About Seashore Gardens Living Center

Honor Thy Mother and Thy Father. These are more than just words to us. They are our call to action, our sacred responsibility.

The Simon & Sylvia Zisman Seashore Gardens Living Center (SGLC) is an independent nonprofit, tax-exempt home for the aged, guided by Jewish law and tradition and serving all faiths. Our mission is to enrich elder lives, and we've been doing so for more than a century.

We started in 1916 in a small home in Atlantic City's inlet section. At the time, we were known as the Hebrew Sheltering Home of Atlantic City. The Home provided kosher meals and temporary housing for the poor, but soon transitioned to serve a greater need to care for our elderly. Over the years, we've grown in services and location.

Today we are on a 20-acre campus in Galloway, New Jersey. We offer a continuum of services from assisted living to short and long term nursing care, Alzheimer's care, respite care and rehabilitation all under one roof. We designed our beautiful Home to be family-friendly with a Boardwalk café, putting green, theater, and more to encourage visitors, and a home-like environment for residents. SGLC has become the example for other nursing homes, and we've received visitors from as far away as Japan hoping to duplicate what we've done in Galloway.

In 2016, SGLC celebrated a century of caring. The beloved tradition of enriching elder lives continues with the support of each new generation.
