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 Highland Park.


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. Amy Mendelson shared this heartwarming message, “Arbor Terrace Highland Park is a great place for mom. She now has nice friends right down the hall and socializes much more than when she was at home alone. The staff is super friendly and the place is very clean. She is happy there and we sleep better at night knowing she is safe. Jeff Altschul did a good job making mom feel welcome!”


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.

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Amy Montalbano’s are reassuring to families considering the move. She shared, “I recently toured Arbor Terrace and I was impressed by its warm and homey feel! The staff were all so welcoming and the residents very friendly. I enjoyed seeing how the residents were taking advantage of the activities offered that day or just chatting in a group by the fireplace. This is definitely a place I could see my loved one!”

Janet Frigo shared, "My parents were the first residents to move into Arbor Terrace Highland Park, and they remained happy with their decision. They felt it was important to be in the community where they raised their family and live in for six decades. They could see Sunset Park from their window. The staff at Arbor demonstrates a combination of warmth and professionalism. The nursing staff show individual concern for each resident. If you want your family member to move to assisted living in the Highland Park area, a visit to Arbor Terrace will be worthwhile."


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. Mark Argall shared his thoughts about his parent’s experience, “This is one of the nicest, newest assisted living facilities around. More like staying at a luxury hotel. My parents love the staff! Jeff the Sales Director is just such a great guy. Really cares about the residents. Can't recommend them any more highly.”


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.

Positive reviews like this one from Nicole Dukatt warm our hearts. She said, “I am beyond impressed with Arbor Terrace Highland Park. The energy is upbeat. The staff is professional, approachable, and helpful. The residents are happy and friendly as well. They offer many activities for residents to have fun and be social. The food is high-end.”

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