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 Herndon.


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. Reviews like this one warm our hearts, “Moving to Arbor Terrace was the best decision my parents made in the past decade. Their quality of life is much improved and they are far happier and safer today than they were in their house.”

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 Alexander Muller’s are reassuring to others who are considering the move. He shared, “The rooms are sunny and comfortable. The staff works hard to make sure that this feels like home for every resident.”

Another resident, Elkin Taylor, provided this positive feedback, “Both residents and staff combine to make it a fine place to live.”  


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. Margo Wolcott shared this comforting review, “Arbor Terrace has been a godsend for my parents! Their apartment is a good size and is bright with lots of natural light. The food is delicious and nutritious. All the staff is so friendly and caring. I can rest assured knowing my parents are safe and surrounded by people who truly care about them.”


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.

We love receiving reviews like this one from a resident of Arbor Terrace Herndon. They shared online, “It is a comfortable, clean and safe place to live. There are activities and opportunities for friendship. I love it here.”

There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
