10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Phoenix, AZ

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

With 300 sunny days a year and a laidback personality, Phoenix has long been a top destination for retirees. Because of its history as a retirement haven, Phoenix has a particularly high concentration of assisted living options. This means most people can find a quality assisted living option within a 10-mile radius of downtown Phoenix.

Phoenix has 124 traditional assisted living communities, but by far, the most common type of senior care in Phoenix is board and care homes. While these residential care homes differ from assisted living communities in size, many are licensed as assisted living communities and offer the same services in a smaller package. If you include these residential care homes, the number of facilities offering assisted living services in Phoenix jumps to 215, which far exceeds most similarly sized cities. In recent years, more luxury assisted living communities have also opened their doors, offering resort-like amenities and age-in-place programs.

This guide will help you pick the right Phoenix assisted living community for you. Below, you’ll find listings of the top-rated Phoenix assisted living facilities, ranked by categories that are important to families and their loved ones.

Phoenix, Arizona, Medicaid for assisted living

Each state has its own Medicaid benefits, and many state Medicaid programs may cover some long-term care costs to low-income individuals.

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (commonly known as AHCCCS) is Arizona’s Medicaid provider. Eligible individuals are assigned a case manager who coordinates their care. Some types of medical services covered by AHCCCS include the following:

  • Emergency care
  • Labs and X-rays
  • Prescriptions
  • Hospital care
  • Podiatry
  • Chiropractic care
  • Specialist care

AHCCCS also includes assisted living coverage for seniors and the disabled through a sub-program, Arizona Long Term Care Systems (known as ALTCS, pronounced ALL-tecs). This program covers the cost of assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and home health services for eligible seniors. Seniors using ALTCS to cover their assisted living costs can receive a shared or private room, although private rooms may come with an extra fee. Assisted living communities covered under this Medicaid program must be Medicaid-approved.

Understand Phoenix, Arizona, laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

All assisted living facilities in Arizona must undergo a robust licensing process through the Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing before opening. This process is overseen by the Arizona Department of Health Services and includes standard safety checks and quality-of-life measures, such as requiring mirrors in the bathrooms, sufficient hot and cold water, and good interior lighting.

Before obtaining a license to operate, all assisted living facilities must meet the state requirements during an inspection. After getting a license, assisted living facilities should pass one unannounced inspection a year to continue operating. Arizona makes the results of all assisted living inspections public through its Residential Facilities Provider Search Form — where you can search by facility or provider name and address.

Recently, Arizona strengthened its background check requirements for assisted living facility employees. This move now prohibits those with felony convictions involving violence or financial fraud from working in assisted living communities. All of these requirements and regulations add more layers of protection to a facility’s senior residents.

Phoenix: A laid-back leader in assisted living

Phoenix has long been a relaxed retiree’s paradise, and consequently, it has some of the highest numbers of seniors in America. The Valley of the Sun has seen some of the highest population growth in the nation, which has also created a few problems. Once known for its low cost of living, Phoenix’s rising housing prices have increased the cost of assisted living for its retirees. Although, residents can still expect to find a range of affordable assisted living communities in Phoenix simply because there are so many options.

A warm, dry climate and beautiful scenery are part of Phoenix’s appeal. Winter in Phoenix averages a high of 68 degrees and a low of 48 degrees, and summers are often over 100 degrees. While high temperatures may make hiking a challenge, many seniors enjoy the warmth from a shaded patio.

Due to the year-round sunshine, Phoenix has its share of snowbirds each winter who enjoy the many golf courses and spas. Many of the newer assisted living communities incorporate this resort-like atmosphere into their own amenities, including luxurious pools, in-house beauticians, and happy hours.

Types of assisted living in Phoenix, Arizona

Luxury assisted living

In keeping with Phoenix’s love for spas, there are plenty of luxury assisted living options. These often include resort-like amenities, such as fitness centers, outdoor pools, and immaculately landscaped grounds. Though, they do come with a higher price tag and a hefty one-time fee. For example, in Paradise Valley, the average cost of luxury assisted living is $5,750 a month. Because of the growing population, there are many brand-new or soon-to-open luxury assisted living facilities in Phoenix. Most are continuing care facilities, with tiered care levels that include independent living, assisted living, and memory care all on one site.

Traditional assisted living

Offering assistance with daily activities, housekeeping, and at least three meals a day, traditional assisted living communities in Phoenix are more cost-effective than luxury options but retain many of the same benefits.

Board and care homes

Board and care homes, or residential care homes, offer assisted living-type care in a residential home setting with under 10 residents. With 91 communities within the Phoenix city center, they are the second most common type of assisted living in Phoenix. Many residents choose a board and care home because they prefer being in a homey environment. These communities also tend to be less expensive than traditional assisted living communities while offering the same level of care.

Transportation for seniors in Phoenix, Arizona

To get around Phoenix, most residents use a car. However, the city does provide some public transportation options. The Valley Metro Transit System, known as Valley Metro, is the regional train system that operates throughout the city between 18 and 22 hours a day. Seniors over 65 can receive reduced fare by filling out the application on the Valley Metro website. While very affordable, wait times for the train are typically around 20 minutes or longer, which is why many residents choose to drive.

For only $1, seniors in Phoenix can use the Senior Center Shuttle Program, which provides residents of participating senior centers with flexible transportation to and from their senior living community and off-site activities.

Senior activities in Phoenix, Arizona

Residents of Phoenix enjoy year-round sunshine and dramatic desert vistas paired with a local preoccupation for chilled-out hobbies, exciting events, and tasty food.

While the local sports teams no longer offer senior discounts, Suns fans can watch their beloved NBA team play at the Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix.

The Phoenix area has plenty of casinos, with gaming and world-class events. The largest is Talking Stick Resort and Casino, with 240,000 square feet of gaming space along with a luxury hotel, theater, spa, and museum of Native American art. This casino, along with Casino Arizona and Gila River Casino, offers a shuttle service to and from various Scottsdale locations. Many local senior living communities also organize day trips to these casinos for their residents.

Long known as a steakhouse and Mexican food destination, Phoenix’s food scene is exploding with culinary talent. From quick and easy joints to fine dining, Phoenix has great food options for any taste and any budget.
