Assisted Living Reviews for Elison Senior Living Community of Pinecrest

February 28, 2018

By Robert

I visited this facility

It was a very nice community. We visited during Christmas season, so it was beautifully decorated. There were a lot of Christmas-related activities for the residents. It's probably one of the best places that we went to. The tour guide was super, very helpful, and kept in very close contact with us. She seemed to be truly interested in finding an arrangement that would work for my mom and dad even if that didn't mean at their community. She was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. Their food was excellent. They had several dining areas. They're beautiful, clean, and provide a wide variety of food.

My daughter's grandmother and I were invited to evacuate there during Hurricane Irma. I am so impressed with this facility. Hall monitors on every floor 24 hours to assist in any way they could and to provide comfort to those with anxiety about the hurricane. Absolutely beautiful facility meeting every possible need of its residents. Employees were kind and efficient. When the power went out hot coffee was available and delicious pastries cold foods. A big thank you and may God Bless you for hosting us during this stressful time.

I am living here. They have a million things for you to do, but nobody visits each other in their own rooms. The food is good. It's great, but it's not what I want.

My mother is here. I can’t sing their praises highly enough. They’re fabulous. I knew about this place because I have friends with parents who were there. The staff is amazing. They are so helpful, friendly, and concerned. Every patient is important to them from the office staff and the nurses to the physical therapy and the activities people. Even when they’re not absolutely dealing with the residents, the staff stops in and sees them to talk to them in their rooms. It is just amazing. The food is excellent. It is like a three-star restaurant in the main dining room. Each assisted living floor has its own kitchen and restaurant as well. The activities are excellent. There are movies every night and fantastic parties. I had the best time ever of my life at their New Year’s party.

It was fine and pretty good. They showed me around and I saw a 1-bedroom apartment with bath, full kitchen and a living room. It was of the right size. They have a library and dining room. My golf course is right next door to it.

We stopped to visit for a few minutes, and the place seemed nice. They had a nice swimming pool, and their dining area was very nice as well. They had a coffee shop and a nice library, too.

The activities impressed me. There is a swimming pool; there’s bingo. There are all kinds of visiting musicians and choirs. They have very liberal transportation service and very elegant dining and I got to say moderate pricing. The staff is long term, high quality, and friendly. The food is excellent with a large variety of choice at every meal and it’s very well done.

It was a high-rise apartment building. It was very clean with a good view all the way around. They had nice people. It was very homey inside. The homes themselves were almost in the same size. If you wanted two bedrooms, they were about 30 square feet.

I visited and it was all decorated for Christmas. Everybody was nice. We looked at several rooms, and they were set-up to be sold. They had a good restaurant and had good service. It was a very positive experience. I liked that it was immaculately clean, and they had 12 different people decorating 12 different trees.

It was actually our number one choice, but it was too far away. We liked the view, and the fact that they take you any place in Pinellas County, that they had entertainment, and happy hour every week. The dining room was spectacular. The apartments had been remodeled. To me and to my parents, it was the best place that we visited. The food was good. The activities were absolutely fabulous. I would live there if I could. If I could move down to Clearwater, I would have my parents move there in a heartbeat.

Top notch living. Top notch care. Staff that are dedicated and care so much and stay involved in their residents lives because they care.

It is excellent. It’s a large community. We’ve eaten there and the dining facilities are excellent. The food, the menu and the transportation are. I see they have a good transportation schedule and they’ll take you anywhere you want to go. They have an activities calendar. The staff is excellent. That’s why we decided we want to go there.

It was great and we met with Debra who was our contact there. She was real close to my dad in age and she was very nice and diligent in following up with everything. We had lunch and the food was delicious. The rooms were very spacious with huge closets. It had a living room, bedroom, a full bathroom and kitchen. It had a beautiful view and the building had no smell. You could tell the residents were very well kept, they seemed very happy and they were interacting with others.

I visited this facility

I had a very positive visit. My sister made a trip there with my mother that I had arranged and I followed it up with a visit separately when I was down there. My sister's visit was a little more involved because she was with my mother and they had lunch there. They experienced the dining room and all that. They really liked that. They had special parking with our names when we showed up. It was just a very informative, friendly and inclusive visit. But I wasn't crazy about their bathroom. I didn't think they were truly handicapped accessible that they should have been. She actually had a safer bathroom in her own home. You had to climb over a little curve to get in and out of the shower and there wasn't a grip where it needed to be when you get in and out. Then when I complained about it, they had showed me other apartment wherein they had upgraded a little more and they had add up the appropriate grip and cut out the curve. So, you still had entry that was lower. But there wasn't a seat in there. It was like you gained and lost. That was the biggest downfall. It was the most challenging for an elderly living alone. The place was also rather big and a lot to navigate for an elder lady. But everything else was a homerun. The apartment was spacious, clean and nicely done. The dining room was great.

Hey everyone. I just wanted to post a review about this place because it was fairly pleasant to visit. I recently had to move my mother to this facility because she didn't like being alone. She actually was excited to go unlike the others that i have heard of. I heard a few horror stories about assisted living homes but i decided to give it a shot. My first impression were fairly good, we checked her in and we explored the building. First things first,it feels like you are in a hotel. It looks like a hotel and even smells like a hotel. Her room was pretty fancy, looking out towards the pool. They boast a nice array of things to do, such as billiards, computer labs, libraries, a heated pool. and some fun classes and such. The employees seemed very kind and willing to help us out if we needed anything. The only complaint that i have is the patio by the pool seemed a little dirty when i visited; maybe it was just dirty the day i went im not sure. Overall it seems like a nice place for her, she has only been there for a month so hopefully she will like it more after time goes on.

It was very clean. The food was good, and the rooms were fair in size. I like the idea where they take the residents to doctors and things like that. The staff was very friendly and very knowledgeable. Location was excellent. It was across the street from a park.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I'm at Pinecrest Place and we definitely know that we made the correct decisions because of two reasons. Number one: We're not pressured to do anything that we don't want to do and you don't feel like you're in a caregiver place. Number two: There is excellent transportation available. It's a very good place. I would recommend it to anybody. There are all sorts of activities; they change by the month and there's a pool. Cleanliness is excellent. It's not what I would call a huge facility. It's probably of moderate size compared to the size of the other ones in the area. I think the whole facility is between twenty and thirty years old.
