I am/was a resident of this facility

I am presently staying in a one-bedroom apartment here in The Stratford with a little kitchenette area. Their food and dining room are great. The staff is wonderful and I have no problems with them at all. I am impressed with their care of the residents who needed help. They had all kinds of activities for whoever likes them. They have tours and shopping. They also have massages. I am very satisfied and happy here.

A close family friend moved into the facility the Stratford in the winter of 2010. The Stratford is located in the great area of Phoenix, Arizona. What I liked best on the many visits to the facility is that it is clean, beautiful, well maintained and so much more. The rooms are spacious and up to date. It is great that seniors can live in this place and be surrounded by other people their age but as well they have staff available if they ever need any help. They offer all day dining of delicious food for all their residents and if visitors come they can eat with them. The food was great on the different occasions that I had it, and our friend always says that it is wonderful. They do a lot of great outings and bring a lot of stuff to the facility. The residents don't have the opportunity to be bored if they don't want to be. The staff is highly qualified, the location is perfect if they want to leave there is a lot to do outside of things at the facility. The other thing the many of the residents that are not from Arizona like is that it never gets to cold, which is great for a lot of them.

The staff was knowledgeable and caring. The facility was rather dated but it was well maintained and you could feel that the staff genuinely cared about the facility and its patients. The yard was very nice and well kept with plenty of places to sit around and visit. There is a nice play area for children and a pool. The location is excellent and very close to my residence. Other family members have stated that they wish to be sent there when they are elderly.

This is a medium sized resort style assisted facility.The buildings are gorgeous with Victorian style decor. The buildings and grounds are well maintained.

There are studio and one and two bedrooms with partial kitchens. All units are handicapped equipped and have an emergency call system. They have a 4 building memory care unit and the community is dived into neighborhoods.

The interior is beautiful decor with a Victorian style dining room. They do three meals and snacks a day restaurant style.the food is very good.They have sitting areas, billards room, card room, game room, fitness room, library, theater, ice cream parlor, a snack shop, and barber/beauty parlor.

They offer housekeeping and linen/laundry service.

Stratford is a beautiful professionally ran memory care facility. I would recommend it to specific group of people. 

When I was there in 2010 I noticed that the staff consisted of many healthcare professionals who were very friendly.

Out of five stars, I would rank the grounds a five, the common areas a five the residents' rooms a three, the staff a five and the quality of care a four. 

The grounds are always well kept, the common ares of The Stratford is so nice and beautiful. Has a very inviting luxury feel to it. The residents rooms are very nice as well no complaints at all. The staff speaks for itself. The Stratford exceeds Arizona's standards of expertise.

Overall, I'd give The Stratford a rating of five stars because because of their ratings with the Arizona Department of Health Services and their professionalism.

I have two uncles that are are both residents at this facility. They both have different needs,. and are each in different areas of the facility. They are so well taken care of here, it is awesome! I never have to worry. They are both very happy living here. The food is excellent, they have a private own chef!

The surroundings are beautiful and clean. Each and every worker at the facility does their job, and they are not under-staffed. They care about each resident not just there care plans but there feelings as well.

The surroundings are beautifully decorated and well kept. I recommend this facility to everyone and there loved ones, you will not be disappointed!
