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.
