Life at Arbor Terrace

Dementia Care
Arbor Terrace Rocky Top

"Arbor Terrace staff are always approachable and friendly. They always take the time to help out in whatever way they can. Each time I enter the community I am so grateful to have such a caring place for mom to live."


Family Member

"Your employees are your very best asset! We are so pleased with everything about Arbor Terrace!"


Family Member

"For the past year and a half, I have worked a part time job that has afforded me an education outside of school. My summer job that turned into a permanent job has taught me responsibility, efficiency, organization and most importantly, respect."



"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."



"We moved our mother into the Memory Care neighborhood at Arbor Terrace from another local community. She is a new person, much happier, and all of our stress levels have dropped dramatically."
