Arizona - Housing Resources

There comes a time for many seniors when they can no longer live by themselves.  Bringing this conversation up is never easy, but usually completely necessary.  In order to make this conversation a bit easier, it is important to equip yourself with as much knowledge as possible regarding care options.

Assisted Living

Assisted living care is a good option for seniors who do not require intensive medical care, but who can no longer live independently.  Assisted living facilities are very independent, but the staff is always around to help with medications and other health care needs.  These facilities offersocial opportunities and activities for their residents.
