“This a new facility one a half years old/ It is a gorgeous 3 story building set on eight acres. It appears as a beautiful resort with fountains and lush greenery, flowers, trees. They have walking trails,benches, patios. and shaded areas. The views are beautiful as well. It is not a secured facility therefore they only have independent and assisted with no memory care/dementia residents.” – Emmyrose

Testimonial Image

“After looking at about every senior living community in Scottsdale my father and I decided on Arte 3 years ago. It was not an easy decision for either of us. Now we can honestly say there are no regrets, it has been the perfect place for him and I in so many ways. Although Arte went through some management transitions (and this is the only reason I did not give it all 5 stars) everyone has treated him and I with great compassion and care and always responded to anything asked. It is the perfect size of community, not too large which gives it a much more intimate feel. If you have not toured Arte you should, I know of no other community so up to date and modern, non depressing and nothing about it says old peoples home. Quite the opposite, after dad moved in and when touring my 20 something boys’ they were so impressed they wanted to hang out and play pool and watch sports on the flat screen in the stunning lounge with black granite countertops and rich wood. Food is excellent, location is the best with views of the McDowell Mountains, walking distance to grocery, pharmacy, dining. Always clean and inviting. Wonderful staff from the kitchen to housekeeping and maintenance to marketing to front desk. Convenient layout to dining room and entertainment, I could go on and on but really you have to see it to believe it. The kicker was with all of this I thought it would be so much more expensive and it was not which made it a no brainer. n3 years and going strong, we hope dad has many more at Arte!” – Holley Mackey
