Leslie, thank you for sharing your positive experience! If there is anything we can do to ensure a five-star experience in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out.
We had a little bit of a rough start, but my loved one seems to have settled in. Initially he moved in needing assisted living, but pretty quickly he needed to move to memory care. And at this point, we're very happy. Our experience has been good overall. It's challenging to navigate because it's all so new. But the memory care coordinator has been amazing. The food has been okay, and they seem to have more than enough activities if the resident is willing. I think the price seems comparable to other places in the area as well.

We chose Gable Pines for our loved ones because of the overall feel of the facility. We felt it was a good value for the money and that it would be a safe and enjoyable environment for my parents. They are short staffed, but in general it is a very good facility and we would definitely recommend them.

Your recommendation means so much to us and we're so happy to have earned it. Thank you again for taking the time to let the world know about your positive experience. Have a great day!
We toured this community and the staff were very friendly and informative.
The lady who showed us around was absolutely wonderful and it is a very nice place. The only reason we did not choose this facility was because the services offered are not optional and I knew my mom would not use a lot of the things provided. We were looking for something more "al a carte"
I toured this community and they answered all our questions. The community is beautiful and I thought this would be a good place to live.
[name removed] was our tour guide and she was exceptional. Very patient, very thorough, and really seemed to care about our mothers experience.
We chose Gable Pines because of the value for the money, the location, and what they had to offer in assisted living. They do send out newsletters to keep families updated. I would tell others to make sure that the doctor comes to see you, it was something that was overlooked in the beginning but is fixed now. I would recommend to others looking.
When mom was in her independent apartment at Gable Pines the food service started out to be ok as months went on it diminished, the chef quit and staff ended up cooking. My mom was not satisfied. When covid came there was a dramatic change, no family member was allowed to see her and we were not informed about how our mother was doing and she was very lonely. Many days they did not even deliver meals to her room. We would not recommend Gable Pines to anyone family who is anticipating a place for their mother. Look for a nonprofit.
Gable Pines has been a great fit for my mother in law and she likes it here. The dining rooms are open again so she is able to get out more which has been great for her. She says that she really enjoys the food. They seem to take care of our loved one really well and do screenings when you come in. They have also been accommodating with her physical therapy needs. I would recommend them to others looking.
We would not recommend. They were trying to add services on things that might happen in the future. We have had issues regarding the medication management. The director was not at all proactive regarding resident care. Only way we got our issues addressed was to bring in someone from corporate. The new health director is much better.
Very nice place-not much visitor parking but I really like the layout and the rooms were wonderful. Would take my mom for a 2nd visit
I live at Gable Pines. The staff is most helpful, frienldy and always willing to help when needed. Our food is very good. Our chef has meetings with residents for suggestions. Our home is kept clean. We have many activities to enjoy; programs to hear, crafts to make, etc. All in all, Gable Pines is the best senior living!

Thank you for your wonderful review! We appreciate your time to leave us feedback!
I am content here. Like my apartment and the workers are great. Food could always be better but it is hard to satisfy everyone. I bare no comparison so my opinion is they are all alike, it is up to you to be satisfied.
My mom moved to Assisted Living Gable Pines in September 2017. She had a very difficult transition and we realized she needed more direct assistance so a change to Memory Care was necessary within 3 months. We have seen changes in staffing on all levels and they have worked towards consistency and quality in hiring. My mom's needs have always been addressed even as her needs have changed. She feels comfortable in her apartment which is large enough to provide her with space to relax and overlooks the garden area. A dedicated Memory Care Director and kitchen and activities staff add to the improvements along with environments that are dementia friendly. Many positive things are happening at Gable Pines.
My mom has been in Memory Care for 18 months. Her apartment is very nice, plenty of room for furniture, 2 closets, just enough space for her to feel at home. She is happy spending quiet time in her apartment or joining others in the common spaces. There have been many updates to the space to make it dementia friendly and comfortable. The garden is beautiful and provides us with a safe outdoor space to move around in. The consistency in staff over the past 6 months or so has been so important to her care. We have been pleased with the attention from staff as her need for care has increased. They are a caring, thoughtful group who are aware of her emotions and needs. The dedicated kitchen staff help to make mealtime a good experience. We feel like many positive things have been happening at Gable Pines.
A beautiful physical environment has masked serious ongoinng concerns substantiated in an Investigation Report by the MN Office of Health Facilities Complaints dated [date removed]. Our mother was the first resident in the Gable Pines Memory Care Neighborhood, 6/2016. Initially, personal care, activities and dining were excellent. All began to decline with frequent turnover of nursing leadership resulting in inaccurate care plans, inadequate training and nursing supervision of a ever changing group of caregivers. The situation reached a crisis level when our mother had a change in condition, became unresponsive and was receiving Hospice Care. Gable Pines did not provide a Registered Nurse as required to assess our mother’s changed needs. In addition, our mother experienced delays in administration of medication to prevent pain. ‘Med passers’ needed to be reminded by family multiple times. After our request to assume responsibility for medication administration, an interim executive director, while never responding to our concern, issued a letter of immediate termination of our mother’s residency just four days before her death. Our Mother’s vaid POLST agreement stating ‘Comfort Care Only’ was disregarded. Our pleas for assistance from Life Care Services, who manages Gable Pines, were ignored and minimized. We subsequently filed a complaint with the MN Office of Health Facilities Complaints. While Gale Pines was awarded a 2018 'Best of Assisted Living' rating, The MN OHFC, on [date removed], issued more than 20 ‘Correction Orders’ for multiple failures by Gable Pines to meet licensing requirements including failures of training and supervision of unlicensed caregivers by a Registered Nurse, failure to conduct a nursing assessment when a resident’s condition changed, failure to consider family wishes for the resident’s care and failure to provide required notice for termination of residency and services. The Investigative Report also stated: “Furthermore the licensee took action to retaliate against the client for complaints made by the client’s family”. The Investigative Report also cited the licensee with “interfering with the investigation”. 8 months later, in February 2019, the correction order for inadequate Registered Nurse supervision of unlicensed caregivers was reissued. As a family we trusted that the promises made to us by Gable Pines would be kept. Gable Pines betrayed our trust and burdened us with unnecessary, cruel treatment during the last four days of our mother’s life. Unfortunately, family members of current residents who continue to raise concerns and are reminded by nursing leadership that improvements take time and that this is first a business.

Great place if you don’t need assistance like help getting to restroom in a timely manner. I waited over two hours before help came. I thought of calling the police. Food is not very good and overpriced.

Looking at options for my parents... I think I found the right place. Beautiful, but really comfortable. Nice apartments with really high ceilings and good light. The people there seem very happy and friendly.
