    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    Q: How do I know if Sage Desert Assisted Living and Memory Care

    Sage Desert offers a wide variety of personal care services, but they are not equipped to help people with certain care needs. Unlike a nursing home, Sage Desert is not prepared to help people who have chronic illness and injury who require ongoing skilled nursing care. Their exclusively non-medical services are for people who need help with their activities of daily living and who want the peace of mind that comes with around-the-clock care. 

    Before applying to Sage Desert, prospective residents can ask themselves a few questions to determine if the community is right for them: 

    • Is the person ambulatory or are they confined to their bed?
    • Does the person need long-term, ongoing medical attention?
    • Does the person need rehabilitation?
    • Does the person have memory impairments, Alzheimer’s or dementia?

    If a person requires continual medical attention or they are permanently confined to their bed, Sage Desert may not be a suitable alternative to skilled nursing care. Their staff is not equipped to help people with advanced medical needs and the community may not admit applicants who require ongoing health care services for the person’s safety. 

    Alternatively, the Sage Desert is well-suited for people with Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, and dementia thanks to their exceptional In the Moment® memory care services. The In the Moment® memory care program offers Alzheimer’s care services designed for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

    Q: How do I know if Sage Desert’s In the Moment® Memory Care program is right for me or my family member? 

    Living with Alzheimer's disease can be challenging for people who are learning to adjust to life with memory impairments. Alzheimer's and dementia present unique obstacles for caregivers and those living with it, making it important to choose the right memory care program when the time comes.

    At Sage Desert, the Alzheimer's care staff understand each person's dementia journey is distinct to them, and no two people are the same. They appreciate that everyone’s Alzheimer’s disease symptoms are different, and what may work for one person may not work the same way for someone else’s memory loss, Alzheimer’s or dementia symptoms. The staff works closely with everyone personally create individualized care plans tailored to their needs, giving people living with Alzheimer's and dementia a comfortable, secure environment for them to retire. 

    Sage Desert’s memory care services are ideal for anyone living with Alzheimer’s disease whose symptoms do not require skilled nursing care. They can treat anyone with memory impairments, from mild memory loss to late-stage Alzheimer’s or dementia.

    Q: Does Sage Desert offer short-term care programs for in-home care recipients?

    Yes! Sage Desert offers temporary respite care for people who normally receive in-home care from a member of their family. When their primary caregiver needs time away from their duties, Sage Desert can step in for up to 30 consecutive days and provide professional care. To learn more about the community’s respite care program and other short-term services, interested parties can use the link above to make an inquiry. 

    Q: How much does Sage Desert cost?

    Sage Desert’s monthly rental fees are different for everyone, depending on which apartment they choose and the services they need. Like many assisted living facilities and memory care communities, the price varies for each person according to their chosen floor plan (for example, a studio costs less than a one-bedroom apartment) and their care needs. The community charges a base rental fee that includes the resident’s room and board, housekeeping, and meals, then add fees according to the services a person receives.

    Based on the price they were charging compared to other communities that I looked at, I would say that it was a very good value. The management team was committed and dedicated to providing the best care for the residents. The caregivers were also all very dedicated. She liked the food they had. There were enough activities. Housekeeping did a good job. She had an issue with her air conditioning this summer, but they fixed it immediately. Within a few hours, everything was good. She was very happy her,e and I was very satisfied with the level of care and attention she received while living here.

    I do think that Chris, the one that runs the place, certainly does keep his face right there. He will stop and talk to you. He is an excellent communicator. I find all the girls very pleasant. I think it is an excellent choice, and we are happy. I'd say they do a really good job with the care. The care staff is very good. The transportation service is good. The maintenance team is very good. He has definitely done better since he has been there. The food is good.

