Reviews of Extended Family Home
July 27, 2011
All the rooms here are private. It's a smaller facility, but they do have two buildings "“ one for assisted living and one for Alzheimer's care residents. They have laundry facilities and home cooking. Everyone gets Internet, cable, TV, and a private phone provided. The apartments all have kitchens. The rooms are nice and clean, but it's an older facility, so it's not really fancy. It's more simple. The room sizes range from 300-550 square feet, depending on the number of rooms in the apartment. It has nice grounds with flowers and greenery, and it's well kept up. They have a dining room and a rec room inside. I don't think they have a dedicated exercise room, but they have some equipment for doing physical therapy. They also have a TV room. They have donated books available for the residents. These people don't eat on a schedule. If they get up in the morning at 6, they can eat right then. The food is specifically cooked for each resident, either in their own room or at the dining room. The staff are really nice. They're all well-trained. They have a physical therapist that comes in. They hire out their transportation. They have a hospice nurse that comes in too. They have the normal activities "“ bingo and cards. Sometimes the facility will take the residents out to various places, like out to movies or to restaurants, but it's not as common as at some other bigger facilities. Most of their activities are in-house.

I visited this facility
My mother and I were on a major rampage to visit and decide upon an assisted living facility for her. She's 70 years young, still active, a retired nurse who still is interested in earning her own way. Over the course of many months we visited just about every assisted living facility in Mesa, Arizona and beyond. We then moved on to assisted living homes, just to see for ourselves if there would be a difference in quality. One of the first places we visited was Extended Family. Literally nestled in the heartland of Mesa, Arizona, a set of beautiful homes! You'd think as a passing stranger that these were residential houses. Nothing out of the ordinary. Gorgeous, well kept lawns, patio's, flowers. We happened to visit the location at 2256 E. Hermosa, as there is an extended/dementia care home down the road. A gorgeous home with physicians on staff! I know I give that sentence an exclamation point but am I not right? At what facility do you have a personal physician? Not many. Although, registered nurses rank higher than high in my book. My mom is a retired registered nurse and has run the gamut with her services and abilities, including respite, burn units, psychiatric, prenatal, E.R., and even used to be one of those people who rode on helicopters to outlining villages in Alaska to provide care. An active woman with a lot of demands. Extended Family was superior in providing an outlet for her. Everything seemed so accessible from the room to the bathing to the courtyard to the patio to the staff. I don't think I've ever given a facility a five star rating. To this one, my first, I did.
