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.
Steering clear of senior focused scams is a good practice for anyone over the age of 65. Thanks to an aging population that is a little less internet savvy and a lot more polite, the FBI notes that seniors also are more likely to not report the scam until it is much too late. In fact, crooks rely on the fact that seniors are often poor witnesses, reporting the scam much too late and without too many details that can point the police in the direction of the bad guys.
If you have ever received a phone call or email that just didn’t seem right, you may have just missed a scam. Unfortunately, seniors often fall victim to cunning crooks who set their sights on a more polite and unsuspecting generation. The FBI notes that con artists often choose to go after aging adults because seniors make poor witnesses and have a large nest egg with excellent credit; these qualities make it too hard for a dishonest crook to resist.
