Stacie Millett Rechlicz, R.N., is committed to helping seniors and their families navigate the transition from their current home to a safe and nurturing senior living environment. “The Pines approach was to create a better lifestyle for our seniors that cultivates independence and vitality but also provides amazing personal care. We provide a warm, nurturing home-like environment with the latest technology, enabling residents to thrive with dignity at a level that matches their individual needs,” she explained.
The Pines also has a 24-bed secured Memory Care Unit with programming that reflects the understanding of the special needs of seniors with memory-related issues.
Our family of caregivers at the Pines is hands-on within the facility, hence our motto “where our family cares for yours.”
“We can not do this alone here at the Pines. The care and compassion our excetional staff provides residents and their families is a fundamental ingredient in the success of The Pines,” she explained.
As administrator, Rechlicz is responsible for the overall management of the facility.
Earning a BSN from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and a master’s degree in health administration from St. Joseph’s University, she worked as a registered nurse with kidney and liver transplant patients at Thomas Jefferson Hospital and in utilization review/quality management. She was the UR/QA department manager at Roxborough Hospital and after her return to the area, she changed hats and owned the Golden Goose Toy Store in Clarks Summit for 11 years.
