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 Sudley Manor.


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 Jennifer Coate’s warm our hearts, “The staff here is very caring and treats my mom with respect and dignity. The community is beautiful and well maintained. The food is nicely prepared and overall excellent. I am truly grateful for the commitment to safety during the pandemic.”

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 Melanie Mcandrew’s are reassuring to others who are considering the move. She shared, “My mom and I toured many assisted living communities and decided Arbor Terrace was the best choice by far. The staff is very welcoming and it just feels like home when you walk in. My mom has been there over a year and I am very pleased with the care she receives in the Evergreen Memory Care part of the community.”


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.

“Arbor Terrace is a warm, welcoming home for your loved one. It doesn’t feel like a ‘community.’ Staff treats my mom with respect and are very friendly. Great nursing care and great food,” approved Ann Rychlik.


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.

One family member gushed, “Arbor Terrace Sudley Manor is filled with highly skilled, compassionate, caring professionals who have made my mom’s time there so fulfilling. The well-organized activities have kept her so happy and stimulated, and everyone has taken such good care of her that her quality of life has improved significantly since her arrival. She is very lucky to be around people who help her so much and make her feel worthwhile and happy.”

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