I am a friend or relative of a resident
I have a friend who has lived here for four years...she reports a change in management several months ago and invited us to come "feel the difference." New programs and activities have enlivened the community with spark and enthusiasm. in a year or so I intend this to be my home.

They are very enthused about activities. An exercise program is encouraged in the mornings. They bring in lots entertainment such as sing a longs and music. They have monthly birthday celebrations for the residents and theme parties.
They go out on outings on the bus to shopping and picnics. They also go to restaurants, movies, and ballgames. During the Christmas celebration, they go out on the bus and have music and hot cocoa while viewing the decorations.
This is a great facility and I would recommend it to anyone.

When a parent is diagnosed with a disease that will eventually end their life, all you want is the best possible day every single day. My father was diagnosed with a pulmonary disease years and years after working with asbestos, long before anybody knew how harmful it was.
My father, at the time, was living in Northern Arizona, just living his life as a writer and artist and shop owner. After his diagnosis, he tried to maintain his style of living but found it increasingly difficult. My sister and I both wanted him to come down south to the Phoenix area.
We promised him that together we'd find, not a facility, but a home, where he could still be free to go about his days but if he did need help, help would be there.
One of the places we looked at was Villa Ocotillo. Located in Scottsdale, it was a comparable drive between my home in Mesa and my sister's house in West Phoenix.
Right as we walked in the door we noticed the dark red walls in the living area. Almost at the same time, my sister and I both said ""Ooooh, dad would love this.""
What we found as we continued were spectacular rooms, a HUGE dining area, a theater (and even though my father isn't really into television or movies we both thought he'd appreciate the opportunity), on site doctor! On site. Not just nurses, whom I respect in the highest degree as both my mother and sister are registered nurses, but a doctor on site. That gave us a sense of security.
Super friendly staff! Full of smiles and camaraderie, as if they knew you already. One aide even told my sister and I how handsome our father was and wasn't he too young to be looking at facilities. He was. Only 56 but terminally ill.
I can't recall exactly why we didn't jump on this place. I think it was early in our learning process about what my father would eventually require as his disease progression was rapid.
But, a beautiful place. Expertly decorated and expertly staffed!

On a recent visit to Villa Ocotillo, I entered from the parking lot, which is actually at the back of the building. Walking through the community involved several long hallways with lots of opportunity to see the staff and residents as they went about their day. As I passed each staff member I was greeted with a friendly hello and an offer to help me find someone. On the surface, this may seem to be nothing more than courtesy, but it is also a valuable tool for the staff to ensure that I had a reason to be in the building.
Although this community lacks a decorators touch, it does have a homey feel and a pleasant atmosphere. The common areas were clean and free from any offensive odors. Most important, each resident I encountered had a destination; everyone seemed to be busy and engaged.
I would definitely give Villa Ocotillo the opportunity to tell me more about the services they provide to their residents and will be contacting them further for a tour.
