Top Notch!

Cascades is a wonderful and inviting community! We toured the Memory Care side, it was a great tour. The staff and Director [name removed] were very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend Cascades!

Liked the atmosphere, not over bearing or pretentious, residents seemed friendly and content. Liked the simple floorplan. Would be hard to get lost here. Every staff member smiled at us and greeted us. Facilities were very clean even in the midst of room refurbishing, there was no mess. Was a little surprised that the dining room couldn't serve my salmon without the bleu cheese but realized they must need to prepare it ahead of time. In general food was okay had alternatives to choose from, but dinner ended at 6:30 PM, is that a little too early? My first tour so I'm not sure. Think this would be a nice place for Mom and Dad. Is on my short list, will probably be bringing them back for a second tour.

Great place to live in Tucson for seniors.

I'm an independent resident at Cascades of Tucson for over 5 years now and highly recommend this place. The facility is kept very clean and the housekeeping staff is always available when help is needed. The residents and Cascades staff are very friendly and helpful. I enjoy living here.

DO NOT PUT A LOVED ONE IN THE CASCADES OF TUCSON

My 96 year old dad was at Cascades of Tucson for a month before he passed away. After moving in after hip surgery rehab he was welcomed with open arms. Unfortunately that was not to continue. During lunch one day he was treated horribly by a dining room server. So bad, in fact, as soon as we returned to his room he wanted to know how long he had to stay. Not long after, he was in the dining room and fell because he could not get anyone’s attention to bring him his walker and tried to get up and walk without it. He was sent to the ER for stitches and no family member was contacted. I only found out because I contacted the front desk after not being able to reach him. Eventually my dad ended up in the hospital with pneumonia and a gaping wound where his hip surgery scar had torn open - something the caregivers who bathed him twice a week and checked on him at night failed to notice. Do not be fooled by the outward appearance of this horrible place. My dad sadly has passed and encouraging him to move here for his well-being is one of my biggest regrets.

Response from Cascades of Tucson

We at Cascades of Tucson express our sincere condolences to you and your family at the loss of your father. We were honored to provide care to him for the short time he was a resident. We appreciate the time you took to write this review and assure you we take these issues seriously. When you brought the concern with an interaction between your father and a server to our attention it was addressed immediately. The misunderstanding between them was resolved to his and your satisfaction at the time. As is the case in most communities, the dining room is a very busy and crowded place. Walkers are removed for the safety of both residents and staff and there are occasions that it may take a busy server a few more minutes than usual to retrieve a walker when a resident requests it. We ask and encourage residents to be patient, but sometimes residents make the choice not to wait. As to a family member not being informed when your father fell choosing to retrieve his walker on his own, that is not the case. The incident report documentation on file clearly states which family member was contacted and that contact was made within thirty minutes of the occurrence. Also, the records and charts all indicate that the wound you mention being open was intact up until his fall. While we certainly understand your grief at losing a loved one, we also take very seriously the trust families put in us. We regret that you believe your father's care here was not up to standard. Please know that we appreciated him as a part of our treasured resident family.

Ver pleased!

We have been very pleased with the care my parents have received at Cascades. They moved in August of 2017. We visited nine care facilities. I knew right away that this was the right place. It isn't depressing nor does it have a nursing home feel. We liked that they could be iindependent and then go to assisted without having to move. When my mom fell, they notified us immediately. They have been extremely helpful, very pleasant, and always accomodating. My parents are happy here and enjoy the food. They are 88 and 90.

Nice Director

While looking at different locations for my love on and I toured this property I really like the director. The director is very nice, very knowledgeable, down to earth, and common sense. She seems to be very experienced in this field.

Excellent quality of Staff!!

I have recently moved my mother into this community and I could have not picked a better place for her to go. Every time I got to visit her they are always tending to her needs and interacting with her which really warms my heart. I liked that there is a registered nurse on the floor at all times throughout the day as well as night . Overall my mother is safe and comfortable in her living environment and that is what is most important to me. I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested.

Budget Friendly!!

The main reason I had taken a tour of this community for my self was because it was the least expensive out of all the different ones we had looked at. I was just not impressed with it, other than the price there was nothing else I was interested in. If you are looking for a budget friendly place I would recommend it to you.

A good tour!

I toured many communities with one being Cascades of Tucson. They all had their advantages and disadvantages. This community was nice, the tour guide that took me around was knowable and friendly. It was a good experience, but not the best for my loved ones.

Very nice place!

The Cascades of Tucson was a very nice community as well and had everything that my parents needed, but it was about $1500 more a month than other places. Other than that, it was a very well maintained place and we really liked it.

They Were Pushy and Not Understanding Our Needs

I went and had a tour and I specifically told them I needed a memory care unit. They tried to talk me into an assisted living. They were willing not to have her be as safe as she could be. I felt they wanted a resident real bad. I would not recommend

This goes against everything we believe in, and I'm not sure you even have the right place. It is against our license to place an individual who needs memory support into our Assisted Living community and we would NEVER make that recommendation. Sometimes there is a question until an assessment is preformed and perhaps you misunderstood the process. When we support independent, assisted, and memory care environments this would not even make sense. We welcome the opportunity to clear up your misunderstanding.

Friendly caring staff at Cascades

My parents moved in February 2017 and have been very pleased with the care and services provided. The transition from fully independent home owners to living in an assisted living apartment has been difficult for them. The staff at Cascades is friendly and caring making the transition easier.

Pricey!!

The Cascades of Tucson really compared to the community that we chose, but it was more expensive and not as nice. Other than that, it was a nice place with nice people, but not what we were looking for.
