I was there were more options for weekend activities for those who do not have family and friends nearby and I wish they had a staff person to help with computer and cable problems and a person to provide advise to make sure we are aware and using the various service available to us such a having prescription's delivered. I would not recommend a community that has a buy in or required that you have a certain amount of liquid assets. I would not recommend a community where I could not age in place.

This was a nice community. The pricing was too high for me.

This is a very nice place. The staff are very considerate, and very helpful. There are a lot of activities for the residents to choose from. Trips to restaurants, games, bocce ball, church service, bible study, and more are some of the activities available. There is a library and movie theater on site. There is even a thrift shop on site, as well. The community has a chef meeting for the residents to provide feed back as to what they would like to see on the menus.
This is a great place. I would highly recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The staff are attentive, cooperative, assist with any means, and more. I have no complaints about the community. My loved one enjoys the food. Every now and then there will sometimes not be food soft enough for my loved one's needs. Some of the activities offered are art classes, historian speakers, music, and more for the residents to choose from.
This community was very nice, we are really deep in our religion and we felt like our loved ones would not have others that were similar around them to be comfortable.
I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. My loved one seems to enjoy the community. Some of the activities include fellowship meeting, bingo, an Eagles watch party, outings, and more for the residents to choose from.
The staff is extremely attentive, friendly, and caring I would definitely recommend this community to others
Our mom is adjusting to her new home. After losing her husband of 56 years, selling her home of 53 years, and a cross-country move she's doing well in her new home. In our daily conversations, she tells me that the food is delicious, staff friendly, many activities to choose from, and she loves having a cleaning person in every couple weeks. Thank you!
My mother in law had decided to downsize from her home to an apartment. My husband and I were on board with the down size but not the apartment. She is a very social person and isolating herself into an apartment was not what we wanted for her. I have been in senior care for years and suggested we look at Independent Living apartments. We began our search. She found amenities she like and disliked. She first visited Arbour Square with a friend. She then wanted me to see it. We hit a home run there. The facility was spacious and beautifully decorated. Everyone greeted us with a smile, including the residents we passed in the halls. She found an apartment with a great view. It included a full kitchen which was one thing she did not want to give up. Her furniture she wanted to keep fit right in and we updated with a few new pieces. She has made new friends, enjoys getting involved and attending activities she is interested in. Recently due to illness the Physical Therapy had been very convenient and she truly likes all the therapists. Over the winter we knew she was safe. As children we cannot ask for anything more for her. She is checked on daily and has taken advantage of many of the available services offered. Our mother is content.
My mother and father moved into Arbour Square in the Fall of 2014. My father has passed away recently but my mother continues to thrive within this community. She is so very happy there as she has made wonderful friends. The concerts and numerous activities bring her so much enjoyment. As her family, we always feel welcome to enjoy meals with her in the beautiful and well appointed dining room. Family events such as Halloween and Easter parties as well as Santa coming at Christmas time have brought her grandchildren and great grandchildren to AS to see Grandma in her happy environment. Mom just loves it! All of the staff and especially the Director, [name removed] are sincerely warm and embracing to all. Arbour Square is a wonderfully run and managed community.
very nice place
Several years ago while eating alone in the cafe I suffered an attack of global transient amnesia. Our chef immediately came to the table and calmed me down, escorted me to my room and make me comfortable and assured me all would be well. Staff came to my room and comforted me and stood until the attack passed. After leaving for a short time I moved back after realizing that the everyday chores were too much and Arbour Square was my home. I was not present at this time my things were moved back into my apartment, I was in the hospital. [Name removed] arranged to have several workers come to my apartment and put it in order. When I finally moved in, 3 months later I had a comfortable apartment. I have had several falls and the staff has been responsive and helped me immediately. I really feel that I am back home where I want to be with my friends and family.
My mother stayed for 2 weeks for respite care after a serious injury. The staff was very nice, attentive, accommodating, and communicated well. Special shout out to the chef who made delicious soups for my mother every day (she had her jaw wired shut). The facility was clean and nice, and they had daily activities for the residents. Plus pets are allowed to visit, which was a huge spirit lifter for my mother as well as the other residents, I'm sure.
Mom is REALLY enjoying her "golden" years living at Arbour Square. My mother feels happy and secure, knowing that she needn't worry about taking care of a big house and property and the associated financial burdens. Mom has an amble kitchen at Arbour Square, if she gets the urge, but takes most meals in the dining room. Mom lost Dad after 63 years of marriage, and I feel that the sense of community at Arbour Square has been invaluable to her mental health and overall happiness. And both Mom and myself take comfort knowing there always some nearby if she needs assistance; which has twice likely saved her life. And most importantly: My mom loves living at Arbour Square!!
From the first moment that I walked into Arbour Square five years ago, I knew that I had found the perfect home for my parents, who were relocating to this area from Florida. After visiting several retirement communities in the area, I was so impressed with the cleanliness, the activities available to residents, the dining experience, and the continual support from the Maintenance Department. I have valued the competency and compassion that the entire staff has always shown. [Name removed], the Executive Director, is the face of Arbour Square and has always reached out immediately regarding any question that I posed regarding my parents. She has shown such love to my family, both when we lost my Dad two years ago and most recently with my Mom's passing. I felt so blessed with [name removed], [name removed], the case worker, [name removed], the first face that I saw at Arbour Square as Marketing Manager, and [name removed], the director of the Wellness Center as they visited Mom on numerous occasions at the hospital, rehab and during her hospice stay. I will sing my praises of Arbour Square and Hillside forever!
My mother was a resident at Arbor Square for 4 years. The campus and facility was always kept pristine and updated. The most important aspect, however, was the care and friendliness of the staff. From the Executive Director to the Maintenance Team, they ALWAYS were warm and friendly. My mother loved the employees and they showed genuine concern for her safety and well-being. I would recommend Arbor Square to anyone looking for an independent living experience.
I have enjoyed living at Arbour Square. I like the food. The only bad experience so far is the fire drills and fire alarms. There has been more fire alarms than fire drills. So far I feel that is part of living in this type of facility. I moved here from Virginia. I still drive. The website for Pennsylvania DOT was not very helpful to someone moving into Pennsylvania.
They are very friendly there and have been very supportive. They were great on move in and the meals are pretty good. The service at meal time is good. Access from a family standpoint is easy and they communicate very well with the family when we need it. The PT there is great!
I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience my dad and I have had at Arbour Square. The entire team has been involved personally with my dad since the time he moved in, and they go above and beyond what I could have ever expected. [Name removed], the Executive Director, and [name removed], his case manager, have helped my father and me on several occasions with coordinating changes in his care. My dad loves the activities and enjoys interacting with the staff. The maintenance department is great. My dad loves the food, and enjoys talking with the chefs. The community is beautiful! Our experience has been nothing less than amazing, and I have complete peace of my mind that my dad is safe in his home.
Our Mom was a resident in independent living at Arbour Square for 4 years. During that time we met many of the staff at Arbour Square – [name removed] and her staff are all very professional with a refreshingly high level of caring and concern for each resident. Mom enjoyed living there in a spacious apartment with many friendly and caring neighbors. Knowing that our mom was in such a caring environment gave us great peace of mind for the times when we could not be there with her. I was even more impressed by the level of thoughtfulness and kindness that the staff provided to my mom as she struggled more and more with her memory. If you are looking for an exceptional place for independent living with first rate employees, I highly recommend you check out Arbour Square.
