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 Naperville.
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. Mary Krueger shared this heartwarming message, “Finding a place for your loved one to be cared for is daunting, for you want nothing but the best for your loved one. From the moment I walked into the doors, I knew this was the perfect place for my stepmom. Jocelyn was wonderful from our first meeting and our tour along with Alex who also continues to always be there. All of this made me realize without a doubt I was making the right decision. That feeling of calm, knowing she is safe, has never wavered and I highly recommend Arbor Terrace Naperville to care for your loved ones.”
Feels Like Home
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 Eric Vandenbroucke’s are reassuring to families. He shared, “Arbor Terrace staff is very friendly and makes mom feel at home. Over time, she has been a resident they have gotten to know as well as family.”
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. Neil Schori shared his loved one's experience, "Life brings lots of challenges and hard times. When your loved one needs senior care, I recommend considering Arbor Terrace Naperville. They do a good job of taking a lot of the burden off of families so that they can be just that...family."
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.
Carol Hilton, a family member, shared this review, “My mom has been at Arbor Terrace since February 2021. Mom can be a bit challenging at times but all the staff are great with her. Tressa goes above and beyond, using all the ingenuity that she has to get my mom out of her room and to various activities. There are days I think mom is out of her room more than she is in it, which is a good thing! Thank you, Arbor Terrace and Tressa, for all you do for the residents, including my mom.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
