My experience with Pines Village was absolutely wonderful. I was very impressed with the rooms. They're one of the lowest priced in the area for independent living and apartments, but assisted living is what I'm looking at. They had two buses that take people anywhere they need or want to go. They have it all. If you want to go out for dinner, they'll put a sign-up sheet and pick where they're going. They take you to your doctor's appointment, visit your friends, or anywhere you want to go. The dining areas were huge and beautiful, and there's one in each building. They had different facilities for each style of living. In the assisted living, they had a little cafeteria where you can go and have a sandwich or ice cream. I spoke with quite a few of the residents, and they're so friendly. I'm disabled and walk with a walker, so I think they thought I was moving in or something. Everybody comes up and says "hello" and "how are you?" I'm impressed. I used to eat there years ago when my dad was there, and it was great. When you're ready to move in, they invite you to come out and have a meal and see what it's all about. You can have one, two, or three meals a day. It's up to you what you decide you want to do. They had gardens outside. Some of them were enclosed for people with Alzheimer's, but they're completely lined with shrubs and flowers and bushes. People can just go and sit and enjoy and be outside with their relatives or friends.
