Resident

We moved our mother into the Evergreen (memory care) neighborhood at Arbor Terrace from another local community. She is a new person, much happier, and all of our stress levels have dropped dramatically.

Resident

My mother is Marilyn Bartholomew and has been at Arbor Terrace Citrus Park in Tampa since the first week it opened. She has been in the Bridges care. I visit mom on a daily basis and have a good idea as to how she is being cared for.

Family Member

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

I used to sit home and skip meals rather than eat alone. Now I enjoy the company of friends and I’m eating three meals a day. I have a regimented exercise program that includes a nice morning walk on the grounds.

Resident

Thank you so much for being the answer to our prayers and doing such an excellent job helping us keep our family safe. That is really what you do. It is much more than selling a place to live. You are giving families hope and peace of mind. God bless you.
