Taking care of my parent and my in-laws for the last 14 years, I have had the opportunity to utilize several skilled nursing facilities for rehab after a variety of surgeries, including broken hips, heart attacks and related surgeries, knee replacements and other ailments. Most recently my mom needed rehabilitation services after a cardiac incident. She is 92 and suffers from the early stages of dementia. I toured several SNF in the Roseville/Sacramento before selecting Pine Creek Care Center from the list the hospital gave me. I was very grateful when Pine Creek accepted my mom, because I was horrified at some of the places I saw. During my mom's 2-week stay, she was well taken care of. She said the food was "fantastic". The staff were very caring and attentive, even though they were often short-staffed. Their response time to requests for care or to get to the bathroom was great. The place was always clean. The staff always polite and helpful. Her nurse, Liz was amazing. She was patient, responsive, and always helpful when I needed information about my mom's vitals, condition, medication or whatever. The rehab services were vital to my mom's recovery. I often came to visit mom unannounced and she was always up, dressed and sitting in her wheelchair. Her bed was clean and made up most days. The shared bathroom was always clean. Sure we experienced a few bumps in the road while mom was there, but, trust me, they happen in all care facilities. What is important is how the staff respond to the bumps. At Pine Creek I was continually impressed with their responses. Her case manager, Peter, was always available to assist and he even called me at home to follow-up on a couple of issues. Overall, I thought Pine Creek did a great job and I am thankful they were there and a bed available at the time my mom needed a SNF. Thank you everyone at Pine Creek. Your efforts on my mom's behalf are greatly appreciated!
