With so much green space on North Chandler Place’s conveniently located continuum of care senior living community, it really stands out from its competitors.
Located at 2555 N. Price Road in Chandler, the community offers apartment homes for adults 55 and older; assisted living; memory care and five-star-rated nursing care and rehabilitation.
The independent living residences are separate from the rest of the campus. Apartments range in size from 647 to 1,330 square feet and rent starts at $2,100 per month — a great deal considering that rent includes two meals each day, complimentary use of washers and dryers, basic cable, an emergency call system, and activities.
Kathleen Fanning, community relations director, says the campus had a record-breaking summer with move-in activity.
“It is wonderful that prospective residents chose us because of the amazing sense of community we have cultivated here at North Chandler Place,” Fanning says. “I would encourage anyone interested in making a move to act now so that they can take advantage of, and lock in, our low 2021 rates.”
There is a variety of apartment styles for rent. The largest apartment is 1,330 square feet, which Fanning described as “huge.”
“That is a big deal here,” she says. “We’re probably the only place where you can get something that big that isn’t twice our price.”
Fanning encourages all potential residents to shop around and compare. “Our campus also offers personal care services with our staff located on-site — a really unique amenity,” she adds.
Other accommodations include assisted living and memory care. Complete with a 24-hour certified care staff, assisted living begins at $1,800 plus care, which is personalized to meet the distinct needs of every individual. Residents enjoy life-enriching activities and outings, three meals and snacks each day, and a visit by a licensed nurse on staff.
The memory care suites offer all-inclusive rates starting at $4,200 each month. Residents and their family members appreciate a plethora of amenities that include personalized care plans, weekly laundry, housekeeping, transportation, activities and emergency assistance.
The North Chandler independent living boasts five floor plans, while assisted living offers three. Memory care has two floor plans.
“Four out of the five floor plans come with two bathrooms,” Fanning says. “It gives people a guest bathroom, or the spouse a bathroom to themselves. When you compare the square footage and amenities, our price point is outstanding — for the most part, we’re much less expensive than the competitors in our area.”
There is also a skilled nursing and rehabilitation health care center on the North Chandler Place campus. The health care center is ranked among the highest in the state having earned five stars for quality care (visit medicare.gov to learn more). This small health care facility can accommodate rehab-to-home stays, as well as extended care and hospice services.
“North Chandler Place is a mature, established community with a distinct separation of living spaces and care models,” Fanning says.
She continued that the campus of care is different from many big-box retirement communities. “You will not find the glitz and glamour of the newer developments here, but you will find a warm and welcoming feel and the friendliest neighbors around.”
North Chandler Place goes above and beyond to make its residents happy. It offers “all the basics” from bingo to board games to outings to Sedona and Tucson, Fanning says. Guest speakers are featured, and crafts include weaving mats for the homeless. “The most unique feature of our campus is the wonderful residents who call North Chandler home.”
