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 Middletown.
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. One family member wrote online, “Arbor Terrace has been my mom’s home now for about four years. The staff is friendly and attentive. Most importantly, she feels safe.”
Feels Like Home

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Julia Luciano’s are heartwarming, “My mother's experience at Arbor Terrace has been excellent. She is 99 years old, and the care and kindness shown to her by all who work there is beyond compare. I am so happy that we chose to have my mother live at Arbor Terrace. She can live out her remaining time on earth in a wonderful environment, with caring, loving, and wonderful people.”
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.
Arbor Terrace Middletown resident Rosemary Conway exclaimed, “I am quite happy here. The staff is very nice and always ready to help. The residents get along and seem happy here. The food is good. Entertainment is good also. I feel quite at home here.”
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.
One resident gushed, “You will not be disappointed. I did not know when my wife suggested this place that it would be this wonderful. People interested in coming to a place like this will feel the same way I do. This is a great place to live.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
