Top Benefits of Senior Living in Phoenix, Arizona

Doesn’t a place where the sun shines 300 days a year sound like the ideal location for retirement living? How about a community that’s set in gorgeous natural surroundings? In fact, sunny weather and breathtaking views are just a few of the reasons older adults are looking into senior living in Phoenix, Arizona. Further benefits abound, including:

A Luxury Lifestyle

Located in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix is set in the Sonoran Desert, surrounded by the McDowell Mountains, the White Tank Mountains, the Superstition Mountains and the Sierra Estrella. Here you’ll find Sagewood, a senior living community nestled on 85 acres of the Sonoran Desert with views of the picturesque McDowell Mountains in the distance. Our Southwestern-style architecture blends beautifully with the landscape, and our well-appointed apartments, lofts, and villas offer a luxurious home base from which to enjoy your Arizona adventures.

An Active Lifestyle

Staying physically active is good for mind, body, and spirit, boosting cognitive health, strengthening bones and muscles, easing anxiety, and supporting the ability to perform everyday activities. In Phoenix, where a winter’s day is likely to be sunny and 66 degrees, you’ll find it easy to enjoy an active lifestyle. Arizona is ranked second among U.S. states for “golfiness,” boasting many golf courses — including several that are top-rated — in a unique desert setting. Hikers and bird watchers will be drawn to the many parks, such as the Tonto National Forest, where bald eagles gather to breed, and over 230 trails take you into desert habitat or pine-forested mountains.

What’s more, in a Phoenix senior independent living community like Sagewood, amenities such as indoor and outdoor pools, a putting green, pickleball court, and fitness classes also provide plenty of ways to enjoy an active lifestyle close to home.

Cultural Attractions

From the fine arts to baseball, Phoenix offers an array of cultural attractions that are entertaining, inspiring and educational. Phoenix Art Museum is home to more than 20,000 artifacts and objects of art, including paintings by Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe, photography by Mariana Yampolsky, Japanese samurai armor, and sculpture by Viola Frey. At the Desert Botanical Garden, you can stroll through 55 acres of garden exhibits, showcasing a vast collection of cacti, trees and flowers from around the world.

Baseball fans will enjoy catching spring training games for the 15 Major League Baseball teams in the Cactus League. Of course, Phoenix has its own professional sports teams, as well. With the Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Cardinals all based in Phoenix, you’ll have home teams to cheer for year-round.

In addition, Sagewood residents have convenient proximity to the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM), which is adjacent to the senior living campus. At MIM, you can tour exhibits featuring musical instruments from around the world, and attend concerts and other special events.

A Plan for Life

You’ll enjoy the pleasures of life in Phoenix even more if you know that your future is taken care of. Sagewood is a Life Plan Community, which means that a full continuum of care is available on our campus. Should you experience a health setback, you’ll have access to assisted living, memory care, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term skilled nursing here in the same community you call home. What’s more, a Health Care Navigator can provide guidance about wellness opportunities and offer support if you ever need to transition between levels of care.
