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 Senior Living.
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 Gary Filmore, who shared this, “I really thank God for those who led us to Arbor Terrace. The staff and service were essential in helping my mom transition and keeping her alive. Kudos to Sylvia at the front desk, Denise in Engagement and Rita Chapman in her leadership and communications with families.”

Pia Rogers shared this heartwarming review, “Best family-oriented environment! Clean, warm, and genuine. I truly appreciate Arbor Terrace Senior Living because I know my loved one is being well cared for by the entire staff.”
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.
Jennifer Davis recently raved about her mother’s experience, “Recently, Arbor Terrace hosted a birthday celebration for our mother that was enjoyed by everyone, especially our mother. Denise, the event manager, her staff and Chef Xavier did a phenomenal job of arranging everything and ensuring that Mom was treated like a queen. All of the guests at the party were amazed at how they were treated and the elegance of the facility. Arbor Terrace has been a blessing to our family for many years! Our mother is there now because of the wonderful previous experience we had when our father was a resident there. Even though there have been changes in personnel, our mother is experiencing the same caring, professional staff and welcoming environment.”
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 Linda Anderson, “Arbor Terrace is a very clean and well kept facility. The staff is professional with the residents and their families. They provide weekly activities to keep the residents entertained, including physical exercise. They provide scenic trips, movie nights and a variety of entertainment. The staff is patient with the residents and knowledgeable in their particular areas. I would recommend Arbor Terrace to my friends.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
