Working in the home health care field since 1991, Karen Solomon-Kelly saw a need for affordable assisted living on Long Island, which had become out of reach for many Long Islanders for a long time. Her belief that high quality assisted living doesn’t have to be cost-prohibitive to hard working Long Islanders… retired police, teachers, nurses and the like; led to her opening the doors to The Arbors Assisted Living in 2005.
Focusing on providing a very high standard of living and compassionate care to seniors that fosters independence and safety, Karen Solomon-Kelly developed a unique model for long-term care at an affordable price. Not only was quality and affordability important, it needed to feel like home, since The Arbors is not a “facility”, it is HOME to its residents. Karen believes in The Arbors so much, that her mother recently moved into the Islandia community.
By developing a local hands-on Regional team of professionals with a wealth of experience in the Assisted Living business, each of the five Arbors communities have a support system in place. Led by Karen Solomon-Kelly as the president, having this local management team consistently in the communities provides a personal touch unique to The Arbors. The corporate office is located in one of the communities, which also helps the team to stay focussed on the daily operations. Residents and their families know the team personally, and they get feedback to continually improve and make The Arbors not only a transparent, efficient business but also feel very much like home.
With five communities located in both Nassau and Suffolk County Long Island, The Arbors is among the finest choices you can make. The Arbors all-inclusive monthly rate is also unique in that it includes all care. Where most Assisted Living communities charge additionally depending on how much care is needed, this can cause unexpected rate increases as needs increase. With The Arbors’ simplified cost of assisted living, this makes it easier for you to plan ahead, as the price will not increase with the need for additional care.
