I am a friend or relative of a resident
Tall Pines was a fitting facility. It seemed to provide all of the basics, but I didn't really like its atmosphere. The building was closed up, allowing very little light in. This added to the overall dark feeling of the facility. Staff seemed to be pleasant and reasonably helpful. My friend was well tended too and seemed to enjoy her stay. The rooms were plenty large and I did like the large, open, social area. I think this would encourage outgoing, social behavior. In the the elder who don't have a whole ton to look forward to, I believe this is a positive experience. It's too bad that, like in many other local areas like Harbor Hill, that the long term physical patients are mixed with the mental patients. This could easily discourage a physically inept person as they are constantly surrounded by a group of people who know not where they are and know not why. I would find this depressing. Everything seemed to be pretty clean, though it was certainly of older style. This Nursing Home was adequate, but I really wouldn't have made it my top choice.

I visited this facility
There was only one unit available when we visited Tallpines. The rest were all taken. The have 2 bedrooms, 1 bedrooms and a studio. The studio actually have 2 separate rooms with a little kitchenette. The one that was available is the smallest unit and it a studio type. The units are all new and very clean. They will be meeting my mom for an assessment. They want to know if they can take good care of her for now and in the future at the level she's at. And if my mother doesn't like it, it's not gonna be good either. We don't know yet if we will move her there yet. We will know after the assessment.