    When we first toured over there, my uncle said he was not interested in any of the activities. He is totally involved, and I think a lot of it has to do with her interaction. In maintenance, the communication is great.The care staff are very approachable and respectful. We had issues with the door, and the maintenance team fixed it right away. We had them install a ceiling fan, and it was the same thing. The building is really nice. It seemed very well kept. We have no complaints about housekeeping. They are offered on a consistent basis. I think the food is nice and varied. The variety is good, and the service is good. The servers know his name and seem to know what he likes ahead of time. Everyone is really nice. The management seems accessible and responsive.

    I am so satisfied. I am satisfied with the way they handled my mother and never felt like she was being neglected in anyway. My father is there, and he is happy. I give that place high regards. I think the building is beautiful. It doesn't smell. They have beautiful plants outside. I think the care staff are super respectful, and I think they are angels. They were very good with my mother. For a year, they managed my father's meds, and they were spot on. My father has never felt better in his life. The maintenance were kind and generous with the time I needed to clean out my mother's room. The building is bright cheert, and everyone is kind. The dining staff is very nice. I think management does a great job. They have done a remarkable job of putting up with my father. They calm him down, and are doing right by him. I was grateful that my mom was there. I haven't run into anybody that hasn't been accessible and responsive to what I ask them. I think it is worth the money.

    (As Debbie, no initial) My mother-in-law's doctor services the community and initially recommended it. Just by visiting it, we saw it was new, and I liked all the activities. Whenever I ask questions, the care givers answer them and communicate well with me. The entire staff is very friendly and all the residents seem happy. I just think it's a really nice place. Overall, they do a good job.

    When my dad had to move to memory care, my mom stayed in her apartment. Management worked it out financially for my mom and helped us coordinate all that. They are great. The maintenance man was amazing during my dad's move to memory care. He is awesome. My mom's apartment is excellent. She hasn't had any issues with the transportation. She loves the activities and partakes in everything. The caregivers are good. The price is fine for what they do for my mom. The staff is awesome, and they couldn't have helped us or supported us more during my dad's last days. The staff was awesome.

    I chose the community after their sales explained how they work with the residents in terms of redirecting and how the residents are treated. Plus, the place is beautiful, so overall, the atmosphere and care. Thus far, management has been anxious to help and their attitudes are friendly. The healthcare staff are all very attentive, friendly and a pleasure to work with. There is a variety in the activities and there is enough for the residents to do. The apartment maintenance is satisfactory. All in all, they have been exceptional and my mother feels both, safe and comfortable. My husband wants to know when we can go there, but I think we can wait a while.

    It's a great place. I feel totally safe. I can exercise, the scenery is great, the food is good, and the staff is wonderful. We get scenic trips and fun outings, it's wonderful. Transportation here for medical appointments is excellent. The care givers are so great. They keep great records. I feel comfortable with them. Maintenance is great, excellent, so is housekeeping. The activities are great, and dining is excellent. The food is great. I find the management team to be very helpful. I love this place.

    The executive director is outstanding. He's very responsive to my concerns and requests, both in writing and verbally. Everything we've asked for has been done and that's very impressive. I find the price to be really fair and the executive director is really mindful on keeping a close eye on their care plan to make sure he's not paying for anything that he doesn't really need. He's very conscientious, which is something I really appreciate. I trust these people with my parents.

    Management always has a positive attitude and are very helpful. The quality of the food is good and I appreciate that they have activities there. They have gone over and above to accommodate him personally if he needs to go to the store. I communicate with them often and they've always been able to explain to me why things are happening. They respond whenever I have an inquiry.

    The price is comparable to others but the care and vibe is so much better than others. They are good at being receptive to my concerns or hearing my input about my mom. Everything to do with music, she has absolutely loved. The building and grounds are wonderful. They look very nice.

    The management team has been just fantastic. They have been super supportive to dad and to the rest of the family. The food is excellent and it's served in senior portions which I'm very impressed with. It's just unbelieveable how well they do everything in the dining room and the wait staff are so friendly and nice. They interact really well with the residents and their guests, they're very cheerful and happy, it's a pleasure to be around them. The activities director is terrific. They have all kinds of trips and things available. My father-in-law goes to the movies and plays pool with a couple of older guys.

