Retire In Lufkin

Where Your Story Becomes

gagliardi retired Health & Home

Sue Gagliardi had always been a big city girl. Living in major metropolitan areas came with the comfort of knowing big city medicine was right down the road. When she and her husband Frank moved to Lufkin in 2007, medical issues weren’t at the forefront. But Sue’s situation changed. “I just couldn’t get rid of something in my chest. My physician and his team wouldn’t rest until they determined what was going on.” In her opinion that diagnosis came from the compassionate, committed and thorough work-ups her Lufkin team prescribed. Sue adds, “The medical community is top notch, and the equipment can’t be matched anywhere. We never considered leaving town to determine what was wrong with me. My health was—and is—in incredibly good hands right here in Lufkin.”

There’s No Place Like Home

“When we move, we want to move once.” That’s what Joe and Codie Kilgore decided when they chose Lufkin for their retirement home. The retired minister and retired nurse had taken care of elderly parents and knew they didn’t want to put that responsibility on their own children. When the Lynchburg, Virginia couple chose Lufkin, it was in large part because of PineCrest Retirement Community. As Codie says, “At PineCrest, our needs may change, but we’ll always be able to call PineCrest home.” That continuum of care and the spirit of the place are what sold them on PineCrest and Lufkin. The Kilgores are active, healthy and engaged retirees. They rest easy knowing that when they have a health challenge, PineCrest and its array of services are in place to care for them – without ever leaving home.
