I'm living at Desert Rose, and the best thing about it is that the people are very nice. I have a studio and it's nice and clean. The dining room is really pretty, but the food could be better. They have Bingo. They're getting new management, so I'm hoping that it takes care of some of the problems.
Desert Rose seems to be pretty pleasant. The staff and the residents are friendly. The food is absolutely excellent. They have a chef that is just beyond words. My father has put on probably five or ten pounds since he moved there. They have a pretty good range of activities and he seems to be relatively happy there. He has memory issues and his mobility is not the best in the world, so he uses a cane or a walker, but he gets around and walks around the grounds. The place is quite nice. There are two house groups there. One is the pink ladies and there is another group that offers escort services and medical alerts. We got a pill dispenser there that we fill up and they take him his medicine in the morning and at night. They have some people that help him put on his socks when he needs help with that. Those are services not provided by the Desert Rose, but by vendors on-site. They have laundry machines on each floor as well.
Desert Rose seems to be going downhill, and the managers don't seem to care. My mom's room is fine. It was probably a 4 rating on the room itself. The facility was kind of rundown. The staff seem friendly enough, but the managers are uninterested. It seems like they are cutting back on food expenses, and their variety is very limited. I asked Mom what was for Christmas dinner, and she said a dried out pork chop. They have bingo, arts and crafts, and exercise. It's $1,000 a month less expensive, so that makes up for something.
Desert Rose was really very nice, warm, and friendly, and people seemed to really be enjoying themselves. I had lunch in their very nice dining room. We had a choice of three different things, and everything was delicious. I would live there, but I can't at this time. They had bingo, a swimming pool, art classes, parties, and open houses, numerous things, and everything you can think of. They had lots of people there, and the rooms were very nice. They had a one-bedroom apartment, two-bedrooms, and studios, and I was very impressed with everything. I thought the amenities were really good.
Desert Rose was fantastic. The people were very friendly, informed, and they really made us feel that we were welcome. They showed us both 1- and 2-bedroom apartments on the first and second floor. They serve three meals a day and they have an area where you can pick up snacks and coffee in between meals. Residents also have the opportunity to choose from the menu various different types of entrees, desserts, and salads. Every time I go there, I am more and more impressed with the staff members.
Hi John, thank you so much for providing us with feedback. We strive to provide an inviting community that our residents are proud to live in. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We hope to see you back soon!
My father moved into Desert Rose. The staff is really nice. He likes the people, his accommodations, and the food. He's meeting new friends and having a good time. They have a wide variety of amenities and activities. He likes karaoke, and they have movies on Saturdays, music, and some events in the atrium, which is at the center of the building. He has some people there that he shoots pool with. There's a bunch of other things he's gradually getting involved in. His room is very clean. Everything works well, and it's just the right size for him. They're doing a good job. The facility is good, and I never see any issues with it. It's very clean and very well kept, and they have a couple of companies on each level that provide additional nursing if required. The grounds are good and well kept. The assistant manager, who is from the Philippines, is very nice, very personable, and takes direct action on any issues. They do a good job with the activities, which everybody seems to be happy with. He's going on 93 and still has a car, which is parked there. He felt more at home at Desert Rose. It is very open on the inside of the three-story building, and he liked it because he can see everything and people coming and going.
I saw some of the rooms in the independent living part of Desert Rose. They were very nice, and the residents can do anything they want with them if it will make them more comfortable. The staff there were good folks. I ate dinner with them, we had the same meal served to everybody, and it was good. It's a hotel-type community, but that's not what I was looking for.
Hi Lew, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad to hear your tour at Desert Rose went well. We strive to help older independent people live better and are happy to hear you can see our hard-work. Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a great day!
I was very impressed with Desert Rose, especially Hailey, who took us around. The people there were very kind, very open, very patient, and answered all my parents' questions. It turned out to be a very positive experience for them, so they signed the contract. The food was very tasty, warm, and the wait service was very good. The whole place was so bright with a lot of daylight.
Desert Rose was very pleasant, and the facilities were quite nice. The people seemed to be nice as well. It was just quite simply out of my range financially. Most of the rooms were running around 500 square feet and they have one that was 800 and I liked that, but at $2,350 a month, there's no way I could do that. It would've been great for me because it's right across the street from where I attend church. I met one lady and she was very pleasant and very nice, and several of my friends at church live there and they just love it. They speak very highly of all the wait staff, the cooks, and the people that do the cleaning and everything. The cleanliness and the maintenance are fine, but some of the decor needs to be updated. The location was absolutely ideal for me and the amenities were everything I was looking for.
Desert Rose is nice and gives you a good impression, but it probably needs a little update since it looks a little old. We saw one room that provides a little kitchenette. They have a game room and a library. I think it's a good option and it looked like a safe and nice place for older people.
Desert Rose is very nice and clean. It smells good. The staff members are very friendly and helpful. The main area is clean. That's what I like, and that's what I'm looking for.
The community just underwent a remodel, and has all new furniture and carpets throughout. The food is amazing! They have live-in managers that really care. One time, late at night, I thought I was having a heart attack, and the managers got me help, and sat up with me until help arrived! I always thought Desert Rose was just another old age home, but what I found was that it is so much better! It's not assisted living. It's independant living, with assistance. I still drive my car, however, when I can't, they have a community van that takes me.
WONDERFUL community! The executive chef prepares amazing meals, the staff is extremely helpful, and being it is "all inclusive" (utilities, food, etc) the value can't be beat. The community managers actually live on the property, and are always there for you. They have great activities and entertainment, and it's like being on a cruise ship (without the water). I highly encourage you to visit Desert Rose for lunch and a tour.
