Testimonials for Amethyst Gardens
We can talk all day about how great our communities are, but we think you should hear from people who have experienced first-hand how we offer an unmatched quality of life at every senior living community.
I’ve looked at Amethyst Senior Living, and I love it. It’s a very nice place, and it’s kept very clean. All the staff knew the residents by name, and I was very impressed with it. The rooms are beautiful. My daughter went with me, they took her to the Alzheimer’s section, and she told me it was very nice. I was very impressed with it. Pets are also allowed in this facility. They have a hairdresser and a cafe like a little Starbucks that is open from 10-2. They also do games.
Very wonderful, no complaints at all. Very reasonable price at this location. The price is great but the place is excellent. So much nicer. I love that they provide 3 meals a day, others didn’t do that. My father and his wife have a full kitchen in their apartment but if they don’t feel like cooking they have the option to go down to the dining hall. They have a special a day and if my father wanted to he can order everything on the menu. My husband and I have personally tried out the food and it was awesome.
I can never thank the staff enough for what you did for my Mother. The staff got my mother and I through a difficult time when my Mom first arrived. I truly never had to worry about my mother because the caregivers were always there for her and were always ready to respond to her needs. It was comforting knowing my mother was in good hands and safe. I highly recommend this facility

“Still first choice. Dad is starting to give things away so while he says he’s not moving yet, I believe he’s thinking about it.”
“The quality of service at the Inn at Amethyst is truly outstanding. I took a friend’s grandmother to view the facility, and though she was a little nervous at first, the staff were so personable and made her feel very welcome. We joined in an activity they were having and she had the greatest time socializing and making new friends. Following the activity, we enjoyed dinner in the dining room, and she fell in love with the meatloaf gravy and mashed potatoes. She said that it was absolutely the epitome of a home cooked meal. She said the food alone was worth making the move to the facility. When it was time to leave, I practically had to pull her out of there! I was incredibly happy with how the staff made her feel so welcome. They almost instantly put any anxiety she may have been feeling to rest by introducing her to residents and getting her involved with the activities. They gave her an idea of what a typical day living there would be like, and I think that really helped her to feel more comfortable with the impending transition from her own home to her assisted living home. She realized that her life there was not going to impose the boring and sedentary lifestyle she had been afraid of. Instead she found that the Inn at Amethyst supports and encourages a very active and healthy lifestyle and they going even further in this support by offering residents a wide variety of different activities to choose from each month. She really fell in love with the Inn at Amethyst and I was very impressed with the quality of service and care that I observed.”
“My friend Martha was in need of an assisted living facility. We were looking in the NW Phoenix area and toured approximately a dozen different facilities over the period of a few weeks. Amethyst Gardens came out on top over everything else we looked at when all of the parameters were considered. Cost, value, amenities, customer service, location, size, age and overall property condition, etc. My 88 year old father came with us on our last visit and was so impressed by the facility and what it offered he is excited to move there as well! My friend Martha moved in on the 1st of this month and is very pleased with her choice.”
