Red Rock Pointe Retirement Community, with its dramatic desert location in Spring Valley, may be just what you’ve been looking for as your next luxury living option in retirement. When the professional staff takes care of everything with one base price, the value built into a long list of amenities sets them apart. With live-in managers, 24/7 concierge services, a medical alert system, flexible dining, meal delivery, weekly housekeeping, and free scheduled transportation, all you need to do is consult the monthly calendar of events and plan your day.

There’s so much going on, from strength training to yoga, movie nights and brain fitness games, grief support, Bible study, Shabbat services, and social hours. There is a fully equipped fitness center, billiard and ping pong tables, a library, a computer center, and a state-of-the-art theater with frequent concerts, movies, shows, and church services. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping with its proximity to the Grand Canyon Mall and outings like the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and the Mob Museum. The community bus can be scheduled to take you to doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, and other medical facilities. But if you still own a car, valet service is available.

At the heart of Red Rock Pointe Retirement Community is ‘Main Street’ with a pharmacy, salon, gift shop, and fee-based home care support for your ultimate convenience. Ensuring the highest level of security, Red Rock Pointe is professionally staffed 24 hours a day, provides all residents with a call pendant connected to the central emergency response system, and controls public access by locking all doors at night. However, residents always have 24-hour access to come and go as they please.

When you need to escape to your private quarters, the 13 different floor plans give you plenty of options, with no buy-in fees and no long-term leases. Choose from a studio to a three-bedroom apartment with more than 1,200 square feet and everything in between. Some units even have patios or balconies, and all have plenty of closet space. With fully open kitchens featuring custom cabinets and designer countertops, you can still bake cookies with the grandkids and make pancakes for breakfast when they stay overnight.

Speaking of grandkids, there’s a designated room where your most important visitors can play with toys. Do you have a furry friend too? Hey, they’re family! Cats, small dogs, and other animals are always welcome, and there’s no pet deposit. Plus, you’ll have plenty of room for walks and playtime, including waste pickup stations for your convenience.

The Freedom Dining program is a popular amenity among the residents because it mimics the dining experience of a luxury resort with professional chefs, flexible hours, and plenty of snacks available in between three nutritious meals a day. Made-to-order pizzas and sandwiches are available all day long, and if you just don’t feel like being social or aren’t feeling well, you can call the front desk and have a meal delivered. But don’t miss out on the popular Sunday Brunch, where you can invite family members to join you while enjoying reasonable guest meal rates.

Red Rock Pointe’s Community Manager, Glenn Jordan, says the all-inclusive lifestyle is like “a cruise ship on land” with every imaginable pastime, entertainment, dining, and a variety of services all in one location. And since utilities, cable and internet are all included, life is hassle-free. When you leave the cooking, cleaning, and everything else to the staff, you can spend time doing whatever makes you happy.

Parent company, Resort Lifestyle Communities, has a popular travel program. In all its communities across the country, from Maine to Florida and New York to Arizona, they maintain a luxury guest suite that residents can reserve in their own community for visitors (for a small fee) and can also book themselves into any other community at no charge. What a great way to vacation in dozens of cities while enjoying all-inclusive meals and activities. Concierge Services can check availability and arrange everything.

Red Rock Pointe Retirement Community takes great pride in recognizing what brings a smile to your face every day. To explore the community, consider attending one of the events in March that are open to the public:

·         Cocktails + Crafts, Wednesday, March 8 at 2:00 p.m., a DIY workshop with handcrafted cocktails.

·         Ides of March Banquet, Wednesday, March 14 at 5:30 p.m., a Greco-Roman menu with wine.

Why? Because you've earned it!

With so many amenities, this facility has been compared to a cruise ship on land.
