Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site

The convenience of Pinecrest's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.

Fitness Right at Home

Pinecrest residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

A walking club meets regularly to set destinations and count steps. Their current goal is to walk the distance from our community to Hawaii. A physical therapist is also available on-site through Bayada.


Let Us Serve You

Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Pinecrest's dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.

Our residents' favorite dish by far is corn beef and cabbage. Residents can participate in a food committee to offer feedback and suggestions to the chef. The chef hosts a monthly roundtable to communicate regularly with residents about their cuisine. Our chefs are highly experienced.


Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Hickory area and Pinecrest makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Our residents enjoy outings to the Blue Ridge Parkway for picnics and fall leaf watching. They also visit different local restaurants each month and enjoy the Hickory Crawdad baseball games.

Life is Never Boring

Pinecrest's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

Our residents can enjoy a walking path and tend to the community garden. Former residents and friends gather for card games on Sundays.

Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Pinecrest. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

Pinecrest residents enjoy WiFi access in common areas, as well as a computer for resident use and a Wii console for bowling. Pinecrest is highly responsive when it comes to resident needs for technology.

Residents can participate in a "Tech Tuesday" program where they can receive answer to their tech questions about computers, tablets and cell phones.

Travel and Adventure Is Available

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Lend a Helping Hand

At Pinecrest, many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. For example, the community hosts school supply drives in August and Toys for Tots at Christmas. Many teen groups visit the community regularly to volunteer.

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
