"A year ago, my husband became someone we didn’t recognize. Dementia made its presence known and fear, confusion, and hopelessness became part of our families’ life. Arbor Terrace staff reached out to us with open arms, loving support and much-needed information. Now my husband is surrounded by people he knows and trusts, lives in a safe environment and understands the reality of dementia. We are so grateful for your loving support."
