My review of The Pines

We toured The Pines and this was actually our favorite facility and the one we wanted to move my mom into. The only reason we did not was because they were shut down and not taking new residents in during COVID.

Needs new management

This place is way understaffed ??. I feel so sad for all the people living there. I would definitely not recommend.

This is a beautiful facility with everything that you could want in a care facility. The big drawback is it it is way out in distance, but the price is in line with almond height so it is more reasonable. There is a great selection of activities memory Care was very active the rooms were very nice in large enough for [name removed] and [name removed], with high ceilings in granite counters in bathrooms. The food was great. It is open dining from 7 to 7 and you can either order either one of two meals of the day or order anything off a regular menu, even breakfast. Transportation to doctors is provided but no Bible study or on site church services. But transportation is provided to local churches. This is a great facility just wish it was closer. We will bring [name removed] and [name removed] here to check it out as this is one of two choices in the final running.

Just to big

Grandma has memory issues so when we toured this place we were afraid that she would get lost in there and it just wasn't the right spot for her. It was a nice and clean community but just had to go to a smaller community. The director who we toured with was absolutely amazing and she answered all our questions.

Relatively new (within 2 years). Studios were smaller than other places, decor was not as abundant or varied as other places, no real landscaping yet so outdoor strolls are not beckoning. Very clean and well maintained. Didn't really check out the dining. It was a further drive than other places in this price range so I didn't give it a

Everything seemed to be clean and maintained very well during my tour of The Pines. The person that I met with was friendly and welcoming. They were able to answer my questions and it was a good experience, but not the best fit for my loved one.

Great place for mom!

They have a nice movie theater on site.

The administrator at this community has been very helpful with the paperwork needed for dad's insurance. The staff have been helpful and the nursing director even held a training class to make sure the attendants had the knowledge to care for his medical needs. Dad enjoys the thinking games such as scrabble and trivia.The food is excellent and they are flexible when it comes to ordering meals. The community is well maintained and I would recommend it.

A Better Choice

This is a pretty nice place. It is better for my parents, they have a lot of staff there helping my parents. I like the way it is set up and my parents can pick their own schedule. The meals are good with enough variety. The neighborhood streets are wide and simple for my dad to drive through. When I toured, they took you right in like a guest. We did what everybody else was doing. It was more friendlier and warmer and they are looking out for the family. Once we were there we knew it was the one.

Trusting Staff!!

My parents have really felt safe and comfortable in there new living environment. My mother says nothing but great things about the staff and has really built a trust with them. My favorite thing about this complex is they offered double wide bedrooms that where affordable and spacious for my loved ones. My only complaint is that I wish the housekeeping would come in to clean more than once a week

The Perfect Place

When considering an assisted living facility for our mother, my sister & I looked at many options. Once we walked in to The Pines we immediately knew that we had found the right place. We met with Kristine, who was extremely helpful and patient. She took the time to answer all of our question and addressed all of our concerns. The tour revealed a first class facility that was extremely clean and well designed. It has proved to be the right place for our mom and we couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend The Pines.

Spotless property, cheerful staff, top-notch care

I'm writing this review as a way of thanking the management and staff at The Pines for the way they cared for my father, who passed away June 10 2016 after a brief stay there. The Pines is just three miles from where he lived with my mother in Sun City Lincoln, so we thought the transition to assisted living would be easier. He was less than thrilled to be moving out of his home, but the staff at The Pines treated him with respect and dignity and he admitted to me that it was very much like staying at a resort. I looked forward to my visits there, and had several meals with my father in the dining room. The service and food were very good. My dad's health failed much more quickly than anyone anticipated. Within a month we moved him to memory care on the other side of the building and he was only there a few weeks. Everyone on both sides of the building were wonderful and helped put my father and his family at ease as the end approached. My mother is still at their home in Sun City, but she's already told us she would be happy to move to The Pines when the time is ready.

Thank you so much for sharing this story with us. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to serve your father, and we appreciate hearing that we helped during this difficult time. Thank you again.
