Demand for the Vi at Grayhawk lifestyle is high. Upon opening in October 1999, the community promptly reached full occupancy and has consistently remained at capacity. An intimate setting full of warmth and elegance, Vi at Grayhawk boasts Southwest-inspired architecture and breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains from its one- and two-bedroom apartments and casitas. Nestled in the Grayhawk 1,450-acre masterplan community, residents love the neighborhood environment where they can enjoy shopping, dining, entertainment, parks, and miles of paved walking and biking paths.
Vi at Grayhawk appeals to seniors who are pursuing an engaged lifestyle, as the community is focused on nurturing residents’ minds, bodies and spirit through the “Living Well” program. To foster a commitment to healthy aging and longevity, Vi offers wellness programs such as water aerobics, on-site fitness classes, and off-site activities including hiking, biking and golfing. In 2015, the community also launched “Adventures in Learning” in partnership with Paradise Community College, giving residents the opportunity to take college courses and invest in lifelong learning.
Vi also creates opportunities for residents to give back to the community. Vi at Grayhawk’s cross-generational Pen Pal Program connected residents with fifth graders at Cochise Elementary School. Paired students and seniors exchanged handwritten letters over the course of the school year, with the residents imparting skills like cursive and formal correspondence and investing in the youth on a personal level. Additionally, the Grayhawk Classic Residents’ Foundation, a non-profit group that awards scholarships to Vi at Grayhawk employees and their dependent children, has awarded more than $2 million dollars in scholarships over the last 13 years.

Vi is committed to providing team members meaningful work, engaging culture, and opportunities to learn and grow, as these are the primary drivers of resident satisfaction and quality care.
