Located in Scottsdale, Arizona just outside of Phoenix, A Place in the Sun is a small, close-knit senior living community with plenty to offer.

I believe I made a good decision, the management is very compassionate and cooperative.

I believe I made a good decision, the management is very compassionate and cooperative. They have a really nice backyard, with flowers and rosebushes. They have a table out there, but he can't go out alone, I wish he could spend more time outdoors. I'm very happy that I did choose A Place in the Sun. It is close to home for me, and I have been really pleased with them.

The gentleman who ran the place pleasant enough. There was an odor and the areas were very poorly lit. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The bedroom he showed us was ok. The backyard was overgrown and not maintained. The house in general a little old and not kept up with fresh paint. Needed new furniture.

Very nice place. Residents looked happy and well cared for. [name removed] answered all our questions. This type of location is not quite what dad needs yet. He is much more independent, but will keep this in mind when the situation changes.
