What Can I Expect Living at BridgeWater Apartments in Phoenix AZ?

Considering the high cost of some senior living communities these days, it makes sense that you might be worried about your living conditions when it’s time to move to a retirement home. The good news is that BridgeWater Assisted Living communities are designed to address the underserved fixed-income senior population.

Whether you’re looking for senior living options for a loved one now or starting your research for yourself, we aim to help in any way we can. Here are three things you can expect when living at a BridgeWater Apartments in Phoenix, Arizona.

Great Locations

Our Midtown Phoenix campus is a gorgeous seven-story community located in downtown Phoenix. Apartments and common areas are modern and stylish, and you’ll see local art added as little touches everywhere. This campus is designed so guests can explore—residents will find the light rail, restaurants, shopping, sports, museums, theatres, churches, healthcare services, and more nearby. This location provides both assisted living and memory care apartments.

At Deer Valley, we’re proud of our cutting-edge technology and our upscale decor. Within this location, visit the community dining room for chef-prepared meals three times a day or the bistro coffee lounge for a snack and a cuppa joe. Residents can complete their errands inside at the beauty salon, business center, wellness center, and the library, and then enjoy a beautiful outdoor courtyard. Take in a movie at the in-house movie theatre, a drink at the Happy Hour Bar, and if you have any questions or need help, the front desk concierge is always available.

Avondale, our newest community, provides independent and assisted living, as well as a specialized memory care neighborhood. This campus has a resort-style aesthetic with a small-town feel. Nearby, residents can find shopping and restaurants, as well as outdoor activities including world-class golf courses. Is there a NASCAR fan in the family? Find the Phoenix International Raceway close by. Residents and families can also stroll through the Estrella Mountain Regional Park Nature Center nearby.

Affordability for Seniors

Our mission at BridgeWater Assisted Living is to provide an income-qualified housing option that feels good to live in and hosts state-of-the-art technology. We’re determined to help our residents live the way they want to—with as much or as little engagement as they desire. Because everyone deserves a great retirement, period. With our tax credit funding, we have the flexibility of providing financial aid to income-qualified residents.

If you or your loved one has reached out to other assisted living centers before and been discouraged by the high price either of care costs or amenities, contact us at BridgeWater so we can show you how we can help. If your income is less than $2,420 per month, and if you need daily assistance in your living, you’ll likely qualify for income-qualified opportunities. You’ll feel like you’re receiving the quality care you deserve without overspending your income.

Are you or your loved one a veteran? Thank you for your service, and it’s our honor to serve you in return! You may use your VA pension benefits to pay for assisted living expenses. If you’re unsure about what’s owed to you or how to start the process, we can help. Connect with our Community Benefits Advocate by calling 602-281-9535 for further resources if you have questions, and you may also contact the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs website or call them at 1-800-827-1000.

Remember, whichever resource you contact, make sure they are VA-accredited representatives and to be cautious of potential scams. Beware of representatives who misrepresent your situation, who charge you fees for filing the free application, or who want to move your assets. Better to be safe and check whether they’re accredited first.

Support for Our Residents

At all BridgeWater communities, we seek to keep our residents healthy and as active as they can be. We have many great medical programs designed to maintain your health and prevent avoidable high-cost care, such as ER visits and hospitalizations.

One of these programs is our high-tech health management system. Using this information, our residents can live a higher quality of life and luxuriate in their greater independence. This nurse-call technology uses in-home sensors and predictive analytics, such as monitoring sleeping patterns and toileting. These sensors gather key data points to detect changes in daily activities and habits that could indicate potential health issues. Nurses provide daily Health Notes, which details these insights, and the nurses then alert the care staff to assess each situation and respond accordingly.

One exclusive system BridgeWater communities utilize is Equilibrium Memory Care. This program is especially for those residents who might have experienced some cognitive decline. Through the arts, mindfulness, and cognitive therapy, we help keep minds entertained and intrigued. Residents and their families receive real-time feedback on how these activities are maintaining and supporting their positive health and wellness, mentally and physically.

Need a little workout? Need a place to meet with a physical therapist? We have well-equipped on-site wellness and therapy centers, available for use when you or your loved one needs it. Residents may invite their physical therapist, occupational therapist, or speech therapist for visits in these centers or in the comfort of their own apartments. Residents can relax and focus on getting better without the stress of going out if they don’t feel like it. However, we can also provide transportation if you would prefer to go to the therapist’s office instead.
