Arbor Senior Living

Our Senior Living program is designed to provide care at the level you need, from minimal assistance to comprehensive care. It’s the perfect choice for most seniors looking for just the right amount of care and assistance to supplement—not completely change—the lifestyle you love.

 

bridges

Bridges

For seniors with early-stage dementia and memory loss, Bridges is a unique place that opens pathways to hope at a time when many see doors closing and locking. A dedicated neighborhood at Arbor Terrace, Bridges offers the perfect amount of support and the right types of activities in a place where residents are surrounded with others in similar stages of memory loss. This results in less isolation and more comfort—both for families and their loved ones.

    We are specialists in the field of memory loss

    At Arbor, our approach to Memory Care is personal. For the last 30 years, we’ve specialized in developing state-of-the-art programs to meet the unique needs of every resident while creating family-inclusive plans for each stage of aging.

    We are experts in the field of memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other types of dementia. In fact, our rigorously trained staff engages in all levels of dementia. We understand the physiological changes that occur in the brain, so we equip our entire staff with the skills to interact positively with people experiencing memory loss. The results are individualized programs proven to improve quality of life. We work tirelessly to create joy-filled routines based on your preferences with each day planned around making meaningful moments.

    Unique to Arbor, our expert teams work with both residents and families to understand and proactively address cognitive decline. We believe education is vital, both for our staff and your family members. So our signature family support groups help loved ones personally understand the effects of memory loss. At Arbor, you are never alone.

    And at Arbor Terrace, we ensure everyone has a place at the table. Our award-winning Dining with Dignity® program is a nationally recognized food preparation method that allows our Memory Care residents to continue enjoying meaningful dining experiences regardless of physical or cognitive ability. For many, Dining with Dignity provides satisfaction much deeper than the love and warmth of a handcrafted meal.

    Say goodbye to boredom with Engaged Living

    We’re doing away with the stereotypical notions of retirement living. At Arbor Terrace, we strive for more than just bingo and a bouncing ball. We go above and beyond to offer the best quality of life for each resident.

With restaurant-style service, our expert chefs create menus that delight even the most discerning eaters. Best of all, our mouth-watering meals are carefully designed to promote wellness, not just fullness.

    Award-winning care at Arbor Terrace

    Our emphasis on hiring and training the best people has led to a proven track record of success. In short, that means that our residents love our staff and our staff love Arbor.

    It’s no wonder that those who work in the senior living industry love working at Arbor. We treat them as family and give them the tools and training they need to be the best they can be at their jobs. Our cognitive care training is among the best in the business and doesn’t stop with just one class. Every staff member in the community goes through an extensive, multilevel training program so that they truly understand all aspects of working with seniors.

    As someone once put it, “once you work at Arbor you can tear your resume up because you’ve found the only place you will ever want to work!”

    Specialists with real experience

    We’re here to make deep connections with you — to earn the right to be part of the next chapter in your life. Through these connections, we fulfill our promise to find and provide the perfect experience. We start by asking the right questions and taking the time to listen. It’s all because we believe your next chapter deserves a story worth telling.

    What’s our story? We’re a dedicated group of people passionate about setting the absolute highest standard for senior living. The Arbor Terrace family is different because we’re deeply connected to every resident’s story. Let us show you why we deserve the privilege of being part of yours.

    Making experience count to give you the best

    Arbor Terrace is managed by The Arbor Company, an experienced operator of senior living communities for more than 30 years. In that time, we’ve learned how to provide the just-right balance of service and activity in excellently-maintained environments. And with a portfolio of about 30 senior living communities, we’re large enough to bring a higher level of service and support to our communities while not being so large that we lose sight of meeting the needs of those we serve. All of this is wrapped up in what we call The Arbor Service Way—our commitment to providing the best service possible.

    Family Stories

    “I want to express my appreciation for all you and your staff have done for my parents. I have been so very impressed with the dedication and caring of the entire staff. I had looked at other facilities and there are none that compare. As I had told you before, my parents really came to think of it as “home” and the staff as family. In my opinion that is the highest praise!”
