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.

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

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!

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!

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

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!

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.

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
