I am a friend or relative of a resident

The facilities were immaculate. They were well designed, decorated with the latest beautiful decor -- obviously done by very qualified interior designers. The amenities that impressed me the most were the dining portion of the facilities and the care they took in keeping the residents active and involved with everything and everyone in the facility. The staff seemed qualified and caring. The place had a very good "feel" when you first went in. That carried throughout the facility with both staff and architecture and furnishings. I was impressed by the variety of housing that was available -- from independent areas with total freedom, such as places to park your own vehicle at your "apartment," to more assisted buildings that provided different degrees of "care" needed, to a total care area for patients with Alzheimer's and debilitating disorders that provide one-on-one care 24/7. I would say that if I ever needed a facility for myself, this one would be highly desirable. On the negative side, the location of the facilities was not ideal. It would not be close enough to amenities I would use when living at an independent living facility. It is a fair drive to the "heartbeat" of Phoenix, where the culture (theaters, museums, restaurants, sports) exist. However, this would not be an issue for the assisted living portion. The cost was also a shock. Not everyone would be able to afford this facility, so it would incorporate a less diverse type of residents.
