I have enjoyed the past 15 months at Thunderbird Senior Living because it provides me with comfortable and safe living without the maintenance of a house. I especially appreciate the large clothing and storage closets, the thorough apartment cleaning provided every two weeks, the trash pick-up Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and the washer/dryer combination just around the corner from my apartment. Because I have severe allergies, I also appreciate the individual air conditioning unit with replaceable filters and an individual thermostat. There is a huge selection of activities daily (including exercise classes 5 days a week) and the freedom to participate in those of interest to you.

I toured several places and found this to be the best place for my Mom. I think at first the main reasons being because all the room's exit into a main hallway, not to the outside. I liked this for more security and safety. The rooms/apartments have a space right outside the door that you can decorate as a porch which was super cool. My Mom had two chairs and a table in her area and people would stop and sit to take a rest which would allow my Mom to meet new friends easily. The main hallway actually wraps around the entire building so on days it's not good to walk outside, a walking group will walk the halls on each level. This is also good for those that like to walk but shouldn't walk outside due to wandering. The staff is super friendly, nice and caring. They all make it an effort to know all the residents well and make them feel welcomed. They have lots of things to do also which helped keep my Mom busy. They have planned travel days to various stores and outings via their buses. They also will provide transportation to and from Doctor Appointment within the area. The rooms were very nice, clean, looked brand new for an older building. They had front door peep-holes and door bells, like an actual apartment. They provide local phone service and a 24 hour emergency alert necklaces for the tenants, but wi-fi you need to provide yourself (we got a discounted plan for $20 a month with Cox). The restaurant (I call it) is just like a restaurant. The meals change and you get a nice, customized, bound menu when you go to eat. Two meals a day is standard but you can purchase a third. There are also other services you can purchase if needed. Family is encouraged to visit for meals and the food is good. There is also on-site assistance services you can hire to help administer medication, take blood pressure, take on personal shopping trips, etc. My Mom really liked that they have happy hour every Friday at 4:30 and friends and family are welcome. Makes it a great opportunity to meet the other residents and staff. The inner exterior area of the facility is really nice and welcoming. One side has a heated pool and golf putting area, and the other side has a large pond area complete with turtles and ducks. Lots of places to sit outside and enjoy good weather. I wish my Mom could have stayed longer, but her condition worsened rapidly, but the facility accepted our 30 day notice of vacating before the year contract was up with no issues (due to declining health). Oh, you can have small pets here too, though my Mom didn't. It's definitely worth checking out.

Thunderbird Senior living use to be a great place to have your loved ones live, and also a great company to work for until Senior lifestyle took over! Ever since new Management took over it has gone down hill, less activities, prices constantly going up nothing extra to show for it. They use to take pride in there food now its Mosley all frozen pre packaged food. No flavor food is always cold. We use to have a great Chef when he left the kitchen went down hill. Management is a joke! Can never be found ,always screwing around in there offices. The Ed and HR are besties witch definitely gets in the way of a professional work environment.Hr keeps nothing confidential, a lot of the employees called corporate nothing is ever done! but with all the complaints, and move outs the past few months maybe that will get someones attention. They don't even have a Chef,or a Dining room Manager at the moment. I get calls and tx that the place is falling apart! schedules are a mess, always short, no one around to help and I don't even work there anymore. Yet I get calls to come back! And show the management team how its done! A lot of the employees are never appreciated, for the hard work they do. The Ed does not know how to run the place she lets her emotions get the better of her always yelling! accusing people of stuff that never even happend! I've called everyone at corporate and no one seems to care please don't ever send your love one here they deserve more! And there are plenty of better facilities,All these people care about is your $$ and if you need a job look elsewhere they will work you till they don't need you and then kick you to the curb, there are plenty of good jobs out there. Hope this helped for who ever is looking.

I would not recommend working here they do expect you to work on lunch breaks when it comes to their overnight staff whether you're clocked out or clocked in you're also expected to stay past your shift if a callout does occur at or what the reason There is never a supervisor available to reach on the weekends let alone in the early morning which means you could be stuck there 5 to 6 hours past your scheduled time after working a 10 hour shift and if you do leave you will be terminated on account of a abandoning shift it is a good job if you have no family or medical appointments and can just work consistently I would not recommend working in the front desk management over that has had multiple problems you are also expected to do other jobs such as maintenance medical and more without any proper training