    The Director is absolutely amazing and it filters down as people take their lead from him. He is open, friendly and takes care of problems immediately. Otherwise, I haven't encountered anyone there who is not doing the job properly. The care is very good and housekeeping staff keep it clean. If I had to move in myself to some place tomorrow, it'd be Sage Desert and I have referred many people to the community. Overall, I am thrilled to have found a community that actually lives up to its promises.

    Dad is adjusting and seems to be all right and mom is really happy with the place. The managers have been doing very well. My dad says the food is good and the activities have been very good. They keep him active, take him places, and play games. It�s a new building and housekeeping and laundry are very good. As far as the care and all that I am very happy with it. The one care giver who usually works with dad is really in tune to his moods. So far, so good on the value. I know he is safe, and he is comfortable.

    The price is pretty standard for the market and the value is good. The managers seem to be on the premises 90% of the time and respond to questions. Dining and the service is good. The calendar of activities looks like fun stuff. It's a new building, it's in overall nice shape. The care givers are excellent, they are fabulous. They always answer the phone, 24/7, and the response is excellent, and the staff is caring and efficient. The nurse-practitioner there is great, the staff is communicative, and I have nothing but good things to say about them.

    Chris who the director there is always eager and anxious to please and is always available. There is never a point where he can't see me. He is very responsive to anybody that asks. When I had question regarding various issues he was eager to please. There was a good variety on the menu and obviously the courtesy of all the staff was good as well. The housekeeping was always perfect; spot on. All of the care givers were phenomonal. Candace and Alma in particular. From them down everyone was right on their game.

    I think everything is working really well there and I am very pleased with this community. Everybody has been really nice to my folks and the servers are really good. Every night when I call my mom, my step dad tells me that they had something different and that the food was good. I think the activities are awesome. If we can get her up and ready to go she will go to the exercise class. They have a cooking class and a makeup class and other things that get the residents out of their rooms. Housekeeping is very good and does a great job. There is one maintenance guy who is always there and is always running around. He is very helpful and awesome. I think the caregivers do an excellent job. They give her her medication every day and bathe her three times a week.

    Based on the competition, I would say it is a good value. I think Chris, the director, is doing a great job. My mother seems to enjoy the food and has never complained that the menu is lacking. The caregivers all seem to be very compassionate. From start to finish, everyone helped make the decision a lot easier on where to put her.

    I chose this community for my parents because of the location plus the environment. It was new and looked inviting. Management is very empathetic, they understand the situations that we've dealt with and are very helpful. Management really knows my parents very well. I would like to give kudos to Karen the activities person. She's awesome with my parents and can get them involved even if they don't want to be. Karen holds a special place in my mom's heart and I really appreciate everything she does for my parents. What they do for my parents is pretty outstanding and my parents love it there. The healthcare staff are pretty good. I like that they establish a relationship with my parents.

    I feel like my loved one is safe and comfortable at this community. Management does a really terrific job. Chris picked up and grabbed my mom in a company vehicle from her last stay at the hospital and brought her back to the community. He is a thoughtful human being. Karen was the first person we talked to and she was terrific. She still is terrific and greets us when we come in. Leony has helped me endlessly with the long care people who have constantly figured out a way to not pay her. She has been a real resource in getting those things collected. The housekeeping is pretty decent and I am satisfied with the building maintenance. The caregivers do a better than adequate job and for her situation, the staffing is adequate.

    We chose it because they had an open bed. We also looked at some other ones. The staff was very accommodating and very helpful so that is why we went with Sage Dessert for my mom. It has been very pleasant to work with the management. They have been very accommodating to our needs. The care givers have been great. She has a doctor that comes in twice a week and her name is Jody. She has been excellent. We had an issue where we needed to get a television mounted in my mom's room. They took care of it. I believe that she has participated in some and what she has done she has enjoyed. I would like to sing praises for Chris the manager, the sales person and April. All three of them were tremendous to work with.

