This is a nice medium-sized facility. The building is one story. The building and grounds are well maintained. They have lots of palm trees and a beautiful courtyard with flowers and greenery. There is a patio and walking areas.
All the rooms are one bedroom apartments. They are private or semi private.All are handicapped equipped and have alarm system.They do not cook as all meals are provided and snacks. They have a nice dining room which is restaurant style. The food is very good. They have an ice cream parlor. This so nicely decorated and set up like a town square which looks as you are in the french quarter in New Orleans. They have a beauty salon,sitting and activity area and have internet access. Outside in the courtyard they have beautiful like botanical style gardens you can walk in.

A very nice facility that upon arrival could have been either a one story hotel or an office complex, except much more appealing, or some sort of business. The building reminded me of trying to look like an actual house with lots of windows and a big open patio leading to the main entrance.
It was the inside I was more impressed with. Decorated like a house with large paintings and comfy couches and chairs, a fireplace, floral arrangements and plants and few sturdy knick-knacks. I really liked how warmly the rooms were painted too, rich browns and earth like tones rather than the standard white walls which remind me of hospitals.
This facility offers assistance to those with Alzheimer's and dementia, which my father in law was recently diagnosed with. Because my father in law is in onset dementia, he doesn't require as much perhaps as somebody else. I liked how this facility only charges for the services you actually need. It's not like some package deal and regardless of your needs, you have to pay that fee.
I loved, absolutely loved the idea of alarmed exit doors! Not that I want my father in law to feel trapped, because the doors are not locked, just alarmed.
Huge dining room! And a private one too if the family decides to come spend a meal with him. Best library! Which is great. My father in law has always been a newspaper and magazine buff and when I browsed through, all the recent magazines were there. Not like some doctors offices where the issues are six months old.
There are private and semi private rooms. My father in law prefers a private room but what I did like about the semi private rooms is the way they are built. Almost like a large ell. So even if you do share a room with someone, you still have your own three walls and the bathroom is centered between. Very wise on this facilities part. People like their privacy.
I loved the outdoor courtyard with all the grass and trees, flower beds in full bloom and the courtyard is enclosed! It seems Clare Bridge thought of everything.
I noticed a lot of staff. Very professional, well groomed and friendly. Every person we passed said hello or smiled and greeted us. I know finding a facility for someone who suffers from dementia or Alzheimer's is a difficult task. It can't be easy caring for somebody with these types of issues.
I know that my father in law is reaching a point of needing more care than my husband or I can give him. We both work full time and live about 50 miles from Sun City West.
Just as we were leaving, I was talking to a woman whose mother had been at this facility for 3 months. I asked her how she liked it and she said she couldn't say enough about how great it was, how great everyone was. She used the word exceptional.
Then she told me that out of about fifteen facilities she had looked at, although very nice, Clare Bridge seemed to have the cutting edge on care. She told me they do a mental workout with each patient every morning and in her opinion, her mom seemed sharper.

Clare Bridge of Sun City West is a wonderful facility with a great care team providing exceptional quality of service. Like their sister facility in Tempe the common area is also set up like residents are hanging out in a town square. It is truly innovative and very mentally stimulating for the residents as they all have some type of memory disorder. The town square set up reminds the residents of things that they once enjoyed doing which helps them connect to certain memories which in turn aids in their therapy. The staff is amazing with the residents, they are so loving and patient. It is easy to see how dedicated they are to caring for each resident and they do so much with the residents. I have seen the staff and residents play games together, read books together, take walks together and so much more. I spoke with a son of one of the residents who told me that one time his dad had been sick with a bad cold for about a week and they staff pooled together and made a really sweet "get well" banner and a gift basket with tissues, bottled water, cough drops, and other things to aid him in getting better. He said that it meant so much to his dad that the staff went out of their way to do that for him. The care team at Clare Bridge of Sun City West is extraordinary and they deserve so much appreciation for all that they do everyday. They love their residents and the residents love them and I strongly recommend that you take a tour of Clare Bridge to experience first hand how truly perfect this facility would be for your loved ones.
