Welcome to Pinewood East, one of Anne Arundel County’s modern, affordable senior communities. Pinewood East, consisting of 90 apartments, is owned and managed by the Housing Commission of Anne Arundel County. The community consists of one all inclusive midrise building with lobbies on each floor, elevator access and a modern community room. It offers one bedroom, junior one bedroom, two bedroom and studio apartments.
At Pinewood East, active senior adults enjoy the comforts and benefits of independent living. However, should the need arise and assistance is needed, Pinewood East is one of the few communities in Anne Arundel County that offers the Congregate Housing Services Program at a very reasonable additional cost.
The Pinewood Park nestled in the trees in the center of the village, is equipped with tables, grills and a swing. The park is a great place to picnic or justrelax with friends.
Activities and Programs
Pinewood East residents are invited to participate in the programs and activities offered in the community. Activities include bingo, parties, bus trips, dances, bible study, arts and crafts such as ceramics, and a special exercise class for residents who have special needs. Wheelchair-bound residents are encouraged to attend.
The Housing Commission is committed to providing residents with services needed to enhance the quality of life. That is why there is an on-site social worker to assist residents with coordinating needed services and referring residents to the appropriate social service agencies when necessary.
The Resident Council represents the rights and needs of the Pinewood residents. The Council works directly with Housing Commission staff in developing policies. We encourage you to participate in your Resident Council. The Council meets once per month in the Multi-Purpose Room.
An on-site caseworker is available on weekdays. Also, a doctor is available on certain days to assist you with your needs.
