We Assist Senior Living in Phoenix
Brookdale Desert Ridge is an exceptional south central Arizona Assisted Living community serving seniors and their families from Phoenix, We also serve Scottsdale, Tempe, Paradise Valley and other surrounding towns and suburban neighborhoods in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.
Located on Bluefield Avenue between 40th and 41st, we enjoy easy access to Highways 51 and 101 and are conveniently close to restaurants, doctor’s offices, churches, coffee houses, banks, drug stores, a post office, Paradise Valley Mall, Kierland Commons Shopping Center, and Paradise Valley Park. We also enjoy the security of having the Mayo Clinic Hospital nearby.
We are regarded as a premier senior care community in this region because of the relationships our associates have with families who entrust us with the well-being of their loved ones.
We Balance Independence With Assistance
Your senior doesn’t have to choose between the two options of independence or assistance. Unlike a nursing home, Brookdale Desert Ridge is a community of apartment homes where they can have both … the independence of a private home, plus whatever type of supportive aid they need to perform daily tasks and maintain health.
A Family of Friends
If you remember your bygone days in a college dormitory or at summer camp, you recall the fun of living with people your own age who shared your interests and life experiences. You sat together in the cafeteria or living room, where you could play card games, board games, tell stories, share secrets and talk for hours. At Brookdale Desert Ridge, we recreate that fun communal experience of living with a family of friends.
The Senior Living Leader
Our community is owned and operated by Brookdale, the nation’s largest provider of senior living solutions. We are the number one leader in retirement hospitality and care because our associates connect with our residents, “adopt” them as our grandparents, and enrich their lives every day.
