In order to find the top assisted living communities in the Phoenix area, our team of researchers sorted through 454 communities using our unique methodology. Our team:

  • Spent over 39 hours researching assisted living communities in Phoenix
  • Interviewed 19 facility staff members
  • Read more than 205 reviews left by residents and their family members

After filtering out facilities that didn’t meet our high standards, we were left with 26 assisted living communities that earned our seal of approval. Through this process we discovered that the average cost of assisted living in the city of Phoenix is $3,500, which is slightly lower than the state average of $3,750 and the national average of $4,000.
