I visited this facility

This is an assisted living community, with a separate unit dedicated exclusively to memory care.

The facility is located directly off of Sheridan, which is a well traveled road. There is easy access"”and plenty of parking once you arrive.

The outside looks adobe, so it's quite striking and has a unique feel"”as opposed to most assisted living facilities that look like "normal" housing.

The grounds are really pretty and pleasing"”equipped with beautiful gardens and walkways on the site. And the common areas and rooms inside are kept very clean. With only 91 units"”studios and one bedrooms"”the place has an intimate feeling.

There are a number of well organized activities"”games, arts and crafts and tours. A number of different things are offered, both in and out of the facility, to keep people engaged.

The care is good. There are two LPNs on duty during the daytime, along with seven other caregivers. And at night, there are four caregivers and one nurse on duty; that's a good ratio of caregivers to residents. Staff members there go out of their way to answer questions and make sure residents get the care they need.

Because this is a smaller place, it may be best suited to those in the early stages of dementia, who can still get around but may need some help in orienting themselves.

I visited this facility

This is an older facility, but still in really nice shape. The location is easy to find, with good parking for visitors. A homey touch is a huge fish tank in a central location, with a nice garden area, with pleasant places to walk around.

The care staff is really good. The nursing director, who sets the tone for care there, is one of the best there is anywhere"”a friendly woman who spends time with each resident. She is very accessible and the residents all know and like her. She. The nurses are constantly around and seem attentive, which is good for family members who want information and it also helps with other health and safety concerns.

Residents say the food is good.

There is no gym or exercise equipment, which is a drawback for many people. There are basic exercise classes, but nothing too involved.

The staff at The Arbors seem to take clients out in the community a lot, which shows they are willing to go the extra mile to help people feel engaged.

The rooms are smaller than average, and equipped with safety and disability equipment, but there is nothing exciting about the layout. If there is a couple living in one room, it gets a bit cramped; couples might want to check out other facilities that can accommodate them better.

This is a great transitional facility"”there are patio homes, regular apartments, apartment with meals and assisted living, which makes it easy to shift around in the facility should care needs change. However, it may not be a good fit for someone who needs memory care or a lot of supervision.
