Sometimes it is no longer safe for your loved one to live alone at home.

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.

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Carolyn Holl’s are reassuring to families. She shared, “It’s a beautiful environment, but what really matters is that they take care of the residents so very well. I'm a family member and have found the staff to be very responsive to my questions and concerns and very caring with my loved one. I'm very comfortable leaving him there for days without visiting to check on him. We are lucky he is there.”
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. Donna Andrucyk shared her loved one’s experience, “Arbor Terrace Shrewsbury is a beautiful, clean, cheerful place to live. The food is great; there is a wide variety of activities. The staff is amazing. They treat residents and their family members as valued guests and constantly go above and beyond to help when it is needed. Occupational and physical therapy available on-site is a wonderful convenience. My mother is so lucky to live there. I tell her it is like being on vacation every day and she agrees!”
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.
George Anderson, a family member commented, “Arbor Terrace is definitely a place to consider. The staff is very effective and kind. The community and activities are good. We visit our family member almost every day, so our perspective is on target.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
