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.

I have two parents in Sage Desert and they have been quarantined since March. I just want to let you know that this is the best place for my parents. They are safe, closely monitored throughout the day, are well fed and cared for. I talk to them almost everyday and they both sound good and tell me what they are doing. We are kept up to date as to what is happening there through Sage Desert and the Parent company. We can't say enough about how happy we are to have them at Sage Desert. We miss the times when I could run in any time during the day and see them but we know we will be able to see them face to face when it is safe for Sage Desert to open up. We are so glad that they are so loved and taken care of by everyone that works there. Thank you for all you have done for me and my parents.

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.