    We chose Sage Desert because we were recommended by someone coming out to look at my uncle. The staff was very accommodating on move-in and the residents themselves are really nice as well, so it's been a good experience for him thus far. Also, management checked in with me on move-in day to see if there was anything else we needed and while we did have some concerns, they were handled that day, with management touching in after the fact to say they were handled, so there was good follow through as well. The healthcare staff is very attentive, very patient and not hurried. They recognize the residents that they're dealing with and they just take it with stride. He has used transportation the Monday after he moved in, so it has worked without a hitch and still is. I will also add that the driver is very friendly and the vehicle is wonderful. Regarding housekeeping services, his room is clean, swept and kept very nice. He hasn't had a problem with laundry and when he asked someone about it, they showed him where to place it, only for it be placed back by his room in the morning, so he was amazed. They have minimalistic d�cor and it helps makes the community look clean. When we first moved in, the door was heavy for him to push with his walker, but management sent someone up to take care of it that day. The person actually did say they didn't understand it, which I appreciated, but they did say it'd be handled on Monday and it was handled on Monday. With activities at the community, he has been enjoying all of them. He said he had no interest and now he is never his room, so they're definitely doing exactly what they were supposed to do in getting him out and about. In terms of dining, the food seems fantastic and I love the meal tickets. I have bought him a bunch of the tickets and he has been inviting people over, so obviously the food is good, otherwise he wouldn't be doing that. The dining service is also very patient, they explained the walker valet and everyone seems to be in tune, so things are going very well right now. In fact, my uncle has already been giving tours almost every week.

    I thought it looked great when I was there, it seemed like a good fit. Management is great, the person I met with Karen gave me all the information and was very straightforward, gave me a wonderful tour and showed me all the different options. I was just there and had lunch and it was very good, I was pleasantly surprised and the servers were wonderful. I think the activities are awesome, I think there is lots to do, they send me pictures of her doing stuff all the time so I love that. Every time the healthcare staff sees my mom, any staff, they say hi to her and everyone has been so responsive, it's really wonderful.

Chris has been awesome. The housekeeping looks like it is pretty good. We haven't had a problem with the laundry. The maintenance staff has been so courteous and ready to help us immediately when we have asked for help. The care givers that we have dealt with have been super awesome. We haven't been uncomfortable about talking to them about anything. Overall, we are happy and we consider it a real blessing to have her there.

    I think the management staff runs a very well organized facility here. I am very impressed with Chris and his ability to make everybody work cohesively together. Dad likes the food here and the staff is great. Dad made a move from one apartment to another and the maintenance staff were very helpful with that. The community is new and very well designed. I have recommended it and there are two people here because of me.

    My loved one is thrilled with the food and there are a lot of activities. He's used the transportation service there once or twice and it's been readily available. His apartment always looks nice and clean and the caregivers are all very attentive. The cost is a little high but I'd say it's worth it.

    If it wasn't for the care we get I would say it is pretty pricey. But, because of the care and skilled nursing I would say it is right on par. There isn't a person in that organization that isn't attentive. Chris, the director, is phenomenal. He is never hiding in a corner he is always out there. The food quality is great. The activities are great. They take them on outings, they do arts and crafts and the stuff they make is just great. The maintenance staff has hung pictures and artwork. They got the cable hooked up. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The care staff works as if they are getting paid four times what they are being paid. There isn't a person there that you would think is there for a job. Sometimes I come in and they don't see me and there may be a chance for them to not be on their game but they are always on their game. They are always accommodating, it doesn't matter if it is a Sunday or off day, not a prime Monday-Friday. They always have a smile on their face. It is great.

    I chose this community for mom because we had someone help us who specializes in helping you find a place within your price range. We toured Sage Desert and just loved it. Everyone has been really great to work with, everyone from Vicki, the director, on down. The care staff have just been really, really great to mom. Super nice, super encouraging, very friendly, very gentle with my mom physically if they have to help her with anything. My mom thinks the people there are very nice and very kind to her, including the people that live there, they've all been incredibly kind to my mom. I know she's grateful for this place and so are we.

