Personal insight from our residents, families and staff

What makes Silver Maples so unique has nothing to do with our wonderful building, fabulous programming, or convenient amenities and services. What really makes us unique is our heart and how our staff, residents and families interact daily and the things we do to enjoy all that life has to offer. Below is some insight from those who have either known us for years or are brand new friends and fans of our unique retirement neighborhood. We hope you enjoy the personal insight.

An eighteen year resident of Florida, upon the death of my wife, I decided to return to Michigan where my two sons lived. I asked them to find a place I could move to. They spent some time comparing various future homes and finally suggested Silver Maples. It pays to have good sons – they were so right! The facility, the staff, the food and the atmosphere are all excellent! I am more than satisfied – I am happy here!

I started at Silver Maples a while ago, it was supposed to be a “temporary” position. I enjoy the residents and staff here so much, I’ve now been here 13 years, its home away from home. Silver Maples is a neighborhood where new friends are made and we get to share our great families!

Serving on this board of directors is a pleasure. Steve Rolston and his Department Directors work hard to make the Silver Maples’ mission a reality for everyone who makes their home here. It’s not just the department directors, everyone takes care of everyone with skill, compassion and good cheer.

Our family is so thankful that Mom was able to get an apartment at Silver Maples. The past year has given her some medical challenges and the staff is so supportive. You all have become extended family to us, keeping Mom safe and independent. Thanks for your dedication to the residents and families to keep the community pleasant and positive.

The Maples Club, Silver Maples’ Adult Day Program, gave my husband Bob the socialization that he could no longer get from just being at home with me. I bless the caring souls who helped us through those years! Read more

There’s just something special about being a part of this community. Maybe it’s the water! But there’s a sense of family…community, between residents and staff. We care for each other. We’re each part of what we do here. Opinions and feedback are shared. Projects and programs, friendships and family, move forward together. But my favorite part about being a member of Silver Maples? The residents. They are all so cool. So funny. So serious. So well-traveled. So insightful. So fun to be with. So interesting. Everyone is different and everyone has something to share!

We visited other places and nobody said ‘hello’ or even smiled at us. At Silver Maples, we felt welcomed and part of the community right at the outset. Read more

Once I settled in, I quickly found that I hadn’t moved to a slow-paced retirement community. I’d moved to a community bustling with activities, including lots of social occasions. Read more

Before we began our tour, I was prepared to end it with a smile and an ‘Okay, that’s nice, now let’s go home.’ But the place just stole my heart. … What clinched it for me was walking into the apartment that is now mine. I literally gasped – it felt so much like home! Read more
