Assisted Living Reviews for Avista Senior Living Historic Downtown Mesa

I visited this facility

After 3 months of visiting assisted living facilities every weekend, my mother and I stumbled upon Vita Bella. Literally. We were in downtown Mesa so I could pick up my daughters violin at a music store when we spotted Mesa's Active Adult Recreation center. Vita Bella is right across the street! We both looked at each other like ""wow, that's weird"" and decided to just walk in and check it out. A full green lawn with a lot of flowers, I'm not good with floral names but those long spindly one's that bloom either bright red or bright yellow. Full bushes and trees, a bench right below a shade tree. Very pretty. Of course the area adds to the charm because it is right next to all the community and cultural stuff of Mesa, art museums, music stores, performing arts. My mom has always been an active participant in her community, regardless of where she lives. She has moved over forty times in her life and always finds the best places to be within days of being a newcomer. The rooms are adorable! Also a nice sized rec room, a pool and spa (both heated) and my mother loved, loved how the dining was all day dining. She even said ""Just because it's 8 a.m. it doesn't mean I'm hungry for breakfast."" If she decided she wasn't hungry until 10 a.m. or even noon, the dining room is open. I, personally liked the free wifi. My mom has four children and nine grandchildren. Most, if not all of us do a lot of our communicating through email. It's important to her to keep her computer and then to be able to access the internet for free is a pretty big deal. Full kitchens, all utilities paid! Except phone, but that's okay. My mom really, really liked the rooms. We both liked as we were touring, several residents asked if she was new. Right away people were interested in who the newbie might be. In their brochure they say: Welcome to a beautiful life. I'd have to agree. Very clean apartments. Cool rec room and activities and even best of all, very close proximity to tons of downtown city-like things to do. The biggest hit: the adult center is right across the street.

This place is conveniently located across from the Mesa Senior Center, that seems to be it's only redeeming quality. They got rid of their activities director some months ago and do not seem to be considering a replacement. Very few of the residents take part in any of the activities. The same goes for the meals that are provided. The hallways are dark and somewhat depressing. The apartments are decent sized, although the studio was quite small, but they usually are. The facility is very near the Mesa Police headquarters and we heard loud sirens almost the entire time that we were there, which was in the middle of the day on a Saturday. My mother talked to a couple of people who live there and was told that it is a very depressing place to live.

A little assistance goes a long way. Avista offers Assisted Living residents a chance to maintain as much of their independence as possible, while accessing help in the areas they need.
