Anthem Senior Manor is just a blessing for our family. We know that Dad is being extremely well taken care of and it’s a family atmosphere. We celebrated Dad’s 89th Birthday will all his friends and family and he was so Happy….. definitely highly recommend!
Unfortunately my father spent over 5 years in assisted living homes so I have seen some good ones and some not so good ones. Please take it from me that THE ONLY place I would ever consider my parents (or God forbid me if the time came) staying in would Anthem Senior Manor. Tracey and Sam are so wonderful to work with and they truly care. My mom tells me all the time that the staff is so good to her and the food is fantastic that she feels like she is living in a resort. I cannot recommend them enough and we are blessed to have found them.
My wife has been at Senior Sanctuary of Anthem for almost 5 months. I was caregiver for over 2 years but it became too much for me to handle so the family started looking for an assisted living arrangement. My mother had spent 4 years in a good assisted living facility, so I thought I knew what to look for. After finding several good options, we came across Senior Sanctuary of Anthem and upon visiting we were amazed we were with what we saw! There was nothing institutional looking about it. It is a beautiful house inside and out. We moved her in as soon as possible to see what we thought. Now after having her there and visiting almost everyday for these 5 months I feel I can leave an informed review. I can’t imagine a better situation for my wife. The owner, Sam, sets a high standard for himself, his staff and the house. He is involved in running the home and has no stockholders to please. The only people he has to please are the residents, their families and his staff. The home is well taken care of inside and out. The back yard is almost like a park where families can take their loved one outside to talk and breathe fresh air. The staff, honestly, is amazing! And the house is well staffed with competent, caring people. They fix real meals, the cooks are great! A very caring and competent nurse is often at the house. When she isn’t there she is only minutes away at one of Sam’s two other homes in the neighborhood. There is a house Doc who regularly checks up on the people staying there. I never worry about my wife getting her meds because there is a meds supervisor who distributes the meds or supervises the people who distribute the meds. Every staff member there is my favorite! When my wife presses her “button”, someone is at her room within a minute, usually less. They are all people who I think really love the residents they work with! I could go on for pages about how wonderful the home and all of the people giving care there are. My wife would rather be at home with me, but she realizes that isn’t possible and told me, “If I can’t be at home I can’t think of a better place for me to be.” I tell people, “My Mom was in a good assisted living situation, my wife is in a great one!” at Senior Sanctuary of Anthem.

On Saturday, June 17, 2023, our sister/niece returned to her Heavenly Home to be reunited with her father, mother, and other loved ones in God’s kingdom. She was so very loved by her family and friends and will be missed by all of us. However, we are comforted that she will be at peace surrounded by Love and Goodness.
During her last days on this earth, she was critically ill and she was aware that her time with us was limited. Nevertheless, she maintained a sense of optimism and humor. Her family attempted to provide an environment that ensured personal care, cleanliness, and a degree of cheerfulness. We were “Blessed” to find these qualities in the staff at Anthem Senior Manor.
We are particularly grateful to you and the members of your staff for all your efforts in providing Kristy with a comfortable and caring environment during her time at Anthem. You were always gracious to visiting family members, responsive to Kristy’s needs, and accomplished these tasks in a loving way. It’s impossible to find the right words to properly express our gratitude other than our heartfelt THANKS for caring for someone that we deeply loved.
On behalf of the Hobbes family, we wish to thank you for your love and care that you extended to Kathryn. I know that her visit was short but we appreciate the care and tenderness your team provided. Thank you again for your kind thoughts and prayers. Regards Bill, John, Bonnie & Kathleen
Sam recently assisted us with a family that was looking to relocate their loved one from out of state. Their thoroughness and professionalism ensured a safe and seamless transition for the family. I’ve seen and worked with hundreds of care homes over the past few years and from my vantage point Anthem Senior Homes sets a high standard for the industry. For example, It’s rare to see a robust activities program in many residential care settings, but Anthem Senior Homes conducts them daily, even bringing in live music on a regular basis. The homes are beautiful and the staffing ratios are above industry standard which allows them to provide a high level of care with rapid response times when urgent needs arise. Sam, you are great to work with, thank you for all that you and your staff are doing for the families and their loved ones within your communities. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Sam and the staff at Senior Sanctuary have been a godsend during one of most difficult in our lives. We are grateful for the care and compassion they have shown not only to our mom but our family as well as we navigate this new and challenging road. We highly recommend them to anyone seeking a safe, calming, beautiful place for an aging loved one. We are thankful from the bottom of our hearts!
I have written reviews before but, none as important as this one. My Mother is currently living at one of Sam’s homes. It was one of the hardest decisions our family has ever had to make. Not because we heard awful things about Sam’s homes, actually just the opposite. We tried to keep my Mother in her home after my Father/Grandpa had passed, with a 24 hour caregiver. My Mother became more confused, agitated, and extremely depressed. She also lost a significant amount of weight. We met with Sam, Tracy, Jordin, and Ernesto and instantly knew the only place we would ever want our Mother/Grandma to live was with them. It was heart breaking trying to explain to my Mom why she could no longer take care of herself. It took her a few weeks to adjust to her new, beautiful and loving home. She now she refers to the house as her home. She has also put a little weight on thanks to the delicious and healthy meals combined with a patient and loving environment. Each and every person in her new home has shown her so much love and kindness. Tracy takes her to workout at “her gym” 3 times per week, she helps Jordin & Ernesto prepare meals, set the table, goes grocery shopping and loves “working” in her beautiful yard & garden. ASL has given my Mom a purpose to live. We truly feel our Mom/ Grandma is there to live her life, not to die. There are no other facilities like ASL anywhere. Sam’s homes are nothing like nursing homes or memory care institutions. When I talk to my Mom on the phone she brags about her new home, laughs, is pleasant and always has “something” to do. Prior to moving in to her ASL home my Mom would sit home with nothing to do, she felt overwhelmed and could not even imagine a future without her husband. I am finally able to sleep through the night without waking up in a panic worrying about all the awful things that could be happening with or to my Mom. I will be forever grateful to Sam and the caring, compassionate people at my “Mom’s home”:)! Thank you! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart! ASL homes set the standard for how every loved one should be taken care of in their Golden Years:)
I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful care that Sam and all the staff at Anthem Senior Living (ASL) provided to my mother. She was 79 years old and quite sick when she entered ASL. They cared for her as if she were their own mother. They were kind and compassionate. Our family rested easier knowing that our mother was receiving the highest quality of care. If I needed assisted living myself, I would hope my family would place me with ASL, as I cannot image there are other places that attend to their residents’ needs with the care and attentiveness that ASL showed to my mother. My siblings and I are eternally grateful for the help we received with our mom. We highly recommend ASL without reservation. If you have need for senior care for a loved one, you cannot go from with ASL.
