Caring. Committed. Christian.
For nearly 125 years, Pinecrest Community, located in Mt. Morris, Illinois, has offered older adults the opportunity to be a part of a caring community. Since its founding, Pinecrest has continuously found new ways of servicing our residents, enhancing their well being, individuality and self-worth.
Pinecrest Community has a heritage of more than 120 years of caring for seniors. Originally started by the Church of the Brethren as a home to care for the elderly and orphans in 1893, Pinecrest has developed into a vibrant, active community of over 200 seniors living in active-adult cottage homes at Pinecrest Grove, Pinecrest Village independent apartments and homes, Pinecrest Manor intermediate and skilled care living, and Pinecrest Terrace, a state of the art specialized Alzheimer's/Dementia care center.
Today, Pinecrest's Christian heritage and church affiliation still guide our efforts to do what we've always done, and what we do best: providing our residents with the resources to lead rich, rewarding lives.
