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 Roseland.
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. Leanne Clarke shared this heartwarming message, “I would highly recommend Arbor Terrace if you want your family member to truly feel at home, in a safe, comfortable and uplifting environment.”

The way we look at senior living has evolved and seniors are staying active now more than ever. In addition to the modern and updated decor, senior living communities offer many amenities like housekeeping, laundry services, and transportation. Having a bit of extra help from the staff comes in handy. Diane Lang shared her experience, “Arbor Terrace is a beautiful community. I have been to the community numerous times and each time I’m there I feel a warm feeling. The staff feels like family, the apartments are roomy and beautiful. The entertainment room is great and they always have a full list of activities. It’s a great place to live.”
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.

Knowing that my parents are getting the care they need by the most lovely staff, has made all the difference in the world. My parents are happy attending all the activities and I love knowing that they are busy. The facility couldn’t be more beautiful, as well. I would recommend Arbor Terrace to anyone looking for wonderful care and a happy environment for their parents.”
