get stronger and healthier. All I can say in closing is they gave me my life back!
Thank you Coral Harbor!”
I COULDN’T HAVE MADE THE PROGRESS I DID WITHOUT THE GREAT NURSES & AIDES WHO CARED FOR ME.
“I’m so glad that Dr. Odejobi referred me to Coral Harbor for my rehabilitation needs. The therapy department has been outstanding! I couldn’t have made the progress I did without the great nurses and aides who cared for me. Everyone at Coral Harbor was wonderful and caring! If I ever need rehabilitation again, I would choose Coral Harbor without hesitation!”
“IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO DO, DO IT & DON’T PUT IT OFF. MOST OF ALL APPLY YOURSELF TO YOUR TRUE GIFTS & TALENTS.”
Cheryl moved into Coral Harbor shy of a year ago. While adjusting to her new home, Cheryl at 70 years old published her first book – fulfilling a lifelong dream.
Cheryl was born March 15, 1947 in Ocilla Georgia. Her father was active in the United Air Force so she had the unique opportunity to travel throughout the United States. She began to write poems in 1980 and credits her job as a librarian as an influence to her writing career. Cheryl moved into Asbury Towers in 2010 where she continued to write her poems.
In 2017, Cheryl recognized that she needed the next level of care and chose Coral Harbor after numerous community events.
THANK YOU CORAL HARBOR I AM VERY EXCITED TO GET BACK TO MY COMMUNITY!
“I am a subacute patient here at Coral Harbor and have had a great stay so far. I’m most impressed with the physical therapy and their staff. They are so patient and informative. Every day I feel stronger and more independent which is very important to me as I am an active member of St. Paul’s Church and on the board of The Ocean Grove Historical Society. Thanks to great therapy, great meals and overall great care that will be happening very soon!”
I FELT LIKE I WAS IN SUCH CARING HANDS THE WHOLE TIME THAT I HAVE BEEN HERE!
“I am just finishing my rehabilitation stay at Coral Harbor and I have so much praise for the staff that works here. My CNA Pam and my nurse Christina have taken such great care of me. Andrew and Denise from therapy even took me home prior to discharge to make sure I would be safe back in my home at Asbury Towers. They have made sure that I will have everything I need! Dr. Griggs is a top notch doctor and was on top of my care from day one. I have been seen by their cardiologist group and felt like I was in such caring hands the whole time that I have been here. I’ll miss you, but I’ll be seeing Linda during Bingo at Asbury Towers soon! Thank you Coral Harbor!”
I LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT THE FUTURE BRINGS TO ME HERE AT CORAL HARBOR.
I am a new long term care resident at Coral Harbor – I recently moved here from Asbury Towers. The staff has really helped me adjust to this change in my life. I look forward to my daily physical therapy sessions as I have been a life-long believer in taking great care of my physical fitness and health. At 97 years old I have even shown the staff some of my great exercise moves and gotten them to exercise right along with me! John, the Dietary Director, makes the most fabulous healthy meals, and I always look forward to heading down to the dining room! I have made many new friends.
I FEEL AT HOME AND COMFORTABLE HERE, I NEVER FEEL OUT OF PLACE.
I am a repeat customer at Coral Harbor. When I was at Ocean Medical Center for shoulder surgery I told the social worker I would only go to Coral Harbor. My nurse Christina treats me with such kindness as do the CNA’s. The Director of Nursing, Valerie, and the Admissions Director, Linda, have a kind word for me every day and always check in to see how I am doing. I will be having my left knee replacement surgery in about 6 months, and again, the only place I will go for my rehabilitation is Coral Harbor. Thank you, Coral Harbor for the great care!
THANK YOU CORAL HARBOR! THE THERAPY DEPARTMENT HAS HELPED ME MAKE SUCH GREAT PROGRESS.
I want to thank all of the staff at Coral Harbor for the wonderful care they are giving me. My mother was here as a patient and we were so happy with the care that when I needed rehabilitation I knew Coral Harbor was going to be my first choice. There are so many nurses and CNA’s that I want to thank; Talesha, Nelson, Devoy, Jasmine, Dee Dee, Lorraine, Christina, Jennifer . . . the list goes on! The therapy department has helped me make such great progress. I think the best part of all though is the friendship that I have made with my roommate Paul. We clicked from day one and always enjoy each other’s company. We are on the road to recovery together!
I HAVE ALL THE SUPPORT HERE THAT I NEED TO GET WELL. OVERALL I HAVE HAD A VERY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE HERE AT CORAL HARBOR!
I have been here at Coral Harbor since Nov. 1st and have been very happy with my stay so far. I do not have family in the area as my only daughter lives in Florida. The staff and other patients have made me feel like family. I feel that I have all the support here that I need to get well and discharge out to an assisted living. Pam and Tasha, the CNAs are so good to me. Whatever I need, they are there in a second. The food has been great too! I love their baked chicken and grilled cheese, as good as any restaurant! Overall I have had a very positive experience here at Coral Harbor and I would recommend this facility to anyone in need of subacute rehab or long term care.
