Welcome to the Neighborhood!


The owners and staff of The Villas at Houghton believe in giving exceptional care for those in need of assisted living. Everything we do is a result of our passion for serving those that have physical or cognitive difficulty and need assistance with daily living.

Intimate, loving care in a home provides the best quality of life for those in need of assisted living. That is why we built nine specially designed homes at The Villas of Houghton, and not a large “facility.” Each of our homes care for up to 10 residents, who have their own private bedroom, bathroom, and heating and cooling system.

The quality of assisted living care depends on trained, loving caregivers and enough caregivers to properly serve residents. That is why we have a 1:5 caregiver-to-resident ratio and have additional specialty staff on site. Certified caregivers are assigned to a specific Villa and bond with their residents. This ensures that any changes in health or behavior are identified immediately.

Seniors need physical activity and mental stimulation. The Villas at Houghton has an activity coordinator that plans and oversees holiday parties, cook-outs, sing-a-longs, Chi Gong and other group or one-on-one activities. We bring additional specialists and volunteers into the neighborhood who interact with residents to help stimulate physical and mental awareness.

The Villas at Houghton provides all levels of assisted living, as well as memory care for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our homes have specific, private rooms such as a salon and physical therapy room. This allows other service providers such as doctors, therapists, hair and nail stylists, to deliver specialized support to our residents. We also offer short term/respite care. Residents in need of hospice receive the care in their home.

Most large assisted living centers are owned by out-of-town corporations. We are different. The owners of The Villas at Houghton, Bobby Larson and Klaus Axen, built and manage the neighborhood and work at the property. Bobby is available at 520-730-5271, and he personally supervises staff and activities. He works hard to know residents and their families.

We invite you to look over our website and to schedule a tour to see our large and skillfully decorated homes, rooms and landscaped grounds, secured walking paths and water features. Please contact Rayann Jones, Licensed Practical Nurse, at (520) 256-4733 to set up your visit.
