About Us

Our Way of Life

Pine Grove Crossing provides Assisted Living and Memory Care with a personal touch. We offer suites and 16-hour licensed nursing care, 7 days a week, to our residents. We chose Pine Grove’s location based on the expansive views of the Front Range it provides, with access to medical care at nearby Parker Adventist Hospital. Our professional, caring team is committed to giving our residents the service they require with a dignified approach. Our setting gives people all the comforts of home with the support they need to live well.

While we take great pride in our beautiful grounds, new building interiors, and extensive amenities, it is the people of Pine Grove Crossing which make us stand out among assisted and memory care senior living communities. Our management team and associates are each bright stars in their own right, bringing dedication and heart to every task and event.

Sheila-1

Sheila Flaschberger

Vice President of Operations
For Sheila, helping Solera create an exceptional senior living experience catered to residents is a commitment she holds dear, inspired by the remembrance of a great aunt who faced memory loss. After graduating with a BA in dietetics, she began her career in the food and beverage area, working with multiple health care communities. That sparked an interest in all aspects of operations, so Sheila pursued and received her MBA, which led to serving as an associate executive director of a 474-unit community. Her experience includes overseeing various communities with Memory Care, Assisted Living and Independent Living throughout the U.S. and Canada. Helping Solera continue its focus on being different from the rest appeals to Sheila, who also likes to stand apart from the crowd. She’s been skydiving, avidly collects vinyl, is a foodie and, along with her husband, cares for parrots and rescue cats. Perfect vacation: a cabin in northern Wisconsin.
Nicole-1

Nicole Russell

Community Specialist
Nicole Russell brings over 20 years of experience in the senior living industry to her position of Aspyre Director, having previously served as an Executive Director and, before that, holding a role where she created, implemented and trained team members for a companywide Alzheimer’s and dementia program. Her passion for Alzheimer’s and dementia care began at the age of seven when her grandmother, Josie, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Nicole visited her grandmother often and would see many residents that had no family or visitors. From that point on, she knew that this is what she wanted to do for the rest of her life, and spent the remaining years visiting not only her grandmother, but other residents too. Nicole enjoyed spending time with them and learned that no matter their age, they are still a person, can give back, have a voice, and have things to look forward to. They deserve to have a purpose, a voice, and a care team that is going to support them, love them and create a relationship with them. At every point in her career, she has poured her heart and soul into giving people the knowledge, understanding and empathy to work with those who have a memory impairment. Nicole’s approach is to provide Memory Care residents with the best care possible, and she brings a unique perspective to her work, having been in the position of family member, care giver and roles in between throughout her life. When away from work, she enjoys spending time with family, reading, traveling, trying new foods and going on walks and adventures. Nicole is a native of Littleton and has a husband and a blended family of eight children, as well as two grandchildren.
