A Day in the Life of an Arbor Terrace Resident

For three decades, The Arbor Company has served seniors of every age, and at every stage of life. We partner with retirees to help them live out retirements of adventure and joy. And when seniors need an extra hand, we’re there for that too. For those who are struggling with advanced dementia or terminal illness, we ensure that every moment counts. Potential residents often ask us what a day in the life of an Arbor Terrace resident looks like. Here’s what you can expect if you make us part of your extended family.

Arbor Terrace: Where Every Day Is Unique and Every Person Counts

Moving to senior living is similar to any other major change in life. Just as you did on your wedding day or first day of college, you may feel a mix of apprehension and excitement. The truth is that there’s no such thing as a typical day at Arbor Terrace, because there’s no such thing as a typical resident. You don’t have to follow a fixed schedule, or hew to our idea of what a good retirement looks like. At Arbor, you shape your own destiny.

Our role is to help you sculpt the retirement that looks right to you. So whether you want to relax in a quiet, comfortable home or spend every day doing something new, Arbor offers a path to your goals.

Your Home: The Launchpad for Great Days

Every day at Arbor begins in your comfortable, meticulously designed home. We offer a floor plan for every need and budget. No matter which size or style of home you choose, you’ll begin and end each day in an apartment designed for your unique needs. You’ll get a spacious bathtub, grab rails to keep you safe, and plenty of storage space. Forget about the stress of home maintenance or cleaning. We take care of all of that for you.

You'll also gain the comfort of knowing you’re never truly alone. If you feel lonely, walk down to the dining hall or any of our many beautiful gathering areas. If you need help, we’re always here. You never again have to worry about your safety.

A Jam-Packed Schedule

At Arbor, you also never again have to worry about having too much to do to enjoy your retirement. Don’t worry about meals, cleaning, or home maintenance. Instead, turn your attention to the activities that truly give life meaning. You might start your day with yoga or chair aerobics, then meet a friend in the dining room for a scrumptious breakfast. Stroll around the grounds watching birds, then head inside for the latest and greatest Arbor class.

Meet your family in our elegant dining room for lunch, then doze off while enjoying the view from your home window. At dinner, you might enjoy live music or a birthday celebration, or head out for a community excursion to one of many local attractions.

The Right Senior Living Community Matters

At Arbor, we understand that you’ve spent much of your life looking forward to retirement. So when physical challenges or dementia threaten to compromise your enjoyment, it’s normal to feel frustrated, scared, or even angry. The right senior living community is more than just an alternative to the retirement you planned. It’s a luxury option that can help you live out your dreams while making new friends and mastering new skills. We offer a continuum of care, meeting you wherever you are.

Our assisted living community can help you remain independent for longer with gentle, compassionate help. For help finding the right community, and for more tips on making the most of retirement, download our free guide, “Finding a Safe & Comfortable Senior Living Community.”
