By Lenville

I visited this facility

Pine Oaks is clean, but it would not fit our needs. The dining room was clean.

I am/was a resident of this facility

Pine Oaks Assisted Living Community is a great facility and I love it. They keep the place clean. What I like most about this facility is the food, and we also have bingo.

I visited this facility

I had a walk-in tour in Pine Oaks. I didn't really have an interaction with their staff, although it was the marketing person that walked me around there. They worked hard to get Dad evaluated even though we didn't choose to go there. The facility was very clean and nice. However, it was probably the least appealing where it looked like everyone was kind of fit in the same level of care. For someone like Dad who is starting in the early stages of dementia, I would rather have him somewhere where he wasn't positioned with someone who was aggressive. Their residents were a lot worse than he was and I just didn't like him to be exposed to that until he had to be. After seeing the way how it was compared to other facilities, I didn't spend more time with them. what I like best about this facility though was that they have an outdoor area that he can go out without supervision and they have secure outdoor memory care. I would recommend this place.

I visited this facility

Pine Oaks assisted living impressed me with their upper-class facility. Their landscaping was beautiful, their location was convenient to nearby shopping, and the building was beautiful. When I visited, it was nothing like most assisted living facilities... It was a non-institutionalized version of a nursing home; where the elderly would feel "at home" rather than in a nursing home.
