This place is magic. I cannot recommend it too highly. The residents, the staff, the beautiful grounds, all combine to create a warm, supportive atmosphere, a true family for the lucky people who live and work at its lovely campus.
My mother and my aunt moved to Silver Maples from Minnesota in 1998. My mother lived four happy and rich years there before she passed, while my aunt spent 21 years in a lovely independent living apartment, participating in the many wonderful activities Silver Maples offers. She was able to maintain her independence, insisting she didn’t need me to transport her for shopping or doctors’ appointments, as the Silver Maples van was always available. The social environment was a true second family to her. In the last six months, Doris had to move to assisted living, where she received skilled, loving, and utterly professional care until her death in November 2019.
At the end of her life, Arbor Hospice worked with Silver Maple’s staff to ensure Doris could remain in familiar surroundings. It’s telling that the hospice nurse who helped Doris through her last days said Silver Maples was the place she herself would like to retire to. I wholeheartedly agree.
