What to Look for in a Retirement Community in Peoria AZ

Are you looking for a retirement community in Peoria, AZ? It can be overwhelming.

Are you looking for a retirement community in Peoria, AZ? It can be overwhelming. How do you even start looking? At the Mission at Agua Fria senior living, we know a thing or two about retirement communities and are here to help you. Here are some things you should look for when choosing a retirement community in Peoria, Arizona.

Look at Levels of Care

Different retirement communities offer different levels of care. The level of care that you need will depend on which stage of life you are in and what your medical needs are. For instance, at the Mission at Agua Fria, we offer both assisted living and memory care services. Our assisted living allows seniors to be as independent as they can safely be, with assistance where they need it. Our memory care is especially for those residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia.

When looking at a retirement community, you must first determine which level of care you need. Even if you do not need memory care assistance right now, you may still want to consider a community that offers both levels of care. Should you need memory care in the future, you’ll already be living in a community that provides it.

Look at Personalized Care

The retirement community should be tailored to you as much as possible. We know that it’s not one size fits all, which is why we offer personalized care. Before residents move in, our licensed nurses complete an assessment, which will determine the needed level of care. This then will allow us to come up with a personal plan for you. You want to make sure the retirement community you are looking at will personalize things to your needs.

Look at Community Features

Your retirement years should be filled with fun activities and socialization. Look into the amenities that are offered by the retirement community. For example, we offer a gym, chapel, beauty salon, solarium, theater, computer center, and game room all on-site for our residents to enjoy. Additionally, lots of cultural and recreational programs and social events happen in our community, and all residents are invited to take part. We even have excursions where residents can get involved outside of the home and with the Peoria community.

Look at Apartment Styles

This retirement community will be your new home, and you want it to feel like one. Check out the types of apartments offered by the retirement community to make sure there’s one that fits your needs. At the Mission, we offer a choice of four different floor plans for one-bedroom apartments in our assisted living community. Some offer kitchenettes, some don’t. Figure out what kind of apartment will make you feel the most comfortable and at home and consider that when you are looking for the perfect community.

The best thing you can do to make sure a retirement community in Peoria, AZ, is for you is to go on a tour and see the community yourself. We encourage you to reach out to us here at the Mission at Agua Fria and schedule your tour.
