About The Arbor Company
With more than three decades of experience serving seniors, we are your senior living experts.
A Great Place to Work

Where Hospitality and Exceptional Care Meet
When The Arbor Company started more than 30 years ago, senior living looked very different than it does today. But the founders wanted to provide the best service to seniors by giving them the options that best suited their needs. Today, The Arbor Company operates more than 40 senior living communities across 11 states, each with various senior living options. We are still dedicated to serving seniors, providing exceptional care and making room for delightful surprises that celebrate life.
Focused on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At The Arbor Company, we are committed to building a company where everyone can thrive. We are proud of the work we do each day to care for seniors but we are honest about the racially imbalanced and often undervalued history of caregiving in this country. We can’t change history but we can change the future. We've made our plans and progress publicly viewable. Read more
