I visited this facility

We loved Granite Gate. It was more of an upscale place. The staff was excellent and all very helpful. The rooms were very nice, modern, clean, and spacious. It had one common dining area; I would have preferred two or three dining rooms for variety, but it was nice. The common area was very nice down near the entrance and had a beautiful setting. I thought they were a bit limited in activities.

I went to Granite Gate. The staff was very nice. The program they had was only for the residents. I was looking for an adult daycare and a memory care. They had a fine program, but it was only for the residents. I saw one furnished and one unfurnished room. As I recall, they were pretty large, with safety features everywhere. There was a big patio door, so there was plenty of light coming in. I thought it would be alright, but it was out of my price range. I liked how caring the staff seemed to be.

My mother-in-law is moving in the middle of October into Granite Gate. The person who showed us around did a very good job. We ate there -- we probably were there four or five times during the week just to keep going back and seeing -- and she didn't care, she encouraged us, and they've been very good. We liked the environment there. It seemed that the residents socialize with each other, and there were things for them to do. It didn't seem so institutional.

Granite Gate was very nice. It was well kept up. Their staff was nice. The food was good. They had arts and crafts, music, and exercises. They had a lot to do. The rooms were really nice. It was actually on the fancier side. They made everybody feel good and welcomed. They were very friendly.

My both my parents stayed at the memory care at Granite Gate, and that was an amazing place. The thing that I liked most about it was that the entrance had the living room with a fireplace. They had a cocktail hour there and had newspapers for people who just liked to read and hangout. One of the most remarkable things in terms of staffing was that the person who was manning the entrance desk area was fabulous. She knew everybody's name. She could handle the phone, talk to a client, and answer my question. To me, that was extraordinarily important. The other thing that was interesting in this entrance was that they always had ice-cold water with lemon. Every time I went in there, I had a glass of water.

There was a large activity room for the independent and assisted living. They had a cocktail hour, somebody was singing, and if people want to dance, they could dance. Sometime after an activity or doctor's appointment, I would take my mother in there and sit down because she loved music. For memory care, as long as I was with her, she could be there. I would have a glass of wine, and she would have some food and had some music. For me, it was great that they were flexible.

The director on the unit was super, and the staff was so attentive to her and so terrific. They also had a nurse there that run the medical and all the units of the memory case was one of the most fabulous nurse in the world. She is super and on top of everything. The food was super and was cut-up before it was placed on a plate. So, all you had to do was put your fork in it, poke it, and eat it. They gave two choices of food, or you could have a hamburger or cheeseburger. They would put two protein, a couple of vegetables, and homemade soup with water on the table. My mother really love that. All the food were homemade. They had a baker and a chef in the house, and the snacks were super.

I really like Granite Gate Senior Living for my mom. I like the convenience of the location. I also like the facility and the fact that the assisted living residents are mixed in with the residents. The staff is very friendly. I have had good interactions with the caregivers, and they are very concerned about her wellbeing and what to do to make sure that they are assisting her the best way they can.

We were able to have a visit at Granite Gate Senior Living and that was very nice. The staff were very eager to help and to give information. The rooms were small, but they were okay. They were very clean and very neat. Their dining area was nice and cozy.

We went to Granite Gate. This is the place my mom wants to go when she is finally OK to go in a facility. It was like walking into a resort and not an assisted care facility. The rooms were almost like apartments style living. It is very nice, very comfortable, and very clean. It has its own bathroom and kitchenette. We actually ate lunch there, and the food was phenomenal. The dining room is like walking into a resort. They have many activities. They have activities there on location as well as field trip type activities offsite. It is very well organized. The people that lived there is really what sold our family on it because they were so happy. Their comments were completely unsolicited, and they were all very happy with living there. It was just more like a community.

The staff people of Granite Gate Senior Living were helpful. The rooms were more like the resort type, and the dining room was more upscale. I did not notice anything that would cause me to think that the place was unsecure.

