Now under construction, a new option in senior living and memory care will open in the Mountainside area soon: Arbor Terrace Mountainside.

The community is expected to be ready for new residents in March 2018. An information center recently opened at the new community’s location, 1050 Springfield Avenue, to welcome families interested in learning more.

Arbor Terrace Mountainside is being developed by Washington, D.C.-based Capitol Seniors Housing and managed by The Arbor Company, which has 30 years of experience operating communities for seniors. With the opening of Arbor Terrace Mountainside, Arbor will have nine (9) communities in the mid-Atlantic region, including New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. Meyer Senior Living Studio is managing the architecture and design of the 65,000-square foot, three-story community.

Arbor Terrace Mountainside will offer 35 senior living and 22 Evergreen memory care apartments. For those seniors with memory impairment in the transitional stage, who don’t yet need full-service memory care, Arbor Terrace Mountainside will feature 22 Bridges residences that provide an environment designed to help make the most of each day.

The community also will have two exciting new senior technologies: the Sagely cloud-based system, which keeps family members updated on their loved one’s progress and activities, via photos and frequent reports, and the iN2L computer-based system, which gives residents access to a wide array of interactive activities. Plus, The Arbor Company’s Cyber Seniors program will offer computers and Internet access in the community’s multi-purpose rooms, encouraging seniors to stay connected, communicate via email, and surf the web.

All residents will enjoy access to a wide range of support services and amenities, including the Torbog Fitness Center, Amato Theater, TOPS Café, Yungst Salon, and The Echo Restaurant. Every staff member will complete dementia care specialist training, a program that teaches positive approaches for helping residents experiencing cognitive decline. The program is unique to The Arbor Company. Arbor Terrace Mountainside will also offer Arbor’s award-winning Dining with Dignity program of nutritional meals served in a form that allows residents to retain their independence.


The new community is located off Route 22, close to the award-winning downtown area of Westfield, New Jersey.

“We’re looking forward to becoming part of the fabric of the Mountainside area community,” said Kelly Adams, executive director of Arbor Terrace Mountainside. “To get to know people in the community, we plan to host a ‘BBQ for Badges’ for area first responders, and we’ve joined the Mountainside Historic Committee.” Adams added that, once open, Arbor Terrace plans to offer intergenerational activities involving the children at the Primrose School next door to the community.
