Review - Copper Canyon Memory Care, Tucson, AZ My recently deceased wife was a resident of Copper Canyon Memory Care in Tucson, AZ for the past six months. She suffered from dementia and required 24 hour supervision and care. I selected Copper Canyon over some closer facilities because of its small size and unusually stable management of Terri Waldman. My experience with Copper Canyon exceeded all my expectations. Everyone was kind, attentive, positive, friendly to both residents and families and helpful with both. From Ms. Waldman down, the care-givers, Charge nurses, food service personnel and maintenance man-driver were all obviously carefully selected by Ms. Waldman and treated both my wife and me with kindness and respect. She loved the food, was always encouraged to participate in activities and musical presentation and never once asked to be brought back home, only for me to come and live there. After any event - fall, cuts, etc. - the RN immediately notified me and described first aid and other procedures carried out. Our primary care physician was consulted as needed, again with the highest level of cooperation. When my wife began to receive hospice care, Ms. Waldman voluntarily moved her into a beautiful corner private room with two sunny windows. The usual cost of a private room was waived. Care was frequent and attentive and "as needed" pain medication was carefully monitored by the RN, prompt and appropriate. After my wife passed, the Activities Director came to the room and sang the Hawaiian setting of "Over the Rainbow." Inter-actions between hospice and Copper Canyon personnel was quiet, efficient and professional while I received counseling and attention from the hospice chaplain. This was all extremely comforting to a grieving husband. I highly recommend Copper Canyon Memory Care to families in need. Donald J. Behnke

This is by far one of the worst facilities i have ever been in the building has a permanent smell of urine, the rooms are nasty and the management is a joke there staff is under paid, over worked and the facility is ALWAYS under staffed. My advice to anyone who is in need of memory care for a loved one DO NOT bring your loved one to this dreadful place cause it is very likely they will not be cared for properly do your research before even considering this place. If i could give them 0 stars and still do this review i would jus DISGUSTING

My mother's been there for six months. Repeatedly, I've found her asleep in her room late in the day. The last time I showed up to visit at 1:30 in the afternoon I found her asleep in her nightgown, with the shades drawn and the door locked, covered in dried feces. That's the worst incident yet but I'd say it's characteristic of the level of care at Copper Canyon. Staff seems to cycle through constantly. There are few employees who I've seen more than once or twice. I'd strongly recommend that you look elsewhere if you're considering placing a loved one at Copper Canyon.