    My wife and I moved in because they have Memory Care available here. The manager here, Chris, is the best I ever saw. It's a brand new apartment, maintenance is great. I've gone out with them on the bus and now I have a reservation to get to my doctor. They have the best driver here. The food is good and they have a monthly schedule with every activity on it. My wife and I are safe here.

    I feel it is a fair value for the fact that it is a nice new facility and we can afford it. I am happy. Management has always been responsive to me when I have called. I have seen the calendar of activities and I know they always have things planned for Dad to do. I am very appreciative that the van guy has taken him personally to the drugstore when he needed to go. I will say the care staff are mostly on the ball as well.

    Chris, the director, does an excellent job. Whenever there is a problem or issue like I had to move my grandmother from assisted living to memory care and that was done in a matter of a few hours. Debbie, from sales, does a great job also. They activities staff have been good about helping her. They have activities calendars posted and signup sheets posted everywhere. They do a nice job and everyone is friendly. The maintenance staff helped move her downstairs and get things set up for her. We had a clogged up toilet once and that was instantly resolved. The building is brand new and looks perfect. The care staff does a good job. They are always willing to help me when I need it.

    It does appear to be a competitive price in this market. I have had good interactions with management. All the people have been good and helpful when I have needed something for my sister. She is happy with the dining here and I would say the food is good. They go on mystery rides and she helps bake cookies. They do several things in activities. Housekeeping keeps the place clean and neat. I see my sister's reaction to the staff when she sees them and she is happy to see them so they must be doing something right.

    Compared to other places, the price at this community is fair. Management has been receptive and do everything they should be doing. The food quality is okay and my mom likes bingo. The caregivers at this community are all good as well.

    Sage Desert is our 3rd place and for Assisted Living, location and quality, I'd say the price is fair. Management is very easy to talk to and so far, I haven't had any problems. I really like the dining staff and the activity staff always have something going on, whether it's games or other activities, so I think they're great. She doesn�t participate a whole lot in activities personally, but she does her best to get to the painting classes and she did go out to the Christmas events, which she enjoyed immensely. With regards to cleanliness, the gal who does my mother's housekeeping is excellent and about as sweet as they can be and maintenance is great, they've been on the ball. With the few people I have dealt with, they've been very congenial and they keep the building in great shape because it is beautiful and it's like walking into a fancy hotel when you enter the community. Regarding her care, the staff is very nice and they're very sweet to her, so I have been satisfied with services that are provided to her and think she feels comfortable at the community.

    We chose this community for my in-laws because it's a wonderful facility. Management is very interested in everything about their residents, they're just great. The food is beautifully presented and in the correct portions for elderly people. I have actually eaten with my in-laws a few times and it's just wonderful and the servers are really good. Maintenance installed the TV for them; he's a very good maintenance man. The grounds are fabulous. There is an inner courtyard so they can get out and walk around in the sunshine on the paths, the place is immaculate. I would definitely say it's worth every penny.

    The reason I chose this community for my mom is because it's a little over half a mile from my house and in speaking with Chris, the director, I like his vision and I like his management style which is hands on. Chris is amazing and if he sees something that needs to be done he does it instead of waiting for someone else to come and do it. There is always someone there, the care staff is marvelous. I have never failed to see caregivers out and about doing what they're supposed to do. I don't see them sitting around chatting, they're always with someone and I haven't encountered anyone who hasn't been kind.

    Working at Sage Desert has been the best work experience that I have ever had. I love the our team and our residents. I look forward to every day because I am helping people in a positive way. When I am working with families, it is usually a very stressful time, and I pride myself in helping them through this difficult process. My reward is seeing the new resident thrive in our amazing community.

    The BEST assisted living and memory care community in northwest Tucson. Stunning building, thoughtfully designed, very high end feel but still warm and home-like. Lots of amenities and activities. Staff is active and engaged...and truly cares about the residents.
