We recently moved in to The Arbordale. Our transition went very smoothly with the help of the staff. We are most impressed with the staff. They are all so helpful, friendly, and willing to assist in any way. A happy team makes for happy residents. We knew from the time we were greeted at the front door the first time; this was the place for us. We are so happy to be here.
