It’s never easy when a family makes a decision that their loved one needs to be placed in an assisted care facility because they can’t care for themselves anymore. Desert Gardens, however, was perfect for my mother and our family. The facility was small enough that it eased her transition from her own home to assisted care. It’s beautiful and homey and always smelled delicious from the scrumptious food they prepared for their residents. And the staff was so kind and loving that I always felt my mother was truly getting the best care possible. Even the visiting nurses told me Desert Gardens was one of the best places in Tucson. We will never regret our decision to go with Desert Gardens and will remain forever grateful to them for the love and care they gave our mother.

Desert Gardens Assisted living and memory care is home for Dad and a very special place. This home is beautiful from every little detail inside the house to the peaceful, spectacular views in the backyard. This is the first time I have written a review, I think its important for families to know what really makes this home is the highly qualified, caring, attentive loving staff! From the moment I walk in the front door I am greeted with a warm smile, the smell of home (home cooked meals) and residence that look content and cared for. From my first phone call to Chaz (Owner) it was all about my Dad and his specific needs, this man truly cares about people. He has hired quality professional caring staff that make this home unique from the rest. Because he is hands-on and strives to accommodate each families needs. Robin, the administrator-house manager is an angel on earth! Her professionalism and years of experience I am so thankful for. She is present in the home, and always there to answer my questions and give me a hug. The strong caring leadership of this facility is sprinkled down to every caregiver and passed on to my Daddy and all of the other residents... Desert Gardens is home!

Facing a terribly stressful decision to place ones loved one in assisted living is made almost painless by the wonderful staff at Desert Gardens. I had researched and toured several places. After one such tour I sat in my car and cried. The alternatives out there range from just ok to downright depressing. Until I toured Desert Gardens. Bright, warm, welcoming, I knew right away this was the place. Chaz and Ro answered every question I had. Called, emailed, texted numerous times when something else would pop up. Then The Day arrived and my mom was very happy. I cant thank them enough for helping my family transition to this next phase of my moms life with such compassion.

Having my mom Sarah at Desert Gardens was the best decision we made for her. They are like family and took very great care of my mom. Personalitys are awesome! Sadly my mom passed May 3rd but the care and love she received was more than I could have asked for. Highly recommend them! And I will miss seeing them! Love them all!! Stuart King

If youre reading this review, you have already discovered that finding the right place for a loved one to live and receive adequate care can be nerve racking. Making big decisions for someone else can cause a lot of second-guessing oneself. Thats how it was for my siblings and me as we tried to shepherd our mother through her progressing dementia, searching for a home thats not too restrictive today but will offer enough care and structure for tomorrow. After personally reviewing Arizonas list of 400+ assisted living homes in Tucson, less than two dozen met our picky criteria. At minimum, the house itself had to be safe, clean, orderly, and purpose-built so residents with limited mobility and-or cognitive skills could navigate the space. We wanted to be able to feel confident that the staffing ratio would be adequate, that staff was skilled to deftly handle the routine as well as emergency care. We wanted in-home doctor visits, medication management, haircuts, and nails attended to. Nutritious, from-scratch meals were equally important. In short, we wanted it all!! Yes, we ARE that horrid, demanding family that caregivers try to avoid, because we want someone to take care of mom like we wished we could ourselves. Now let me sing Desert Gardens praises specifically: They meet all the criteria outlined above, whats more, they patiently work with US, the demanding family. For that, we will be forever grateful. Weve seen immediate improvements in mom, including a better appetite and increased energy. Desert Gardens is a beautiful home, beautifully appointed, situated up in the hills to offer beautiful views. We appreciate how well our mother is cared for by Desert Gardens kind and flexible staff. There is no buyers remorse in this choice. We think its The Best!

After having visited a number of care homes and feeling distraught, I walked into Desert Gardens with an immediate feeling of euphoria! It is a beautiful bright and airy environment, with the most remarkable staff. The attention and engagement given to the residents is more than I imagined. The Administrator, Robin, immediately allayed my fears of assisted living. I feel at peace to have my husband in such a loving, caring and safe home.

For years I have been making house calls to assisted living facilities. I recently visited the Desert Gardens Assisted Living . Truthfully I have never been so impressed with a facility as much as I was with this one. Upon entering I immediately felt the positive and welcoming attitude of the staff. The facility presents with an ambiance of being very happy, bright, and relaxing.The cleanliness is superb. The back porch is very comforting and the artificial turf is very easy to walk on. From the backyard clients have amazing views coupled with a feeling of peacefulness. I would highly recommend this facility. Sincerely, Dr. Charles A. Loschiavo

I cannot recommend Desert Gardens Assisted Living highly enough. While the community is new to Tucson, the management is well-known and highly respected amongst her peers in the Tucson senior care industry. The philosophy on which the facility operates is outstanding, and I am sure will be very beneficial to not only the residents, but the staff as well. The facility is gorgeous and I have no doubt in my mind it will fill to capacity quickly. If you are searching for competent, welll-trained and friendly staff to care for yourself, a loved one or a client, LOOK NO FURTHER!
