The Wit and Wisdom of Aging Luncheon: A luncheon to benefit Pines of Sarasota Rehabilitation and Senior Care Community was held Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at Michael’s On East.

The compassion, activism and generosity of the Sarasota community is nowhere more apparent than in its support of the annual Pines of Sarasota Foundation Wit and Wisdom event. This event, and others the Foundation may hold throughout the year, do more than raise the funds needed to accomplish Pines’ mission of caring, they provide the opportunity to be part of the Pines family, to mix and mingle with like-minded, involved members of our community, and to have a great time for a good cause.

The mission of Pines of Sarasota, a not-for-profit organization, is to offer individuals a fulfilling life in a rehabilitation and senior care community that satisfies their health and lifestyle needs, all with the confidence of knowing they will always be secure, well-cared for and welcomed.

Our vision is to be a world-class leader in the care, nurturing and housing of people as they age. We seek to establish new standards and best practices in residential living, rehabilitation, skilled nursing and memory care; and to inspire and educate caregivers throughout the world in our effort to continously improve the physical and emotional health and well-being of older people.

Present/CEO’s Letter From David Sylvester

Dear Friend:

D Sylvester SmallIt has been more than 65 years since Pines of Sarasota first pioneered skilled nursing care in our region. Since then, we’ve become the preeminent not-for-profit provider of rehabilitation services, geriatric healthcare, education and support. Our leadership has rightly earned us the community’s respect and trust and a Bronze National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association. We continue to work conscientiously to maintain those standards. And that is where I believe Pines of Sarasota will continue to flourish now and into the future.

Why do I feel that way?

First, the need for quality healthcare for our senior population has never been greater. At Pines of Sarasota, we have a solution through a state-of-the-art rehabilitation and senior care campus comprised of the area’s finest facilities, technologies and programs. And they’re led by health care professionals who are second to none.

Second, as an organization dedicated to seniors and their well-being, we are devoted to continuing a progressive leadership role pioneering new programs and introducing new technologies that advance the standard of care one patient at a time.

If you want to be certain you or your loved one is receiving the kindest, yet most advanced standard of care available, you’ll want to choose Pines of Sarasota. We look forward to continuing to meet the ever-growing rehabilitation and senior care needs of our community.

David Sylvester

President and CEO
