The person that runs the community is amazing and phenomenal. For what my father needed at the time it worked great. Compared to other communities it may be in the same ballpark but he got the three meals a day and a place to sleep but the cost was just to much for what he got.

Review for Desert Cottage II
Horrible experience. It was a very unpleasant experience for the family and the patient. We picked this community, because it was close to our house, and thought they would provide the 24 hour care that was needed. No one checks on the patients at night.

Best Place for Dad
We were very lucky to find such a caring and understanding administrator to help with the care of my stepfather who had Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson's disease. The cottage was more like a home than the skilled nursing facility where he was with staff that was more caring and skilled. My stepfather was in hospice when he arrived and the cottage staff worked well with the hospice staff. This was the best alternative for the care of my stepfather and the health of my mother.

I know my Mother is in good hands
This facility worked so quickly in getting my Mother in, it was a miracle! The woman in charge, Liz, she really seems to have a grasp on how to care for residents with memory problems. The quality of care here is good and [Removed] also is very easy to talk to. She always has the answers to my questions and lets me know all of her observations. I don’t feel like they just throw my mom in a chair in front of a TV. My Mother seems to be very healthy and content here. She also has a few issues with scratching her skin and the staff members take care of that and help her. I feel comfortable knowing she is in great hands and is taken care of. I would recommend this community to other families

I was very impressed with [Removed], and the amount of time that she spent with me going over the pertinent facts of my husband's illness. The house was immaculate, and gave me a good feeling. I would be happy to have my husband stay there provided that the larger bedroom was available on a shared basis. It is now occupied.

Friendly Staff!!
My husband was only in this community for a short period of time and I have no complaints of how things had went for him. The staff where attentive to his needs and where always so friendly to all of the family. The property was kept clean and they had a wide variety of activities for the residents.

After almost one month at Desert Cottages II in Indio, my husband is doing better and not sleeping so much. I am very pleased with the care givers and how the home is run. They even have two dogs who visit on a regular basis. I would highly recommend this facility.

Glad I took A Place for Mom's recommendation!
My impression of Board and Care facilities was not positive as having looked at several in a different part of the state. However, when A Place for Mom suggested Desert Cottages, I did agree to have another look. And I am so glad I did! I was very pleasantly surprised at the lovely home, large backyard with fountain, and very welcoming staff. My mom has been there for a few months now and is getting great care, so much more than I was able to do by myself. The home is always immaculate, decorated for every season and holiday. The staff is very warm but also conscientious about medication, meals, and making sure all residents feel comfortable. I highly recommend Desert Cottages!

Frequently Asked Questions
about Desert Cottage II

Desert Cottage II offers 1 Bedroom and Semi-Private. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Desert Cottage II 1 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
