About Us

Our Way of Life

The newest senior living community in Parker, CO, 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 residents of our locally owned and operated community. 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.

Debbie

Debbie Rumer

Sales Counselor
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.

Wayne Lindsey

Environmental Services Director
Wayne is a native of Colorado! One of the few left! He worked his way through Art School employed at Littleton Public Schools in the Maintenance Department. His specialty was boiler systems, plumbing and pneumatic controls. When he finished college he tried his hand at his degree – Advertising Design! Wayne owned his own Graphic Design Studio, worked as a Senior Art Director, Creative Director and eventually ended his Design career as a Marketing Director. But, he was always still fixing stuff. At his last Marketing job he took on the role of Maintenance and Building Management in addition to his role as Marketing Director. It was from here that Wayne decided to go back into the Maintenance and Facility Management field. Wayne has 6 years of experience in Senior Living and takes pride in making sure his residents feel comfortable and at home as quickly as possible. In his free time you’ll find Wayne camping, fishing or tinkering with his truck. Avid Bronco fans, Wayne and his wife Heather reserve Sunday for the game, good food and time with our three girls.

Linda Myers

Human Resources Specialist
Linda has been Colorado resident for over 20 years. Her most challenging job has been “MOM” to two beautiful kids (who are now in college) and a wife to a wonderful man. Working in the Assisted Living communities is somewhat new to her. She began at Pine Grove Crossing as a Lead Concierge, and was one of the first employees at the community when it opened. This is where she grew to LOVE the residents and their families, always saying that she had the perfect job. Linda’s love for the residents expanded and includes all of the employees, as she was promoted to Pine Grove’s Human Resources Specialist position. She now can be the “Mom” to both the Residents and the Employees. - life is good!
