Seniors blossom at conveniently located Desert Flower Assisted Living
SCOTTSDALE – If you think all assisted living centers are pretty much the same, you've not visited Desert Flower Assisted Living and Memory Care Center. The complex offers niceties you'd expect – bingo, movie night, shopping jaunts, casino runs, but then there are "wow moments." Each month, a special activity is offered. The last couple of outings? Skydiving, horseback riding, hot air ballooning. Who says seniors can't have fun?
Desert Flower has offered assisted living, memory care and respite services since 1999. Its rooms (studio, one bedroom, two bedroom apartment homes) have recently undergone a remodel, so every apartment is brand new. In their golden years, residents 55 and up can have the epitome of a cruise ship-like life! There's chef-prepared meals, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, beauty salon on-site. Pets are welcome, and there's even a care plan should the owner be unable.
Families with loved ones in Desert Flower use words like warm, welcoming, friendly, homey, inviting, cozy to describe the long-tenured assisted living community. Their loved ones appreciate the "Personal Preferences Program." With that, residents need not rush home for dinner served at one time. No, they can eat in their rooms at midnight if they so desire. If pottery is a passion, staff will make it happen. Desert Flower is where staff thinks outside of that typically restrictive box. They figure out ways to say yes! For instance, maybe tennis was a hobby but a bum knee sidelined you. The folks at Desert Flower may suggest and take you to see a match instead. It's all about the residents and what delights each of them. They make it their mission to really, really get to know them!
