Mom has lived at AZ Life for eight months. When the time came for mom to move to assisted living I was concerned about the care she would receive at a assisted living facility. Mom has many allergies especially with food. Effie and Igor are very accommodating when it comes to my moms dietary needs. Every meal is fresh and homemade. They make sure that mom gets the food she needs as well as ensuring that it is nutritious and tasty. The home is impeccably clean. Every thing is organized from food menus to medicine. The weekly activities keep the residents active and engaged. Effie goes out of her way to make the residents feel like family with celebrating holidays and birthdays. My mom is happy there and I am happy that she is getting excellent care.

Effie and Igor are beyond wonderful. If you are looking for a place for your loved one…look no further. BOTH of my 90+ parents spent their days here. Always so very clean, inviting and comfortable. And efficient with food and medications. Igor, those beautiful meals! And Effie, so nurturing! Always party decorations for holidays and birthdays. And a beautiful therapy dog too! Thank you for all that you did in their final years. You gave them happiness.


Caring for a loved one from long distant in their final years often comes with many unique challenges. I personally am so gratefully to have found AZ Life & Efimia to help support our family member’s needs. Her home is absolutely top notch in the Sun City/Peoria area when it comes to cleanliness, quality of food, and personal care for her residents. The love, compassion, care, social programs, and flexibility she offers her live in residents is unmatched throughout private assisted living homes. Efimia, her staff, and entire family were the best decision we could have made! We thank you for all of the one-on-one love you offered to our dear family member. Love, Jerry Boudreau

Thank you Lu for the care you gave my mother in her last months. She spent her remaining days in comfort with individualized attention. Though we had to do our best with Covid-19 restrictions, you managed to give the entire family enough access to my Mom for everyone to be at peace with her passing. I would highly recommend your care home to anyone seeking care for an elderly family member with multiple needs.

This is a wonderful home, well run and my mother received excellent care here at AZ Life. During these difficult times when I could not be there for my mother, I knew that her health and social needs were throughly taken care of. The hospice nurses even commented on what an excellent job was done at AZ Life! I highly recommend this residence and the care that will be given to your loved one will be great.

Our mother spent the last year at Arizona life. We as a family can’t express how much we appreciate all the hard work and the love they showed her till the very end. Their home is beautiful and cleaner than even mine and very “homey” with all the extra touches. You never walk in without smelling something yummy cooking. Thanks to the whole staff for the care they of my mother.

AZ Life Assisted Living home has been a true blessing and pleasure to collaborate with when it comes to transitioning our clients into their home and under their supervision and care. Efi, Igor, and Ludmila are incredibly kind, diligent, attentive to detail, and have hearts of gold. They genuinely care for all of their residents, whom quickly become part of their family. I’ve personally known the owners/managers for close to a decade, and I can honestly state that their compassion and huge hearts, professionalism, and customer-service is unparalleled. I would HIGHLY recommend their residential care home to anyone in need of QUALITY and peace of mind services. Your loved one will be taken care of with utmost respect and dignity. As a senior living and care advocate and advisor, I’ve personally visited hundreds of residential care homes throughout Maricopa county, Arizona, and AZ Life Assisted Living home is amongst my top preferences as I know with 100% certainty that our clients will receive the highest standards of care, compassion, and attention based on their unique care needs and preferences.

My Mom has been living at AZ Life Assisted Living for one year and I am so thankful for Effie and Igor. My mom has had the best care I could have asked for. This is such a loving environment with so much care and attention to every detail. I have never worried about my Mom and that peace of mind is worth everything!! Thank you so much Effie and Igor, we truly appreciate you both.

My mother has been in this group home now for 2 1/2 years. Their house is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in. They have such a beautiful, organized clean home. I trust Effie and Igor completely with my mother’s care. Effie and Igor care about all their residents as though they are all one big family. They have activities for the residents and the food always smells so good. I recommend AZ Life for anyone who is looking for someone to care for their loved.

My Mother has lived at AZ Life Assisted Living for the past 3 years. AZ Life Assisted Living has been a saving grace for my Mother & my entire family. The owners over the years, Effie, Igor, & their daughter Ludmila have been nothing short of awesome and we now consider them family. They are the kindest and most loving people you will ever meet. The house is beautiful, spotless at all times and full of love. Now a little bit about the services that AZ Life Assisted Living provides. They do medication management, personal laundry, provide incredible meals throughout the day (Igor should be a chef), provide numerous activities for their guest, bathing, dressing, grooming, & bathroom assistance, daily housekeeping, healthcare provider communications, and any other services as needed. In summary, my family has not had one issue or concern for our Mother’s care/health in the past 3 years. AZ Life Assisted Living is #1 to our family and we highly recommend them.

I’m not sure I have enough praise words to describe the care my mother got in Effie and her teams care. My mother was in her care for 17 months. She treated her like she was a member of her family. She made sure my mom had the greatest lady from Hospice care to take care of all her health issues. Effie went out of her way to make sure mom was comfortable, did special feminine things like paint her nails and did her hair. Mom had some skin issues when we took her to Effies and with in days Effie had her all cleared up. She would make sure that every Sat to set up FaceTime so mom could talk to us as we lived out of state. We were always treated as special guest when we came for a visit. My mother loved it there and I never saw her without a smile on her face. Effie’s home is beautiful and decorated for beauty and peacefulness. and very clean. Mom had special food needs and they always made sure her food was fixed so she could enjoy it like everyone else. If anyone is in need of rAssisted Living you would never find a better, more loving, caring place. They’re will always be a special place in my heart for AZ Life Assisted Living


