I visited this facility
I looked for a place for my aunt and found Forest Pines. She chose this place and she'll be moving there this week. It's a nice place. It's clean and well kept. They have lots of activities. I ate there and the food was good.
I am/was a resident of this facility
We lived at Forest Pines and it was a terrible place to live and it's very expensive. I felt like we were living in a school. They were big turnover of managers. The food was not good. You had to be at the dining room at a particular time. If you are not there, you have to wait until you are served later on after everyone else is served. We had a two bedroom, two bath; no full kitchen or refrigerator. The place was not clean although the staff were very lovely. The staff that cleans the rooms was very good. They worked hard, but didn't get paid for what they were worth. The managers, many of them, did not know what they were doing.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
Forest Pines is an amazing facility. The staff are all incredibly friendly, attentive, and protective of the residents. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the decor beautiful and comfortable. While there is only one elevator for the entire three-level building, getting around appears pretty convenient for the residents. They provide beauty and health services, games and activities (there is a charming "puzzle floor", presentations and small concerts in the foyer, the food is delicious, and the rooms are big and full of light. My grandmother has lived there for several years now, and has no complaints whatsoever. It gives her the opportunity to have a college-like experience, with social activities and people coming by her room at all hours of the day. They all get together to cheer on their favorite football team and tailgate in the TV room. The staff is always available whenever she needs help, and they are always happy to see her. This place really is incredible. I'm so happy that my grandmother gets to live there, and that I had the opportunity to see it for myself.
