Assisted Living Tidbits
We often receive interesting questions and feedback from people visiting our site and facility listings, and at times we like to post them for people to read (names removed..of course). This is a good way for people to learn about some of the complexities around assisted living and senior care. The following question is interesting in that it has to do with someone who is younger than "senior age.":
Q: I'm looking for an assisted-living situation for my 50 year-old brother who is mentally challenged and on disability. He has a learning disability and cannot handle his own affairs living on his own so I'm hoping to find an environment that he may be able to live in that would give him peace and community involvement. He does not need any physical assistance. He's currently living with my parents but they are elderly and unable to continue to oversee and assist him. Do you know of any place in Phoenix that might suit his needs if you feel your property wouldn't be a good fit?
Q: What are your rates and are you contracted with ALTCS?

Q: I live out of state but have an uncle (age 93) and a cousin (age 64) in the Phoenix area. My cousin drinks heavily most days. Would you be able to accommodate him? He is not a mean drinker but is very friendly and pretty much keeps to himself. Also, would you have accommodations that would handle them together or nearby?
Q: What are your rates for an 81 year old man on oxygen
24/7. He can bathe himself and
dress. He needs meals prepared, laundry and house keeping
