Sagewood Continues Phased Reopening of Amenities, Activities and Events

PHOENIX (June 2, 2022) — Sagewood, a Life Plan Community featuring a resort-style setting in northeast Phoenix, is continuing to reopen amenities within the independent living community, Acacia Health Center and Desert Willow Assisted Living & Memory Care. In recent months, the property has upgraded existing facilities and added new features to the grounds. Residents have also been actively participating in events and forming new groups that fit their interests.
 
In April, visitor restrictions were lifted for Sagewood, Acacia and Desert Willow, allowing residents to welcome guests on campus. Restaurants have resumed their full services as of May 16 with delicious menus prepared by the executive chef and culinary team. The two on-site movie theaters have been renovated with state-of-the-art sound systems for a high-quality film watching experience.
 
Residents living in The Estates at Sagewood now have easy access to amenities with the completion of the park and pathway that links these homes to the main property. Construction of a new guardhouse and entrance off Mayo Boulevard is currently underway.
 
Activities and events are in full swing and resident groups have continued to grow. Among the newest is the Wine Club, which already boasts over 70 members who are enjoying talking about and tasting vino. In May, the Sagewood Links Social Club started by popular demand to introduce and engage residents in the premier Sagewood Links golf course. The club is non-competitive and open to players of all levels. With the reopening of the Sagewood movie theaters the Cinema Society Club also has begun to meet regularly to watch flicks with one another.
 
In the coming months, Sagewood has several special activities and events planned such as arts and crafts, jewelry making, ballroom dance classes and more. For continued information on updates, contact the resident community life services department at (480) 900-6093 or check in with the regularly updated activities calendar by visiting sagewoodlcs.com/activities.
