I contacted Jennifer (Sales Director) and told her my step-father is currently in a rehab facility post surgery (non ambulatory with moderate/severe dementia) and my mother would need assisted living facility services. Jennifer initially was very pleasant and had a nurse perform a medical/cognitive assessment when my mother was given a tour of the facility. The determination was made that she qualified for A.L.F. with level 1 care services. Jennifer told me that a nurse would contact my step-fathers rehab and make an assessment to determine the level of care necessary. Jennifer contacted me and stated he qualified for A.L.F. with level 3 care services. I was excited that my parents would be living together in a 2br / 2ba apartment. I completed all the necessary paperwork and to receive their advertised incentives, I had to sign the lease and give them a check for over $8000.00. Everything appeared to be falling into place until I contacted the rehab social worker who gives the patient assessments and determines proper care. He stated he had not talked to anyone from Elmcroft and that my step-father would not qualify for assisted living due to his continued medical decline. He was unable to stand/walk and would need further rehabilitation. He stated that a long term nursing center would be more appropriate after rehab. My step-father would not be able to live at Elmcroft. I was stunned to hear this since Jennifer assured me that my parents would be able to live together based on their assessment. This was a primary purpose for choosing Elmcroft of Pinecrest.. I was referred to Elaine (Move-in coordinator) which I find ironic because there was not one thing coordinated about this entire process....from paperwork, last minute Covid 19 tests, move-in dates changed on two separate occasions. Forms that need to be completed by their staff I personally had to make phone calls to get completed. When the move-in date came we had to use their moving company due to Covid 19 restrictions (which I understand)...However, I had to contact the moving company twice...once because they forgot the headboard and the other because they left a tv remote in their truck...my mom had to flip the pillowtop mattress because they put it on upside down plus we were charged $125.00 an hour for their mandatory service...Additionally, the cable tv service that is provided by Elmcroft (Spectrum basic service) was not working so my mother was in a new place unable to watch tv for 3 days (you would think these services would be checked and confirmed before the move-in) When I asked that they check it out they could not reach their maintenance man, Joe...I then attempted to contact Jennifer by phone...they said she was there but did not answer the phone. I left a message for her to contact me and never heard back.(I am not surprised)...I honestly have never seen such incompetence in a facility that takes care of our senior citizens and I have personally spent over 30 years in the medical field and law enforcement...They were planning on moving my mother to a 1 br /1 ba since my step-father will not be living there...My mom simply wants to be near her husband....I feel we were deceived by applying an incorrect assessment so we would sign the lease....that's a shame because people should ALWAYS come before profit...If you are considering Elmcroft I recommend reading ALL the reviews....not just the good ones...please consider carefully for your loved one....I know I will be making alternate decisions....by going back to the beginning....find a trustworthy place that can take care of both of my parents...not in the same room but at least in the same facility...God Bless!

My family moved my mother into Elmcroft of Pinecrest December 2019 and the place was decorated beautifully. They had approximately 27 Christmas trees displayed throughout the place and a lot of Christmas festivities during that time. The staff has been very professional and is always available to talk through procedures. I worked with Jennifer for 5 months prior to making the decision and she was always helpful and continues to be that way today. Since the epidemic, it has been challenging for most Senior living facilities, however, what we witnessed, the Staff has gone above and beyond in keeping everyone secure and safe. Thank you again to all the staff at Elmcroft of Pinecrest.

Finding placement for an active elderly parent was not easy. My siblings and I did our homework and checked out numerous locations in Pinellas County. We were delighted when we found Pinecrest; as it offered everything that our mom desired. Our mom is a vivacious 78 year old who takes advantage of the variety of activities offered at Pinecrest. In addition, she looks forward to the daily meals and appreciates the opportunity to request specific dishes. We feel truly blessed that our mom was a resident at Pinecrest when the Pandemic broke out. She feels safe and is still receiving all of the Physical Therapy services required to keep her active state. Thank you so much to the Pinecrest staff for ensuring that our mom is safe and well taken care of in this time of uncertainty. This past year has been amazing for our mom and we look forward for many more to come.

My mom has been a resident at Pinecrest since November 2019. She is very happy there. I am most grateful for the diligent job everyone at Pinecrest has done to keep the residents safe during the C-19 Virus. The friendly staff has been very accommodating to moms needs and ours during this time.Her apartment is beautiful and she enjoys the food. I also look forward to sharing some dining experiences with her once it is safe to do so. The staff is also working hard at keeping the residents engaged and communicate daily while the quarantine has put some limitations on the activities. I am very grateful that she lives in Pinecrest !

