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.

Tyler-N-1

Tyler Nitta

Executive Director
Tyler Nitta’s calling to serve seniors was sparked at a very young age, with two great-grandparents facing Alzheimer’s disease. He learned firsthand the beauty of patience, how to be with someone in the moment, and how to cherish the small victories. Tyler calls himself an “old soul”, and after 14+ years in senior living, is now dedicated to meeting and exceeding the expectations of residents, their families, and his associates at Pine Grove Crossing by creating a safe, enriching and fun place to live and work. While memory care is where his heart lies, Tyler’s experience also includes life enrichment, sales, and operations. He has served as executive director of an Assisted Living and Memory Care community, as well as a committee member of the Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter and board member of Bessie’s Hope, a not-for-profit that brings intergenerational programs in nursing homes and assisted living communities. Tyler is a graduate of the University of Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. A sports junkie, he enjoys family adventures with his wife and two children and rooting on his Denver Nuggets. On his list for a perfect getaway? Tropical weather and good food.

Debbie enjoyed a successful career in the insurance industry for over 30 years. Life happened and Debbie’s mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. And then the journey began. Downsizing, selling the family home, exploring assisted living communities and finally helping her mother settle in for this new phase of life. This experience changed not only her mother’s life but also the direction of Debbie’s career. Debbie decided she wanted to be a part of helping others through this time of transition in their senior years. Debbie grew up in the south but now calls Colorado her home. She enjoys life with her husband, 2 boys and 6 grandchildren which includes a twin boy and girl. Just ask her and she will be most happy to share their photos.

Alain

Alain Lumu Luabo

Director of Memory Care
Alain’s love of elders comes from his roots, and from his grandmother who is “90-years young.” He is a native of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where the culture calls upon young people to care for their elders because “they have all the knowledge and wisdom that we need.” For Alain, that has meant working in senior living, including positions in memory care as Caregiver, Med Technician, Memory Care Coordinator, and Memory Care Director of Programming (where his community was nominated two years in a row for one of the best Memory Care communities in Denver). He graduated from medical school in DRC and moved to the US in 2005. Communication is the core value that speaks most to Alain; he feels it is a way to express ourselves and hear others, see and treat one another with compassion, and work together to achieve responsibilities. When he’s not busy serving seniors at Pine Grove Crossing, Alain enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, traveling, listening to news of the world, sports and watching movies. Dream vacation? Extended time on a Hawaiian beach where he can “only hear the sound of the water.”
Sabrina

Sabrina Wieman

Business Office Director
Making a difference in an elder’s life, even if it’s just bringing a smile to their face with a friendly hello, is an everyday goal for Sabrina. Losing both her aunt and grandmother to dementia were life lessons in how true compassion relies on commitment and communication, two assets that she brings to work with her every day in her role as Business Office Director. With 27 years of experience in office management and bookkeeping, she loves the many hats she wears at Solera as she oversees accounting, human resources, and administrative duties. Sabrina’s favorite pastimes are just as diverse. Traveling, spending time with her husband, daughters and grandchildren, playing with her dogs, watching history programs and dining on Mexican or Italian food. Her dream vacation would be an extended stay in England and Scotland. For now, she’ll settle for watching The True Royalty Channel…and all four Ghostbusters movies.
