We chose Brookdale Apache Junction. The staff is extremely nice and caring. They were very helpful as I had to get my mom move in very quickly. She likes the place and the food is good. She likes everything about it.

I liked the restaurant meals at Horizon Bay. They had a regular restaurant, and you would go there three times a day, you order and eat what you want. I spent two years with them, and the staff was pretty knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms, the dining area, and the grounds are excellent. The neighborhood was fine and very quiet.

They had activities like therapy and exercise. Once a week, we had a cocktail hour with a few beers and entertainment. They had a lot of good stuff there. It was a great place.

I went to Brookdale Apache Junction, and it is a very good place. We had lunch there, and we looked at the rooms. I like their amenities. It had a nice grand piano and a beautiful fireplace. It had a very nice library and an excellent dining room.

The one that we found was Brookdale Apache Junction. It was for both of my parents, but my dad just recently passed away. The rooms are very nice, very roomy, and just right for one or two people. I have eaten there, and the food was delicious. The dining room is really nice; everything about the place is great. I just love it, and -- most importantly -- my mom loves it. They go on tours, and they have Bingo, exercise, movies, and what they call their Happy Hour on Fridays. They have guests that come and do readings and play music. It is just every day they have something. The people who work there are great, and the facility itself is really open and friendly. To me, the others that we looked at were more like big fancy motels or hotels, and when you walk in, it is really open, and you don't feel like you are walking down a big hall like you would in a hotel and just see rooms here and there. It is just really open, and it is gorgeous.

The place is very well set up, provides three day meals with the time for lunch and dinner any time between 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM. There is a swimming pool, workout room, library, TV room and a meeting center. They will provide transportation if needed, or you can keep your car there. The building has three floors and an elevator.

Brookdale Apache is clean, friendly, very helpful, and informative with great people. My mother-in-law has been there quite a while, and we have gotten to know all the staff; they are really, really good. She has a private room that is spacious, and it has got its own capability for cooking if you want to. She's got a refrigerator, a living room, and her private bedroom. The food is awesome. We have breakfast with her every Sunday, and then we have family get-togethers there quite a bit. I would definitely recommend this place to other people. The nursing staff and everything is great, and the maintenance on this place is immaculate. They have hospice available for in-house, which is great.

I visited this facility

I loved Horizon Bay. But one of the reasons we went with another facility is because it was super expensive. When I visited, Dana, the lady that showed us around was awesome. Every place we looked at, she knew the answer. She was very nice. We saw a model room and then we also saw the room that my father would have got has he gone there.

I thought the apartments were just fine. There's a small kitchen, a small living room, and a fairly good bed and bathroom. When we were there, they were playing bingo. I liked the interior. Everything is really pretty in there. They have a piano, a library, and a fireplace. The hallways, the carpeting, everything was bright. It looked really nice.

I think that this plan to make a place like this is very very good. For a lot of reason. First they do everythink about you and you to be a happy there when you will be.The rooms/apartments are actually pretty cute. Nice, bright kitchens that are open. It's not like you feel squeezed into a little walkway between cupboards, they're rounded out and easy to move around in.

I am a friend or relative of resident

An old co-worker and good friend of my mother moved into this facility. Because Apache Junction is located directly east of Mesa, where I currently live, my mom wanted to visit.

I was a bit on the fence about Horizon Bay for many different reasons.

I didn't totally dislike the building, but it did remind me of a large State hospital, even though it's painted in your typical southern Arizona hue to compliment the landscape, something about it just reminded me of a hospital.

When we first arrived there was a group of about six residents waiting for a van to take them on an outing, possibly shopping or something of that nature. It is anywhere between 105 and 113 degrees right now in southern Arizona and the residents were all sitting in the sun. It seemed to be taking a little while to board everyone. I understand that it takes time to get everyone but I wish they'd offered umbrella's or something.

The inside seemed pleasant. We saw a few staff members and they all smiled and said hello. One young gal asked if we needed help and then showed us how to get to my mom's friends apartment.

Because my mom's friend utilizes the independent living option, she informed us that she is provided with two meals per day, if she eats a third she incurs more charges. Assisted living residents are provided with three meals per day. I guess I can understand that too, but it seemed funny that she specifically pointed this out, as if it weren't quite fair.

I did like the pool. A huge body of water surrounded by block fencing for privacy. I also liked the recreational areas and I especially liked the fact that you can have a one car garage. Not just an average assigned parking space, but a garage. Pretty cool feature.

It seemed quieter than other facilities I've visited, as if a lot of residents just stay in their rooms. This could have to do a lot with the time of year too, as I said earlier, we visited in the early peak of summer.

The rooms/apartments are actually pretty cute. Nice, bright kitchens that are open. It's not like you feel squeezed into a little walkway between cupboards, they're rounded out and easy to move around in.

I liked too that pets are welcome. My mom has owned cats ever since I could remember and would probably be devastated if she couldn't bring ""Baby"" along with her.

They do also offer the Livewell program, which I've read about before. That was a plus.

I suppose all in all the facility in my opinion does deserve at least a 3.5-3.8 on a 5 scale, but little things bugged me, mainly the hospital feel and the quiet. Where were all the residents?

My loved one stayed here

This is a beautiful, hotel-like facility. I think the resident is best served if they are still independent and not requiring help dressing, or going to the bathroom.
