  • Fantastic facility!

    When seeking out a senior living apartment for my uncle I had specific requirements and expectations to meet his needs. Arbor Court met all of those needs and expectations and then some. The staff takes great pride in keeping the facility in top-notch condition and they offer a wide variety of social programs from which to choose. My uncle's favorite part of the experience though is the food. Very rarely is there a menu item that he does not like or is not up to standards. It also gives us great peace of mind to have staff onsite 24/7 for emergencies.

  • Arbor Court is warm and comfortable.

    My mom lived in Arbor Court for several months before her unexpected death in February 2019. She really liked living there. The facility is nice - - clean, bright, and well-appointed, without being too fancy. The apartments are good-sized and well laid-out, the food is good, and the residents and staff are nice and caring. Mom liked that she could participate in the activities she was interested in, but didn't feel pressure to do more. She was able to live the life she wanted, while living in a supportive community that took some of the weight of cooking and cleaning off her shoulders.
