Are you looking for quality assisted living or memory care in Peoria, Arizona? Look no further than the Mission at Agua Fria. We pride ourselves on being exceptional retirement living, but that’s not all—we do it with compassion. There’s nothing more important than guaranteeing your loved one is living somewhere they receive skilled care, but quality care is more than just making sure needs are met. Our residents come first in our eyes, and we do everything to make them feel safe, comfortable, and at home.

Our community offers 32 assisted living and 58 memory care private and semi-private apartments for residents to live in. At the Mission at Agua Fria, we ensure all of our residents receive compassionate and comprehensive assisted living and memory care services. Here’s just a glimpse at the quality care your family member will receive as a resident of the Mission at Agua Fria.

Assisted Living Features

We want our residents to keep as much of their independence as they safely can. So if you choose assisted living, we’re here to help you maintain the lifestyle you’ve been living. We want you to continue to have your independence and to be as active as you’ve always been. We’ll just provide help where you need it. Our healthcare professionals make sure residents age safely in place with the amount of care they need.

Additionally, assisted living provides a sense of community, as it offers socialization, educational opportunities, and nutritious meals. There are cultural and recreational programs, social events, and excursions that we plan and coordinate for our residents.

Assisted living is a wonderful option for aging adults, especially those who are no longer able to or want to live at home alone. The staff members at the Mission at Agua Fria make sure residents live in a safe environment with independence and respect.

Memory Care Features

We are proud to have a specialized memory care community to properly care for those residents who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Our staff is not only licensed and certified, but they’re caring and specially trained, ensuring your family member is supported and cared for as they should be.

We also offer programs for our memory care residents that contribute to their overall wellbeing—from art and sensory integration to music and pet therapy to a first-class exercise program. Our program is quite revolutionary, as we provide care that emphasizes the entire person: body, mind, and soul, based on an approach called Gentlecare developed by Moyra Jones.

Our memory care community is featured on the ground floor and consists of two connected neighborhoods. Each one has two activity rooms off of a lobby, an open lounge, a dining room, and a nurse’s station. The two neighborhoods share a central gathering room that leads out into an enclosed outdoor courtyard that residents can safely enjoy. Our neighborhoods also encourage interactions amongst the residents of our community.

A professionally trained director is in charge of our memory care programs. Not only does this director coordinate with the nursing department, but they also keep each family informed of their loved one’s progress. The family will have access to the staff’s knowledge of their family member’s condition and care plan.

Features of Both

Whether part of our assisted living or memory care community, your family member receives personalized care. Before entering into either type of care, a licensed nurse completes an assessment to evaluate each resident’s needs and come up with an appropriate personal care plan. Additionally, we learn more about your family history, any specific care needs, and interests and preferences to make sure that your loved one feels right at home here.

In our memory care unit specifically, we understand that dementia and Alzheimer’s affect the entire family. Because of this, we want to make sure your family is comfortable with your loved one’s personalized care and that we’re all on the same page.

Both assisted living and memory care residents experience restaurant-style dining that features three nutritious chef-prepared meals served daily. Our care staff is available 24 hours a day, and all residents receive assistance with daily tasks they can no longer perform alone. These might include help with dressing, continence, mobility, bathing, or meal or activity assistance. Our staff is here to make sure your family member gets to enjoy all those things to the best of their ability (and remains healthy while doing so).

Modern and Accessible Apartments

All of our apartments have a bathroom with plenty of room, a shower that has grab bars and the ability to walk or wheel in, and an emergency response cord. There’s also ample closet space. All apartments are safe and secure. In our assisted living community, there’s a choice of private one-bedroom apartments that have four different floorplans. In our memory care community, there is a choice of private or semi-private studio apartments.

Finding an assisted living or memory care community for your family member may be one of the hardest decisions for you to make. It’s important to choose a quality home that understands the needs of your loved one but also of your family. It’s also important to make sure you choose a place that you and your family are comfortable with. You want to make sure that your family member can still have their independence with the support they need. If memory care is needed, you want to make sure they’re in a safe environment that provides personalized care.
