When looking for group homes in North Phoenix, there are a lot of options to consider. First, which part of North Phoenix are you looking to live in? Are you looking for a group home in North Phoenix on the east or the west side? Once you decide on a location radius, we are ready to begin looking. Do things like granite countertops and a new house matter? If they do, we can eliminate a whole bunch of group homes. If you are only focused on finding good care at a reasonable rate, maybe a newer house in an expensive neighborhood might not be your first choice. Looking for senior care in Arizona is difficult so hopefully this post is helpful.
Sometimes, even though a house may look new and seem to have nice amenities, it could have past violations, making it unsuitable for clients of Senior Planning (we provide our services at no charge to the patients and their families). We have rigorous standards and perform thorough background checks on any property we recommend. If there are violations on the property, or on other properties held by the same owner, it is a good indicator that this is a business you should avoid.
If the owner, however, has five properties, all major-violation free (sometimes a violation may be caused by misplacing a vase near a sprinkler, causing a fire hazard, etc…), it is a good indicator that the property you are looking at will be a good fit. The next concern you should have is whether or not the caregivers on staff are awake 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This may not be necessary depending on the condition of the client, but in our opinion, the more accessible the caregivers are the better.
Some homes, especially the smaller ones, have only one set of caregivers. These caregivers sleep when the patients go to sleep. It all depends on what your family and patient preferences are. With group homes in North Phoenix, there are plenty of different options to choose from.
