Atria Park of Sierra Pointe

Review by Local Professional

Expert

Great location and great employees. They always go an extra mile to help you with your needs. But than again, I wish they would have more caregivers and with a better training. It would be nice to have caregivers knowing more about a proper catheter care, but in general they are nice and this counts too...

Atria was nice, but their assisted living was a very small unit and very segregated. They only had about 14 rooms geared toward a person who could maintain a more active lifestyle. They had a lot of amenities. There would be additional price for the different levels of care...

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.

Attractions

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. The McDowell Sonoran Preserve consists of 21,400 acres of desert wildlife and vegetation, including cacti and wildflowers. The sunset views from this desert oasis are truly stunning and residents of Scottsdale independent living will likely want to catch this spectacle of color.
