Safe and Caring place for a loved one

I would recommend this community because I felt that this community was very homey and they allow a lot of independence for the residents and guest, they are very flexible. They had activities like social hours, crafts, bingo, movies and more for the residents to do. They also even let the family participate in the activities also when able to.

Respite care

I would recommend this community for your loved one. We are not there any longer due to some changes in respite care but this is still a great community for your loved one. The only things we used the community for was respite care. They did not meet our needs for long term care.

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.

I went on o tour here and the staff was nice and helpful. They answered all of my questions. The place was clean it was a nice place. I really liked it but it was to big and there were to many people here. They served a lot of mexican food here and mom hates that type of food.It just wasn't a good fit.

Staff is present and really care

This facility has been more than I expected and continue to go above and beyond expectations. I like that the staff take my Grandma out and go for walks around the facility and she isn’t just confined to the memory care unit. They actually talk to her and keep her thinking and active. The staff treats her very well and they are always on hand when we need them. They also have a lot of activities like decorating the halls for the seasons, arts/crafts, and taking them on field trips to art galleries. I would highly recommend this community to other families.

Different Experience

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.

Not impressed

Toured and not impressed, nothing going on for patients as far as activities, they had a board full of stuff that wasn't being done. People in wheelchairs pushing themselves after meal while staff walked by on phones, director in office on her cell phone with doors closed while the one staff member toured us but we seemed to have bothered her. Floors were dirty in dining room with dirty plates, carpet looks like it hasnt been washed. Walked by back door with 4 staff smoking by back door, whos caring for the people? "The back" was depressing which is their dementia lock up, people just sitting on couch sleeping while staff member was on phone. Only on call nurse, rooms are small and people look to busy to care for the patients. By busy I mean on phones and smoking. Move on if your looking to expensive to pay them to ignore my parents needs.

if we were to put dad anywhere it would be here

We were very impressed with the cleanliness at Desert Peaks Assisted Living & Memory Care. We went on a weekend which is supposed to be the time to go when managers around around and the staff just did a beautiful job. It was so nice. In fact we went to five different places and if we were to put dad anywhere it would be here.

Doing A Fantastic Job

They are doing a fantastic job at Desert Peaks Assisted Living & Memory care. Some times I come and visit unannounced and everything is so clean and functioning so smoothly. I was paying a lot more and getting a lot less at a previous facility. This place is a steal! If mom needs something they get back with her right away. I am just really impressed with everything here.

good overall, a few things to improve

Cottonbloom Senior Living is a nice facility with very friendly and helpful staff. There are, however, a few things they could improve. They did not look in on my mother as much as I feel they should have. They were also supposed to help her get into bed, which they did not do very often. She also was not thrilled with the food.
