  • Desert Peaks Assisted Living & Memory Care

    Desert Peaks is a small enough community where you won't become just another resident and get lost in the shuffle. The staff is helpful, friendly and caring. My husband's parents live there and they appreciate the attention and concern given for their health and well being. A variety of activities are provided both within and outside of the facility, and residents are encouraged to participate. My husband's parents like it there.

    First and foremost the residents were all nice and kind. A few residents companions, as they call them, were also kind and made attempts to greet and introduce themselves. My daughter and I had been speaking with the facility manager [Removed] for a few weeks about the placement of my mother into the facility. I had set up a meeting with [Removed]. When we arrived we were greeted by the receptionist who directed me towards the assistant administrator who stated that [Removed] was busy talking calls in her office. I was caught off guard because our initial walk through was scheduled to be [Removed]. In any case the assistant administrator was very nice and gave me a tour of the facility which I wasn't so impressed with. There was a strong odor of feces in the hallways where the residents reside. The Wellness nurse also spoke with us for a brief period as he was assisting with residents. I can't recall his name but it's nice to see the manager gentleman hands on with the residents. I was taken by the kitchen and introduced to the cook [Removed] who was very kind and explained how the meals were prepared fresh daily. I then went to the back where I think it was called the Alzheimer's Unit, again the smell was horrible. A resident was asleep on the couch and other residents were asleep at the dinning table. As we walked through to the TV room, it was if no one had bothered to clean up after lunch. Pretty disgusting. There was food spilt all over the floor and the table had juice spilled over. Finally as we proceed back towards the Assistant Administrators office we pass [Removed]. The assistant had tried to introduce my mother and myself to her. It was a very awkward introduction. As if she was uninterested or preoccupied. Extremely rude. Needless to say we have since settling my mom into a different local assisted living community. Our search for the perfect place for mom was not an easy but I hope this review helps others to not waste their time as I did.
