4 Benefits of Moving to Assisted Living Apartments in Phoenix

Phoenix is a great place to retire! Not only is the weather warmer than in more northern states, but there is always something fun to do or something amazing to see in the city. 

Here are four benefits of moving to assisted living apartments in Phoenix, Arizona:

1. Transportation

Arizona has lovely weather year-round. Whether you love being out in the sun on the patio or enjoying it through a window, you can admire the desert with a beauty all its own. BridgeWater residents go on all kinds of day trips and adventures to see local landscapes and events. We can also get you to doctor’s appointments, take you to the store, or give you a ride to your favorite restaurant. When you move to assisted living, you can let us do the driving.

2. Your Social Calendar

Seniors experience feelings of isolation more often than other demographics, and this contributes to feelings of depression, anxiety, and to physical ailments such as high blood pressure and difficulty sleeping. The National Institute on Aging reports that people who have been recently isolated due to the death of a partner, separation from friends or family, retirement, lack of mobility, and lack of transportation are at particular risk.

Humans are social creatures and even if you’re an introvert, it’s good to have some human contact within easy reach. Living in an assisted living community means you will always have someone to spend time with, and you also have your own apartment home to retreat to when you’re ready for some quiet time.

3. Fabulous Amenities

Each of our communities is a little different, but they all have one thing in common: excellent amenities available for your use. A great example is our onsite wellness and therapy centers, which you can use on your own or with your own physical therapist or trainer.

Food is an important aspect we focus on. All of our meals in our restaurant-style dining room are chef-prepared and created to be as delicious and nutritious as possible. Not only will you feed your body, you’ll also nourish your soul. If there’s a recipe you’d like to share with us, we’d love to try it out! We also host a variety of food events as well, so your taste buds will never get bored.

4. Affordable Living

One of the greatest benefits of assisted living in BridgeWater communities is that we have found a way to make senior living affordable and enjoyable. BridgeWater communities offer income-qualified financial aid opportunities. Our rule of thumb is that if you make less than about $3,000 a month, you likely qualify. You can also chat with any of our Community Benefit Advocates, who can help you navigate these waters. If you’re a veteran, you can use your pension for assisted living as well. Best of all, we don’t charge community fees or apartment deposits, only a reasonable application fee.If retiring in Phoenix is on your bucket list, contact us today to schedule a tour!
