"How could I ever thank you for your care of my brother? I listened on the phone, last night, as he spoke of his thrilling time in a vintage airplane flying over fields, seeing cows and horses from the air! What a precious time for him and what a wonderful way to honor our Veterans. He told me of the cap he was given and the name "Ageless Aviation Dreams" and I looked it up on the internet. I had never even heard of such a thing, and I am going to send them a "thank you" also. Thank you for your great kindness to my brother, who, at this time in his life, needs all the kindness and love from us. May God return to you all that you give to the residents at Arbor Terrace!"

Ruth, Family Member

"I just wanted to thank you all for the excellent care that you provided our mother during the past two years. Although my sister and I were so distracted at times with our extended family struggles, we never once had to worry about our mother's well-being at Arbor Terrace. She was surrounded by good people, and we could sense that the minute we walked through the front door."

Catherine, Family Member

"He was in a safe, caring place. All our friends at Arbor Terrace, Words simply cannot express the thankfulness we have in our hearts toward all of you. My dad spent nearly three years in your loving care, and we always felt he was in a safe, caring place. Please know we will never forget how you all loved and cared for our dad."

Family Member

"I want to thank each and every one of you for the exceptional work you do. I am continually amazed at the outstanding quality of care that you provide at Arbor Terrace. You somehow manage to see the unique divine essence of each resident and nurture it as if tending a garden with blooms yet to come. Thanks for all you do."

Family Member

"I want to express my appreciation for all you and your staff have done for my parents over the last two years. 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!"
