I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

Pinecrest is lovely, clean, and neat. They have a lot of nice activities and provide a lot of services. They now have a doctor who goes there once a week for any issues. This is probably the best place in the Hickory area. They have a lot of musical things like piano and singing. They take the residents to shopping once or twice a week. They also do cards and bingo. My aunt never really had any complaints about the food there.

I Visited This Facility

I had a very nice visit at Pinecrest. They had enough room and it was fully furnished, but you can bring your own furniture. Two residents came up and talked to me. All of the staff was very nice, from the office staff to the food preparation staff. They tried to welcome me and made me feel good. They had programs that you can attend, and places where you can travel, but it was a little expensive for me.

My mom is in Pinecrest and she moved in about a month ago. It's a wonderful place, it feels very much like a resort, and the residents have their own little apartments. The food is really good, she gets to exercise and go on runs, and it's set in a neighborhood area. It's close to grocery stores and doctor's offices, and they offer transportation to local stores. She's very happy. She has a 1-bedroom apartment with a living room, and a good size balcony, that looks out over a secluded nook with plants and trees. She's got a big bedroom with a big bathroom that has a walk-in shower.

I wrote a review several months ago but because it was very negative, they did not post it. People have a right to know the truth. Although it looks nice on the outside, once you get inside the walls of the units, its another story. Housekeeping is a joke. Within 3 months of my dad and his wife moving in there, he fell in the elevator and broke his hip and she was out for an unsupervised walk behind the property and fell and died of a brain injury. The people at the front counter are volunteers who live there and hand out keys to anyone. Very important items and money were stolen from my dad.

Pinecrest was very nice, and I would recommend it to anyone who could afford it. The whole place was clean, modern, updated, and upscale. The manager or administrator was very nice and accommodating. It was conveniently located near grocery stores, drugstores, churches, and shopping centers.

I spent a night at Pinecrest. The staff member I talked to was fine and very kind. We had several conversations on the phone and through emails before I went over there. He is a great representative for that community. The room was fine, but I felt confined, and I’m not ready for that. I ate one meal, and the food was OK. My biggest issue was there were too many people in walkers and wheelchairs, and I just couldn’t live in that environment.
