We chose Discovery Point because I felt that the all inclusive pay was really good. You get 2 meals, utilities, house keeping once a week, etc. The director is really on top of her game. The apartment sizes are great. We have had no complaints and would recommend to others looking.- September 2021 A Place for Mom Review
I have been working closely with Discovery Point in Mesa and would highly recommend for anyone looking for retirement living. The residents are all so friendly and the staff makes everyone feel like family. Covid regulations are followed for everyone’s safety and they still remain a close nit family.

I came to Discovery Point in 2015 and really enjoyed my apartment all all of the goings on: bus outings and all of the in-house activities. It is a busy and happy life with many friends. After a few years, I moved to where I thought the grass would be greener. Turns out the grass was only newer, not greener. I moved back here. We have the best Activities Director! I love the food.- January 2022 - Resident Evelyn F.
Jim & I just want to compliment the kitchen and food service staff on a wonderful job you do to provide us with delicious food and great service - we just moved in and this was a priority- we are both foodies and love to cook and eat. Thank you! Yum!- October 2021 - Resident Jim & Sheran M.
My mom has only been here 2 months but she is loving it. The folks in marketing and the executive director are very nice and extremely helpful. She was on a waiting list and something opened up early so they called right away to let us know, great with communication. I would definitely recommend Discovery Point to others looking.- February 2022 - Senioradvisor.com
