As  families gather this holiday season, senior living experts at 

Maravilla Scottsdale encourage older adults to engage in open, honest discussions about their well-being and future care needs with their adult children and whether a retirement community setting is an option they may wish to consider.

According to Bob Bailey, executive director of Maravilla Scottsdale, no matter how independent, vibrant and self-sufficient someone may be today, the question of “what if” lingers. The financial responsibility and possible care needs of a loved one can take a toll on the whole family. 

“With planning and the knowledge of all available resources, the family can find peace of mind, said Bob Bailey. “The subject may not be an easy one to broach, but we can help families tackle this complex subject, allowing folks to make better informed decisions.”

Bob Bailey suggests that previewing retirement communities with family members can jump-start difficult conversations about future needs.  Scheduling visits to learn more about the lifestyle and services offered within senior living environments can provide family members with tremendous insight into a senior’s preferences, as well as educate the entire family as to the various housing and care options available.

Maravilla Scottsdale, for example, offers accredited independent living, assisted living and memory care programs. Accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), a three-year CARF accreditation parallels a five-star rating in the hospitality industry.

Here, independent seniors seeking maintenance-free living to complement their active and engaging lifestyle can choose from a variety of spaciously designed casitas and courtyard homes in a resort-style atmosphere. When needs change and grow, residents enjoy the assurance of quality care and services offered at Maravilla’s licensed assisted living and memory care. 

Learn more about the lifestyle offered at Maravilla Scottsdale at our upcoming Lunch & Learn on Thursday, December 13th at 11:30am. RSVP for lunch and a personal tour by calling 480-269-1952 or visit
