arbor terrace glenview senior living community

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 Glenview.

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 like Sheila Ryan who shared online, “I love my Mom and the best way I can show that love is for her to live in the Evergreen Community at Arbor Terrace. From the lovely environment to the daily activities to the delicious food to the caring staff I know she is in the right place for her and the right place for me.”


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.

Residents like Frank Amato are thankful to be able to enjoy a retirement they deserve. He shared this about Arbor Terrace Glenview, “Good, safe place and are taken care of at this time in your life when you can not do this on your own.”

Ida Margaret Patchett, also a resident of Arbor Terrace Glenview, said it simply, “Arbor takes good care of me!”


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.

Joanne Spitz provided this heartwarming review, “We moved our parents into Arbor in June; dad passed away in August. They treated them with great respect, kindness and gave us a lot of support. With our mom there by herself, we feel very confident that she is getting great care, has so many fun activities to choose from, a very clean and pretty environment, with a beautiful outdoor area. Good choice of food, feels like home, and our mom is thriving so much more than when she was at home. Thank you Arbor!”


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.

Senior living communities help seniors maintain and develop new relationships through common interests and a planned activities calendar. We love when we receive comments like this one from Brittany Donnelly, “Arbor Terrace Glenview truly is a standout community. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but it is filled with some of the most welcoming, caring individuals you will meet. The setup of the facility allows for privacy while also encouraging community engagement through their restaurant-style dining, group classes, outings and variety of common spaces to meet and mingle with other residents. The facility houses everything your loved one will need to age comfortably in place. Highly recommend!”

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