A state-of-the-art senior-living community will enter the metro-Phoenix market this winter when The Statesman Group breaks ground on the $50 million, 287,000 square-foot facility, The Manor Village of Desert Ridge.

This is the second Ariz. location for The Manor brand and 12th among Statesman’s Canadian and U.S. portfolio. As a family owned and operated company, Statesman is unique in the senior-care industry as they design, build and manage all of their senior-care centers. The Manor Village at Scottsdale, located at 9160 E. Desert Cove Ave., opened in 1997. Next week, Statesman will reveal a $1 million renovation on the property bringing a new look and feel to all of the common areas along with an expanded fitness center.

Located on Deer Valley Road between 52nd and 56th streets, The Manor Village of Desert Ridge will offer a collection of 196 independent-living, assisted-living and memory-care suites that feature a variety of floorplans ranging in size from 446 to 1,043 square feet. Independent-living suites will be equipped with a full kitchen, stackable washer and dryer and a state-of-the-art, emergency call and response system. Residents will also have access to a robust lineup of amenities. Statesman will break ground this winter with expected completion by early 2020.

“The creation and development of The Manor Village Life Centers is one of Statesman’s proudest endeavors. The concept was created with my grandmother in mind after my father searched, without success, for a senior-living community that would preserve her independence and quality of life,” said Alana Mann, president and owner of The Statesman Group. “With this expansion, we look forward to providing quality care to aging adults in North Scottsdale and Phoenix with access to some of the best medical care in the state just one mile away at Mayo Clinic.”

Each Manor Village Life Center offers a tailored experience for residents with a variety of professional services including a mobility specialist to create custom exercises suitable for seniors; a health and wellness team who personalize wellness plans; an executive chef and culinary team to prepare balanced, gourmet meals using local, farm-fresh ingredients; a massage therapist; a sleep expert; and a pharmacist experienced in geriatric medicine. Residents also have access to a wide range of weekly activities from yoga and Tai Chi classes to fun social events and off-site outings.
