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.

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.

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.
