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 Willistown.
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. Terri Siggs shared this heartwarming message, “The staff really cares about my loved one and lets me know what activities she is enjoying there. I feel she is safe at Arbor.”
Feels Like Home
Senior living communities help build a sense of community. Our trained staff keeps residents engaged and maintains deep connections through shared interests and stories. Our community is modern and updated with cozy corners for reading, gardens, and dining rooms where residents eat together.
When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Liz Ruff’s are reassuring to families. She shared, “Arbor Terrace Willistown is a wonderful home for my mom. The caregivers and nursing staff feel like family to me. We work together towards the best outcome for my mom.”
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. Lindsey P. shared her loved one’s experience, “I have nothing but positive things to say about Arbor Terrace, from the staff, the amenities and activities, the outdoor spaces, and the residents! They are a caring group of individuals who treat everyone with respect and dignity, as they would their own family members.”
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.
Holly Kirby, a family member, commented, “It is such a hard decision to move your loved one into assisted living. Arbor Terrace Willistown is a wonderful community! They helped our mom with the transition and we are very happy with how things are going. Our mom is non-stop every day with activities and having lunch with her friends. We couldn’t have found a better community for our mother. Arbor Terrace is a beautiful, loving community with caring staff.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
