Senior Living Options of the Desert was established in 2005 for the purpose of helping families make the best residential care choice for their loved one. This is done by providing families necessary tools to help them make informed decisions based on needs, budget and desired location.
Once an individual’s care needs, budget and desired location has been established; Senior Living Options of the Desert will arrange tours of those facilities which best match the criteria and then accompany family members to make sure the right questions get asked AND answered as well as to provide assistance in negotiating costs.
Senior Living Options of the Desert will also assist the individual to secure any additional monetary resources they may be eligible for to increase their expendable care budget…And will assist in processing the necessary documents.
