Visiting with family over the holiday season is typically a good time to check on the health and safety of an elderly loved one. Each year, The Arbor Company circulates a checklist to help families access a senior parent in terms of health, safety, socialization, and memory to determine if and when it is time to seek additional care. This year in the face of the pandemic, families will have to amend this process as many factors have changed.
At The Arbor Company, we salute the veterans who serve our country on Veteran's Day, and everyday. We are honored to have many of these heroes among our Arbor family, as residents in our Arbor communities around the country. In honor of Veteran's Day, our next
Senior Living LIVE! webinar will focus on how veterans and their families can use their special benefits to help pay for senior living.
Sometimes when choosing investments, we can become misguided by focusing on how much we can make without taking into account the taxes on these investments. By choosing tax-free investments, investors can put more money towards their bottom line. In our upcoming

Our host, Melissa Lee, sat down with John to find out what participants can expect from the full webinar, and he shares some advice on how to protect your investment portfolio. Click below to watch the recording, and make sure to visit

We all forget things sometimes. But as we get older, it gets harder to distinguish between common forgetfulness that comes with aging, and actual dementia.
Our Arbor dementia expert, Susan Robbins, sits down with Melissa Lee to discuss the topic of the upcoming webinar Senior Living LIVE: Dementia or Normal Aging? As a preview for the full webinar, scheduled for September 29, Susan compares dementia and forgetfulness, and gives some signs to look for and when to see medical help.
For more information, watch the recording below. And make sure to sign up for the full webinar later this month for more helpful information about dementia.
One positive outcome from sheltering in place is that the extra time together caused many families to strengthen their bond as a unit. For residents living in senior living communities, that togetherness includes other residents and staff. With many families unable to visit safely as often as before, staff found creative ways to celebrate milestones, and keep residents connected to special moments with their families. In this episode of Senior Living LIVE, host Melissa Lee talks with Mallorie Richardson about purposeful living over the last six months in senior living. Watch the recording for more about how staff stepped up to create deep connections and meaningful moments for residents in Arbor communities.
