Arbor House Granbury is an all-inclusive, secure community for residents with memory care needs. We have created an environment to support residents to maintain their dignity and independence while receiving assistance in areas they may need support, such as dressing, bathing, medications and decision making. Our Life in Motion engagement programming allows residents to find joy, purpose and connection in their everyday lives. Our caregivers, as we call "friends", find a distinct connection with each resident that helps build relationships between the two, providing continuity and structure throughout the day. Whether it be enjoying snacks in the ice cream parlor, or helping bake a cake, enjoying the birds in the Aviary, or taking a walk in the secured courtyard, the residents of Arbor House are engaged with their "friends" and enjoy a more purpose-filled day!
Arbor House Granbury holds a special Certification for Alzheimer's Care. Residents enjoy a home-like living space that offers a kitchen area available to residents 24 hours a day, a neighborhood or individual house dining area, a living room where many engagements occur, a quieter family area that has a TV, private bedrooms and courtyards which are available for our residents enjoyment anytime they like. The community is comprised of 4 such houses, providing the smaller spaces as recommended in studies on proper environment for successful dementia living while giving ample community spaces for walks and larger engagement groups. Assistance with personal care needs and 24-hour care is provided in our uniquely caring environment. When space allows, Day Stay and Respite Care is also available.
At Arbor House, we give new meaning to life.
Life In Motion
At Arbor House, we believe that Life can have new meaning and it doesn't stop as we age - we stay In Motion. A balanced engagement program gives breath to this New Life in Motion by ensuring that Arbor House offers just what every person needs and wants to continue to enjoy and encounter life. This engagement program is composed of eight components, including: bodies, minds, hearts, dreams, friends, purpose, feelings and quiet moments. Residents can participate in engagements throughout the day that encompass these eight elements. Life in Motion is built around residents' needs and desires. Each Arbor House community is unique in the way they deliver these engagement programs - it all depends on the residents! Join us for Life In Motion! Our communities offer over 50 different programs daily. Programs are happening in each "house" simultaneously allowing residents the freedom to participate wherever they would like.
I learned more from you in five days than I did in the twenty years of taking care of my mother.
My mother has only been at Arbor House for two weeks. This was the hardest decision we ever had to make.
Everyone has been so wonderful to Mom.
We had a lot of concerns about her medical conditions but they have met every one of her needs.
We want to thank everyone who works there. The administration and staff have been great not only for the care and support of my mother, but also for the rest of our family.
