Buyer Beware

I'm not getting the service I thought I would get. Everything could be improved to allow a better experience for the residents. The staff seem to avoid the residents as much as they can. The food is fair, and they don't seem to accommodate special dietary restrictions.

Unsatisfied and Unsafe

I would recommend that your loved one is able to 100% care for themselves. The community wasn't able to assist with bathing or care of my loved one like they promised me that my loved one would be getting.

It is a good place, but needs to improve

The space is very nice, we are very happy with the configuration of the rooms and the psychical look of the place and the people are very nice. Everyone that works there is doing their best and showing a lot of care towards the residents. However there are improvements that could be made, and the first is their staffing. They are way under staffed which causes implication with the quality of the care. Also, they do not have a regular nursing staff so they are having to bring temp nurses in from other agencies Also the dining hall is understaffed which causes issues with the overall service.

I have to call for the staff to communicate with me about my loved one. The community provides lock services for my loved one.

A day in the life at Foothills

We chose Foothills Place because it seemed like it was going to be the best fit for my brothers at the time after talking to the staff members, especially [name removed, the sales person and [name removed], the head nurse. I would recommend to others looking with careful consideration as long as they meet your loved ones needs.

I Placed My Loved One in Heaven Before Heaven

My loved one enjoyed the food, and it was the best the best they had. The staff knows people by name. In the times I was there not once did I see a staff member lose their patience with the residents. They were respectful, polite, professional, and kept repeating requests. if necessary The place was clean and there was no smell. People are willing to help you, even if it isn't their job to help in that area. The staff wanted to be there. The residents help and watch over each other. It has a nice mix of men and women in the community. We are thinking about going and getting a unit with this community. I will always highly recommend the community to others. I would put my dearest family member here again. The community is pet friendly.

Highly recommend

We chose Foothills Place because we knew someone who was here in the past and when we visited we were intrigued by it. Then when my mother reached the point where she needed similar care, we visited again and had an even better impression the second time going in. I think the room sizes here are adequate for her needs. I think that they handled the covid crisis better than we could have expected. I would absolutely recommend them.

Very nice discussion with [name removed]. Her focus on needs and solutions was appreciated and she provided a live tour via FaceTime. Additionally, she followed up with cost breakdowns so I have all the information I need to make a decision. I plan to visit in person when I come to Tucson in mid-March.

I would recommend

We chose Foothills Place because they take alltec and they were taking new residents during covid. Overall, I am pleased with our experience so far. We have had some issues with communication but it was resolved quickly. I would recommend to others looking, but I would want others to know if your loved one has Alzheimer's and there has to be a lock down it may be very distressing or confusing for them.

A good fit for our family

Our experience with the facility started out really great before covid hit. Once it hit, they had a huge outbreak and she has been sick. One thing they did do very well on is communication during these times, they always keep us informed on how many people have it. They also did a very good job of assessing the amount of care she needed. A good point about the food is they are working with her on her gluten free diet, she is very picky but has not complained about the food. They also let her bring all of her craft things into the facility and was able to teach some craft classes. It is a smaller community and she gets a lot of personal attention. I would recommend to others looking, she is really happy here.

We think he is less at risk being there than at home

The care services would be a five plus, as well as the value for cost. Our loved one has a one bedroom studio apartment. the community itself looks like a hotel. The staff has been excellent during this time with covid, they have been keeping us well informed. We think our loved one is being taken care of better there that what he would be if living at home.

Your phone call to me

We chose Foothills Place at the time because of the price. The room sizes here are average compared to some others we looked into. It is hard to give a review right now due to the times that we are in, but overall I would recommend the facility.

They are caring, safe, and accommodating

The staff at Foothills Place is very friendly and helpful. My father said the food from the dining room is usually cold when served and not quite suitable for him. The community always smelled nice, however my dad's room never seemed to be deep cleaned, which meant there was often a layer of dust on the counter tops. Anytime I called with questions or concerns, the staff at Foothills Place was quick about communicating with me and always made sure to get back to me if I missed them or didn't get the answer I needed. In comparison to how expensive assisted living communities are, we felt it was definitely worth price. The care was good, however the community did forget to give my father one of his medications entirely. The staff made sure to always provide activities for the residents so they always had the opportunity to be entertained.

Best place at the time!

Everywhere you go in the community it looks clean. The whole place has a very homey, hotel-like atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and seem to really care for my dad. The community wasn't entirely upfront about added costs, so our family is now baring the cost of some of his care and medications. Sometimes we do have to go into the community physically and discuss costs with them, which can be an inconvenience to our family. Care seems to be good for my father. With that said, however, they could be slightly more communicative. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff has been good about providing us with updates and providing tests to all the residents and staff. If someone starts showing symptoms, they seem quick to react and protect all members of the communities. Activities are fine for a lot of residents, however dad does not often choose to participate. When I have visited, I have seen other residents playing piano, singing, and participating in other games, which is great to see.

Good Care, Excellent Staff.

The staff at Foothills Place seems to really care about the residents. They have a lot of activities to keep residents entertained, even now with Covid -19 when they can not bring in outside entertainers like they do under normal circumstances, they are keeping them very busy. It is a very well run community. My mom seems very happy at Foothills Place.

Friendly, caring and affordable community

This is a very friendly and welcoming community. The apartments are lovely and the whole building is very pleasant and clean, in a nice location next to the river walk. The staff is very helpful and kind. The food is good, even though residents sometimes have to wait a long time to be served. My mom seems pretty happy and content here, even though it's only been two weeks. Sometimes the care staff seems pretty stretched, but they are very responsive to concerns and needs. It is very affordable, compared to other comparable facilities.

Great experience at Foothills Place!

I want to sing the praises of Foothills place. My friend needed a place of respite while she was waiting to go back to Mexico to her family She needed more time to recuperate after being hospitalized from a fall and not being able to return home alone. We found the place thanks to [name removed] from A Place for Mom who highly recommended Foot Hills Place. My friend required extensive assistance. At Foothills she received excellent care from the caregivers and nurses. My friend loved the food and finally started to to gain weight which she really needed to do. Thanks to the chef and kitchen staff. The receptionists and management was also very kind and ready to solve any problem. The maintenance staff also were always polite, and efficient at solving problems that arose. My friend and I both give a big thumbs up to Foot Hills Place. Thanks to everyone we encountered at Foothills place.

The tour was excellent. I really liked Foothills Place. It is a small community with many activities...unfortunately I came during lunch; I didn't see any group engaged in an activity. The dinning room was spacious. The studios were a good size. The staff was friendly and interacted well with the residents. I think my loved ones will be comfortable at Foothills Place

Staff friendly. They greeted and engaged residents as we toured. A nice physical set up. The suite room was the best we have seen in terms of the ability to utilize a small space. Outdoor area a bit smaller that some, but very nice.
