Welcome to Thunderbird Senior Living

Thunderbird Senior Living Award


In sunny Arizona surrounded by beautiful landscape with easy access to local attractions, seniors are enjoying life of luxury and relaxation at Thunderbird Senior Living. Our community empowers residents to live life on their own terms, regardless of what stage of life they find themselves in. First-class amenities and an environment ripe with stimulating conversation offers you the ability to live your life in your style.


Our beautiful community provides each resident the opportunity to pursue their hobbies and live their life however they choose. At the same time, families and residents alike benefit from knowing that health services are available if they are ever needed. Home care, assisted living, and memory care are all offered under one roof. Not convinced yet? Just ask the turtles as you stroll through our beautiful courtyard, or take a dip in the pool, or enjoy a delicious meal from our celebrated dining team.


At Thunderbird, you’ll have the lifestyle you deserve, plus all the help you need and want. We’re committed to assisting you how you like, when you like, 24 hours per day – on your schedule, not ours. You tell us your preferences for when, where and how and we’ll take care of the rest. Our experience has taught us that the best care doesn’t have to mean an environment that feels “medical.” At Thunderbird, the atmosphere is stylish and comfortable and care is customized to your needs and preferences. After all, what good is outstanding care if it’s the same for everyone? Each resident has a unique care plan developed, supervised, and regularly reviewed by our Resident Services Director and our Assisted Living LPN. A typical plan ensures that proper nutrition, activity assistance, and medication management are coordinated to maximize the quality of life of Thunderbird’s Assisted Living Residents.


Our memory care is designed to not only meet the unique needs of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related disorders, but to enhance their lives. Staffed by licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants, we provide 24-hour care to create an atmosphere in which our residents can thrive. Our team of trained professionals has integrated programming that provides resident-centered, activity-focused care that encourages resident and family interaction.
