What is a Residential Care Facility?
As a Residential Care Facility (RCF) we are able to provide services to independently mobile adults whose functional capabilities may have been impaired but who do not require hospital or nursing home care on a daily basis. We offer general assistance with normal activities of daily living. Pinecrest is held to high standards and follows the requirements as directed by Arkansas's Office of Long Term Care and the Department of Human Services.
Do You Provide Medicine Management and Personal Care?
Yes, Pinecrest offers many amenities such as medication assistance and personal care at a reasonable price. Medication pillboxes are maintained by the family and are kept in a secure area and provided to the resident as instructed by the physician and/or family.
Personal care is another added service provided 3 days a week to assist you with bathing and personal self-care and hygiene.
What is Your Covid-19 Policy for Residents and Visitors?
We are proud to say that Pinecrest reported zero cases of Covid during the
2-year height of the pandemic. We worked closely with the residents, healthcare providers and the families to ensure social distancing and other preventive measures were followed consistently. Currently, essential employees are required to wear masks while interacting with residents. Masks are not required but encouraged for visitors coming to Pinecrest but temperature checks and sign-in is required. If you have recently tested positive or been exposed to someone who was positive for Covid we ask that you delay your visit for at least 5 days after testing negative or quarantining.
What Amenities are Included in the Monthly Rent?
You will find many of the comforts you are accustomed to while relaxing in your beautiful room or while joining other friends in the common areas. Each room has individual temperature controls and private baths with step-in showers. All utilities are included in the monthly rent as well as Internet and Cable. Our friendly staff will also ensure your home and bathroom are cleaned once a week, your linens are fresh, your clothes are washed once a week and trash is removed in a timely manner. Three hot meals a day are also included with rent along with a coffee station and snacks. Our dietary staff is known around the community for delicious meals and desserts made from scratch. Adjustments can be made to accommodate dietary restrictions or preferences.
Do You have a Salon?
Not only do we have a salon on site, but we have a licensed cosmetologist on staff!! Each Wednesday is salon day and one of our favorite days of the week. Whether you need a wash and go, a perm, some color or just a trim, Terry Whisenhunt has you covered. Her prices are very reasonable she will keep you well entertained during the appointment.
Do You Provide Transpotation to Doctor Appointments?
We rely on the support of the family and friends to arrange or supply transportation of the residents to the their appointments. In case of an urgent need for transportation an employee may volunteer to transport the resident. This however may incur an additional charge.
