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.

We would love to hear from you! Click here to share your Silver Maples story.

I would like to express my appreciation to the Silver Maples staff and especially the Maples Club. This program allowed me to keep my husband home with me for at least an extra year before I couldn’t take care of him alone any more. The caring staff and the socialization he got from going to the many activities offered throughout the day enriched his life and saved mine. Thank you for helping us through this emotional rollercoaster. I will be forever thankful for the Maples Club.

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.

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

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!

The sincerity and caring is so real! I appreciate that so much. Prior to Dad moving to Silver Maples … I always thought that no one could take care of my dad better than me. Well, I now know that the RCAs here at Silver Maples do just that! Read more

Whenever I have visited the facilities there at Silver Maples I have always been greeted with a smile and people who seem to have genuinely been concerned with the my Mother’s needs. I would highly recommend Silver Maples to others. Read more

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!!

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!

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!
