When an emergency strikes, the situation can quickly become complicated if a person with dementia is affected.

The time has come to say goodbye to a great leader, not only in The Arbor Company, but also in the entire senior living industry. Shirley Paulk, our Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing retires this week, and The Arbor Company will forever be different without her here.
Here at The Arbor Company, we are excited by the active and fulfilling lives of our residents. Recently, a handful of veteran seniors from Arbor Terrace at Kingwood Town Center in Kingwood and Arbor Terrace Cinco Ranch in Katy had the chance to relive their flying days thanks to the non profit organization, Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation.
Earlier this month, we recognized 26 members of our staff as recipients of the 2015 Arbor Star Award. They were all chosen because each one embodies the Arbor Service Way—our standards for great service—in their own special ways.
It was "Lights, camera, action" at the Summit of Uptown, a newly acquired Arbor community in Park Ridge, IL, when the film crew used this hub of community life for more than 30 years as one of the locations for the independent movie Jim Shoe which premiered at The Pickwick Theatre just a block from the Summit on Wednesday, Feb. 10.
Long a hub of community life in the town it has called home for more than 30 years, Summit of Uptown hit the silver screen when Jim Shoe premiered at the iconic Pickwick Theatre just one block from Summit in Uptown in Park Ridge, IL. Not since Blues Brothers Jake and Elwood spun out in the intersection of Talcott, Devon and Courtland after speeding past the Shell Gas Station and Nelson Funeral Home have the familiar sights of Park Ridge been showcased like this on the big screen. Other Park Ridge locations include Mac's Restaurant on Higgins and Ryan-Parke Funeral Home on Northwest Highway. Spreading the Summit's fame via the magic of the movies, this independent film produced by local resident David Hoelscher, premiered in his hometown at the Pickwick, a world renowned art deco movie palace, on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m.