My grandmother was a resident here at AZ Life Assisted Living. She had fallen and injured herself at home and we were forced to find a place for her to live. As a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Dept, I am all too familiar with group homes that fall short of giving any sort of loving, good care. So needless to say, I was worried about moving her to a group home. The minute I stepped foot in the door of Effie’s home, I knew this was the place for my grandmother. Not only is the home spotless clean but Effie and her husband Igor and daughter Ludmila, were so friendly and kind. Over the next six months, Effie and Igor provided such wonderful care to grandmother. During this time, Grandmother started declining with dementia, and Effie and Igor went to great lengths to make sure she was kept safe, well-fed, and well-cared for. They brought in musical entertainment, and even decorated their house at the Holidays, I could tell, even though grandmother had dementia, that she loved Effie and Igor. Sadly, grandmother passed away in January but she literally passed away in Effie’s arms. I could not have asked for a better way for my grandmother to leave this world but in the arms of someone who truly cared so much for her. They will always hold a special place in the heart of my family for the kindness they showed my grandmother. I highly recommend AZ Assisted Living for your loved one.

Effie, Igor and Ludmila cared for my very frail 93 yo Mom for over 2 1/2 years. She was no longer able to live alone following a fall and head injury. She was treated with respect and loving care. She was always well groomed and the meals beautifully prepared by Igor, well balanced and always fresh proteins vegetables and fruit, homemade soups (which she loved) and healthy breakfast. Mom loved music and classic movies which they always assured she was able to watch and listen to. All Holidays and Birthdays were fun–special treats, cakes (and fresh flowers were a norm) along with live entertainment and Christmas decor that was beautiful and homey. Effie always kept up great communication and worked well with Mom’s hospice when her health declined. In fact, she was so well cared for, she graduated from Hospice at one point. I know Effie and Igor loved my Mom and Effie attended Mom’s Memorial Service. This is a business they are well suited for and show it in their commitment to care and dignity of all of their residents. As a geriatric social worker, I wish all older adults the care my precious Mom received at Az Life ALH.


I am blessed to have Az life Assisted living with Effie and Igor taking care of my mom. It came time to put my mom in 24 hour care and I chose Effie and Igor because my mother in law was there and has been very happy for 2 years. The meals are excellent and nutritional. Also, they give my mom so much love and do her nails and hair and makeup to make her feel better and special. The home is beautiful. Each person has an individual room that is personalized with their pictures and belongings to make them feel at home. They also monitor their medications .I can’t say enough good things about this place and highly recommend it.

My mom lived here for 7 month, until her passing. She received to best care possible. Effie and Igor are wonderful, caring, loving people. I only wish I had found this home sooner for my mom. my mother always had clean clothes on, never had a odor and smiled. Effie did a fantastic job, there were times my mom could be difficult. The aroma from cooking the meals smelled wonderful, if you wern’t hungry when you arrived to visit your loved one, you were hungry when you left, I can’t say enough about the wonderful care they provide. I highly recommend this assisted living home.


I recommend AZ life for elderly care. My mother lived at AZ Life for almost a year and was treated as a member of their family. No matter what time we would visit she would be dressed, hair combed and looked great. They prepare all their own delicious meals. We were always welcomed as family when we visited and invited to stay as long as we would like. Effie and Igor are truly caring people who will treat your mother as if she was theirs. They work extremely well with hospice and provide 24hr care. If you are looking for a group home that will treat your mother the way you would, look no farther than AZ Life Assisted Living.

My Mom has lived in this assisted living care home for 15 months now. She came to this home immediately after surgery of her broken wrist. I can not express enough how appreciative of Effie and Igor for taking her in at a time that no one else could care for her especially recovering from surgery. My Mom has dementia and absolutely can not live alone. Effie and Igor are the most caring, loving and responsible care givers that anyone could ever have. This full time job for them consists of doing everything for the people that they are caring for. This includes administering all medication, showering, dressing, feeding, entertaining and providing in house medical assistance for them. The home and environment are absolutely beautiful and relaxing and I would recommend them to anyone who wants their loved one to be taken care of 24 hours a day.

AZ Life is the only place my mother was, were I was comfortable that she would be cared for the way I would care for her! Effie and Igor along with Daughter Ludmilla cared for my mother as if she was their own family as she did become!! My mom spent the last year of her life as happy as she could be and along with the therapy dog she felt as she was home. I could visit any time I wanted, but was always secure in the knowledge that if anything changed or if Mom needed me they would call me instantly! The food was wonderful and home cooked and Igor would often cook more than one meal for mom if she did not care for what was served. She was cared for with the utmost kindness and love. I am an RN and I know what excellent care looks like, It looks like the care that is given at AZ life!!

Sue Geary

My mother-in-law has been living at AZ Life Assisted Living for over 1 year now and she loves it. Effie & her husband, Igor. are just like family now to my mother-In-law, as well as to our entire family, we all love them so much. They approach their job like they are family, and not just a job. You can tell that they love people and are passionate about what they do. They take excellent care of everyone and monitor them closely from a health/safety perspective, to help ensure that they are given the best possible care. . The home & yards are spotless & very beautiful, and well maintained at all time, and the wonderful homemade food/meals that Igor makes on a daily basis, makes me want to move in there. The food is always fresh, healthy, and it looks like it was prepared by a professional chief. They always have weekly activities that encourages everyone to sing, do mild exercising/walking if they are able to do so, and games to keep their minds active. Bottom line, I do not think that anyone would be able to find a better place with such loving people as Effie & Igor, for a competitive price, in such a beautiful/loving safe home environment as AZ Life Assisted Living. Myself & my family are so grateful that we found AZ Life Assisted Living because we know Mom is always safe , and getting the best possible care that she can get in the latter part of her life. AZ Life Assisted Living has been a blessing for our family, and could be a blessing for your family as well.
