I visited this facility
We took a tour at Arbor Rose. They have five to six different buildings which were really nice. It was a nice and clean place. It was also homey. The people there were friendly and nice. Overall, it was the nicest place I visited.

I like the way Arbor Rose is set up based on my mom's situation. The staff keeps in touch with me on an ongoing basis as we're trying to work through my mom's meds. If something happens, they're pretty good about giving me a call and a heads up. Mom appears to be very well-kept. The staff dresses her up every day. The facility also appears to be clean and doesn't smell. The residents have music, plays, arts, and field trips as activities. It has been a positive experience.
I visited this facility
On more than one visit to Arbor Rose I have been able to freely come and go through outside gates that, according to the signs posted on the latch, were to be locked. Inside the lobby there is a rather oppressive gate separating the front desk from the rest of the community. I have not been given a tour during my visits so I am unable to speak about the care or programming but that gate..... It's demeaning. I can only guess why it's there but surely there are better ways to restrict the residents from the front desk or the front door.

My mother wanted to visit this facility because a friend of hers had shown her a brochure. I don't even like to call it a facility because Arbor Rose is actually country-style homes.
My mother and I toured both the private and semi-private rooms. We both liked the private rooms because it felt more like an apartment or ""place of her own"".
The staff was very friendly, greeted us and one nurse even stood telling jokes with my mom. My mother is a retired nurse and so they got to talking about that.
There is a recreational room which at Arbor Rose is called a Great Room. Tons of seating, big comfortable chairs, a pool table, television, games and books. About 5 residents were occupying the room when we toured but there was still plenty of room for more.
I really liked how right away several of the women sitting in the great room said hello to my mom.
My mother was happy to see that they even had a salon.
The outside was nice too, a lot of full grown trees and flowers.
My mother ended up not staying at this particular home but sometimes she'll still say to me: remember that really nice place we saw in Mesa?
I always know she's talking about Arbor Rose.
