I visited this facility

I visited Clare Bridge of Oro Valley. I was not impressed with it enough that I would have considered having my wife go there. The facility just seemed a little run down.

Do NOT take your loved one here. Despite attempts to get problems fixed they never followed through. Rat, soiled depends left on for hours, and bed sore unnoticed. Horrible place, yet has highest rating for memory care? Scary and sad!

We believe the amount of satisfaction our Alzheimer's and dementia care residents receive from the tasks that fill their days goes a long way to maintaining their sense of purpose and overall satisfaction with life.
