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 Kingwood Town Center.
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. Kathy Cochan shared this heartwarming message, “my mom and my mother-in-law both reside here. It is a wonderful place for your parent/parents to still have their independence while staying safe. I love the fact that everyone looks after each other and that I don't have to worry about them being happy and secure as we have to go by their schedules when it comes to visitation!”
Feels Like Home

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Reta Mendenhall’s are reassuring to others considering the move. She shared, “You could not find a more friendly place anywhere!! The staff and the residents are so helpful. I lived here for 2 years, moved to Conroe but came back here after a year! Was welcomed back with open arms! Best place to call home!”
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 modern and updated decor, senior living communities offer many amenities like housekeeping, laundry services, and transportation. Positive reviews like this one warm our hearts. Joanna Jameson shared, “Arbor Terrace is a family and staff who love and care for all their tenants. The staff goes over and beyond to make sure the food is delicious, the community is immaculate and cleaned 24/7, they have great fun activities for my mom to do with her friends and the grounds are gorgeous with colorful landscaping. She has staff to help her if she needs them and she feels safe and cared for. Arbor Terrace is a wonderful community!”
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.
Julie Pounds said, “The management and staff truly care about the safety and comfort of the residents. They go above and beyond to ensure each resident's needs are met. There are a variety of planned activities with something for everyone. They are also great at keeping family advised of any concerns that may arise. My mom has lived there for 5 years. She says she feels very lucky to have found such a great place to live.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
