More than 30,000 assisted living communities serve seniors across the United States. Though these communities exist in every region and neighborhood, few people know much about them until they begin researching options for a senior they love. The right memory care community can make a world of difference for seniors. Memory care offers activities that enhance the quality of life of seniors with dementia, while keeping them safe. Seniors remain active and social for longer, retaining a sense of purpose even in the face of memory loss.
The Grand Opening celebration of Arbor Terrace Shrewsbury was a night full of fun, games, friends, and good times.

Children and seniors can learn a lot from one another. Children connect seniors to the future, remind them of the simple joys of youth, and love without judgment. Seniors offer children wisdom, gentle encouragement, and an understanding of how we are all rooted in the past. Yet bridging generational gaps can prove difficult. Music allows people of all ages to connect, even without speaking. Last January, Arbor Terrace at Crabapple began connecting children and seniors through the Giving Tree Intergenerational Preschool Program.
