Across the U.S. people of all ages took a break on Monday, August 21 to view the first total eclipse since 1918. In honor of the rare astronomical event, residents and staff at Arbor Company communities held viewing parties and learned about the eclipse.
Meals are collective activities that allow us to socialize and engage with other members of our communities, and three square meals a day provide a great nutritional framework to keep our bodies healthy.
You would think that having a full-time job, plus a part-time job, would keep the Rev. Marquis Townes busy enough. But somehow, with the help of his family, he's found a way to also make a difference in the lives of children with special needs. And in a small way, the residents and staff of Eden Terrace in Spartanburg, S.C., are helping him do that this holiday season.
We are so pleased to announce that Arbor Terrace has been selected as a "Caring Super Star of 2017” for service excellence in Assisted Living, in three or more years since 2012. In ratings and reviews from family caregivers and cognitively healthy older adults, Arbor Terrace earned a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score) within the last year, while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other qualifying criteria for this national honor year after year. Nationwide, there are only 67 Caring Super Stars in 2017, so Arbor Terrace truly stands out as among the top senior living communities in the country.
It’s a simple question, but it gets at the heart of what The Arbor Company is all about. We're intensely focused on ensuring that our residents and their families are happy with the service we provide, and that our employees find their work rewarding.
