The Silver Maples Difference Is The People
It’s difficult to truly know if the retirement neighborhood and lifestyle we’re offering is a perfect fit for you or your family member. What makes Silver Maples so unique has nothing to do with our wonderful building, fabulous programming, or convenient amenities and services. The uniqueness you feel comes from the daily interactions of our staff, residents and their families, as we support one another and strive to enjoy all that life has to offer. Glancing through our personal stories and testimonials is a wonderful way to dig deeper and learn more. We hope you enjoy the personal insights shared below.

Having lived at Silver Maples for more than five years now, I am unable to imagine a more satisfying and stimulating place to call home. Paraphrasing what another resident said at one of our weekly Men’s Coffee gatherings: “I thought I was coming to Silver Maples simply to live out the remaining years of my life. How wrong that was. I have discovered life here to be far more pleasant and fulfilling then I ever dreamed possible”.
We know quite a few people who are lucky enough to live at Silver Maples, many of them former Albion College profs, as was my father. Every time we visit, whether it’s for a program or a personal visit, we see people of all ages having a good time. We’ve been fortunate to exhibit at the gallery during Glass Month, and have enjoyed viewing the current showing of our friends John and Candace Pappas’s work there. I wrote on the Facebook page, before I saw the headline on this section, that Silver Maples has “heart”. You truly do.
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.