A truly wonderful place. My Mom came to live here in late February. Everyone made her feel so welcomed. She quickly became comfortable and excited about her new life here. She loved the dining room and the various activities going on. She also commented to me about how safe she feels here. When the lockdown from Covid19 occurred, we were concerned that she would feel so isolated. But the caring staff made sure to keep all the residents connected by organizing games via the TV. They also deliver the meals to each residents apartment. The staff is so warm and caring and the safety protocols to keep the residents safe during this health crisis has been extremely thorough. I afraid to think about what my Moms situation would have been if we hadnt made this move. She would have been in her house, alone, during this entire shutdown. I am very happy and grateful that we discovered Elmcroft of Pinecrest.

My mother lives in the independent living section of Pinecrest. She feels well cared for which is extremely important to me, her son. Additionally, and especially now, she feels safe and protected. Pinecrest has done a phenomenal job keeping everyone protected from the COVID-19 virus and informed during an extremely difficult and scary time for residents of facilities like this. Cudos to the leadership there!My mother has also made good friends and enjoys her bible study and a host of other activities that are provided. The facility itself is clean and well maintained and has a guest suite right down the hall from mothers apartment which is extremely convenient and reasonably priced. I always try to stay there during my visits to see my mother and I hope that some day sooner than I currently expect that I can return there for another visit. Finally, the staff there is extremely kind, responsive and competent. I am very thankful that my mother is able to be there now but more importantly, that SHE is thankful to be there.

My mother has been at Pinecrest since October 2019. It is a great place. She loves the food and all the activities available for her. The weekly grocery trips are convenient since she is no longer driving. Since the Covid-19 outbreak they have done an outstanding job keeping my mom safe and taking all precautions to make sure she stays healthy. I am so happy for the care she is getting now and always. I know we made the right decision when looking for the perfect senior living place for her.

My parents have lived at Elmcroft of Pinecrest for a little more than a year and absolutely love it. They have a beautiful, spacious apartment in Independent Living and they rave about the amenities, the kind staff, and numerous planned social events. My parents were warmly welcomed in a very organized way when they moved in, and they have made a long list of new friends from many corners of the world. We are ALL extremely happy to have found Elmcroft.

My mom moved on in March when the pandemic started, her furniture was delayed. They gave her a guest suite until her furniture arrives to accommodate her, then went into lock down and still gave her the accommodations until her furniture can be moved in. As of today they have not had 1 person with the coronovirus (knock on wood). I am really looking forward to when they can do all their activities again, but, as I always tell my mom shess safe there.

My father lived at Brookdale Pinecrest for about a year. He had a spinal injury and difficulty walking. Later we found he had Cancer. He really liked the staff and nurses at the facility. However, there were a few issues we had problems with; The cost of his care, since he actually needed assistance in an assisted living facility, immediately went from $4,200 base price to $6,700 - $6,900 per month. Two months after his move in I received a pharmacy bill for $2400. His pharmacy bills had never been over about $150 mo for the past 7 years. Turns out Brookdale has a contract with a pharmacy that guages customers who have not choice on which pharmacy to use. For example; he paid less than $6 for a bottle of Lactulose at CVS. They charged $40 per bottle. Even VITAMINS had to be bubble wrapped in individual servings. It was absolutely REDICULOUS! One of the staff spilled his urine bag on the carpet. They made no attempt to shampoo the carpets. His apartment reeked of urine for the remainder of his stay. The toilet was often found with feces all over the seat and sides of the bowl. He was unable to go by himself so there is no doubt staff saw the mess and failed to clean it. The floors in his were usually dirty. Cleaning of his apartment was very minimal. That fancy dining room......... not for assisted living. They had a plain run down dining room. When he transferred to nursing, we moved everything but a hospital bed frame. The staff told us it would be $140 fee for furniture left behind. The charged us $942 for a BED!! Since his bills were paid in advance, we did not pay the current bill. They had the audacity to charge a $250 late fee........ for someone who moved out! Since Freedom Square Seminole is owned by the same company and after 40 days since his passing we have yet to receive a $7,300 refund on his account. They are REALLY quick to charge a late fee but they sure take their time in refunding customer money. Overall, he liked the attention he got at Brookdale, but it is very apparent that money is their primary motivation. After reading about their pay scale for employees and how they avoid full time employees with benefits, it is understandable how they have so many issues.
