Nestled in the center of a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood, yet right in the heart of historic downtown Mesa is Avista Senior Living Historic Downtown Mesa. An Assisted Living Homes Mesa directly across the street from the Mesa Active Adult Center and within close walking distance of museums, shops, cafes and all downtown Mesa has to offer Avista Senior Living has a location that can't be beat. But a great location isn't the only reason to choose Avista Senior Living Assisted Living Homes Mesa.

This locally owned and managed retirement community offers an individualized, caring approach for both independent and assisted living. A true sense of family permeates throughout Avista Senior Living. With 92 apartments, the community is small enough so every staff member intimately knows each resident, yet we are also large enough to offer a myriad of services and amenities each day.

Life is all about choice and at Avista Senior Living Historic Downtown Assisted Living Homes Mesa, we give our residents plenty to choose from. From all day dining with many delectable entrees to a vibrant activity program, new residents are always amazed at how rich and full their lives become after moving in to Avista Senior Living.   Relieved of housekeeping, home maintenance, and cooking, residents can enjoy a variety of stimulating activities that provide social, educational, religious and recreational opportunities.

Assisted Living

A little assistance goes a long way. Avista offers Assisted Living residents a chance to maintain as much of their independence as possible, while accessing help in the areas they need. Caregivers are available 24/7 to help manage medications, assist with dress and grooming, and to provide companionship and friendship to our residents. We believe in the power and dignity of allowing our residents to do as much for themselves as possible and that is our goal. Our caregivers help to bridge the gaps that may arise with aging while providing in a home like setting. Just like home, our community offers activities and friends to help make each day productive and fun.

Dining Services

We take great pride in our Dining Program at Avista Senior Living. Our Dining Services Director and Head Chef, Vince McNamara, leads trained team members who not only enjoy culinary arts and service but love to serve our residents. They provide a variety of delicious meals throughout the day. Our team can accommodate a variety of specific dietary needs and our servers deliver a smile to each table. Whether it's a made to order breakfast or the many options offered daily, variety is readily available.

Our residents look forward to each meal not only for the delicious food, but for the time to gather with friends. We love having family and friends join with us any day and especially on festive occasions such as birthdays, Thanksgiving, Mother's or Father's Day, etc. Prospective residents are invited to enjoy a complementary meal when they come for a tour of any of our Avista communities!


At Avista, we understand that an active lifestyle is healthy for mind and body. Also, wholesome interaction with others promotes feelings of belonging and friendship. Our activities are geared to the interests, wants, and needs of our residents. With input from our Residents' Council, the Activities Director coordinates and leads a full calendar of activities at our Avista communities.

Thoughts from Avista Activities Director, Melissa Hogue

I am Melissa Hogue and I am the Activities Director at Avista Senior Living Historic Downtown Mesa. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy. I have grown up in Arizona for most of my life and love it here in Mesa. I have been with Avista for over two years. I enjoy interacting with the residents and feel blessed to be a part of the Avista family. I work very hard to make the activities enriching, fun, and therapeutic. I know my efforts help to increase the quality of our residents' lives. When I bring a smile to someone's face and make a difference, it makes all the difference to me!


Avista residents enjoy a balance of independence and assistance.  Basic housekeeping services come in handy and the Team Members in our housekeeping department are helpful and kind.  Who wouldn’t enjoy a visit from a friend who comes to help tidy up?
