We moved Mom into Arbor Grove Assisted Living & Memory Care. It's wonderful. They have a lot of activities. She gets three meals a day. I have no complaints. Our interaction with the staff is wonderful. She has a little kitchenette in her room and a refrigerator. She's got a nice big bathroom with a seat in it, and there's a little bedroom part. It's just wonderful. The bay window is very nice. They have different floor plans. They have bingo, trivia, they had a guy come in for music, animals come in there, and people come in and play their instruments and have singalongs. They have a lot of games, they have puzzles, and they have crafts. They have everything. They have a beauty salon and a library when you walk in. It's beautiful. She's been doing crafts and stuff. You don't have to do anything. You just do what you want. I've heard a lot of good things about Arbor Grove and I agree with everything that I've heard.

The staff that I have met are awesome. The facility is clean and well managed. While there has been some turnover, they always seem to backfill in a timely manner. Dad enjoys the activities and interactions with staff and other residents. The socialization has been good for dads overall well-being.

Rooms are very spacious. Facility is super nice & always very clean & fresh. My mom really likes the food & says the staff is attentive & caring. There are also lots of activities for the residents. When we visit her the staff is always welcoming & kind. We wish they would accept Medicaid.

Arbor Grove's staff and residents have become an extended family for my family member. The staff have a positive attitude and you can tell they enjoy building a relationship with each person and learning their life story. The building itself is beautifully maintained, the grounds and sunny courtyard are landscaped to be colorful and inviting in every season. Many staff are long term employees, and all seem to have been chosen for their kindness professional ism and caring. Meals are nutritious, and visually appealing. Rooms are sunny and people decorate and make them their own. Everything is keep clean. There are fun activities planned to enrich and help build a social network. Family is welcome at any time, and if you have special needs or questions they are helpful and responsive! Thank you for being a blessing to our family!

Mom’s one-bedroom apartment is perfect for her. The staff keeps it clean and inviting. She is able to have many of her favorite pictures and art hanging on her walls. Mom enjoys Bingo, Left-Right-Center and particularly likes live music. The Resident Council is beneficial for voicing concerns. The staff is caring and professional.

From the very beginning when I first walked into Arbor Grove looking for a place for my dad, I was immediately welcomed and the staff spent so much time with me going over anything and everything, question upon question! The way I explained Arbor Grove to my siblings was " it's not the typical nursing home, it's so much more home like and family like". Perfect for my dad! I can pick up the phone and talk to someone right away if I have any concern or questions. They treat the residents with so much love and respect and care and concern. My family and I are so thankful for a wonderful place for my dad! They are so helpful with his meds, and medical changes, even if dad was on a diet the kitchen helped meet dad's needs to follow his diet. Bill pay is easy and simple. They keep great records and give you all the end of year info you need for taxes. They are quick to get your family member an appointment when needed. But the best part of Arbor Grove to me.... Is my dad is treated like a valued, special, human being and to make them feel at home truly. My heart is happy and full because my dad's heart is full!

I visited this facility

We saw the Arbor Grove Assisted Living & Memory Care. It looked nice. They showed us a one-bedroom in the memory unit. From the memory unit, we liked the way that you were able to go out to the little area in the middle, and they had it all gated-off. My dad could take his walker and walk around through a path, or sidewalk going around which was very nice. I liked that they had security so they couldn't leave. It looked clean and fine. When we walked into the dining area, the tables had all the plates, all nicely set up, and looked very nice. We're talking about church services and stuff, my parents are both Catholic. They were talking about how they could get communion on Tuesday.

My mom has called Arbor Grove her “home” for 3 1/2 years. She feels safe there. She is very well taken care of. The staff is very friendly, compassionate and caring. The rooms are spacious and clean. My mom loves to play bingo. She wishes it was played every day! They serve a nice variety of food. I would highly recommend Arbor Grove to anyone looking for a home for their loved one

The living facilities are very nice. The staff is concerned and efficient. I would like to see more physical activities available. They have nice outside courtyard, but it could use better maintenance. My mother enjoys the bingo games.

