Relationships Matter Here

At Arbor Terrace, relationships are the foundation of our community. We delight in fostering meaningful relationships — we call them deep connections — with residents and family members, and finding ways to create connections between the seniors who live here. As we learn more about our residents, we can provide even better assistance and programs to meet their ever-evolving needs.

Life Is Better Here

Arbor Terrace is managed by The Arbor Company. For more than three decades, The Arbor Company has been dedicated to providing the lifestyle and amenities that keep seniors feeling their very best.

  • Art Art and Education Stimulate your mind by learning another language, painting a portrait, or exploring a new craft or skill.
  • people Deep Connections Feel connected to a lively community. We ask the right questions and take the time to listen. It’s why residents accomplish amazing things here — things they never thought possible on their own.
  • PurposefulLivng Health and Wellness Our exercise programs are designed especially for seniors to improve mobility, maintain fitness, and even challenge the brain — all in a fun format.
  • Recreation Purposeful Living At Arbor Terrace, residents are meaningfully engaged throughout the day. An important part of that includes opportunities to volunteer and give back to others while remaining actively involved in the community.
  • Activities Recreation and Leisure We go out of our way to fulfill each resident’s wish list. From live music to barbecues to karaoke nights, if you can dream it, chances are that we’ll try it. And we love helping with family get-togethers.
  • Spiritual Spiritual Journey For many, the health of one’s soul is as meaningful as the health of one’s body. And so we offer ample opportunities for structured religious activities and individual reflection.

Joe Staigerwald

Maintenance Director

I have been working in the healthcare field for more than 25 years and maintenance/remodeling for more than 36 years. I really enjoy working in senior living. It is gratifying to become a part of the resident’s lives.

They impressed me from the word go and six months later I was still impressed with them, and to this day I am still impressed. There isn’t a perfect place, but just looking at the day to day operation, how the attitudes are and the friendliness of the people and their willingness to keep me informed, they have a done a great job.
