Friendship Village of Tempe

Review by Local Professional

I have had several clients in the skilled care unit at this property. The care has consistently been good and the staff are knowledgeable and caring. Friendship Village is a multiple level property with a buy-in, but the skilled care unit is open to anyone that meets admission criteria.

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Tempe

Pioneers of Tempe compared the 300-foot butte towering over the Salt Valley to Mount Olympus, and therefore named their city after the Vale of Tempe in Greece. This Arizona city boasts more water than is expected of a land-locked state, due to the dams creating Tempe Town Lake. The lake and Salt River provide a cooling effect for the city and its nearly 200,000 residents. Tempe offers a perfect blend of historic preservation and modern renovation, creating a comfortable retirement spot for residents of assisted living. Tempe’s economically and environmentally sound principles have gained this city honor as the very first recipient of the “Smart Growth Award” in 2009.

Tempe Recreation

Host to the 2004 Presidential Debates, the Gammage Auditorium now presents itself mainly as a venue for musical theatre. Symphonic entertainment options are available at the Tempe Center for the Arts and individuals enjoying assisted living in Tempe who crave even more culture can visit the Edna Vihel Center for the Arts, located next to the beautifully constructed Tempe Public Library. Tempe Marketplace takes shopping to a whole new level by adding in live entertainment and dramatic laser shows and Mill Avenue offers even more options for consumerism combined with entertainment. Those who appreciate a more traditional mall-going experience will love browsing through the many stores of Arizona Mills.

Tempe Senior Activities

Resdients of assisted living in Tempe can choose from four different full-service senior centers, offering the very best in activities and classes. Tempe Connections is an innovative non-profit program with a mission to add purpose and passion to the lives of the city’s most seasoned citizens.

Tempe Transportation

Although Tempe has been named “The Most Walkable City in Arizona” there are plenty of public transportation options available to residents of assisted living. Tempe enjoys the reliable bus and train services of Valley Metro, in addition to the free and wheelchair-accessible FLASH shuttles. The no-cost Orbit shuttle system connects outlying areas of the city with central destinations by use of a fleet of small buses cleverly named after the first five planets in our solar system. Dial-A-Ride and East Valley RideChoice assist seniors with cab coupons and other special door-to-door transportation options. Tempe will provide your senior loved one with an unparalleled Southwestern lifestyle in the very heart of the Valley of the Sun.
