Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a great remedy to this situation. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping duties are taken care of for you while you are free to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private medical providers, they may always do so. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the care plan: field trips, private phone, cable TV, housekeeping, parking, move-in fee, utilities, and laundry. The amenities associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, private rental hall, game/TV room, security guards, laundry service, concierge services, and healthcare center.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

Access to hospitals is a major factor in choosing the most suitable choice. The top hospitals in Mesa include Banner Baywood Medical Center, Banner Heart Hospital, and Banner Desert Medical Center. In total, there are 6 hospitals located in Mesa which offer emergency services and other healthcare.

Cost of Living

The price of a Retirement community is determined by the neighborhood in which it is located. The median monthly rent in Mesa is about $1,023 and the median home value for Mesa costs around $182,782. The rent burden for Mesa is about 18.4% of the average person's monthly income. Mesa has a sales tax of 5.60%.