We like Granite Gate Senior Living when we went to the facility. This facility is something worth considering should we need them. I like them because they do have procedures for food services per eating, and they treat it as a restaurant facility. The residents eat at the same time. We had dinner and their food is good. They do have all kinds of activities and different exercise programs. They also have a regular bus service schedule to go shopping. You also don’t have to change your room if you go from assisted living to more intensive care. They would provide the services there.

I liked the location of Granite Gate. It was very close to my work. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and answered all my questions. They told me what they would and wouldn't be able to provide. The rooms were spacious, and the views were great.

Granite Gate was very nice. It's a little more showy. When you walk in, they have a frame that has your name in it that says you're showing up today and welcoming you. The residents there, too, seemed a little more on the snobby side. The staff and everyone were very pleasant and they greeted other people in the hallway. They all seemed very attentive. It's just not what I'm looking for.

Granite Gate Senior Living is an incredible facility. It came recommended by a number of other people who have had parents who were actually in the facility. I visited a couple of others too, but once I saw Granite Gate, it was kind of my standard. It was a beautiful place. It was absolutely gorgeous. The surroundings were nice. This facility sits up on a hill, and it is reasonably wooded. There are a lot of trees, and it is just a very beautiful site. My first impression was that this is the kind of place I would spend a fair amount of time at. With regards to the staff, I was impressed with the support that they were providing their residents. They were very focused, very friendly, and caring. Although they were professional, they were very professional in a very caring way. I had two meals for that day and food was excellent. The dining room was open, spacious, and really nice. It was like an enlarged home feeling. They have a workout facility, a walking path, and a library. They had groups that you could spend time with, and they had exercises classes too. They had everything that I thought I would need. I could also bring all my own stuff too.

Granite Gate was very nice and very gracious. They showed us around and answered all the questions. We visited a year ago. This is the second time we visited, and the food has gone down a little bit. They didn't seem to have as many vegetarian dishes. So that was the problem for my mother. But it's wonderful. The rooms were very nice and bright. They have games. I think they have Bible study once a week, and they take residents to their churches if they want to go. It was just a beautiful place. It didn't seem too much like an institution.

Granite Gate Senior Living looked very nice. The people we dealt with there were professional and courteous. They took time to answer our questions. We were treated well by the sales staff. We were provided the information. We were also able to view the potential rooms. We only looked at a studio room and we found that it was bright, that it was laid out well, and it had all the things we would want if we're going to use the facility. We didn't really have any concerns about it.



Joavon February 17, 2014

I visited this facility

This institution really impressed me. It is set in a beautiful setting, the different areas are decorated well and uplifting and the hostess showed us around very adequately. We asked a couple of the residents about the food and they said it was great. We saw one studio apartment and really liked it. In fact, our relative is going to go there as soon as there is an opening.

My mother is a current resident of Granite Gate and although it was difficult for her to leave her home, she has adjusted to her lovely apartment. My mother was amazed that everyone knew her name, smiled, and offered her assistance whenever she left her apartment. Mother has not been without a family member since our father died, nearly 20 years ago, and now she has new friends and activities to fill her days. My sister and I visit multiple times a week and I have only witnessed patience and caring to the other residents as well as to my mother. Whenever I have had a question or concern the staff at Granite Gate have swiftly addressed them with courtesy. On one occasion my mother had stumbled in her room while I was speaking to her on the phone. She began to cry and I quickly got off of the phone and called the front desk. A care giver was dispatched and I received a phone call from her room with a report that she had only frightened herself. Granite Gate is a beautiful community and well maintained. I don't think of this community as a "placement" for an aging parent; I can truly say it is a wonderful home for my mother.

I recently moved my 87 year old mother to Granite Gate. I found the marketing intake director, executive director and rest of administrative staff including medical and care taking assistance, compassionate, caring, professional and made the move and transition for my family and mother a seamless process. The facility is beautiful (resort located in the Granite Dells with beautiful views and landscape) and very warm for the residents and also for family and friends when visiting. It is such reassurance to know that on a daily basis all of my mother's needs are tended to from her safety, personal needs and medical needs along with caring professional staff.

