Seniors will soon have a new residential option in Gilbert.

Spectrum Retirement plans to open the Enclave at Gilbert Senior Living this summer on Sout Val Vista Drive at Queen Creek Road, near Perry High School.

Billed as “affordable, amenity-rich living in a scenic, safe and well-cared-for community,” it will come on the heels of the recent opening of The Enclave of Chandler. It will be 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” and said the Enclave model meets a growing demand.

Its design, care options, programming and amenities are specifically tailored to the communities they serve.

The Enclave at Gilbert will include 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.

In addition to the facilities in Gilbert and Chandler, Spectrum also runs the Gardens at Ocotillo Senior Living in Chandler, Las Palomas Senior Living in Mesa and Mountain Park Senior Living in Ahwatukee.

The Gilbert facility will be Spectrum’s eighth community in the Valley.

No opening date has yet been set for the Enclave at Gilbert.

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