Arbor Place Dementia Care Founded & Directed by a Geriatric Psychiatrist



Arbor Place is a specially designed memory care home with 16 private bedrooms. The community is on one level eliminating barriers and offering easy access to nature in our secure garden area, patio, and putting green. Arbor Place is a wonderful alternative to larger, impersonal institutional facilities.
