    Say goodbye to boredom with Engaged Living

    We're doing away with the stereotypical notions of retirement living. At Arbor Terrace, we strive for more than just bingo and a bouncing ball. We go above and beyond to offer the best quality of life for each resident.

    Our Engaged Living calendars give you the opportunity to be exactly as busy as you want to be with activities and events in these areas:

    Productive
    Opportunities that provide a sense of value and meaning.

    Leisure
    Moments that create a sense of fun and fellowship.

    Self-Care
    Programs that help take care of our body and minds.

    Rest
    Events that encourage us to relax, unwind and rejuvenate.

    Returning the joy to food

    Perhaps our favorite way of enriching your daily experience is through delicious cuisine. With restaurant-style service, our classically-trained chefs create menus that delight even the most discerning eaters. Best of all, our mouth-watering meals are carefully designed to promote wellness, not just fullness.

    Although your apartment includes a fully-equipped kitchen, the excellent dining at Arbor Terrace just may convince you to leave the cooking to us.

    Award-winning care at Arbor Terrace

    Life at Arbor Terrace is all about the joys of living free from tedious chores alongside the fun of a robust and active social calendar. Think of it as simply more time to enjoy life. Here, each new day is met with the thrill of endless possibilities.

    For more than 30 years, we've specialized in developing state-of-the-art programs to meet the unique needs of every resident through providing options to experience your day on your terms - not ours. We offer a schedule based on your preferences, with exciting and engaging activities planned around making meaningful moments. Be inspired by our beautifully landscaped grounds or catch up with friends and family in our comfortable resort-style lobbies. Mingle and get involved in regular social engagements and outings.

    Look forward to in-house dining that's nothing short of amazing. Or just relax, knowing that our expert staff is at your service. Living at Arbor Terrace allows you to spend your time your way. You deserve it; this is the time of your life to do exactly what you like.

    Experience Matters

    Arbor Terrace is managed by The Arbor Company, an experienced operator of senior living communities for more than 30 years. In that time, we've learned how to provide the just-right balance of service and activity in excellently-maintained environments. And with a portfolio of about 30 senior living communities, we're large enough to bring a higher level of service and support to our communities while not being so large that we lose sight of meeting the needs of those we serve. All of this is wrapped up in what we call The Arbor Service Way - our commitment to providing the best service possible.

    Making Deep Connections Everyday

    We're here to make deep connections with you - to earn the right to be part of the next chapter in your life. Through these connections, we fulfill our promise to find and provide the perfect experience. We start by asking the right questions and taking the time to listen. It's all because we believe your next chapter deserves a story worth telling.

    What's our story? We're a dedicated group of people passionate about setting the absolute highest standard for senior living. The Arbor Terrace family is different because we're deeply connected to every resident's story. Let us show you why we deserve the privilege of being part of yours.

    The Neighborhood

    Arbor Terrace Teaneck is situated among a beautiful wooded setting that’s the perfect place to relax. Set back from Frank W. Burr Boulevard, the community is centrally located for convenient shopping and dining. Whether you’re running an errand, popping out for a quick bite or even headed downtown for a show, Arbor Terrace is the perfect spot for you.

    Independent Living

    "Arbor Terrace staff are always approachable and friendly. They always take the time to help out in whatever way they can. Each time I enter the community I am so grateful to have such a caring place for mom to live."

    - Family Member

    My mother has been a resident for over three years, but it wasn't until your arrival that she truly began enjoying her experiences and felt that there was someone in management who took the time to REALLY listen and care for her wants and needs.

    - Larry (Family Member)

    Thank you again for your support and assistance with both parents. We have a huge burden off our shoulders and cannot thank you enough.

    - Family Member

    "During [Liz's] four year tenure you have been and continue to be warm, caring, congenial and always available. Overall the staff under your personal direction has made our life comfortable, homey, secure and pleasurable."

    - Herb (Resident)

    Resident Feedback

    Dear Liz,


    I want you to know that in my opinion you are the best executive director we have had since [I moved in].

    The changes you have made here are all positive and in my opinion
    have enhanced our home. I've actually seen you painting, hanging curtains and doing many other chores that many others who are in your position would consider beneath their position.

    Besides always being pleasant with a smile on your face, you are
    always available to the residents and ready to help them with any problems they may have. You are our director, but also a friend to many of us.

    Most of us have great hopes for the new management. We are very pleased that they are not planning to change the staff, all of whom I find pleasant and hard working. I am especially happy that you will continue to
    be our executive director.

    - Sylvia
