I strongly recommend that all providers of psychiatric care, as well as families and loved ones of the mentally ill, avoid sending their patients to the Arizona Mentor group home at 8439 W Meadowbrook Ave in Phoenix, Arizona. The Arizona Mentor group home at 8439 W Meadowbrook Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85037 is operated negligently by incompetent individuals who care nothing about the peace and safety of the neighborhood or about their patients. The following are two examples of Arizona Mentor’s deplorable conduct and negligence: On Saturday, January 27, 2018, at approximately 2:30 in the afternoon, an employee at the 8439 W Meadowbrook Ave location was in the back yard of the group home on his cell phone shouting racial epithets and every other obscenity in the English language at someone (highly offensive words starting with the letters “N” and “F” and “B” just to name a few). The employee was cursing and ranting so loud that the next door neighbor could hear it very loudly inside the neighbor’s living room, even though all doors and windows were closed! The neighbor was alarmed and thought people were in his backyard fighting, so the neighbor went to see what was going on. When the neighbor saw it was someone at the Arizona Mentor group home next door, he was not at all surprised. The reason why the neighbor knew that this loudmouth in the Arizona Mentor group home back yard was actually one of their paid employees was simple: he said to the person to whom he was cursing at on the phone: “I’m at work right now.” On January 9, 2018, while the neighbors were at work during the day (or sleeping because they WORK the night shift), the employees of Arizona Mentor group home negligently allowed one of their patients to become dangerously destabilized, and they allowed him to wander off to the neighbor’s house and proceed to threaten and harass the neighbors by banging on the door, shouting vulgar threats, and completely destroying the neighbor’s garden that the neighbor had recently paid a lot of money on. Their unstable patient just ripped all of the plants out of the garden while the Arizona Mentor employees did absolutely NOTHING to stop him. The frightened neighbor had to call the police to come and remove the threatening psychiatric patient from their property before he destroyed more than just their beautiful rose garden. The employees of the Arizona Mentor group home, who negligently allowed this to happen, didn’t even bother to apologize to their neighbor for this. They just came over taking pictures, and when the neighbor tried talking to them about it, they refused to engage in any conversation and just rudely walked away. Bottom line: don’t send your loved ones to Arizona Mentor.
