Our Community

Thunderbird’s common areas are designed with accessibility, flow, and movement in mind. Once you arrive you’ll notice our building’s huge entrance area, lined with tons of available seating. Our community has an outside patio garden accessible to everyone. Residents also have access to many relaxing communal spaces, including a hot tub and swimming pool. We are located near public transit options, providing residents with convenient transportation services throughout town. We also have free parking available to residents who have their own vehicle, and parking is offered to guests for the duration of their visit. At Thunderbird, we think of our community as purpose-built, providing the benefit of individualized care - every aspect of the community is designed to cater to the unique needs of its residents.

Living Arrangements

We have nine unit types available at Thunderbird, including private 1-bedrooms as well as accessible units designed to accommodate wheelchair users and disabled individuals. To maintain a comfortable setting, our community has air conditioning, and temperatures are regulated to optimize safety. Our residents also enjoy free access to cable, satellite TV, and wireless internet.

On-Site Activities

Thunderbird has designated staff members who regularly curate events and activities to keep our residents physically and mentally engaged. We love to host holiday parties, birthday parties, BBQs, picnics, and outdoor get-togethers. We also organize community service programs for our residents to participate in. You can even attend or participate in a rousing game of pool in our dedicated billiards room!

Dining

Regular meals are provided to all of our residents throughout the day, and room service is always an option, for those who would like some privacy while they dine. Our culinary staff can prepare meals for folks with any dietary restrictions, including low-sodium or vegetarian options.

Personal Services

Thunderbird offers residents an opportunity to sit back and relax while we handle the chores. This includes tidying up your space, as well as laundering and dry cleaning. We offer grocery shopping services to eliminate the need for trips to the store. And when it comes to personal grooming, you don’t even have to leave the community - we have a beautician and barber on-site!

Religious Services

We offer devotional services at our location, so residents can worship with their neighbors. Catholic religious services are available, provided by a visiting chaplain. Several churches are within a short distance should you have a specific congregation you’d like to worship with.

Medical Care

This community employs licensed nurse practitioners for administered injections and medication administration, along with a program to monitor insulin levels via glucose tests. Staff members are versed in the usage of the Hoyer Lift for transfer assistance. Our facility is properly equipped and staffed to handle IV insertion and feeding tube management. We are also capable of providing incontinence care for bladder- and bowel-related symptoms, including catheter care.

Services for residents with disorientation or lack of awareness issues ensure that all of our community members are well-directed and receive support in living a healthy lifestyle, and that no one’s needs are neglected. Our facilities are secure and the staff is specially trained in de-escalating exit-seeking behaviors as well as other behavioral issues, and we are fully equipped to safely handle any related occurrences that may arise.

On-Site Medical Services

Our staff is awake and available 24 hours a day to assist your loved one with any time-sensitive needs that may arise. We offer on-site massage therapy to our residents, along with speech therapy services provided by trained and certified speech pathologists. Our residents can schedule reminders and exceptions for both medications and care activities. At Thunderbird, we offer hospice services, as well as respite care - a short-term stay at a senior living community - perfect for those recovering from a hospital visit, the interim during which a caregiver takes an extended vacation, or simply to experience a senior living trial period.

Visiting Care

Regular visits from specialized occupational therapists are available to aid residents with development, recovery, and maintenance of the skills needed for daily living. A visiting nurse is available to all community members, and a doctor is always on-call to handle adjustments in medication, provide consultation, and respond to any urgent medical needs that may arise. A dentist pays regular visits to our facility to monitor our residents’ oral hygiene, and we recruit a visiting podiatrist whose job it is to ensure our residents are happy, fit, and mobile.

  • 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.

  • Great Place

    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.

  • A safe place for my husband

    Overall, things are going well. One reason we chose this community is when we visited Thunderbird, my older son absolutely fell in love with the homelike atmosphere. Another reason we chose the community is its close proximity to where we live. My husband is a fall risk and, for me, knowing that he is somewhere that there are people who can take care of him really takes a load off of my mind. I know that he is in a safe place. We have been very pleased with the staff on my husband's floor. They treat me like family and are very welcoming. The only negative i have found is that there seems to be a lack of communication between the different shifts of staff.