I FEEL THE STAFF GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY & ALWAYS WITH A SMILE!
I am not great with remembering names so I will just say the whole crew at Coral Harbor is fabulous – from nursing, CNAs and also therapy. Pete and Carol in therapy brought me back to a level I was afraid I would not reach again. In the middle of the night I get leg cramps and when I press the call bell a staff member arrives immediately to help me. I always feel reassured knowing that they will answer right away. I feel the staff goes above and beyond the call of duty and always with a smile. I have been enrolled in the cardiology program that is overseen by Shore Cardiology which prevents me from having to go back to the hospital. I will come back and visit all of the friends that I have made here after I am discharged home.
THANK YOU CORAL HARBOR FOR ALWAYS GOING THAT EXTRA MILE . . . IT REALLY MEANS SO MUCH!
I want to give a testimonial to a place that I now call home. I came into Coral Harbor unsure of what the future would hold. As it turns out I will be staying long term here. The whole team at Coral Harbor has made this transition seamless for me. They all go out of their way to make me feel at home. I am on dialysis and they have provided me with my own soft blanket and insulated snack bag for when I have to go out to dialysis. They also have a renal support group every month with Dr. Mehandru that my daughter and I attend, this has been so beneficial. The care here has been so great and the staff are all so thoughtful and warm, I really do feel very much at home here.
THE STAFF WAS SO ATTENTIVE AT CORAL HARBOR I LOOK FORWARD TO KEEPING IN TOUCH!
The staff was so friendly and attentive at Coral Harbor. The therapy department was awesome. Roc and Monica would always perform very innovative exercises that have kept me interested and motivated to keep doing more. Lorraine, one of the night CNA’s, was always so helpful and would help me with anything I needed. I’ll be going home tomorrow but look forward to keeping up with my Coral Friends at the Phillips Seaview Tower where I reside and they host monthly bingo!
Thank you Coral Harbor – with much gratitude!
THE STAFF WAS SO ATTENTIVE AT CORAL HARBOR I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!
The whole team here at Coral Harbor has been so caring and attentive to my needs. There isn’t one person that I can single out because all of the staff were so instrumental in my healing and therapy process. The physical therapy department was awesome, always motivating me to do more. I would recommend Coral Harbor to anyone in need of subacute care and will always keep the staff at Coral Harbor in my heart.
MY LIFE TURNED AROUND AT CORAL HARBOR!
I have so many reasons to be thankful to Coral Harbor. When I was first admitted to Coral Harbor on July 7th I was confused, disoriented, had multiple wounds, needed a hoyer lift and was completely debilitated.
I have been in their care for almost three months and in that time my life and health has been completely turned around. My wounds are almost completely healed, I am thinking clearly, I have stable labs, and I can independently manage my own health now. I look forward to my upcoming discharge date with courage
and not fear because I know that from their good care I will be fine. I have made friends while I have been here and have grown close to many of the staff members. I will definitely be visiting here after I return home!
I have had a great stay so far at Coral Harbor, all of the nurses and CNA’s are wonderful. The staff goes above and beyond, they even made sure I had my favorite pierogies for dinner! I enjoy sharing all of my old-time stories, jokes and card tricks with the staff! I will be going back to my assisted living soon but have enjoyed my stay here at Coral Harbor.
I want to thank Coral Harbor and the wonderful staff and residents for bringing me back to the point I am right now after being hit by a car. I have had some hard times in my life and the staff here at Coral Harbor have been so supportive and caring that I feel very optimistic about my future! I have reached many milestones with my therapy and I am becoming more and more independent every day. I would definitely return to Coral Harbor in the future should I need their care.
I came to Coral Harbor after my recent knee surgery done by Dr. Mark and I could not have been more pleased with my stay. I have made many friends with the pleasant residents and staff here. The ambiance here is lovely and the staff always appears motivated and happy to accommodate my needs. The therapy department is a fun and experienced bunch! I always looked forward to my next therapy session. I enjoyed sharing my stories of being a patent lawyer and the objects I have patented over the years such as the Reach toothbrush and tamper-proof bottle caps. I enjoyed the staff’s company I think as much as they enjoyed mine! I have my second knee surgery coming up in January and I will definitely be reserving my spot at Coral Harbor.
I have been a long term care resident at Coral Harbor for almost a year. I have grown to love the other residents and the staff that takes such great care of me! I enjoy playing the guitar and having a good time with the friends that I have made here. Coral Harbor is my home and I am very thankful to be here.
Following much deliberation, my wife and I selected Coral Harbor for long term care in December. I am pleased to say we have had a good experience here. The people make the place! Following a recent hospitalization, it was determined that I could benefit from ongoing care and consultation by cardiology. What is so convenient is that I don’t have to go out to these doctors, they come here! A physician from Shore Heart Group visits me routinely – I have been doing great with the physical therapy team at Coral Harbor too. I am 94 years old and I feel stronger and more energetic every day.