Making the decision to move a family member into an assisted living facility is not an easy one. I must say that the entire staff at Granite Gate made our decision easy. Our entire experience was wonderful - from the incredible views to the genuine caring attitude of the staff. I would highly recommend this place to anyone considering an assisted living facility in Prescott!



Goodlife July 25, 2013

I am/was a resident of this facility

I recently moved into Granite Gate with my spouse and am VERY happy. I visited several facilities in Prescott on numerous occasions (and interviewed residents in those facilities) from 2008 through the present and after that extensive research determined that Granite Gate best suited our needs.

The facility itself is beautiful and is located in a gorgeous setting. All the apartments are quite spacious, have patios/balconies with gorgeous views, and include kitchens (albeit small).

The staff have been very accommodating, caring, and helpful. The residents I have met are active and involved with activities at the facility and seem quite happy.

Choosing to live in an assisted living facility can be a difficult decision, particularly for those who have been fortunate enough to own their own homes and enjoy complete privacy. Assisted living requires that people interact with others in ways they may not have done in many years, particularly if they have lived alone and without help. These adjustments can be difficult at ANY facility regardless of the number and quality of the staff. Granite Gate makes every effort to assist residents while at the same time respecting their privacy and their individual needs.

Obviously no one rating this pace has spent a enough time visiting the dependent side of Granite Gate. There are not enough caregivers. The residents don't look happy, and there is a lack of compassion and patience with the residents. Too many extremely young and inexperienced caregivers. I am currently looking for a new assisted living facility for my relatives.

This community is set in the lovely Granite Dells near Prescott and has a beautiful setting. The property is a remodeled luxury resort site. The dining room is operated restaurant style and very elegant with great vistas. Rental includes meals and weekly housekeeping. There are also resident laundry areas as well as fitness and exercise areas. Staff are on duty 24 hours a day to help residents. Assisted living services are available. Activities are plentiful and the residents seemed active and involved when I visited.

When I got to the facility I was surprised by its location and beauty. It's mounted in the rocky granite dells of Prescott, Arizona. It is a beautiful place barely away from all the noise and busy parts of the city. It is very clean and kept up nice. I enjoyed seeing how pleased people living there seemed. My sister even said it was a great place to work at because everyone was friendly, caring, and considerate. The people living there seemed pleased and enjoyed living there. It is a place that makes you feel at home. Granite Gate Senior Living is a place someone can call home where you can be helped and feel safe and secure. It is also in a nice location near a beautiful place full of nature. I would definitely recommend Granite Gate Senior Living to anyone near the area that is considering assisted living.

This was literally like walking into a fine resort! Absolutely breathtaking views of the mountains and an absolutely huge walk-in area.

My favorites, if I can try to limit them, were the library, larger than any other facilities I'd seen thus far. Two gentlemen were both in the library, a table apart, deep in reading.

I felt that many of the residents here were still very active and preferred more fitness and recreational things than just sitting and watching television. In fact, when my mother and I toured Granite Gate, I never spotted anyone watching t.v., though I did notice residents using computers.

While there, a social gathering was just beginning. I'm not sure if it was bingo or bridge but about 15 women were together and their laughter was uproarious.

My mom really liked the idea that if all of her daughters (there are 3 of us) and all of our kids came to have dinner with her, they offer a private dining room.

We definitely felt like it was more resort-type living. I noticed staff members throughout the tour, laundry service people and most seemed friendly, although busy with work.

Another thing I noticed, as my mother and I were leaving and heading back to my car in the parking lot, residents were using their balconies. I remember looking up at one and a gentleman waved.

I try not to go into a facility with any expectations, but this particular place actually blew my expectations away.

Very well kept, clean and elegant. Friendly staff and residents actually using the amenities offered to them.
