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.

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.

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.

Serving on this board of directors is a pleasure. Steve Rolston and his Department Directors work hard to make the SMOC 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!

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

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

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

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!

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
