Desert Diamond Memory Pavilion

Welcome to Desert Diamond Memory Pavilion

Desert Diamond Memory Pavilion is designed for seniors that have trouble thinking.  Our memory neighborhood provides long-term comfort and care for residents with cognitive impairment.  This expansive memory pavilion features 24/7 skilled nursing care, private studios and one-bedroom suites, large outdoor patio, multi-sensory therapy room, theatre, family visiting areas, dining room and hair salon.

Desert Diamond Memory Pavilion is a Montessori Inspired Lifestyle™ it is based on the educational philosophies of childhood educator Dr. Maria Montessori.  Dr. Cameron Camp discovered that Dr Montessori’s philosophies and principles could be effectively adapted as an approach for dementia care.  This method focuses on re-discovering and supporting the person behind the dementia.  Activities with meaning and purpose are put back into people’s lives, based on their needs, interests, skills and abilities.

Montessori’s methods help reduce and prevent challenging behaviors associated with dementia.  Boredom and loneliness are reduced through activities that embrace roles, routines, and improve self-awareness. Our smaller, secured, homelike setting provides an environment that is more familiar and less overwhelming for residents.  

First-Class Residences

Memory Care Cost Starting at $300 per day

Each resident of the Pavilion has their own one-bedroom or studio apartment, offering them privacy and independence while receiving the specialized care they deserve. Hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings, large windows, and an ensuite restroom come standard and create the perfect sanctuary for when quiet and privacy are preferred.

Exceptional Care

The highly experienced staff in our memory care Pavilion understand how crucial the approach is when working with those encountering dementia challenges. To help create an individualized “person-centric” care approach, we are credentialing as a Montessori Inspired Lifestyle Community™ through the Center for Applied Research in Dementia.

Our onsite Montessori™ Champion ensures we are best-in-class with our services and credentialing this distinctive program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between advanced memory care and regular memory care?

Advanced memory care focuses on Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, Lewy Body dementia, frontotemporal dementia, Parkinson’s disease dementia, and other forms of dementia. Sometimes, those with dementia need personalized care that caregivers cannot provide. In advanced skilled level memory care, residents’ needs are provided by trained RNs, CNAs, and a staff physician. Our recreational therapy director focuses on group and individual activities designed to fight boredom and anxiousness.

How do I know if my loved one needs advanced memory care?

It depends on several factors, and everyone is different:

  • Are they currently living at home or in an assisted living facility and struggling to meet all their needs?
  • Do they require more care than the current caregiver can consistently provide?
