The Heritage at Carefree, where seniors live in luxury, elegance, comfort
CAREFREE – When seeking senior living for yourself or someone you love, you have to seriously consider a place where the grandkids say they "feel like they are coming to Grandma's castle." The Heritage at Carefree not only looks grand from the outside, but inside residents are treated royally!
The Heritage offers various levels of care. If you no longer want the responsibility of tending to a home, retire and enjoy the good life. There are all sorts of offerings to keep you busy. Partake of beauty/barber services on site. Watch a movie. Do yoga. Embark on a road trip. (Adventures included Vegas, Payson, Sedona, Prescott.) There's lots to do while remaining as independent as you like.
If you or a loved one require more attention, there's both assisted living and skilled care. Owner Donna Holbura (whose husband and son work with her) explained since every person is different, families should call and make appointments for guided tours. Visitors will see firsthand why it's the "Ritz Carlton of senior living."
The Heritage at Carefree is situated on three acres with a lush courtyard and walking paths. With 64 total units, rooms range from 300 to 1,600 square feet. Residents enjoy three nutritious meals in a homey atmosphere. There's an on-call medical team, and x-rays, labs, EKGs can be taken without having to leave home. Added bonuses include pets under 15 lbs. being welcomed (as long as resident can care for it), suites available for visiting family to stay, part-time residency for snowbirds and even happy hours!
Having parents who ran care homes, Holbura grew up in this business, thus she knows the import of assuring those at The Heritage feel like extended family. She greets everyone by name, and that's one benefit of choosing smaller and more intimate. During any time of their retirement lifetime, seniors are welcome to come to The Heritage and stay until the end because the trained staff and various services can accommodate special senescent needs.
