Copper Canyon – Tucson, Arizona Senior Apartments

Why Copper Canyon is the right place for your loved one

Copper Canyon is one of the most welcoming facilities for senior care Tucson has to offer. Our all-inclusive senior living center is more than a transitional assisted living and memory care unit. These senior homes in Tucson will provide your loved one with a safe, comfortable, place to call home.

The Copper Canyon staff will not only look after the physical needs of your senior or memory patient, but they will also focus on the emotional side of aging as well. Our staff is trained to provide a happy and peaceful environment for our guests because that’s what we would want for our own loved ones.

Although there are plenty of other senior homes in Tuscon, Copper Canyon is the most modern facility around.

As you will see from the floor plans on our website, residents and their families can choose among private, semi-private, and shared suites. Our facilities are set up to provide privacy and encourage independence for as long as possible. In fact, each apartment comes with safety pull cords so our staff can be available to your loved one at a moment’s notice.

If you are looking for dementia or Alzheimer’s care close to Tuscon, fairly close to Phoenix Arizona or  anywhere else in the metro area or in, schedule a tour of Copper Canyon.

  • The Setting

    The Copper Canyon memory care facility is located within minutes of Tuscon’s best hospitals. We are also centrally located among convenient shopping areas and parks as well.

    Our Tuscon retirement apartments are located on attractive, well-tended grounds. Your loved one will be able to enjoy cooler Arizona mornings while strolling through the outdoor walking paths. Our outdoor area is enclosed for our residents’ safety. We also ask our residents to wear tracking bracelets to make sure they can be located easily.

  • The Services

    Our Copper Canyon staff of our Alzheimer’s, Memory Care, and Transitional Care programs are dedicated to offering top-notch, loving care to your senior or memory care patient.

    One way we show attention to our residents is by providing healthy gourmet meals. We have regular dining hours, but we also offer delicious snacks 24 hours a day. We know how important proper nutrition is for the elderly. We will cater to your loved one’s specific dietary needs and tastes.

    Since most of our residents at Copper Canyon suffer from memory issues, we follow the Rush University Medical Center’s MIND diet that fosters brain health.

    We will keep your loved one busy. Copper Canyon offers classes in Armchair Yoga and Strength Training, both of which are designed for our senior friends. We also provide outside activities such as time to toss a ball or to play a friendly game of horseshoes.

    We have dance socials once a month and host visits from therapy dogs two times a month.
