Phoenix, Arizona is a popular retirement destination with plentiful golf courses, desert scenery, and country clubs. As retired or working seniors age, they require a little extra help. Depending on their needs, they might require some assistance with the groceries, cleaning, or they might need to move into more accessible and safe accommodations. The Phoenix metropolitan area has a wide area and ample population, with a great selection of choices. Yet every situation is unique, and even the most highly reviewed facility might not meet your specific needs.

Phoenix assisted living facilities typically offer a spectrum of services in order to cater to the many needs of their community and residents. Some offer near independence, designed to ease the transition into golden years. Similar to nursing homes, many often offer medical services, but have daily or weekly nurse visits, and are not designed for 24/7 care of each patient. Some assisted living facilities will also offer dementia or Alzheimer’s care, with separate wards for these residents. Depending on your or your loved one’s current or anticipated needs, it’s important to consider the full portfolio of services that your choice of residence offers.

Types of Medical Care Facilities in Phoenix, Arizona

As discussed above, there are many different medical care facilities to choose from, and each offers an array of services. Generally speaking, medical care facilities can be separated into several different broad categories. Assisted living facilities are designed for people with disabilities or those who cannot live independently for any number of reasons. Nursing homes generally offer full-time care for residents, and is an ideal solution for those who do not need to be hospitalized but require more care than is available at home or those who need more help than is available at an assisted living facility. Nursing homes are generally designed for rehabilitative care, as most long term living facilities are classified as assisted living, with a variety of services designed to make residents feel at home. Memory care facilities offer dementia and Alzheimer’s care and may specialize in one or the other. Memory care facilities can be standalone facilities only accepting patients in need of memory care, or they may be specialized sections of assisted living or nursing homes which allows their residents to mingle.

Since assisted living, nursing, and memory care facilities offer services that overlap in some ways, it can be difficult to make your decision based on current needs, while also considering needs that you may have in the future.
