    Resident Relations Director: Cathy Condon

    I joined Arbor Terrace in March of 2016 after having experienced placing my mother in and out of nursing facilities for 3 years. Trying to ensure that my mother had the best of care possible and a place where I was comfortable leaving her wasn't easy and I'm not sure I ever found it. Seeing the need for caregivers and staff who were compassionate and understood each individuals needs, I hoped to one day be given the opportunity to create or be a part of that kind of environment. Upon finding Arbor Terrace I knew I had found not only the place I would have chosen for my mom but a place for me to Pay-it-forward.

    “Your employees are your very best asset! We are so pleased with everything about Arbor Terrace!”

    - Family Member

    "Is there a more difficult decision for anyone to have to make than the one of where to move your parent when they need a care facility?  I think not. For my brother and me it was very emotional and scary to take our Mom out of her home of almost 60 years. The obvious things you look for of course are quality of care, safety, and meeting medical needs. The other more subtle things that mattered to us were a beautiful, clean, no smell home that all family and guests would be comfortable visiting and want to stay to be with her. Arbor Terrace has exceeded every hope and requirement that we had.   The staff is so caring and loving that it feels like we are all friends, even extended family with the same goal of making our Mom happy and comfortable.

    I feel very lucky to have found this beautiful facility with this caring staff to make this time in our Moms journey better than we had dared hope for."

    - Laurie R.

    "A year ago, my husband became someone we didn’t recognize. Dementia made its presence known and fear, confusion and hopelessness became part of our families’ life. Arbor Terrace staff reached out to us with open arms, loving support and much-needed information. Now my husband is surrounded by people he knows and trusts, lives in a safe environment and understands the reality of dementia. We are so grateful for your loving support."

    - Karen

    "My two sisters and I lovingly refer to our mother as the “Queen Mother”!  She was a tremendous wife and mother and we always say she deserves the “Royal Treatment”!!!  Arbor Terrace has proven to be a place that showers their residents with exactly that.  It is such a comfort knowing that our sweet mother is lovingly and compassionately cared for.  When I interviewed Arbor Terrace as a place for her care they expressed their confidence that we would see improvement in her and I was a bit skeptical, yet, we have seen improvements in her overall cognitive skills and are greatly appreciative."

    Family Stories

    "Thank you, staff of Arbor Terrace, for your truly exceptional dedication to the wellbeing of my mom"

    "Being ex-military and an only child, it was difficult letting go after years of being mom’s caregiver. But I knew what mom needed most was for me to step aside and let your capable and professional staff help mom get settled into her new home. So I took a deep breath, looked Linda [our Director of Resident Care] straight in the eyes, and said, “I stand relieved.” I am now convinced that decision was as right as it was difficult to make. Mom has returned to a level of engagement I haven’t seen in years, and I have the peace of mind knowing my mom is happy, and in good hands. Thank you, staff of Arbor Terrace, for your truly exceptional dedication to the wellbeing of my mom (and me!)."
