Independent Living Reviews for Tuscany at McCormick Ranch

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

I think we have visited every senior retirement community in the Phoenix area over the last 8 months. Some have been good some not so good. My parents are 84 and 86 and cannot commit to leaving their home of 38 years. We have been to Tuscany at McCormick Ranch 3 or 4 times and they both like it the most of any of the places we have gone to consider. On our last visit, they have a new Director and also a new Chef. The Director was very welcoming and took time to talk with us on what was a very busy day. We had been there prior without this kind of time given to us so it was a nice change. We were there on this visit for the Sunday brunch and again to try to get my parents to commit to moving. We asked to be seated with people who already lived there so my mom and dad could hear how they felt about living there as a resident rather than from a salespersons view. They were very happy to listen to the raves from the residents. Back to the brunch. My oh my incredible, delicious, fresh, and more to pick from than I can remember. We were told these brunches are every month and this was how they all are. We enjoyed the company of everyone we met. Mom and dad are closer but not there yet. Soon we hope they are at Tuscany at McCormick Ranch.

Provider Response

We've pass along your compliments to Tuscany's Executive Director and Executive Chef. We so glad you enjoy our brunch service.

The Tuscany (Tuscany at McCormick Ranch) was a bit out of my financial reach. It was in a heavy traffic there, which I didn’t care for. They had very little storage or closet space. The grounds were very nice. The patios were very small. The community was well-kept; it was very well appointed.

Tuscany at McCormick Ranch is a very nice place, but their price is too expensive for us. We looked at the villas, and we liked it.

Tuscany at McCormick Ranch was very accommodating. We were interested in a certain-size apartment or villa, and they don't have anything with two-bedroom with a den. We just had salad there, and it was very good. They routinely had entertainment. Somebody comes in and plays piano or sometimes they have a trio.

My mum and I first visited Tuscany at McCormick Ranch 8 years ago when we were in the early stages of looking for a suitable residence for her ... it always stayed uppermost in our minds as the perfect place for her to call home. When she finally decided she was ready to make the move to independent retirement living last year (with all of the great perks), the first place we went to was Tuscany! She went on the waiting list in order to get just the right apartment and it was worth the year's wait. She is thrilled -- as am I. Not only does she love her apartment, but she and I got to know the community in the time we had been waiting, as we made many trips there to attend events and just visit to see what was going on during that time. The staff are always incredibly friendly, genuinely interested and amazingly helpful! Cathy has been an absolute angel ... we love her and cannot say enough wonderful things about her!! She is the best representative for any retirement community we have ever visited (and we visited many over the years). After seeing over a dozen places for Mum, Tuscany is by far the tops. Now that she has been living there for a month, she has been treated so well, I feel very relieved that she is in great hands and has many of her needs attended to so I can rest easy knowing she is safe and happy. She has made nice friends and there are always fun and interesting activities. We cannot recommend Tuscany at McCormick Ranch high enough. You will not be disappointed. From the moment you walk in and are warmly welcomed, to the fine dining experience, the rich decorations, beautiful grounds, cozy small family feel, and all else, there is everything to love!

I work for a home and facility modification company and I was out to Tuscany for a networking event. Staff were beyond helpful and very welcoming. I could not believe how beautiful Tuscany is, wonderful place. We had lunch catered to us for the event and it was delicious! Fresh, organic, and full of flavor. After the meeting I took a tour of one of the Villas. Being in the industry I am in I always keep my eye open on accessibility. For an independent living facility they did a good job at making the apartments and villas accessible for the senior population. The areas were nice and spacious so someone in a walker or rollator could get around. The bathrooms were accessible too. And if residents needed any modifications and adaptive equipment to help them live more independently the staff seemed very accommodating to that. I would definitely recommend this place. Hospitality was wonderful. I hope to return to be more of a resource for the staff and residents.

Tuscany is Grand. Our Maintenance Department works hard to keep it so. They also have to keep us comfortable and happy. Our Social Director is wonderful. We go to special lunches and teas, games and plays that are in town that may interest us. We have Bridge, Bingo and poker to keep us busy. Our yoga instructor has been here 3 years and keeps us moving. I know all this because I am lucky to have been here for 7 1/2 years and I love it all!!

I usually try to visit Tuscany at least once per month to check and see if the residents have everything they need/want as far as the amenities, services, activities, etc. that the facility currently offers them. I usually get a whole bunch of feedback, more negative than positive, from most residents in most facilities, just because there is usually something else they want to see as far as amenities and such. However, at Tuscany, the residents as a whole seem to be completely satisfied with all that the facility offers. I can say just from spending time in the facility, that the residents here are collectively some of the most active and adventurous residents I have seen in a facility. Tuscany caters to Independent Living residents, so they residents are generally in good health, energetic, and love maintaining busy and very active lifestyles. I have personally participated in a couple of activities there, and let me tell you, I actually had to put forth some effort to meet the pace of the residents, they are so energetic! It also seems like most of the scheduled activities warrant movement and energy, which I think is great. It keeps the residents on their toes and full of life. Don't get me wrong, there are many activities that aren't physically demanding, such as arts & crafts, movies, special interest resident clubs, and so on. It helps create a balance and ensures the residents that it is okay to kick back and take it easy for a day! The facility is beautiful, it has a rich-looking, European design to it and it is always tidy and organized. I always enjoy walking around looking at all the knick-knacks and artwork throughout the facility, they have some really interesting-looking items throughout the facility. The residents seem very proud of their facility, they love when some new visitor comes around so they can show the place off. The grounds are perfectly landscaped, it is really beautiful outside and there are many shaded areas for the residents to take a break from the hot Arizona sun. The best thing, I think about the facility and it's grounds is that it is located on a famous Scottsdale greenbelt called Camelback Walk. The residents really like exploring the paths and they often go on group walks. Camelback Walk is surrounded by lakes, parks, golf courses, etc. It is a really peaceful path to walk and it is very simple for the residents to navigate so they can easily find their way home. I think that Tuscany at McCormick Ranch is the type of facility where anything that happens behind closed doors stays there. Every facility has issues, I have never seen a facility that hasn't had it's share of conflicts and complaints. I have visited this facility for over 2 years now and I have tried to get the residents to open up to me, I have watched the staff work, I have looked for issues that concerned me, and I have come up completely empty-handed. Now, most people would think that this is a great thing, searching so hard and not being able to find one issue - but to me, it makes me nervous. No facility is that perfect. So either they really are that great or they are just really good at hiding their flaws. Either way, I have not seen anything that has yet caused me any great concern, so I am fairly confident that Tuscany at McCormick Ranch may be the place to call home. I encourage you and your loved ones to take time to visit this community, make a day of it as there is so much to see and experience.