I have had such a great experience at Coral Harbor. The nurses are wonderful. I always feel like I am in good hands here. I trust the staff, feel very comfortable and am so glad I chose Coral Harbor for my post acute cardiac rehabilitation. As a participant in the Cardiac Rehab Program, my care is followed weekly by the Shore Heart Group. They see me here at the center and monitor my progress while I am wearing a life vest. I have a way to go but I am getting better every day! Thank you Coral Harbor for a great experience….I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!
Since I moved into Coral Harbor for long term care I have made many friends, both residents and staff. I feel very much at home here and always feel loved by the people who work here. I enjoy the food and all of the activities, especially Groom and Glamour Day! I was hesitant to make the change from living with my daughter and her family to a facility, but since day one I have never looked back or regretted moving to Coral Harbor. I know I will live the rest of my years with people who love and care about me, thank you Coral Harbor for providing this!!
Coral Harbor provided me a great rehabilitation experience. I am so glad that Dr. Griggs referred me to Coral Harbor’s Urgent SNF™ program. The care has been great and because of the wonderful therapy department I am able to go home independently. I look forward to coming back to Coral Harbor in coming months to view the final renovations of the center already in progress. I would recommend Coral Harbor to my friends and family, and would surely return myself if the need ever again arose.
My stay at Coral Harbor has been a great experience. I have rehabbed wonderfully in less than two weeks from a knee replacement surgery I had at Monmouth Medical Center. The therapy department has been fabulous! I have also enjoyed my meals here as well. Coral Harbor has helped me reach my goals. I can now fulfill a bucket list dream of hiking the Grand Canyon with my daughter! It is with great confidence that I will recommend Coral Harbor to any of my friends or family who may require rehabilitation in the future!
I have made great progress with the healing of my wound at Coral Harbor due to the great nursing care. The therapy staff is always so friendly and motivating. I have especially enjoyed the meals, my favorite being the breakfasts! As much as I have enjoyed my stay here at Coral Harbor and the progress I have made, I am looking forward to going home so I can enjoy my daily walks to The Auditorium in Ocean Grove and feeding the squirrels! Thank you Coral Harbor!
My husband Oak has a found a loving home at Coral Harbor. Not only does he get excellent medical attention, but he is also treated with affection by people who care for him. Everyone is pleasant and friendly to the family as well as to him. All the staff are doing a great job – whatever their job might be.
Oak & Bettylu Johnson
We were very impressed with the care our dad received at Coral Harbor Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center. The staff was not only highly skilled and knowledgeable with our dad’s needs, but empathetic towards our needs. We encourage anyone interested to explore Coral Harbor as an option. You will not be disappointed!!
The Gonzalez Family
I have been an Asbury Park resident since my early football days of high school. My daughter is very active with the Asbury Senior Center, and Coral Harbor sponsors a monthly Bingo luncheon there. I knew when I ended up at Jersey Shore that I was going to need rehabilitation before I would be able to go home. My family and I chose Coral Harbor and I’m glad we did! When I first came to Coral Harbor I was very confused and disoriented. The staff at Coral Harbor was so patient, kind and reassuring. Every day I am making strides and meeting goals with therapy. My ultimate goal is to make it home soon so I can enjoy my grandchildren, great-grandchildren and the beautiful boardwalks of Asbury Park.
I have been at Coral Harbor since the end of February and have made great progress with their outstanding therapy department. Jodi and Nicole were excellent at getting and keeping me motivated, and I can be pretty stubborn! I always felt a sense of great camaraderie in the physical therapy gym. I am thankful for the progress I have made here at Coral Harbor and look forward to my next stage of life at Phillips Towers in Asbury Park. Thank you Coral Harbor!
I’m so glad the NEW Coral Harbor team was there for me in my time of need. After a fall in my home which resulted in a hospital visit, it was clear that rehabilitation would be important for me to regain my independence. I love being around the people of Coral Harbor! The therapists were extra supportive as I worked hard with them daily. I must mention the food which was a highlight of my day. I would recommend the team at Coral Harbor to anyone in their times of need as well. I’m sure glad I made the choice I did!
My grandmother returned to NJ after living in Puerto Rico for over a decade and moved in with me; however my long hours at work and looking after my mother made it difficult to provide my grandmother the care she deserved. I wanted to find a place that was close to my home and a local hospital. Within hours of explaining my situation to Pam Montemurno, a member of the leadership team at Coral Harbor, Pam had a meeting coordinated with my family and her team. Soon after I moved my grandmother in.
I love Coral Harbor and selected the center for many reasons… It is less than ten minutes from my home and is located across the street from my employer, Jersey Shore University Medical Center. Coral Harbor checked off every need I had for my grandmother’s care and I can’t say enough about the staff. From the Admissions department to the nurses and the facility staff; they have all welcomed her and have made her feel at home. This experience has been a positive one for me and my family.
