    My parents moved into MG In July and are pleased with their decision to do so. So am I. I researched several facilities around Anthem and the north and west Phoenix area.

  • Beyond what I expected!

    This facility has been beyond what I’ve expected. The building itself is well kept and always looks clean. They are far better than other places I had toured. The atmosphere here is welcoming and quiet. I really like that the staff members here know all of the residents by name. For activities, they offer things like bingo, games and shopping trips. I would recommend this facility to other families.
