    Detailed Information

    Desert Flower Scottsdale AZ

    Located in the lively heart of Scottsdale, AZ, Desert Flower is a senior living community offering easy access to the area’s nearby shopping centers, restaurants, and world-renowned hospitals. Residents can enjoy relaxing, fulfilling retirement in one of the community’s studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom apartments while they receive long-term care. When they want to make friends, explore their hobbies and learn new things, they are invited to the community’s ever-changing daily events, featuring social activities and wellness programs designed with residents in mind. 

    At Desert Flower, retirement is about much more than quality long-term care services. While getting help with daily activities plays an important role in a happy retirement, staying active and developing new skills are equally as vital. With a wide variety of social programs and on-campus amenities, Desert Flower makes living a stimulating life easy and encourages residents to live the most carefree retirement possible. 

    Residents can learn to paint with watercolors at an art lesson or compete with their friends at Texas Hold ‘Em as part of Desert Flower’s social activities. If they want to discuss their favorite novels, they can join the book club and attend weekly meetings. When residents want to bond with other members of their church, they can go to one of the community’s regular devotional sessions, prayer groups, or bible studies. Whatever a person prefers, there is always something fun for them to do without going far from their doorstep. 

    Desert Flower’s on-campus amenities are another popular attraction, alongside their full social events calendar. Their amenities are designed to take the stress out of retirement living, letting older adults find everything they need without leaving the community. For example, a person can get their hair cut at the full-service beauty salon or enjoy a meal in the on-campus restaurant. The restaurant staff prepares new meals every day, featuring classic favorites like shepherd's pie and, grilled chicken salad, and pork chops. If residents have special dietary needs, they can request meal substitutions as necessary. 

    Although most residents enjoy their meals in the restaurant, they are welcome to prepare their own if they please. Each apartment comes with a spacious kitchenette, complete with cooking appliances and a full-size refrigerator. Apartments also feature a small dining area, letting residents enjoy meals comfortably while they're at home. 

    Each apartment is different, featuring its own unique charm and personality. Assisted living residents can choose from four floor plans and the memory care community offers two options. Regardless of layout, apartments feature: 

    • Private bathrooms 
    • Spacious closets with storage space 
    • Large windows with stunning views 
    • Cable television and internet hookups 
    • Emergency call systems 

    The staff provides weekly housekeeping, making home maintenance as easy as possible.

    When residents move into Desert Flower, they will speak with a care adviser one-on-one to discuss their personal care needs. The care adviser will learn what they need the most help with and create an individualized care plan that targets those areas. Valuing each person’s independence, care plans are designed to provide just the right amount of daily assistance - not so much that the person feels like they are not self-sufficient. 

    Everyone’s individualized care plan is different, tailored to them specifically. If a person is living with Alzheimer's or dementia, a care adviser may recommend they living in the memory care community so they can get the most suitable services.
