Fresh and bright. Rooms are for those who've managed to downsize more that we have. We liked their full range of care but it is not really ADA friendly. Few handicap parking spots. Monthly rent in Assisted living higher than others in the Tucson market
We chose Brookdale because of the location as well as the facility was newer and had the amenities he was looking for. The apartment sizes are good, it is is perfect for his needs. Everyone is super friendly and the facility is in a very nice setting. I would recommend to other families looking.
First off, the staff are wonderful. They're delightful, very professional, and very caring. I don't get to visit every day, and I know they're watching out for my loved one. She is hard of hearing, so she's not sure if the residents are responding to her hellos or not. They seem to be a little cliquey, but she's only been there a few months. It's a pet friendly community, and she loves seeing the different pets when she's out and about walking. Another thing I think is terrific is they have a physician who is there once a week and available for appointments. They also bring in a podiatrist. My loved one loves the food. She says it tastes good, and is the right portion size for senior citizens. One of the reasons she chose Brookdale was because she wasn't ready to give up cooking altogether, and she has a full kitchen in her apartment. She fixes her own breakfast and lunch, but she does have her dinners delivered to her. With Covid, they've had some limitations on activities, but they're definitely trying. The director of activities sends out notifications on what they're offering. I've seen from the lobby there's a group that enjoys playing Wii bowling. I feel like it's an outstanding value at Brookdale Santa Catalina.
My wife and I moved into Brookdale Santa Catalina four years ago (2016), and we are very glad we did so. We realized that, as we are getting older, we no longer want the responsibilities of taking care of a house and yard, and we no longer need most of the possessions that we have accumulated for years. We lived in southwest Florida at that time, so we looked into several retirement facilities there. Among these, some required a substantial initial investment in turn for a lifetime guarantee of a home. Others were in high-rise buildings which felt more like hotels to us. Since our son lives in Tucson, we decided to investigate several retirement facilities there. As soon as we visited Brookdale Santa Catalina, we knew it was our first choice! We were delighted with its location in the foothills of the Santa Catalina range overlooking Tucson below. The traffic and other noise here is minimal in comparison with facilities in the city. The scenery is incredible with the mountains rising up within a short walk from our apartment. We are located in the center of a gated community that includes million-dollar homes with beautiful desert landscaping. The neighborhood is a wonderful place for walking due to a minimum of traffic and affords great views over the Tucson valley and surrounding mountains. We were immediately impressed that all residential buildings are only two stories high and are separated by paved walkways. The main building has a large lounge where community meetings, concerts, happy hours, and other programs are held. A library is adjacent to the lounge. The upstairs dining room offers splendid views of the Santa Catalinas to the north and of the Tucson valley to the south. Our chefs do a great job of providing menus with several choices twice each day. The friendly young servers quickly learn our names and go beyond their duties to make us happy. No tipping is allowed. Staff members in the other departments are equally accommodating. Our community offers a large variety of daily activities, many of which are on campus while others involve bus trips out to restaurants, happy hours, picnics, concerts, stores, museums, doctor visits, and even to out-of-town events. A hair salon, gym, and heated swimming pool are on site. The opportunity to swim outdoors in full view of the nearby mountains was especially attractive to me! In-house movies are shown every night through the tv’s in our apartments. The apartments in Independent Living vary from two-bedroom suites with 1455 square feet to smaller two-bedroom units ranging from 1330 to 900 square feet, and there are several sizes of one-bedroom units. Rent is by the month, and one can move out with a two-month notice. All apartments have emergency pull cords and a button to “check in” each morning. The campus also includes an Assisted Living building that includes skilled nursing and memory-care facilities.
This facility appeared to be very old rooms were very small with very small kitchen facility. We were turned off by the complexity of the layout of the facility with it’s many ups and downs. Not to our liking at all.
Not really handicapped friendly, no ramp from main visitor parking to office/community center, Few handicapped parking spaces throughout. Too difficult to navigate with a walker.
Not great for mobility challenged in independent living.
No great for mobility challenged in independent living.
Well situated property in a great area. Obviously well maintained with evidence of ongoing upkeep. Many opportunities for social interaction. More than met our expectations.
Their chef is fabulous, their kitchen and food is the most outstanding feature of the entire facility. My daughter came to visit and wanted to see where we eat so they invited us for lunch. The atmosphere of the dining area is very homey with a beautiful view of the mountains. The walls are all glass and you can look out and enjoy the amazing view while you are dining. The waitresses are wonderful. I have low vision so she assisted me with ordering, making sure that I didn’t miss anything. They are very professional. The menu options are six different entrees every day for lunch and dinner. If you are not hungry you can just order a soup or salad. They also have continental breakfast in the mornings and all the food served has the most adequate portioned size. They have many activities too, but I’m not sure how many. I am not active as I use to be however the staff encourages you to be up and about. They have a swimming pool onsite that I would like to try. The area is wonderful, the layout is great, and it’s a gated community from outside traffic. You would need to know someone to get in. There is someone manning the gate all the time which is a great safety feature than adds to the security. I love this place that I already started recommending it to others.
Way out of our price range, seems more a la carte, definitely not all inclusive...
My mother has been living at La Rosa (Assisted care and Alzheimer's care) for 2+ years. It was good when we moved in HOWEVER, Management has become a major issue. There has been turn over in key management positions including the Executive Director, the Head of Nursing and two event coordinators, all in the past 14 months. These management positions are extremely important to run a caring, well structured and good facility for the residents. The end result in this lack of management is employee turnover, no continuity of nursing care, and an overall depression of the staff. I would not recommend this facility. Thank you for taking time to read my review and please take into account before making a choice for yourself or a loved one.
We didn't like this community as much from the tour. When we got there things weren't going as smoothly as we liked. However another person I know has their parent there and they both love the community but we just did not get the same experience
I have no complaints about the tour I had taken of this community for myself. The staff where polite and made sure to answer any questions I had for them in detail. It was a little bigger of a facility then I had liked. I was looking for something more personal and smaller for my living environment.
My dad loves the community we moved him into. He really likes the meals and options to choose from. The activities are enjoyable for him. The staff communicate pretty good and they are good at providing the care my dad needs. I would recommend them to others.
Mom is quite happy in her recent move to Santa Catalina. Thanks to their help the move went smoothly and she has met several new neighbors. She is enjoying the activities too!
I toured Brookdale the other day and the people were very nice. I had a positive experience and it's a pleasant place.
My visit went great! The facility gave me great information and the move in process was seamless. I found that I really liked Brookdale. The facility is older, but it is very well maintained. I have had the opportunity to meet many residents and watched them enjoy a variety of activities, from theater performances to playing the Wii. The residents seemed to really like the facility. The size and layout of the facility was nice, and it had a great feel to it.
I think Brookdale Santa Catalina is the most beautiful place! There is an area to hike and a wonderful desert landscape behind the community. The lounge is a place you could picture yourself with a book or playing a game with a friend.I like the residents here I have a lot of similar interests with them. The staff is pleasant and helpful. One thing I have noticed is the staff appears a little overworked. They need to be more careful because sometimes their response time is longer than ideal. I chose Brookdale because of the size and the wonderful view. I am happy so far and I look forward to getting more involved in activities!
The staff at this community are encouraging and helpful. The food is very good and the community is kept clean. They offer a weekly cleaning service for mom's apartment. They have a ton of activities for the residents to participate in. The doors have a keypad entry and I feel secure with mom living here. I would recommend this community.
