Today’s Special Feature

“After eight weeks of therapy at Pine Acres Rehab & Living Center, I’ve gone home…HOME, what a beautiful word! Thanks, Pine Acres – you brought it all about.

Thanks to the Administrator who really cares about her patients – admissions policies to discharge procedures at Pine Acres ‘hum’ along seamlessly. Teams all working in unison: skilled, compassionate, caring Nurses and C.N.A.’s, a Therapy Department that takes the time to assess each patient’s needs and then puts in place a plan for achieving expected goals, Activities Director and staff who offer everything from bingo, cards, crafts, costume parties, dog shows, ecumenical religious services, puzzles, sing-a-longs, tai chi and more. Food! I like to eat and I soon realized that somewhere in the kitchen there was a Chef who went about planning a great variety of menus and was overseeing a staff that could deliver.

I am truly thankful for this nice, brown brick building protected by such tall, spiked pines at 1212 South Second Street. While there, I found excellent care, gentle kindness and always cheerfulness.

Thank you to all Pine Acres staff and Blessings to you!”
