My Mother moved to Silver Maples’ Independent Living in May 2014. Her stay there was very short but she loved every minute of it. In September she became ill and was placed in The Meadows Respite Care. We can’t say enough about the care she received. Every staff member always introduced themselves to all of us and made us feel that they really cared about Mother. They also made sure that her family had everything that they needed whether it be something to drink, food to eat and just caring. Mother was only in Respite Care for six days before she passed away, but what a wonderful experience we had. We would recommend The Meadows Respite Care to anyone who might need it.
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

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.
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!
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!
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!
