The Benefits of Pines Edge
Pines Edge is Medicare certified with multiple additional insurances accepted. Pines Edge households feature a design far different from the hospital model long associated with nursing home care. Residents enjoy individual households with private suites and welcoming shared common spaces. The “Small House” design offers benefits of both form and function.
Gone are the long corridors, shared bedrooms, and sterile environments that were the hallmark of the past generations of nursing homes and convalescent institutions. Instead, here at Pines Edge you’ll find small intimate settings, cozy fireplaces and welcoming kitchens, surrounded by private suites with private showers. Beautiful, elegant spaces please the eye and brighten the spirit. Shared spaces become more inviting, promoting social interaction and whole-person wellness. And that is a tenet of North Hill’s PurposeFULL Living philosophy.
The Pines Edge mission is to enrich the lives of older adults by anticipating needs, respecting preferences, and providing an outstanding level of personalized and consistent care. The “Small House” design supports this by putting the primary focus on the needs, wants and wishes of our residents. Thanks to the Small House model – whether for short term rehabilitative care or a longer term stay – Pines Edge residents are provided with superior nursing care, elegant dining, and opportunities to live lives of purpose. They develop meaningful relationships with each other and with our Care Partners in a small, home environment.
