"My sister, Donna (Pierce) Skidmore, a victim of Alzheimer' s and bedfast, was in Pine View's care for 3 months before her death, July 4, 2014.  I visited her on a regular basis during this time.  I also visited others while I was there, which took me to the north, east, and west wings.  All the nurses and other staff members were always very helpful and friendly and made you feel welcome.  The rooms and halls were always clean, neat and in proper order.  I was in Donna's room during times when she was being cared for and felt she was being taken care of in a very professional and proper manner.  I would recommend Pine View Manor to everyone in need of care." - Ralph O Pierce

"Dear Pine View Family,


From the very bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for all the love, understanding, respect, and patience shown to Mom and to our family the last 20 months. 

Mom didn't want to leave her home and was determined not to be happy anywhere but home.  However, you folks won her over.  The last months she called PV home and she would light up when any of you entered the room, smiled at her, waved at her, or called her name.  There were a few of you who could talk her into anything because she wanted to please you.  You were so helpful to Mom's family, giving us guidance, advice, and assistance when we weren't sure what was happening or what we should do next.  For that, we are so appreciative. 

You folks have a tough job to do, you do it with dignity and compassion.  Mom's at peace now...You will move on to put happiness and security in the lives of others.  Continue to do it with the passion you showed Mom and her family. Our community is so lucky to have you. God Bless each and every one of you!"

"My Aunt Betty passed away recently here at Pine View Manor, and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this facility.  I have had family members tell me how great the staff were when their loved one was here or how compassionate when their loved one passed away, and I experienced this same kindness and compassion.  Even when my aunt was not loveable, the staff was patient and caring with her.  They understood her pain and the reasons why she might be grouchy.  During the time when she was passing, the staff just came in to check on her.  Not just the staff assigned to her hall, but other staff members would come in when they got a free moment,  just to tell her they loved her or to hold her hand. Some would take their break, and sit with her.  All shifts did this! You have no idea how much this meant to me and my family.  They sent us a snack/drink cart, even though I work here and can get my own things. The staff brought me blankets, pillows, and helped rearrange the room for extra seating.  They also brought me lots of coffee throughout the nights.  I have always felt that it takes a special person to work in the nursing home and it is a tough job.  I have also always felt that we have a caring staff and we have a wonderful nursing home.  But, I don't think even I realized how much the staff really do care.  I had so many staff members share stories about her with me.  They really did know her likes and dislikes, and they knew about her life and shared stories with her. They were her friends.  There were staff that brought DVD's in of her favorite shows, movies, and of course, Elvis Presley! My Aunt was always more of a loner than a social butterfly, but she had more friends at Pine View Manor, than I think she ever had her entire adult life.  She enjoyed life more here, than she has for years prior to coming to PVM.  I had staff tell me they felt like she was a part of their family or they felt like she was a Grandma to them.  Many staff shared tears with me and gave me lots of hugs.  I want to thank all of the staff at PVM for the wonderful and compassionate care, for being so patient and understanding when she wasn't the easiest person to get along with, and for being her friend and part of her family while she was here the past 5 years.  I will never forget you!!"
