This is the right place

We have been very happy with The Arbors. My mother feels extremely well cared for and "loved". She gets support whenever she requests it and she absolutely loves the food provided. Since moving here, my mothers health issues have improved tremendously because of the attention from nursing staff and the doctor who works here part time. I would highly recommend to others looking.

Dedicated to Memory Care

The team at The Arbors is very caring. They provide very high-quality dementia care. Their reputation spans decades of devotion to people living with Alzheimer's and related memory loss issues.

So impressed!

We have been very impressed with the Arbors. My husband and I visit my mother-in-law almost every day at different times of the day and each time we are greeted with smiles. Everyone seemed to know my mother in law’s name within 24 hours of moving in and they go out of their way to let us know how she is doing and what activities she has participated in. They have been very responsive to our requests such as making sure she goes on the twice weekly outings, making sure she gets a shower every other day, and making sure she gets a haircut on a regular basis. We also asked them to make sure she is participating in as many activities as possible and they are making that happen for her. Every member of the Arbors team I have communicated with has gotten back to me within the same day (email or phone calls). I see at least one manager out and about interacting with the residents each time I visit. My husband and I are relieved his Mom is in such capable, professional and kind hands!

The Arbors at Shelburne Vt

The only good thing about this place is [name removed], whose knowledge and treatment of Alzheimer’s is beyond reproach... I would not place my dog, let alone my wife, in this environment ever again. My children were equally discussted with how their mother was treated. I can’t begin to discribed the conditions under which which she was cared for.... as soon as we had the proper people in place at home we got her out of there. Thanks to Home Care Assistance.... and [name removed] She is thriving at home.

Administration will slander you

Beware , if you try to bring a family member home , you will get slandered by the administration, making it difficult to get another doctor. Any attempt at removal will be viewed as " against medical advice" . and lots of them bad mouthing your ability to provide care to anyone they can contact...not just your potential new dr, but ANY family members , landlords , employers. The administration is allll about keeping those beds filled, and once they have a patient they wont let them go till the day the money runs out. If i was rich, i would sue them all day long.

It was a good place...

My father has passed away, but for the time that he was at The Arbors of Shelburne, we were satisfied with the care that he received. It was a good place.

done a good job

They have done a really good job with my dad. He is deaf and they have done a really good job in dealing with that. It's been a good experience with The Arbors of Shelburne and I would recommend them.

Highest Recommendation for the Arbors!

We feel so fortunate to have been able to have my Mom stay at the Arbors during her late stages of Alzheimer's-type-dementia. This is a wonderful community: the staff is enabled and supported....the facilities are great....and management really cares about the residents and their familes. We gladly give our highest recommendation for eldercare at the Arbors!
