What makes Silver Maples unique is our heart
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.

Quite simply… this place is very special! All residents, family members and staff contribute to its uniqueness. No place or person is perfect, what I’ve found is that everyone’s heart is in the right place. It’s truly a great place to work!
My mother-in-law truly blossomed, at the age of 90, when she moved to the Meadows at Silver Maples. She is never waiting by the phone to hear from us. She’s constantly out enjoying programs and events … it’s absolutely wonderful!!
We found ourselves in need of a day-time and respite care facility that could measure up to what we felt was our unique situation. Our Mom was a social being, wore lipstick before picking up the mail from the mailbox but dementia robbed her of her independence. Silver Maples restored her dignity, social life, and our ability to get through our demanding day and still give her loving care and attention she required. As challenges with Mom evolved, Silver Maples was ALWAYS there with a helping hand, keeping her safe and happy. We’ve recommended them to others who experienced the same outcome. Thank you Silver Maples.
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!
Let’s let Silver Maples’ meticulously cared for lawns, meandering sidewalks, beautifully maintained facilities and their close proximity to one of the finest medical centers around, speak for itself. What’s most important lies beyond the brick and mortar, it’s their incredible, caring staff. That’s what makes Silver Maples what it is, a warm, comfortable and friendly place to live. Our family will always be grateful that our mother had the opportunity to spend the autumn years of her life in such a wonderful retirement community.
When my mother came to live with us, she had no friends in the area and we were at a loss as to how to get her involved in activities. Your great program, the Maples Club, helped greatly with the adjustments that my mom needed to make in her life. She enjoyed “the club” and I found the staff to be exceptional. There were so many activities! Can you believe, even trips and picnics? Every time I picked my mother up, she wore a smile and I had such a great feeling knowing that she had been with a caring staff and involved in a well-planned program. Thank you for offering such a tremendous community program!
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
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
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
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!
