New senior living complex opens in Chandler


Seniors have a new residential option now that Spectrum Retirement has opened The Enclave at Chandler Senior Living.

Billed as “affordable, amenity-rich living in a scenic, safe and well-cared-for community,” the Enclave, at 4950 W. Chandler Blvd., is a three-story, 165,000-square-foot community with 159 maintenance-free and pet-friendly apartments. That includes 90 independent living units, 45 with assisted living care and 24 memory care residences, ranging in size from studio to two-bedroom apartments.

Spectrum Retirement, a Denver-based developer, has consistently ranked in the top 10 senior living companies for excellence by its residents and their families.

“Spectrum Retirement is one of many developers that recognize the growing demand for senior living in Arizona – Arizona’s Department of Health Services expects the number of Arizonans age 65 and older to increase by 174 percent by 2050,” a spokeswoman said.

Brad Kraus, president and COO of Spectrum Retirement Communities, added, “Today’s senior wants a different kind of living option. The Enclave at Chandler will meet the growing demand in Chandler. Its design, care options, programming, and amenities are specifically tailored to the community.”

The Enclave includes Spectrum’s Residence Club, a step between assisted living and memory care.

“This carefully-designed approach to transitional memory care preserves independence for residents with mild cognitive impairments, as they can stay in their assisted living apartments while receiving additional support from a dedicated life enrichment specialist,” a spokeswoman said.

Amenities include casual and fine dining chefs on hand to prepare meals upon request, a wellness center with exercise equipment and classes, outdoor community gardens, a theater and a full-service salon, as well as trips and events planned by the community’s director of fun.

The Enclave at Chandler Senior Living is one of seven communities in the Valley, which also includes Gardens at Ocotillo Senior Living in Chandler; Las Palomas Senior Living in Mesa and Mountain Park Senior Living in Ahwatukee.

Spectrum’s eighth community in the region, The Enclave at Gilbert Senior Living, is scheduled to open this summer.

The company offers a month-to-month rental program. Information: 480-900-6267.
