Arbor Terrace Exton
4.0

We like the modern takes the facility has, it is brand new so it jumps out at you as being quite lovely. Since it is a newer community and them having to start fro scratch there are a few areas that could use some improvement, and work out the kinks. Most of the staff members are pretty friendly.

I think you have to stay on top of things, note issues, and continue to follow up so things don't fall through the cracks. But I think that would be no different anywhere else. The staff have been good. The facility itself is fine. From my observations, I don't' see a lot of the activities to be interactive. They seem to be more along the lines of putting a movie on, or showing a recorded mass on Sundays, things like that.

They made the process of getting our famly member in very easy. It's a lovely facility and looks like a home. I like that everything is all on one floor and that it's a very secure facility. Everybody I've come into contact with has been lovely. One are for improvement is I would like to see them take the residents outside more often on nicer days. They have a very nice courtyard outside that I wish the residents got to enjoy more.
