Phoenix - AZ Alzheimer's Care Communities
For loved ones afflicted with Alzheimer's disease, there are more Alzheimer's care options to be considered than just home care assistance. Assisted living facilities have become an attractive alternative for Alzheimer's care in recent years, as some are specially equipped and staffed to attend to Alzheimer's patients. Alzheimer's Care offerings should include emphasis on: * Safety - there should be constant supervision to handle wandering patients * Structured Routine - consistent activities that echo the habits of the individual * Personalized Attention - Alzheimer's care staffers should have a full understanding of residents' specific needs
Phoenix Arizona is by far one of the more popular retirement destinations for 55+ retirement living in America due to its relatively low cost of living, sunny days and top rated golf courses and 55+ communities. Sun City, just northeast of Phoenix, was the first active adult community in the country making the Phoenix area ground zero for
"The Valley of the Sun," as the Phoenix metro area is known, is home to more than four million residents, making it one of the largest and fastest-growing areas of the country. And the nickname is well-chosen: Phoenix enjoys an average of 325 days of sunshine every year.
And, yes, it’s a dry heat. Summers can be very hot, as you would expect for a desert community; but from November through April the climate is sunny and the temperatures mild. Golf courses abound, along with spas, world-class restaurants, and art galleries (Nearby Scottsdale, in particular, has one of the largest populations of artists in the United States). As a matter of fact there are over 185 public, private, resort, municipal and executive golf course destinations in and around Phoenix.
The Phoenix metro area includes Maricopa County and large parts of Pinal County, and contains the cities of Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale, Tempe, and Scottsdale, along with other smaller communities.
