What Does Quality Senior Living in Arizona Look Like?
You might be coming around to thinking it would be really nice if someone else helped maintain your house and handle the dinner preparations. In some cases, you might be concerned about the dangers of living on your own. Maybe it’s time to look into senior living options.
And if you’re a senior who’s starting to consider moving to another state to escape cold winter weather (icy sidewalks and shoveling driveways especially), Arizona is the place to be. Not only do we have sunshine 300 days of the year, but we also have excellent Solterra Senior Living locations around the state. Senior living in Arizona has never been sweeter. Here are five points to illustrate what quality senior living in Arizona looks like.
1. Many Different Kinds of Care
Our communities all provide opportunities for you to relax and live the kind of life you’ve always dreamed about. With our well-trained and helpful staff members, you can let go of your worries about chores, maintenance, and meal preparation. But, remember, you can be as independent as you want—you’re the driver.
When you first come to live at a Solterra community, our team will meet with you and your physicians in order to make a personalized care plan that’s customized to your vision of your future and that fits your specific needs. What’s even better is that we can seamlessly transition from independent living to assisted living or memory care. If you aren’t sure whether you’re ready for the big move, but still need assistance after an injury or surgery (or if your usual caretaker needs a vacation), you can also come to visit us for short-term or respite care. It’s a good way to try us out without moving all the way in.
2. Peace of Mind About Money Concerns
If you’ve researched various senior care options, you might have been struck by sticker shock. But quality senior living doesn’t need to be out of reach. Everyone’s situation is different, so we encourage you to contact us so we can help you navigate this very important decision. There are various kinds of aid we might be able to help with.
For one, if you’re a veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran, you may qualify for financial assistance through a program made available by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Aid and Attendance Pension. You may also look into long-term care insurance (if you don’t already have a policy). These insurance policies can help you pay for care and other assisted living expenses if your usual monthly income is too tight.
Lastly, we have Elderlife Financial Solutions access, which is a loan that acts like a line of credit. It’s available to seniors (and non-seniors with disabilities) to help pay for assisted living. If you’re interested in any of these or how it all fits together, you may also contact us and ask to speak with a community benefits advocate to see which avenue is right for you.
3. Stylish, Modern Apartments and Communities with a Resort Feel
Each community has a personality all its own, with the understanding that we built them all with the tenets of style and comfort in mind. For instance, our Chandler location is designed to feel like a sanctuary and is in a serene desert setting, whereas our Tucson location has more of a small-town bustle about it.
No matter which location you decide on, each apartment is spacious and designed with an emphasis on resident comfort, natural lighting, accessible public and private bathrooms, and family-style privacy. Your apartment will be furnished with your own treasures and furniture. We want you to feel completely at home with the items around you. You can also expect restaurant-style dining, beauty salons, common areas such as billiards rooms and libraries, extensive activity programs, chauffeured transportation, and apartments that range from studio to one- and two-bedroom styles. Small pets are welcome as well.
4. Our Mission of Resident-Focused Service Speaks Volumes
Our staff members are highly trained and certified, and they’ll provide a safe and nurturing environment that caters to you and your needs. Every older adult deserves respect and dignity, period. We aim to give it to you in a way that helps foster your individual well-being while following the care plan you help design with your care team.
We recognize the importance of a lifestyle that’s healthy, active, and fun, and we’ll seek to help you incorporate that into your day. And that’s not only true for the medical side of things: it’s our philosophy when it comes to food too. Every day, you can enjoy chef-prepared meals in the dining room in the company of friends or visiting family members. We always enjoy hearing our residents’ suggestions for meals and feedback (and we would be honored if you wanted to share a secret recipe with us!). Have a craving? Let us know.
5. Southwest Culture—Indoors and Outdoors
Whether you enjoy the outdoors or the indoors more, there’s always something interesting to do or see in Arizona. Our locations are peppered around the suburbs of Phoenix. There’s our community in Tucson, and our White Mountains community is further north, between Show Low and Pinetop.
Everywhere you look, there’s a park you can ramble in, a museum to study, a theatre to attend, an art gallery to browse, or a street fair to meander through. We’re happy to organize outings and transport you there as well.
If you enjoy being active in the greater community wherever you live, we can help you find causes or philanthropy or volunteer opportunities if you’re new to the area. If you already have a cause or organization you want to support, we can connect you with local members or chapters. We want you to succeed at whatever you want to succeed at—and we’ll help drive you there.
