Make the Most of Assisted Living in Phoenix AZ

You should spend your golden years living out that golden lifestyle you’ve always envisioned for yourself. For instance, have you ever imagined living in a sunny, carefree locale where you can enjoy soaking up the sun while taking in the breathtaking views surrounding you? Or what about socializing with your neighbors at the weekly farmers’ market down the street?

Whatever your heart’s desire, you’re sure to find it living at our assisted living community located in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. BridgeWater Assisted Living prides itself on bringing you quality of life paired with top-of-the-line care. Here’s what’s in store for you when you decide to make your home here.

Ideal Climate

If you want to spend your retirement years kicking back, relaxing, and basking in the sunlight, then Phoenix, Arizona, is the perfect place for you. In fact, US News & World Report rated Phoenix as one of the best places to live, as well as one of the best places to retire. The ranking was based on a variety of factors, including desirability, value, and quality of life.

The US News article cites many reasons for the high ranking, including the fact that “the Greater Phoenix area sees more sunshine than any other metro area in the country.” In fact, Maricopa County has on average about 300 days of sunshine each year.

Some even tout the health benefits of living in Phoenix, arguing that the warm, arid climate can improve a number of health conditions. After all, vitamin D, which comes from the sun’s rays, can reduce your risk for certain diseases, such as cancer and multiple sclerosis. Research has also shown that vitamin D can improve cognitive function, suggesting that the desert climate is ideal for the mind, body, and spirit.

It’s hardly surprising then that the Arizona Department of Health Services reports the average life expectancy of Arizona residents is higher than the national average. And Maricopa County fares even better, with the average life expectancy just over 80 years of age. Since life expectancy is usually a good indicator of the overall health of a population, where you decide to make your home will likely have an impact on your health outcomes.

Urban Lifestyle

The US News and World Report also notes that, “Phoenix is the best place to get a sampling of all the state has to offer.” One of the reasons Phoenix is a go-to spot for retirees is because it’s an urban oasis, offering everything from art galleries and museums to fine dining and sports stadiums, and everything in-between. You’ll have lots of activities to choose from to help you stay active and busy when you decide to make your home here.

Speaking of an urban oasis, BridgeWater offers its own relaxing escape. If you don’t anticipate leaving our community often, we’ve got you covered with modern amenities guaranteed to keep you entertained. When you stay at our Midtown Phoenix assisted living community, you’ll have access to an on-site movie theatre, library, hair salon, and a bistro coffee lounge. You can even grab your coffee to-go and sip it in our outdoor courtyard.

If you do decide you want to get out and explore the town, we offer transportation to help you get around. We’re located just a short distance from restaurants, shopping, sports, the theatre, churches, healthcare services, and so much more. You have just about everything you need at your fingertips.
