I lived at this facility for a year and a half. With the exception of the owner Matt, the Administrator Kris, and a couple of the staff members (two, literally) this place is a living nightmare. The staff exhibits a blatant disregard for the residents, usually too busy talking or texting on their cell phones about personal affairs to do their job or by any means make an attempt to be courteous or exert any extra effort to make a resident's day a little better. On top of this, resident's personal affairs, medical information and history, and life circumstances are discussed freely and openly in the hallways and common areas by staff either staff member-to-staff member, staff member-to-other residents, and even staff member-to-outsiders (friends and family). Rumors and unfounded speculation regarding residents and their personal life is generated and circulated around by the staff on a daily basis and often discussed with other residents. It seems the staff as a whole seek to intentionally eliminate any sense of dignity and/or personal privacy from the residents' lives. There is also a rampant and obvious drug problem that has remained unaddressed and continues to grow from within, completely unchecked. Smoking of both cigarettes and marijuana in the rooms is commonplace and the hallways and stairs frequently wreak of it as a result. Bottom line, if you have a choice (and with the rapidly expanding group housing and assisted-living facilities in Colorado you do), do not choose Point of the Pines Gardens. Especially if you are looking for a nice facility to cater to the evolving needs of a senior still participating in the day-to-day. This place is much closer to a mental health facility or halfway home then anything else. The owner tries his best to keep the place clean and maintained and the administration has hearts of gold. But, the staff and open-door policy regarding residents has turned it into a last-ditch alternative to homelessness and not much more.
