A 7.5-acre residential campus in Tucson’s Catalina Footfills, The Hacienda is a unique community for individuals seeking exceptional Assisted Living, Memory Care, Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing and Hospice Care with unprecedented access to cutting-edge university-based clinical care, programming and research. Designed on the traditions of the colonial hacienda, the grounds featurea buildings interconnected by tree-lined pathways and interspersed with patios, shaded courtyards, gardens and orchards with classic Spanish Colonial design that is common to Tucson’s architecture.

Two New Concepts in Senior Care


Just as in traditional guest ranches, the design of the four, single-story Hacienda Homes are home to Assisted Living and Memory Care residents and capture that careful balance between private home and community. Residents’ private suites will radiate off a nexus of common spaces: kitchen, dining room, living room, sunroom and covered porch.

Care in the Hacienda Homes is unlike that found in more traditional assisted living communities. Universal caregivers, called Nayas, are the anchor of the day-to-day structured rhythms of each resident’s life. Nayas are responsible for all aspects of a resident’s well-being, performing nearly ALL of the tasks generally associated with a quality assisted living environment.


Short- and long-term rehabilitative care, as well as hospice care, for persons of any age is provided at The Springs. Designed to be unlike any traditional nursing home in Tucson (or Arizona for that matter), The Springs provides rehabilitative care in a hotel-like setting. In addition to spacious private suites for guests, this two-story building includes a beautiful restaurant dining venue, espresso café, a theater, a clubroom, meeting rooms and a variety of indoor and outdoor living room spaces.

Rehabilitative care offered at The Springs includes the more traditional physical, occupational and speech therapies offered at most rehab centers but also less traditional, more cutting-edge offerings such as equine-assisted therapeutic programming at Hacienda’s on-site equine center, aquatic therapy and other holistic treatments including acupuncture, meditation and massage therapies.

A Healthcare Collaborative

Several pioneers within the University of Arizona and the Tucson healthcare community are joining in an interdisciplinary collaboration centered at The Hacienda. Integrative programs and therapies are seamlessly folded into each resident’s day.
