Luxury Retirement Homes in Phoenix

Luxury Senior Living in Phoenix

Arizona has been a popular retirement destination for as long as there have been seniors who are tired of long, harsh Northern winters. Over the years, Phoenix and its upscale suburbs have catered to retirees who want not only mild winters and lots of sunshine but also upscale homes and resort-like services to make the most of the post-career years. All across the Phoenix metro area, from wealthy enclaves like Scottsdale in the north to the planned country club community of Sun Lakes to the south, there are many luxury senior living options to explore in Phoenix.

Innovative memory care options near South Mountain

Mountain Park Senior Living, in the city’s Ahwatukee neighborhood in the South Mountain foothills, offers continuity of care with a twist. Mountain Park’s Residence Club offers “transitional memory care” for seniors who live with mild cognitive impairments but don’t need the heavy-duty supervised care offered by traditional dementia-care programs.

The small-group program lets qualified seniors stay in their own assisted living apartments while taking part in daily physical, cognitive, and sensory therapies that are designed to be social and fun. Residence Club staff members share updates with family members each week, and group lunches and dinners offer extra time to connect with neighbors and friends.

Mountain Park’s other perks include a proudly pet-friendly policy. Residents are encouraged to bring along their dog, cat, fish, or bird to become part of the community. Pet-therapy volunteers come by regularly to spend time with residents, and family members and friends are welcome to bring their companion animals along when they visit. And the on-site concierge can arrange for pet care when you’re busy—along with a slew of other services from floral deliveries to party planning and tee time reservations.

Resort-style living and lots of golf in Sun Lakes

Twenty minutes south of the city, the planned Sun Lakes community offers lots of golf courses, restaurants, and spas. Renaissance Luxury Senior Apartments residents can enjoy Sun Lake amenities in addition to Renaissance’s onsite dining rooms, pub, and ice cream parlor; chauffeur service; and workout, salon, and arts and crafts facilities.

Renaissance offers independent and assisted living apartments that are designed for ease of use and have full kitchens and laundry areas. A swimming pool, courtyard gardens, and shaded outdoor seating make it easy to enjoy the outdoors.

Everything from skydiving to skilled nursing in Scottsdale

“The West’s Most Western Town” is also one of its wealthiest and most ready to party. Scottsdale is renowned for luxurious resorts and spas, golf courses, and booming dining and nightlife scene. Retirees who want to soak up the Scottsdale lifestyle have options including Westminster Village, where residents can take part in the community skydiving club and go on hot-air balloon ride field trips, among many other options.

Westminster’s levels of care span all the options from independent living to memory care and skilled nursing. Home health aides are available to assist residents in their homes, and the on-site wellness center mini-clinic provides flu vaccines, vital sign checks, and other outpatient care.
