I visited this facility

Dessert Peaks is a very small place. The rooms are extremely small and not very comfortable as far as I could tell. They have small suites with a little living area, a bedroom, a bath, and a tiny kitchen area where you could mainly make coffee or something like that. They also have Alzheimer's care there. They were in the process of redecorating -- they had just sold to another company -- and my impression was it was not very attractive or very comfortable. The location is very comfortable because it's in a little road with trees, and as you know we are in the dessert here, so the surrounding trees are very pleasant. The managing director was the one who took me around, and she was very nice, but I made the decision that this was not the place I want my husband to be.
Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate hearing from you. Yes Desert Peaks is small. We have only 45 units. For those seeking a small, intimate, family environment with a lot of social engagement in the dining room, on the patios, courtyards, porches, and other common areas with friends and families it is a good fit. Our remodel is coming to a conclusion now, including the remodel of some of our 1 bedroom apartments. We have new flooring, new paint, and new parking lot. We also expanded the Mountain Vistas neighborhood providing more specialized programming for those who have Alzheimer's or other cognitive challenges. The Assisted Living Neighborhood has amazing new flooring in the large dining room, which we use as a dance floor and party room when we have our monthly musical events. I am glad you liked our location! It is such a beautiful country setting, with lots of patios and outdoor space. We even have a Desert Tortoise habitat in one of our courtyards, and we all enjoy the natural habitat here. Please free free to stop by if you are in the neighborhood and see the changes, and join us for an event or a meal. We would love to meet you. Thanks again for taking the time to tell us your impressions. We take all feed back to heart.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is at Desert Peaks. It seems to be OK. My mom has a room by herself right now until they get some more people. However, I think they would probably need more employees. They do have trips on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They would take them for doctor's appointments. They have a lady that does their hair onsite, but she is only there on Mondays. Also you can go in and spend the whole day with your family member. They play bingo and board games, so I think it is alright. The memory care units are locked, and the other ones are not locked, so there are actually two sides to the facility. The facility is very clean, and everyone has been friendly.
