The Forum at Desert Harbor was a really nice facility. They had snacks out all of the time, and it seemed like they had games that they were participating in. It was very good and seemed a little pricey, but pricey is what you get when you pay for good stuff.

We didn’t care for the size of the rooms and meals at The Forum at Desert Harbor, but the overall facility was pretty decent. The staff was very good. We visited the pool area. The food was not as good as we had hoped.

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Peoria

Peoria is Arizona's fourth-largest city, straddling two counties across the spread of its 178-square-mile radius. Despite the city's size, a population of well under 200,000 leaves residents of assisted living in Peoria with plenty of breathing room. Surrounded by rivers and small mountains, Peoria's warm climate has helped the city blossom from a simple farming town to a progressive desert suburb of metropolitan Phoenix. As a site of Major League Baseball glory and Arizona's second largest lake, Peoria is a small community with a big personality.

Peoria Recreation

For outdoor lovers, Lake Pleasant covers 10,000 acres, including a regional park and the vibrant Pleasant Harbor. Another activity to enjoy on a sunny day is a visit to the Peoria Sports Complex, the spring training grounds of the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners. On the rare occasion of bad weather, residents of assisted living in Peoria can visit the Challenger Space Center, a high-quality aerospace museum sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute. For evening entertainment, the Arizona Broadway Theatre and Theater Works present performances of popular musicals and plays. Shoppers in Peoria may choose from two Walmart Super Centers or visit the Park West Mall. The Arrowhead Entertainment District contains movie theatres and even more quality shopping.

Peoria Activities

Peoria operates extensive programs designed to occupy and amuse its vivacious senior population. Their quarterly newsletter, At Your Leisure, lists activities such as classes, clubs and field trips geared toward residents of assisted living in Peoria. Low-key fitness programs and Bingo tournaments are also available at the Peoria Community Center.

Peoria Medical Facilities

The Surgery Center of Peoria offers first-rate surgical services in a safe and welcoming environment. Also located within the city, Banner Boswell Medical Center, in nearby Sun City, is the West Valley's only certified stroke center. The hospital also operates the full-service Banner Olive Branch Senior Center, a facility that is open to residents of assisted living in Peoria.

Peoria Transportation

The extensive bus and train system operated by Valley Metro provides reliable public transportation throughout the city of Peoria and the entire Phoenix area. The company offers an affordable Dial-A-Ride service, and residents of assisted living in Peoria are eligible for Dial-A-Ride Plus, which transports seniors to three neighboring medical campuses. In 2008, Money Magazine listed Peoria as one of the Top 100 Places to Live, and the warm climate and small-town atmosphere of Peoria has continued to attract new residents ever since.
