Reviews of Scottsdale Independent Living Communities

I'm in Scottsdale Village, and overall, it's good. The facility and rooms are nice and kept clean. The outdoors are very well taken care of. Everything is repaired immediately if anything goes wrong. The food is good.

The rooms were small at Scottsdale and inadequate for me, they don’t have a kitchen, so there’s no way of cooking food on your own. Although they provide all the meals, one doesn’t always want to do that, and their solution is to provide a microwave. I wasn’t too impressed with that...

Information About Independent Living Facility in Scottsdale

Scottsdale Independent LivingIt is no wonder that Scottsdale, Arizona, consistently wins awards for being one of the most desirable cities in the United States in which to live. With approximately 330 sunshine-filled days a year, hot summers and mild winters, almost 200 local golf courses, approximately 100 art galleries, and a vibrant downtown core filled with restaurants, stores and lounges, it is easy to see why Scottsdale impresses residents and visitors alike. In 2012, it made Bloomberg Businessweek's list of most desirable American cities. In the same year, an analysis by 24/7 Wall St. listed Scottsdale as the eighth best-run city in America and AmericanStyle Magazine ranked it as a top Arts Destination. With an approximate population of 221,020, and 20% of these residents aged sixty-five or older, seniors who choose Scottsdale independent living are sure to be delighted by this exciting and intriguing city.


With an impressive selection of museums and art galleries in Scottsdale, art and history lovers will never run out of things to do. Visitors to the Heard Museum North Scottsdale can view American Indian art while the Musical Instrument Museum is a must-see for all music lovers. Art enthusiasts are sure to enjoy wandering through the Scottsdale Arts District, most likely stopping in at the numerous galleries, antique shops and tantalizing restaurants. While Scottsdale offers a vibrant and exciting city experience, one never forgets that this is the American Southwest and the surrounding desert landscape is bound to impress.
