    On behalf of my family and me, thank you for your patience, kindness and flexibility that you have provided to my mom.  We are thrilled by the positive impact this new living arrangement has had.  Mom is the happiest she has been in many years!

    - Diane, daughter of Arbor Terrace of Middletown resident

    Everyone was extremely helpful (during our move) and they still are. We are extremely satisfied with the care at Arbor Terrace.

    - Family Member

    Thank you again for your support and assistance with both parents. We have a huge burden off our shoulders and cannot thank you enough.

    - Family Member

    Family Stories

    "Absolutely beautiful!"

    My mother hasn’t moved in yet. She is going for respite stay next week, and then she should move in after that. Arbor Terrace of Middletown was the nicest place we have seen. Megan, the person who gave us the tour, was absolutely wonderful. The renovations they have done on the facility itself has made it look like a hotel out of a magazine. Every room is newly renovated and absolutely beautiful. Their services were wonderful, and the prices compared to other places that have never been renovated in 40 years are about $2,000 a month cheaper. The rooms were beautiful whether it was a studio or a one-bedroom. They were newly renovated with granite, stainless steel, walk-in showers, beautiful carpeting, and freshly painted.

    I have not eaten there, but my mother did, and she has absolutely no complaints about the food. Every day, there are different activities in the morning, then time for lunch, and activities in the afternoon. They have movies at night, barbecues on weekends, and they have live entertainment coming in during these barbecues. It is just a wonderful facility.

    Everybody there had been very friendly. They have been very welcoming to my mother — she spent two days there. They have a lot of services that just fit into my mother’s lifestyle — things that she has already done — so it was a perfect fit for her.
