Questions About Allegria at Ocean Grove
Q: How do you keep residents’ families informed about their loved ones?
A: We are very proud to have a full time licensed social worker at Allegria. Our social worker is a very important resource for many of our families. Our Administrator and Director of Nursing stay in regular contact with our families. We are very lucky to have a strong family presence on site and get to see and speak to our resident's loved ones often. For those loved ones who are not able to visit as much, we make sure to reach out to keep them informed of all important events. Also, we send out a monthly newsletter and activity calendar to all of our families to make sure they are informed of the exciting things happening onsite and fun things we have planned!
Q: What safety features or security measures do you provide to protect residents who wander?
A: We have a wanderguard system in the building available to all those who choose to participate in the program. We also have a memory care residence that is a secured space for the safety of our residents with a tendency to wander.

A: We are a pet friendly community.
Q: What safety features or security measures do you offer to your assisted living residents?

Q: Describe your community's overall population of assisted living residents. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?
A: Our residents are very active within the building and in the community. Anyone who knows Ocean Grove knows it is extremely rich with culture and is a very tight knit community. Allegria is best known for being so close to the beach. Many of our residents grew up summer vacationing in Ocean grove. In the summer months, we go to the beach and/or boardwalk almost daily. We also visit the local shops and/or eateries daily year round. Our residents enjoy attending local concerts, taking boat trips, and visiting Atlantic City. We also have a very active social calendar within the building! Some of our favorite activities are art of the month club, tai chi, weekly exercises, word games, advanced art classes, pokeno, bingo and so much more! We also have a pool table, library, computer room, and private sitting areas on each floor for those who enjoy their privacy or want a quite place to read or write.
Q: What makes your chef or dining program exceptional? What kind of menu can assisted residents expect?
A: Our dining program is exceptional and our residents wouldn't accept anything less! Residents can expect a diverse menu with many choices. We also do fun Dietary events weekly, such as the omelet station, where our Chef creates omelets made to order right in the dining room! Our dietary staff also hosts cooking education and activities for the residents which they really enjoy.
