Exceptional Senior Living

You’re looking for more than just a retirement community that checks off most of your boxes. You’re looking for the right fit, a community of friends that feels like your tribe. Come find out if Brookdale Santa Catalina is right for you. As a continuing care retirement community or CCRC, you’ll have independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation all on a single campus. So if you or your spouse need more care down the road, you can have the lifestyle you want and the care you need.

As a resident, you have the freedom to experiment with new hobbies, reignite your sense of purpose and enjoy new experiences and connections with interesting new friends. And with a selection of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans, you’ll find just the pet-friendly apartment to fit your style. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind knowing our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

Take in Views of the Catalina Mountains

At Brookdale Santa Catalina, we can take care of the chores so you can focus on the fun. With housekeeping, laundry and dining services covered, you’ll have more time to do what you want to do. Set in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, you can enjoy the security of a gated community located on a 20-acre campus with walking paths, landscaped grounds with fountains and scenic mountain views. Plus, we even have a dog park, too. It’s a desert oasis close to the conveniences you want and need, like shopping, dining, places of worship and medical offices and hospitals.

Tucson is a magical historic town set against the stunning backdrop of the Sonoran Desert and the University of Arizona, with an engaging dining and shopping scene minutes from our campus. Stargazers can visit the Kitt Peak National Observatory and the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory. Art lovers won’t want to miss the galleries and museums here at this unique cultural crossroads. Check out the Mission San Xavier del Bac or take in this region’s unique military and aerospace history at the Pima Air & Space Museum. And don’t miss the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum! It’s a nature center, a botanical garden and an art gallery all in one.


Upsize Your Possibilities

This region is an outdoor lover's paradise. There are plenty of exciting places to explore in the Tucson area like the Saguaro National Park and other outdoor recreational areas, plus local parks and golf courses too. And when you want to stay closer to home, our campus has plenty of amenities for you to enjoy.

Our campus is all about supporting your independent lifestyle where you can live your best life. Go for a stroll through our gardens on paved walking paths or take a dip in our outdoor pool. If you love gardening, you can plant your favorite flowers in our courtyard gardens. You can even host a celebration with family or friends in our private dining room. And don’t forget to book your next hair appointment at our on-site salon.

Do More of What You Love

The event opportunities here are designed as part of our Optimum Life® program, a holistic initiative that focuses on helping you balance all six areas of wellness—purposeful, positive emotion, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual. Our residents love B-Fit, our signature exercise program, and our aquatics classes in our large outdoor pool. Our fitness center is partnered with SilverSneakers and offers more than 12 different classes each week.

We can take care of the chores while you focus on what you want to do. At Brookdale Santa Catalina, you’ll have a lot of choices for how to add more to your day. Maybe you want to take a yoga class in the morning, followed by a game of bunco in the afternoon. What about mahjong or the walking club? Or meeting neighbors for happy hour? It’s your choice. Shopping trips to local stores and boutiques, cooking classes, devotional services, card games in the game room or afternoon matinees are just a few more ways you could enjoy your day. Our team is also here to help connect you to new friends so you can live a meaningful, engaged life.

Our residents in our memory care community also have fun activities to look forward to. From creative pursuits to engaging in new and old hobbies, your family member will be gently guided through a series of dementia-friendly activities each day. We choose activities that support our residents’ wellness like music programs, dancing, scrapbooking and trivia.
