    Elaine Ries on 28/Feb/2019:
    My sweet neighbor of 10 years had come to the time where she really needed more assistance than her family was able to provide. At 95 she was still driving herself to doctor appointments, hair appointment, grocery store, bank, out to lunch and shopping if that's what she had a mind to do. I can attest that she was a good driver for I rode with her on several occasions. At 97 years there was no option other than assisted living and of course she was not happy with that. She did however adjust and was happy in her surrounds for 3 years until illness necessitated even more care. At that time it became necessary to find a nursing home/rehab facility so she came to live at Whispering Pines a year ago. From the time they rolled her in from the hospital, she was greeting with wonderful warm smiles and really sweet concerns from all the staff. I was with her a lot during this transitional time and while a bit difficult at first she has adjusted and has nothing but glowing reports about where she now lives. She has never complained about the care she receives, the food or the staff. Use to, I would visit and find her still in her room. Now when I visit, I have to hunt for her. She is either in the main area visiting with the other residents, greeting anyone who walks by or I might find her in the eating area playing games or enjoying lunch or an afternoon snack. All this to say that - she is happy there and very well taken care of and we could not ask for anything more. She had now celebrated her 101st birthday and I fully expect to be celebrating more!!! She is a delightful woman and deserves only the best care.

    I am a healthcare provider that refers patients to this facility on a regular basis. The staff is always professional and polite and will go above and beyond to make my patients feel comfortable.

    My mother has been a resident for several years. I have always felt confident tha she is being provided the care needed on a daily basis. I am always informed of any changes in her care which gives me confidence that she is in a good place.

    My mother was a resident of Whispering Pines for five years. I was there every day. It was easy for me to have my mother taken care of there. It is reassuring for family members to know their resident is treated with care and kindness.

    My son has been a patient for the last six years… I can say I am happy with (his) care at Whispering Pines. …we can depend on his nursing care being taken care of. His room is always taken good care of. It is always clean in every way and pleasant. His food is good and served promptly.

    Recently I was a patient in Whispering Pines Lodge. Rehab was the reason I was a guest at this facility. The therapy staff was excellent in their instructions to me and physical assistants; they were wonderful. I would recommend (Whispering Pines Lodge) to anyone who is considering a place for their well-being.

    Byron S. on 15/Jun/2018:
    I would like to say that for a nursing home things are what I expected and had heard. In fact it is just the opposite. Smiling caring attentive staff. People who really care about the residents. I can see why this nursing home was rated one of the best in Longview. Thank you for making my stay here so nice and so welcome.
