Find the Best Place to Live in Arizona for Seniors

Are you looking for the best place to live in Arizona for seniors? The search can feel overwhelming. There is a lot of research to do, a lot of logistical things to figure out, and a lot of emotions that can be involved.

We understand all of this at BridgeWater Assisted Living, and that’s why we want to make things easier for you and your loved ones. Here are some tips to help you find the best place in Arizona for seniors to live.

1. Pay Attention to the Location

You already nailed down that you want to be in the state of Arizona which we must say is a great decision. But Arizona is a big state. It’s important to pay attention to the specific location of the assisted living community you are considering. Do you want a more urban feel or a more rural feel? Or do you want a mix of both, a quiet atmosphere with easy access to the city? Figure out which one you want and look at communities that have that location. Additionally, figure out a location that you not only like but also one that is convenient for family and friends to come to visit you. The easier it is for them to get to, the more likely they are to visit more often, and this is important for the senior loved one.

2. Look at What Amenities Are Offered

Finding a place to live is much more than simply finding a place to rest your head, you want a place that feels like home in all aspects. You are essentially moving into a new community, and it should have all the amenities you need. For instance, at BridgeWater Assisted Living, we offer a wide array of amenities. These include an on-site wellness and therapy center, a community dining center, happy hour, special holiday meals, daily activities and events, and cutting-edge CarePredict technology that monitors residents’ health while giving them more independence and a higher quality of life.

3. Check Out the Costs

It’s no secret that senior living is expensive. This is why it’s important to know exactly the cost of the assisted living community you are looking into before you sign any agreements. Additionally, you want to see if there are any financial solutions offered by the community that you can take advantage of, such as income-qualified opportunities, as offered at BridgeWater. Furthermore, many communities take external financial help, such as Medicaid/ALCTS, veteran’s aid, or a bridge loan.

As you can see, finding the best place to live in Arizona for seniors may be easier than you originally thought. Be sure to use the three above tips to help you with your search. In addition to these, it’s highly recommended that you go on a tour of any community you are looking into before committing. This will not only let you see things firsthand, but you will be able to meet with people and ask questions personally.
