My mom and dad just moved into Arbour Square. From the first time we visited Arbour Square the staff has been so helpful, kind and caring. They take time to know the residents by their names and what they need and prefer. The family has visited mom and dad. The dining staff made all of us feel very welcome. Nothing is to much trouble.
