Justin,You are a great administrator and a pleasure to work with. Our experience at Pine Acres was very positive all six weeks JOHN was in Rehab. The OT/PT staff addressed all his specific problems and their rotation ( Dawn, Narissa, Singh, and SUNY ) was valuable to JOHN. The nurses (Wendy, Elijah, and Kiara) and the aids ( Rodney and Mariah )were very caring and really helped him recover. Janine at the front desk was always helpful and took care of everything I asked. John’s broken TV was replaced by Frank (also a great asset ) within hours, and it was not an easy job.One suggestion, make salt and pepper and butter pats easily available to patients who are not on a restricted diet. I had to go to the kitchen frequently to request them and Jamel was always accommodating. The food tasted much better with these condiments.Thank you for everything.Mimi for JOHN ROZEK.
My dear brother had some items stolen very sad to report this. The owner/Administrator was not at all concerned about this which is quite cold not at all compassionate.

Care at Pine Acres Healthcare was a POSITIVE experience. We had two weeks respite stay for a medically complex, immobile patient at Pine Acres in July 2023. Compared to the quality of care at four other facilities in Morris County he received in past, when after two days in their care ending up in hospital, Pine Acres is at the top of my list. Patient care needs were extensive and met well. The admission director Justin M. was detailed, personable, and efficient. Nursing staff and aids are caring and responsive to concerns. Rooms and amenities are kept clean and odor free. Will be back again!

Late in 2022, we suddenly needed a long-term care facility for my elderly Mom. After looking at several facilities, we liked what we saw at Pine Acres and Justin made the whole admitting process easy and straightforward. Even though we liked what we saw and heard on our tour we were still apprehensive with the unknown territory ahead and the horror stories you hear about long-term care facilities. It was not long before we realized we made the right choice. My sister and I went very often in the beginning to make sure she was cared for and we were so pleasantly comforted with the care she was getting. The staff is always very courteous and responsive to all her needs and any concerns that we bring up. Yes, there are always things that come up that need attention, but they always resolve the issues. They have several doctors making the rounds and a nutritionist who stays on top of her diet and contacts me periodically with updates. My Mom definitely needed medication for some erratic behavior she has always had and the psychiatrist they have was able to find the right mix of meds to stabilize her mood and she has been in excellent spirits. They have an optometrist as well as regular physicians who care for her. They contact you with any issues that may arise that you need to know about. There is a family meeting every quarter with the staff to update us on her condition. They even have a monthly meeting with the residents for them to air any complaints or concerns they have directly with the management. The management is always available and responsive if you have a concern. The activities people do an excellent job. I marvel at how they engage the residents in various activities and especially their patience level with each one personally, making sure they are all enjoying the activity of the day. Overall, not only does Pine Acres provide excellent care and keep my Mom clean and healthy, but equally important, I feel they give her dignity in the compassion and patience they show her. That's all I could ask of a long-term care facility.
I have been taking my mom to Pine Acres for about 5 to 6 years for respite care and I have nothing but positive things to say about this place. I truly love the home, the administration, nurses, nurses aides because they are simply amazing! They are caring , friendly and always go the e xtra mile to make sure your loved one is taken care of. My mom looks forward to going and spending time at Pine Acres. Justin the Director of the place is wonderful he is always available to assist me with any concerns or to make sure that my mother’s respite stay is the best one possible. The people treat my mom with such respect, love and warmth when she arrives and that gives me piece of mind! Thank you for just being amazing and having such a caring environment for our seniors.
I moved my loved one into Pine Acres just over a year ago. I feel so grateful there was a space open and so lucky to have found this facility! The staff keeps me apprised of his progress and if anything changes. Anyone involved in his care there shows great compassion and they've taken the time to get to know my brother and appreciate who he is and what he wants and needs. And, most importantly, my brother is happy living there.

My mom was a resident at Pine Acres for a little over 3 months. She sadly passed away on June 8th. The Pine Acres staff took very good care of her during her time there. My rather large family was able to visit on a regular basis and the staff was very accommodating. My mom smiled everytime the aids and nurses addressed her, which confirmed for us that she was being well cared for. If I had to do it over again, I would choose Pine Acres in Madison. I'm so glad we found this place for my mom's final days. 💓
My husband’s condition deteriorated during the Covid quarantine and he needed to be moved to the next level of care. Pine Acres was able to take him and begin to assess his needs. I have been impressed with the level of care he has been given over his almost 3 years as a resident. He is never left alone to just be even though he is bedridden, needs to be spoon fed and don’t really communicate. The staff talks to him and makes sure he hears everything that goes on in the activity room. He is not left to just be in his room. I applaud the staff for their care and kindness. Thank you.

No one wants to put their parent in a nursing home but when you have to, I was pleased with Pine Acres. My Mom was here for the last two months of her life. We were welcomed from the beginning. Justin Montanaro, the Manager, is very hands on and responsive. All of our questions were answered promptly. Facilities are very clean, staff is attentive. Our experience was very positive.

Our elderly father was in this rehab facility for 28 days and got great care. What a relief to know he was somewhere safe, clean, and supervised. From the moment we entered the facility you are greeted with friendly and helpful staff. The place is modern and aesthetically pleasing. I visited every weekend while my Dad was in their care and the staff was always helpful and friendly. The room and facility always appeared tidy and clean. His only complaint was some of the food was not to his liking however, he also supposed to follow diabetic/kidney friendly diet, so there's that. However, they do permit you to bring in homecooked food as long as it's properly dated and labeled. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for 24/7 care.

I moved my non-ambulatory mother from Florida to be near us in New Jersey. We chose Pine Acres for its clean, new facilities and for proximity to Morristown and Morristown Memorial Hospital. But we also were impressed that on the day we first visited we watched a male aide talking so lovingly with a man in a wheelchair in the hallway--the aide had no idea he was being watched and so his kindness was pure and natural.My mom unfortunately only lived here for four months before passing away last week, but her stay at Pine Acres was a very good experience for all of us. The nursing staff was attentive to her needs (if stretched thin as happens in all nursing facilities these days), and he rehab staff worked lovingly with her. When I was cleaning out her room two nurses and aides stopped in to give me a hug and reminisce fondly about my mom--they already knew her as a person and not a patient.I want to single out Justin Montanaro, Admissions Director, who is far more than just an admissions director. He provided us with excellent advice about various issues, took a personal interest in my mom (indeed, he greets all patients by name all the time while walking the halls), and tracked my mom's hospital stay to work better with us. Many thanks for helping make the last months of my mom's life easier for all of us.

My father is currently there recovering from a fractured hip. It seems that the level of care during the day is fine, but is lacking during the night. He needs assistance to get to and from the bathroom and there is a 45 minute to an hour delay in the staffs response time at night.

My mother was in Pine Acres for one year. She passed today. I can not say anything bad about Pine Acres. The nursing staff is amazing. The administration was great. I was always informed about everything. I have to give a huge thank you to Nurse Betty. She is such a caring person. My mother loved her. Thank you all for caring and taking care of my Mom.