Rooms are big and they allow residents to bring in furniture and things to make it feel like home. The staff is very helpful and has provided all the services we have asked. Activities like bingo and other games like that are the most enjoyable.

Our parents lived in the assisted living and our Mom now lives in memory care. This is a beautiful facility with a wonderful courtyard for sitting, walking & activities. The rooms are spacious, up to date and very nice. The staff is caring, kind and compassionate. They are always available for questions and to seek out answers. Arbor Grove is a wonderful place!

Arbor Grove has been a very kind and caring facility for my Mom to live in. The rooms are spacious and clean. There are a wide variety of daily activities for your loved one to participate in and enjoy. The employees encourage residents to join in. They bring in live music for residents to enjoy. They also invite students and classes from the local school to interact with the residents on different holidays. They play cards, BINGO, Trivia and have numerous outdoor activities when weather permits. The employees are patient and helpful to Mom whenever she needs them. They have always been helpful to me as well whenever O have had a question or concern. I feel very fortunate that Mom has such a nice play to live in with a caring community of helpers.

The rooms are very nice and well temperature controlled with individual thermostats. We were allowed to bring in all of my mom's things and they were very helpful in hanging pictures on the walls. The maintenance man is very helpful and kind to all of the residents. They have an enclosed courtyard that residents can access at anytime for a walk or breath of fresh air. They do not have a van/bus to transport residents to off site activities. Sometimes, they use city bus, or commercial bus, but not very often due to expense. The activities have become more limited, and there are not many in the evening. I find the staff very responsive to my concerns. As with all facilities, they have had a fair amount of turn over, but there is a core group of care givers who have been employees for awhile. In assisted living, the care givers are not required to be CNA's.

My father as lived at Arbor Grove about 4 years. He loves it and so do we. The facility is beautiful and the staff is great. They are friendly and knowledgeable. They keep in contact with us. Dad has plenty to do there and seems to always be busy. During COVID 19 we were always updated about state regulations and they found creative ways for us to stay in touch with our loved ones. If your loved one can’t be at home Arbor Grove is a great choice for you.

Arbor Grove has the best staff. My mother has been a resident there since 2015 and she has received the best care that we could have hoped for. They have a daily calendar which is full of group activities that the residents are encouraged to attend. Bingo is a favorite for everyone! If a resident has difficulty with an activity, a staff member is right there to help out. The private apartments are clean and well maintained. The kitchen staff take pride in serving up delicious meals everyday! I would recommend Arbor Grove Assisted Living of Alma to any family.

My Mom is here at Arbor Grove! Of course, she would prefer to be home, but she and our family agreed, she is where she needs to be! They treat her with so much kindness and love! She is happy and well taken care of. She loves her walks down the hallways every day and has made some friends along the way! They provide lots of entertainment for the residents. My Mom loves the music they provide. Thru this pandemic, they have kept everyone safe! It is a gorgeous facility and is kept very clean and is decorated beautifully. Her room is spacious, with a large living room, bedroom and bathroom. She has her own furniture and pictures hanging on the walls, so it feels like her own home! They have doctors, and nurses on staff so her health is a priority, as well. We are very pleased with how well she is being cared for!! That piece of mind that she comes first is a huge relief to our family!!

Deciding to move to Assisted Living was not an easy decision for my father, but the staff at Arbor Grove made the transition a positive experience. My father has a cat he rescued, that has kept him company since my mother had to move into a memory care unit. Ruby means the world to my Dad and he was able to bring her with him to Arbor Grove. They share what Dad refers to as his "bachelor pad" He has a spacious living room with kitchenette, a large bedroom with walk in closet, two large bay windows, and a bathroom with a walk in shower. Dad participates in the group activities and has become friends with the residents and staff. Dad receives the help he needs - well balanced well balanced home-cooked meals, housekeeping, and laundry; while still maintaining his independence. Dad is still safe to drive and comes and goes as he pleases. Arbor Grove provides peace of mind for my sister and me; we know he is safe and well cared for when we can't be there. As a nurse, I am particular about the care my Dad receives and Arbor Grove has exceeded my expectations. I only wish we had made the move several years earlier!
