Independent Living Reviews for Pinecrest

August 05, 2019


I visited this facility

Pinecrest was good and we liked the place. The deposit fee was a bit much though. Overall, it was pleasant and nice, but I think it could be upgraded. The grounds could be a little nicer. Personnel-wise, it's all good. The size, layout, and amenities are great. The rooms are clean, but I think they could keep the exterior a little cleaner.

Pinecrest was beautiful and clean. I saw two apartments; both were beautifully arranged and very convenient. I thought Pinecrest was great. I like it very much. The dining area was beautiful, clean, and set up nicely. It would be an enjoyable place to have lunch. They had a group in there singing songs. It was very interesting. The gentleman who did the tour was very knowledgeable, very friendly and very pleasant. Everyone there was very pleasant.

Pinecrest has a nice dining room and nice greeting areas. They're doing some upkeep with the facilities, which is very nice. There are walking areas around the community. They have garden areas with places to sit and nice balconies. Their 1- and 2-bedroom units are much larger than at other facilities. They have games, reading clubs, and travel opportunities where they take residents out. It's definitely in a section of town that is devoted primarily to senior living. There are many complexes nearby in the same area of the town, which is the senior side, and it is close to the medical facility. It's a nice setting. The cleanliness was good. The staff was friendly and informative, and it looked like many of them have been there for quite awhile.

Pinecrest was very nice and offered a lot of different things, but it was just beyond my budget. The staff was very friendly, informative, and answered all my questions. They seemed to be very friendly, attentive, and answered the residents' questions. It seemed like a very nice place to be. The rooms were very spacious, nice, laid out well, and they offered several amenities to go with them. It was exactly what I was looking for if only I could afford it.

My mother is at Pinecrest right now. We chose this community because of all the different amenities, everything is included, and it is a very nice place. The staff is very good, and they work for the residents. They have arts and crafts, Bible studies, exercise every day, bingo twice a week, prayer group twice a week, and entertainment. They have something every day for the residents. My mother has a nice, one-bedroom apartment. On the scale of 1 to 10, I would say it is probably a 9. It has a big bathroom, a big living room, and a small kitchen area. The food is great. The common dining area is very clean and very inviting. It looks like a luxury hotel.

Pinecrest was very nice. The staff and the residents were very friendly. The rooms were a little small but adequate. They even invited us for a meal, and it was excellent. There seemed to be enough activities at the facility, but it was just too expensive for us.

My father used to live at Pinecrest, and they were wonderful. The only problem was they changed managers about every six months. They had a beautiful two-bedroom, two-bath apartment. I've eaten there before, and the food was delicious. They had musical groups that come in, and they've got bingo and little horse races. They have lots of things for the seniors to do. What impressed me most were probably the apartments. The apartments were very nice.

It took me a long time to find a community for my father in law. We found Pinecrest last March and he absolutely loved it. The people are fantastic. They got three gourmet meals a day and it's like a cruise ship only you're not cruising anywhere. His room is a studio but there's plenty of room for all of his stuff. It's got a little kitchen, a bathroom and a back deck that's gorgeous.
