Not all people are the same, and not all Senior Living Communities are right for every aging individual. At the Mission at Agua Fria in Arizona, we understand the concerns of finding the right senior living community and support that’s best for you or your loved one. The decision to move into a senior living community can be overwhelming enough without even considering the care options and amenities each community may have. While these changes can be stressful and intimidating, we want to provide insight into the care options you can find within our community.
We pride ourselves on providing personalized cognitive care for each of our residents because we believe everyone should have the ability to age with dignity. To ensure this practice, we provide the assistance you desire with the independence you deserve through two main care options: assisted living and memory care. Let’s take a look at these care options to help you decide if the Mission at Agua Fria is the right senior living community for you.
We recognize that each senior member in our community has needs of varying degrees. We try to provide just enough personal care service and support to ensure you live comfortably while still maintaining the independence and control you want. This starts with your home, which can be one of our 59 private studio or one-bedroom living apartments. We have four varying floor plans you can choose from, some of which include kitchenettes. While these apartments come furnished with standard luxuries, we encourage each resident to make their space their own by bringing along favorite pieces of furniture, decorations, and sentimental items.
In your apartment you can expect to find a spacious bathroom with a walk- or wheel-in shower and a grab bar for safety. You will also find ample closet space perfect for your wardrobe and housing those meaningful items that bring you joy. All of our apartment homes also come equipped with emergency response cords, and each community member gets an emergency pendant to ensure they always receive timely medical care and assistance.
Within our community, we also provide memory care. This consists of a safe and secure environment for residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We ensure that not only is our staff caring, licensed, and certified, but also specially trained to provide the support and care necessary for residents with memory care needs.
We offer 30 well-equipped and comfortable memory care studios within our community. They also come designed with walk- and wheel-in showers that include grab bars, emergency response pull cords, and ample closet space. Along with ADA accessibility, these memory care studios include all utilities plus cable, apartment maintenance, weekly housekeeping, daily trash removal, and personal laundry and linen service. These studio homes reside in our memory care neighborhood, conveniently located on our ground floor.
This neighborhood also includes its own dining room, activity room, open lounge, large central gathering room, and dedicated nurse’s station. With the 24-hour care staff on-site, our memory care program is designed to ensure you or your loved one can focus on the things that matter and leave the chores to us.
To us, memory care is more than just a focus on the loss of memory among our residents. We want to ensure the highest quality of life by providing programs designed to stimulate and inspire our residents. These activities include incorporating art, sensory integration, and music to nourish not only the brain but also the soul. We also encourage pet therapy because we value the bonds and support developed with our furry friends. Our memory care service also includes health benefits through our state-of-the-art exercise program and an outdoor courtyard, perfect for walking the paths while socializing with new friends. This way we are sure to take care of the minds, bodies, and souls of our memory care residents.
We also ensure our care extends to the families of our memory care residents through ongoing evaluations and open communication on the condition of their loved ones.
While each program has qualities specific to the needs of its residents, there are also services and amenities that everyone can enjoy. One of the best things about deciding the Mission at Agua Fria in Arizona should be you or your loved one’s next home is the socialization and friendships you will develop being surrounded by peers. Some of the fun and enriching community features include a movie theater with luxury loungers, a game room, an arts and crafts room, and a fitness center. We also have a computer center, a chapel, and a large enclosed outdoor courtyard so you can connect with nature. Every resident should also get to look their best, which is why there’s also a beauty salon within our community.
For the more sensible needs of our residents, the Mission at Agua Fria Arizona provides educational opportunities, three nutritious restaurant-style meals daily, medication oversight, and personalized care. Prior to move-in, a licensed nurse completes an assessment with each resident to determine personal care plans and needs to tailor the experience based not only on medical history, but preference as well. Personal care services that address activities of daily living include assistance with dressing, bathing, mobility, meals, and activities. We pay attention to every detail of residents’ needs to ensure all are happy, healthy, and able to age gracefully within our community.
