Wellness The Crossing

Independence is worth holding on to.

When dignity needs assistance and you go looking for assisted living in Lufkin, TX, don’t be surprised to discover how people can start to flourish in Assisted Living at PineCrest in East Texas. If your particular challenges emerged slowly (rather than suddenly – say, following surgery), chances are good that you’ve been compensating little by little without even knowing it, with your independence being gradually compromised. So, once that gentle touch of Assisted Living helps you begin to feel like you’re on top of your game again, the pronounced sense of independence will feel remarkable.

Short-term visit for you, a break for your caregiver.

There are lots of reasons for a short-term stay in Assisted Living. These include renovations to your home while it’s made accessible for you; giving your caregiver a few weeks or months off, sometimes on short notice; giving yourself an opportunity to “test the waters” at PineCrest prior to making a commitment, or similarly, helping to introduce a skeptical loved one to the benefits of Assisted Living. Regardless, whether you or your loved one is coming from Independent Living or directly from the community, contact us about a short-term stay.

Elegant spaces, interesting lives.

Pricing in assisted living starts at approximately $3,500; however, the rates may vary based on the choice of residence and the customized care plan that our expert nursing staff develop to ensure that your loved is safe and secure in their new home. Ask our team about setting up a complimentary health assessment to learn what the cost may be for your loved one. Additionally, some may find that their costs may be offset by a long term care insurance policy, if applicable, or a veteran’s benefit for those who qualify.

That’s when the true benefits of life in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community) become evident. In addition to Assisted Living, we provide round-the-clock care for residents in Memory Support, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation. These neighborhoods are usually for those recovering from illness, injury or surgery; or who simply need more long-term supervision or support.
