    My mother was here for over a year, She had early onset Alzheimers. I can not say enough about the staff that took care of her, From nursing, to housekeeping and all the others that go with it. Mom suddenly took a turn for the worse and they kept us informed, gave us support and at the end they catered to our every need. Bravo to you all! Be proud and know how very thankful we are for all of you.

    The list of completely inadequate behavior by the staff at Tierra Pines is extremely long. I will just name some of the issues: My mother was there for exactly two weeks. We transferred her to a wonderful facility at Morton Plant as soon as red flags kept popping up. In the two weeks my mom was there (straight from the hospital), she was not seen by the doctor in house even once. She was not given a shower or bath, even though we requested it numerous times. From the different comments made to her, our family feels she was treated so improperly and to a certain degree we felt she was being neglected. Mom's mind is clear and she was treated by some as a dummy or a fool.Would highly encourage you to run away if you are considering this place.This is my first rating ever and thought it be necessary.
