The Silver Maples Difference Is The People
It’s difficult to truly know if the retirement neighborhood and lifestyle we’re offering is a perfect fit for you or your family member. What makes Silver Maples so unique has nothing to do with our wonderful building, fabulous programming, or convenient amenities and services. The uniqueness you feel comes from the daily interactions of our staff, residents and their families, as we support one another and strive to enjoy all that life has to offer. Glancing through our personal stories and testimonials is a wonderful way to dig deeper and learn more. We hope you enjoy the personal insights shared below.

We know quite a few people who are lucky enough to live at Silver Maples, many of them former Albion College profs, as was my father. Every time we visit, whether it’s for a program or a personal visit, we see people of all ages having a good time. We’ve been fortunate to exhibit at the gallery during Glass Month, and have enjoyed viewing the current showing of our friends John and Candace Pappas’s work there. I wrote on the Facebook page, before I saw the headline on this section, that Silver Maples has “heart”. You truly do.
My Mother moved to Silver Maples’ Independent Living in May 2014. Her stay there was very short but she loved every minute of it. In September she became ill and was placed in The Meadows Respite Care. We can’t say enough about the care she received. Every staff member always introduced themselves to all of us and made us feel that they really cared about Mother. They also made sure that her family had everything that they needed whether it be something to drink, food to eat and just caring. Mother was only in Respite Care for six days before she passed away, but what a wonderful experience we had. We would recommend The Meadows Respite Care to anyone who might need it.
Every time I visit my parents at Silver Maples I get the sense that my folks are in college and having the time of their lives. The only thing missing is the studying and exams. They have so many friends, we can’t walk down the hall without stopping to chat with someone. They go to exercise class and laugh with their friends and then over to the coffee hour where they chat some more. They love going to lunch and dinner and socializing with their friends. My mother loves to pronounce proudly that “I never have to cook again!” Even going to get their mail is an excuse to check in with their neighbors and hear all the latest news.
I can say with absolute certainty that my parents’ time at Silver Maples has been one big party. Thank goodness I don’t have to worry about their grades!
