Independent Living Reviews for Whispering Pines Gracious Retirement Living

I visited this facility

The tour at Whispering Pines was excellent, and it was very thorough. They had just about every amenity you could imagine, and even a theater. I did have a meal there, and the food was very good. They have a nice community gathering room, and the facilities are beautiful. It’s independent, and they do have the option of in-home care if you need it, but it’s a separate arrangement. The room options were apartment type with a studio, 1-bedroom, or 2-bedrooms.

Whispering Pine was very nice. It was very clean, open, and airy. It was a pretty new facility -- maybe 2 years old -- and they had nice staff. However, everybody has to enter the dining room at the same time, and they seemed to be understaffed in the number of servers that they used to wait on people.

My dad is happy in a ground-level apartment in Whispering Pines. He loves it. The food is excellent. The people and staff are great. They have managers who live there. It offers good activities and a caring environment. Wendy, Chris and Jed, the manager, have been super helpful in terms of helping him get acclimated to the surroundings. It is very nice.

Whispering Pines is a beautiful, new community, under two years old. The setting is really nice, sitting back in a wooded area. They have nice trails around the facility, outdoor gardens, and beautiful patio with a big fire pit that the residents can use. The staff there has been excellent, so friendly, and helpful. The building itself doesn’t look like a retirement community. It’s much more updated, and everybody that we’ve run in to say that they just love it there. These people are active, so there’s always some activity going on in the facility, like trips in and out all of the time. They have gaming rooms and activity rooms that are always filled up with people using them. The food is excellent; they have an excellent kitchen staff and an executive chef that takes real pride in what he does. The food has always been good since we’ve been around and my parents seem to love it.

My mother has lived at WP for a year. I agree with all the great things that people have already said - its brand new, very clean, bright and cheerfully decorated with lots of windows, apartments come a range of sizes and rental rate options. The grounds and buildings are kept in awesome shape and the staff is wonderful and attentive. The monthly cost is very, very reasonable for rent plus food. The location is great for the seniors with cars as it is on a low-traffic road (Lead Mine) in beautiful north Raleigh, convenient to many, many stores, plazas, and Crabtree Mall. They also have a shuttle to take seniors without cars around too. The food was very good (however the kitchen staff turn over has been high. It is a new place and will take time to get an establish kitchen staff). One area for improvement is that the idea is for all residents to meet and eat together in the dining room for three meals a day so they socialize and get out of their rooms. However each meal takes a very, very long time to complete leaving the seniors spending a painfully large amount of time each day sitting in the dining room. This dining philosophy is sound for socializing but the implementation is not working as the seniors are bored and frustrated waiting for meals and spending too much time in the dining room.

My stepmother is moving into Whispering Pines mid-June. What I immediately liked about it was how attractive it was. It was well decorated. The tables in the dining room had table cloths and flowers on them. It also had a lot of windows. For independent living, I found it extremely affordable given the fact that they provide three meals a day. They had studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedroom apartments, and each of those had a small kitchenette with a full size refrigerator and cabinets above and below the sink. They also had room for a microwave oven. I really loved the fact that the majority of the apartments have either a balcony or a patio. In addition to that, they had a movie theater, and they show different films every week. They also had a bistro that had fresh fruits, ice cream, and snacks available all day long. They provide all the linens, sheets, and towels which they launder. They had a beautiful courtyard.

My mother is at Whispering Pines. It is beautiful. It's spacious, brand new, and bright. Activities are just great. Food is great. Transportation is wonderful. I love the place. It's great. They would show current movies. The place is very current, and that's what I love about it. The artwork is beautiful. They have bright colors everywhere. It has pretty carpeting. It smells good. It really is a wonderful place. The management teams are great. They're very upbeat people. They're very easy to work with. I really like the management team too. My mother has been there for three weeks now.

Beautiful new facility; Wide hallways; Tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork; Open and airy with lots of natural light in the dining area, hallways, and sitting areas. Has a movie theater with "stadium" type seating giving it that "actual movie theater feel; has a bistro with coffee and smoothie dispensers; library, media room with HD large screen television, chapel, beautiful exercise room with new equipment, hair salon. Really nice facility. The (1) bedroom and studio apartments that I visited were large and spacious with a balcony looking onto a beautiful serene wooded area. Prices / rental fees are reasonable for the area, but beware of the "community fee". They don't tell you this "up front" until you are ready to sign. It really amounts to being a month's rent or a deposit. Just wish they would tell folks that information "up front".

Whispering Pines was new, fresh, it looked good, and had an excellent plan to it. It also had great activities, and the food was good. The room was not spacious, but the staff was superb.
