  • My father received improper care at this place and fortunately for us, my father can articulate every single thing that happened to him by the so called "caretakers." [Name removed], Program Director along with her staff [name removed], are rude, unprofessional and bullies. There is a reason they don't allow contact with your loved one for three weeks. Keep your loved ones away. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALL.

  • Nice and small and absolutely beautiful

    I rated Desert Cottages 1, a 3 because I feel my wife is over medicated. I took a list of her meds to her regular doctor who has talked with the doctor there at Desert Cottages 1 and they are now adjusting her dosage. My wife will only be here another month as we are moving to Sun City, Az. Desert Cottages 1 is a very nice 6-bed facility very simplified. They are meticulous about the food they prepare for their patients, they help feed them. My wife is at the point where she really can not participate in much so they do help her with a lot. The facility is absolutely beautiful it is in a residential gated neighborhood 4/5 bedrooms and all the residents are very well taken care of. I would have no problem recommending Desert Cottages 1 to my family and friends.
