Arizona’s Assisted Living And Senior Communities

Arizona is home to one of the largest senior populations in America. Many of which have been living independently for most of their lives, cooking, cleaning, showering and clothing themselves, but what happens when their no longer able to handle it all themselves? Many seniors choose to live in an assisted living facility which offers the ability to maintain a certain level of independence while receiving the daily assistance they need. Since a living facility is not a nursing home it’s important to make sure patients are receiving proper medical care either in house, or through a mobile medical care service. In Arizona there are 3 types of assisted living facilities that can benefit from mobile medical care services for their residents:

  • Adult Foster Care Homes: Up to 4 adults living with a designated caregiver is a residential home.
  • Assisted Living Homes: Up to 10 seniors living in a senior care home with a staff that assists with daily living for it’s residents.
  • Assisted Centers: Larger facilities that proved living assistance for 11 or more residents at a time.
ALF staff members assist with living but aren't physicians.

Most living facilities will maintain a staff that’s able to assist with a limited set of medical services such as maintaining records and managing medication but what about an actual doctor or physician? Facilities have the option to provide a shuttle and transportation to take their residents to doctors appointments, or they can provide in-house solutions that eliminate the need for the patient to travel or leave the facility.

  2. I think that sometime in the future, that there will be a lot more use of mobile services. With assisted living centers, it would be most beneficial for them. If I was in one of those places, I would only want the best care I could get.
