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 Waugh Chapel.


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. Karen Bailey shared this heartwarming message, “I highly recommend Arbor Terrace. It is a safe, friendly, caring, and enriching environment for adults who need extra care and support. It is most impressive the way that the staff individualizes support according to each resident’s needs.”

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 Shelli Lambert’s are reassuring to families. She shared, “It fills my heart, and relieves my mind and stress to know that my mom is in an environment that does its best to provide her a safe, comfortable, and healthy home away from home.”


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 the 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. Peggy Mentges shared her loved one’s experience, “It was a big decision for my mom to move here, but she has never looked back. She loves living here. The staff is more than a staff, they are her family. She has made so many friends and it has changed her life. My dad has dementia but I have to say he seems content and loved, too. I cannot thank Arbor Terrace enough for the outstanding care and love that they all have given to my parents and me and my 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.

Linda Thomas, a family member commented, “I think Arbor Terrace Waugh Chapel is among the top tier of assisted living communities. The care is top-notch. The activity crew finds a nice variety. Management is efficient and follows protocol to keep everyone safe.” 

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