Assisted Living Tidbits

I grew up in Arizona, and often times our family would take weekend trips to the Phoenix area. My dad's job required him to go to Sun City, and Sun City West occasionally. As a kid, driving through this area, I thought I was in another world. The buildings were all beautiful, the grass and lawns were all very uniformly manicured and well-kept. There were no schools, no malls to speak o, and most noticeably, there were absolutely no kids!

I eventually grew to understand this strangeness, realizing that Sun City was built specifically for seniors. It's not that it is against the law for children to live there, but it would be pretty difficult for them. I think the only kids you'll run across in Sun City West will be grand kids visiting grandma and grandpa.

Make no mistake, Sun City West is an amazing creation. The sheer amount of services geared towards seniors is really quite something. There are excellent medical centers within the city limits and close proximity, with specialties in senior issues, as well as more golf courses than you would probably want to count. Take a look at a google map of Sun City West, and it seems that there are as many golf holes as there are major city streets. Sun City West also has a unique, uniform pattern to it's street architecture - almost a semicircle - which you can also see on a google map.

Although there are many individual homes in Sun City West where active seniors may choose to live, there are also several excellent assisted living and Alzheimer's facilities in Sun City West, for seniors who need the extra help with managing the activities and tasks of day-to-day living.

Interesting questions and comments that we have received about Sun City senior care and assisted living:

What are your rates for someone needing your highest level of care? My mom suffers from dementia and needs transfer help as well as all aspects of daily living.

We are looking at the Tempe area to get her into a better climate. What are your rates for your assisted living care, and it is all-inclusive, or based on services provided?

Q: My mother is currently in an assisted living facility and resides at Thunderbird Retirement Resort in Glendale AZ. My sisters and I are searching for a new facility that will take medicaid since her funds are running low. TRR does not accept Medicaid. - Mary

Q: Trying to find out what the average costs is for a small residential care facility for my mom with dementia. We may be moving next year and I want to move my mother. What is the costs of a room and do all facilities have to be licensed even if they house under 5 residents. I want to make sure I know what the laws are so I can ask the right questions when actual visiting the group homes. Are there extra fees for more services and what is the base average costs. Many thanks.- Lynn

Q: My mother is currently living in Sun City residential community but has started to lose her mobility (Age 88) and had some falls this past year. Her asset base is below ~20k and her main source of income is Social Security. This severely limits her choices for assisted living facilities that typically run ~3k per month. What are her options for getting the care she needs. - Janie

Assisted Living Directory iconI can vividly remember, as I was growing up, family trips to the Phoenix-metro area that, due to my father's career, took us to Sun City and Sun City West from time to time. To a young kid like myself, it was a completely strange and fascinating 'town.' Perfectly lined up homes; lush, green grass and perfectly engineered landscaping; golf courses around every corner; very little garbage or 'eyesores' anywhere - but the strangest thing to me was that there were no children and no playgrounds or schools to speak of.

Yes, this is Sun City West, and unless you are visiting a grandparent, and are not in the category of 'retired, snowbird, or senior' then it's a safe bet you don't live here.

To illustrate, Sun City West has around 30,000 residents. "...There were 14,997 households out of which none had children under the age of 18 living with them (2000)." 83.6% of the residents here are 65 years of age or older. This is staggering, compared to the Arizona state average of 13.8%.

Living in Sun City West, for seniors at least, offers a huge, and readily-available social support network of like-aged peers, with ample senior care facilities like assisted living, a high per-capita number of hospitals geared towards senior care and gerontology, abundant sunshine and agreeable weather, and the satisfaction of knowing that when your grandchildren visit, it will be a new, slightly strange, and memorable experience for them!
