Ideal Situation, Independent Living With Safety Nets

Thunderbird has a very well run independent living program. They respect the resident's privacy. Most maintenance issues are dealt with quickly. Medical and safety considerations are provided, but at the independent living it is at the discretion for the residents use. This can be concerning for me, as if my loved knew their restrictions they may not be in the community. The independent living services allow them to stay there and still live independently. They have transportation available for the residents to use for doctor appointments. They do allow pets, I wish there was more space for pets within the courtyard. The outside open space is large and can sometime be too hot for the residents and they may not realize this until it is too late. Meals seem to take a little longer due to shortage of staff; however, the staff they have is phenomal. The food is fantastic that is provided. We choose this community due to the continuing care available at the community. I would recommend the community to others.... Read more

Tour of Thunderbird

I toured Thunderbird Senior Living, it was a good tour experience and first impression. The gentleman who showed me around was very kind. I chose another community because I was not interested in the "apartment style" layout.

a good place for dad and mom

Working with Thunderbird was great, but my parents found Thunderbird on their own before I even contacted A Place for Mom. It was probably partly thru checking out some of the recommendations from APFM that they realized Thunderbird was the place for them.

Don't Bother Looking Elsewhere!

I would recommend you come here immediately. This place is awesome! I really enjoy it to my surprise. I was able to meet a group of friends quickly and they have introduced me to other offerings the community has to offer. I totally fit in here. There are exercise classes, card games, board games, water aerobics, movie nights, and more for the residents to choose from. You have the option to stay busy all day from 9 am to 6 pm each day. The food is very decent, and it is not bland. There are menus to choose a selection off of to order. The staff in the dining room are awesome. The apartment, housekeeping, utilities, transportation, and all the meals are included in the monthly rate. The apartment has a full kitchen in it and there are rooms with ceiling fans in them. There are laundry facilities in the building.

Everything My Loved One Needs and Hopes For, Very Happy

I've been raving about Thunderbird Senior Living to others. The staff are on top of things. They acknowledge the residents by name. The activities they offer are wonderful. Housekeeping comes in and does a great job. My loved one doesn't have a complaint about the community, and it is so nice to see my loved one happy. Field trips, games, bingo, card games, dice games, swimming pool, shuffleboard, hot tub, courtyards with ducks, movie days, chorus, and more are some of the activities for the residents to choose from to participate in. They will do trips to the grocery store for the residents, and this is amazing for the residents that don't drive. The community will take the residents to doctor appointments as well. There are two meals offered a day. Breakfast is included, and then the residents can choose to eat lunch or dinner. The staff tell the residents to decorate and do what they want with their apartment, the resident has total freedom. The community honors veteran's and this was important to my loved one. They allow dogs in the community. The is a beautiful and bright community with fresh flowers. There is a small café that offers food and drinks for an additional fee. There is a patio area off the main lobby that the residents can use for BBQ. Each month they celebrate the month's birthdays with food on the patio from the BBQ. They go all out for holidays.

Great Place for Senior Living

This has turned out to be a very nice place for my loved one to move to. My loved one has made friends here. There have been residents that left and came back because they missed the friendliness of the community. The staff are great to work with and are helpful. They quickly make changes to assist the family with their loved ones. The food has been a challenge; however, the food is getting better, and the community recently hired a new chef. Some of the activities available for the residents are choir, tai chi, yoga, arts and crafts, self improvement classes, and more for the residents to stay engaged with. There is a beauty salon on site that will allow for residents to get their hair and nails done.

Costumer Service is crap

It is my grandmother who is currently living in the independent living section. She has been here over a year and I am seeing no improvement in regards to there response to requests made by my mom. They will wait days and even weeks to fulfill requests such as cleaning spots off the floor or replacing fallen blinds from the window. The most recent incident is that my grandmother vomited and had diarrhea all over her bathroom floor. We were promised by lady at the front desk in the morning to have it cleaned by the time we got back from the hospital. We came back tonight and it is still the way it was when the paramedics were here this morning.

My review of Thunderbird Senior Living

My mother was a resident of Thunderbird Senior Living for almost 19 years. When she first moved in, she was in independent living and enjoyed many activities and met many friends. She could have played Bridge everyday but chose one day a week She went on many excursions with Thunderbird transportation, sightseeing and trips to the Casinos. When she passed away she want to thank Thunderbird in the obituary.

Thunderbird Senior Living Is The Best, Come Join Us

Thunderbird has activities that residents are able to sign up for. There are attendance limitations for these activities. Please move-in we will be neighbors. The community is very friendly-the staff, the residents, and they way the community has taken care of us is amazing. We had room service due to the community wanting us to stay in our rooms for COVID. They even brought the happy hour cart around on Thursdays for the third floor during lock down.

This is the best place for my mom

I chose this community because my mom lived very close to this community all of her community shopping and familiar places with there for her. Because of this,the transition to moving in was easy for her. Also, we chose this community for its affordability. The sales diector was wonderful and the staff are great. They are very helpful, friendly, and responsive. The food is hit or miss. Somedays she loves it and somedays it's not so great. I would recommend this community to other families and we have.

Good fit for my mom

For my mom it is adequate and it is her demographic , working class from her community, and it makes her feel more comfortable. The staff seem okay and seem wonderful when I speak to them. The are always very receptive. What I really like is that they are very no nonsense and that offer non pretentious activities. I would definitely recommend this community to other families.

My parents seem pretty happy at Thunderbird Senior Living. It was a struggle at first giving up their home. They are in Independent Living. The staff has been really helpful. They have been great with the quarantine helping to keep them safe, bringing their food to their rooms and keeping them busy. The food is really good.
