Individualized care plans and personalized attention in a place you can call home.
The Health Care Center at Sun Valley Lodge is licensed by the State of Arizona Department of Health Services for those in need of 24 hour care, including memory care. Residents may enjoy private rooms, three meals a day, snacks, and housekeeping. Although rooms are furnished, residents are encouraged to bring favorite items to personalize their new home. Sun Valley Lodge also provides complimentary transportation to local medical appointments for our Health Care Center residents.
Our Activity staff provides a wide array of programs and activities geared to the ability of each resident. And, we are proud of the fact that several of our direct care staff have worked at the Lodge for over twenty years, displaying a dedication that is seldom seen anywhere!
By choice, our Health Care Center is not Medicare-certified. However, we will always help arrange a temporary transfer to an insurance covered rehabilitation center if it is medically recommended. Then upon return to Sun Valley Lodge, your therapy can be continued and billed to Medicare Part A, Part B or other insurance when ordered by your physician. Sun Valley Lodge contracts with several hospice organizations to offer routine hospice care.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are my choices for physician care at Sun Valley Lodge?
You can certainly choose to have your primary care physician remain in charge of your care. If it would be more convenient, you may elect to have your care provided by one of the physicians who regularly visit Sun Valley Lodge.
Do you work with residents in need of memory care?
Yes! Many of our residents have memory and cognitive related needs and our staff is trained to provide care in cases of Alzheimer’s Disease and other mild dementias. However, Sun Valley Lodge is not a locked unit. Aggressive behaviors and serious risks for outside elopement may be better served at facilities with locked and secured units.
Will my insurance pay for my stay?
Long Term Care Insurance is accepted at the Sun Valley Lodge Health Care Center. Sun Valley Lodge is a private pay facility which means that we do not accept Medicare, ALTCS (Arizona Long Term Care System), or HMO coverage.

Yes. We post a notice in our Health Care Center on where to find the most recent survey results. Or, you can visit the Arizona Department of Health Services website at Survey Search to view online.
