Licensed Nursing Home

Making the decision to admit your loved one into a nursing home is never easy. We understand how it can feel like you're letting go, giving up or taking the easy way out. But we want you to know that Pinecrest Manor will treat your family like it's our own. Our licensed, skilled nursing home has been providing exceptional 24-hour care since 1970. And with 138 beds and a convenient location on the campus of Penn Highlands Elk in St. Marys, we want to be your loved one's home away from home.

What is resident life like in our skilled nursing home

Our residents are accustomed to living on their own or receiving personalized care, so our nursing home works hard to deliver an experience that's catered to their choices. We provide skilled nursing care, long-term care living and short-term rehabilitative stays following a surgery, illness or injury, which may require physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

Because we are a skilled nursing home, our team consists of professionals equipped to carry out a high level of medical care. Among our team, you'll find therapists, physicians, registered and licensed nurses, social workers, dietitians, activities assistants and nursing aides, all willing and able to meet the goals of our residents. Our nursing home's Reflections Memory Care Support Unit focuses on residents with Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive impairments, working to introduce social settings, daily activities and routines.

What amenities does Pinecrest Manor offer

The amenities at Pinecrest Manor far exceed what you might find at other nursing homes. We offer semi-private and private rooms, with all residents receiving their own bathrooms. Telephone and cable hook-ups are available at no extra charge, and our serene gardens and outdoor walkways provide the perfect setting for a tranquil stroll.
