Through reviews from our residents and their loved ones, learn more about life at Arbor Terrace Teaneck.
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. Marc Schonfeld shared this heartwarming message, “Arbor Terrace Teaneck is extremely well managed and provides a friendly and safe environment for all residents. The staff are considerate and attentive and consistently provide outstanding care and concern for all residents. The common areas are wonderfully maintained, which lends itself to a healthy overall environment. The dining is plentiful and offers a wide variety of tasty options.”

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like this one from Eileen Kennedy are reassuring to families. She shared, “Arbor Terrace has been my home for more than eleven years and this community, which is part of the Teaneck community, is a great place to live.”
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 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. Caryn Klingsberg shared her loved one’s experience, “Bringing my mother to live at Arbor Terrace was the best decision we have ever made. She has a beautiful apartment, wonderful friends, and a very active life. She loves the staff at Arbor and the way they have embraced her and her dog, Sady.”
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.
Resident, Judy Assisi commented, “I have lived here for five months. The residents and staff have been very welcoming and friendly to me and my dog. I am enjoying social dinners and lots of activities with new friends. I have a lovely private apartment and also a place to go to be with people that have a library and a fireplace. It feels like I have moved to a small town that has a strong sense of community. It feels like home.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
