As a person in my sixties, I expect to optimize my retirement, in a bright, cheerful environment, filled with activities and surrounded by smiling faces and culinary delights. Then get ready for the best of all worlds- enter into ACOYA Troon. A senior living facility, located in the vibrant community of North Scottsdale, only yards from Pinnacle Peak. The first thing I experienced upon entering through the front door was a common area with windows from floor to ceiling. That bright and cheerful mood pervaded after meeting staff there to serve your beck and call and striving to make every resident (and visitor) to feel esteemed and welcomed. The views were spectacular from twenty-two hundred feet but especially more beautiful at night with views of the city lights. After I took a tour through a modern apartment home with balcony (more spacious and definitely more than just efficient) I snuck off and found myself on one of the multi-level floors bumping into a smiling resident ( nice to see people happy) and occasional staff. I came upon a room filled with art. I discovered that several residents had painted and sculpted each piece and encouraged by ACOYA to express their creative side. As for the food-if the food I tasted is their everyday fare, watch out Four Seasons. Speaking of resort-style living this was the ultimate in culinary experience. I think you can add ACOYA Troon on that list of life on earth and closer to living like Heaven,
I am proud to be the Community Relations Director here at Acoya Troon. Every day I get to work at this community and enjoy our residents enjoying their best life. My colleagues also make this by far one of my most rewarding positions in my working life.
I am a Senior Care Manager and have worked with many communities. I recently moved a client from her prior care community to Acoya Troon to follow the Executive Director and RN who provide top notch care - The Best I have ever seen. I don't think many people know that some care communities max out on care options in Assisted Living and start pushing your loved ones to an early trip to Memory Care. They do this because it's more affordable to provide care in that setting. This happened to my client and it's just not time for her. She has too much life left to live! Yes, Acoya Troon is beautiful. Yes, they have great food, amenities, and activities. But in this case, Beauty Is Not Skin Deep. They also provide the best care I've ever seen and will continue to allow my client to gracefully age in place. When looking for a care community for your loved one, please make sure you have a complete understanding of the level and cost of care available in Assisted Living before you make your choices. Or, just go to Acoya. Here is my client celebrating her 90th birthday a few days after move-in. I think this says it all.

When Acoya Troon opened in November 2020 I was the first to move into this exquisitely decorated facility sitting amongst million-dollar properties between Pinnacle Peak and Troon Mountain in northern Scottsdale. The scenery is beautiful in every direction. The neighborhood once included Pinnacle Peak Patio, Reata Pass, and Greasewood Flats, eliciting fond entertainment memories for many of us, and my current windows overlook the tops of the fabulous Four Seasons Resort. A beautiful, historical, and well-established neighborhood. After moving away for a few months, I realized the many advantages I was missing and recently returned home to Acoya. My Acoya family---staff and fellow residents---graciously welcomed me back into their busy, fun schedule of activities. Friends visiting from other facilities are amazed at the casual personal interactions between staff and residents, at the variety of opportunities for being active (both from personal interests and physical abilities perspectives), and at the high levels of participation by residents. Staff are well-trained professionally, obviously enjoy working here (low attrition rates), and all their energies are directed toward maintaining interests and participation in the activities and supporting residents’ needs. As we aging residents enjoy the physical activities, mental challenges, and camaraderie of constant peer involvement, we are also cognizant of the risks involved within the aging process. Although many here are “independent” residents, we all know that---regardless of our personal classification at Acoya--- if we need personal assistance, it will be available immediately. Every resident has a pendant or bracelet call button for summoning help, motion sensors are monitored to be sure we are moving within our apartments, and rigid procedures are in place whenever an emergency occurs. Well-trained concierges and caregivers work 24/7. This provides a level of security not possible in any other type of living arrangement, and Acoya has the best program I have seen anywhere.
Acoya Troon is the best community I have ever had the pleasure of working at. I been working here for over a year and a half working in this senior communities and a few more but not one has ever come close to the caring of residents and staff that Acoya offers. I am so proud to be a part of such a wonderful community!
