Assisted Living: Independence with a Helping Hand

Assisted living facilities in Tucson are designed to allow their residents to live as independently as possible. Those who move into assisted living are generally able to care for themselves, but require the additional safety of services such as dietary restrictions, disabled access, or conveniences like cleaning services that make life easier. Assisted living facilities can take the form of private facilities that are not associated with a hospital or medical organization, and can also be apartment buildings that create a community through shared meeting spaces and events.

It’s typical for assisted living facilities in Tucson to include memory care living arrangements so that seniors can stay in a familiar environment as they age. A combination of an assisted living and memory care facility means that the friendships made in the community stay within the community. Assisted living facilities in Tucson take all shapes and sizes, and it’s up to you to decide what sounds best for your needs—but don’t worry, we’re here to help you make your decision.

Brookdale East

Residents choose from five different floor plans to find the right fit for their budget and preference. Walking paths and a courtyard garden allow residents to easily and safely explore their community. The staff handles all cleaning duties in and out of the personal living spaces, so Brookdale is a perfect example of what it means to live independently in an assisted living facility. If you think this might be the right option for you or your loved one, contact us to ensure it truly feels like home.

Located in East Tucson on the well-traveled Speedway Boulevard, Brookdale East is in an accessible location while being nestled away from the road.
