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 Hamilton Mill.
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. Kenneth Poe shared this heartwarming message, “My Mother has been very pleased with the communities, services, and management of Arbor Terrace Hamilton Mill. They have done an exceptional job managing the community and taking care of the residents throughout the COVID pandemic. Knowing that she enjoys living there and that she is safe provides me great comfort.”

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Cecilia Tremblay’s are reassuring to families. She shared, “My mom refers to Arbor Terrace Hamilton Mill as home which is a tremendous comfort to me. Overall the staff is very friendly, warm, caring, and attentive.

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. Having a bit of extra help from the staff comes in handy. Frank Gaston shared his loved one’s experience, “My wife is in memory care. She is busy doing things all day. She gets plenty of attention from staff. Plenty of choices of food. And it tastes good. And looks appetizing. Management is always available to discuss things. And nursing management is always friendly and available.”
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.
Phyllis Ferguson, a resident at Hamilton Mill, shared this review, “I am 90 yrs old and I just love it here! Lots of activities if wanted and very comfortable.”
Another resident, Sally Aversano, also shared, “We feel safe here and value this as our home. We enjoy the staff, the variety of activities, many of which we participate in, and the friendly caring of residents for one another.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
