The decision to move into a senior living community is not always an easy one to make. Sometimes the decision has to be made on behalf of your loved one for their own safety. However, what may begin with hesitation can end up being one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.

It is understandable why your loved one may resist leaving the home they knew to live in an environment that is unfamiliar. However, we know that there are many pros to living in a senior living community, from safety to a sense of community to new friendships.

Through reviews from our residents and their loved ones, learn more about life at Arbor Terrace at Crabapple.


Sometimes it is no longer safe for your loved one to live alone at home. Maybe the upkeep is too much or the home isn’t “aging-ready.” Maybe you’ve noticed signs of decline like missed medications and scorched pans. When this happens, a move into a senior living community is important for their safety and well-being. 

Knowing your loved one is safe and cared for is a tremendous relief for many family members. David Hunt shared this message, “The staff and care at Arbor Terrace at Crabapple are wonderful! If you are considering this community for your loved one I would highly recommend it. My mother has been in residence for over a year and I have had zero issues with care, safety, communication and engagement.”


Senior living communities help build a sense of community. Our trained staff keeps residents engaged and maintains deep connections through shared interests and stories. Our community is modern and updated with cozy corners for reading, gardens, and dining rooms where residents eat together. Resident Joel Monger praised, “Both staff and residents are friendly and welcoming. I've made great friendships that make me feel fulfilled and happy.”


When thinking of a senior living community, some may remember visiting their grandparents in a nursing home. From pools and game rooms to libraries and cocktail lounges, this is not your great-grandma’s senior living.

The way we look at senior living has evolved and seniors are staying active now more than ever. In addition to modern and updated decor, senior living communities offer many amenities like housekeeping, laundry services, and transportation. 

Not having to worry about chores allows residents to have the type of retirement they deserve. A resident shared online, “I'm 94 years old and was independently living in my own home until I had a fall. Moving to Arbor Terrace at Crabapple allowed me to maintain my independence by providing transportation, activities and socialization, and all my meals prepared for me.”


Seniors can be affected the most when it comes to isolation, especially while dealing with an ongoing pandemic. Due to increased isolation, seniors are reevaluating their living arrangements.

As your loved one ages, engagement is imperative for their well-being. Arbor Terrace at Crabapple offers many activities and opportunities for residents to engage and learn new skills. Bob Pickering shared this heartwarming message, “Mom's quality of life has drastically improved since moving to Arbor. She enjoys her friends, staff, and her activities, and we have great peace of mind with her living there. Would heartily recommend Arbor at Crabapple to others.”

There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
