This Veterans Day πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ , we want to shine a light on one of the remarkable souls in our senior community, a true American hero - Jack. A veteran of the United States Navy, Jack's story is a testament to bravery, service, and humility. Jack was a ship mechanic stationed right here in the ...heart of the United States.

Jack stands as a living testament to a bygone era in the company of over 16 million Americans who served during World War II. Today, with less than 120,000 veterans from that time still among us, Jack's presence is a precious link to a chapter in history that shaped our world.

One of the most remarkable qualities about Jack is his reluctance to consider himself any different from his fellow veterans. He embodies the spirit of unity that binds those who have served, recognizing the shared sacrifice and dedication that defines their collective experience.

So, let's join together in expressing our gratitude to Jack and all veterans, not just on this special day but every day. Let's honor their service, their sacrifices, and the enduring legacy of freedom they have bestowed upon us.

Thank you, Jack, for your selfless service and the quiet inspiration you bring to our community. Your humility and dedication are an inspiration to us all ❀️ πŸ’™

David Hatfield gave us a wonderful tour of his lovely property. He was friendly, caring and funny. Feeling comfortable with the person helping you make a decision of this magnitude is very important. Our thanks to David for his kindness; we very much enjoyed touring the Gardens at Ocotillo.

The Gardens was a very relaxing time for me. Two staff members made it an excellent experience and those staff members were David and Mary Beth.

As a business owner myself I have continued to be impressed with the level of service, the quality of care, cleanliness of the facility and the constant communication that this senior living facility provides. My Dad has been a resident there for almost 2 years and things continue to get better and better. We researched and visited many facilities here in the valley before deciding on this one as my Dad has previously been at another community that was not a place I would recommend. Gardens of Ocotillo stand far above the rest and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place for their loved ones. Even through the crazy Covid year they have been absolutely AMAZING and their transparent communication has been greatly appreciated. Each time I am there it is so obvious how much they love each one of their residents. I have several friends who’s parents are in other communities in the valley and unfortunately they don’t have great things to say and it’s such a shame. I am so great full for everyone who works there and cares so much for my sweet Dad. 5+ stars all around to them.

I would give 6 stars if I could! The Gardens of Ocotillo is so great with my grandpa Bob. I was so hesitant with finding the right fit for my family but I couldn’t be happier. Besides the fact that it’s beautiful and up-kept, the staff here really does love what they do. It’s such a community feel which is rare for these places! I used to work in several locations being a caregiver, so I can say first hand how great the people here are! Everyone seems to know everyone, and the energy is always so positive and warm. If you’re looking for a peaceful, inviting, engaging place for your loved one... this is it!

Look no further; this is the perfect place for you or your loved ones to live. I found this community for my parents, and they have lived in both assisted and independent apartments, either way, you cannot go wrong. The staff here is accommodating and friendly. They know and care about all of the residents. The apartments are beautiful, and the property includes a pool, a few different types of rec rooms, a gym, movie theater, and a library. The staff ensure there are a wide variety of activities each day, movies, trivia, bowling on the Wii (surprisingly popular), bingo, arts and crafts, themed meals, happy hours, various outings, etc. They've even been known to have specialists come in for hands-on assistance with handheld devices for residents. I really can't say enough how grateful I am for the Gardens at Ocotillo and their staff.The precautions they've taken to ensure residents have been safe during COVID has been outstanding. Meals to their rooms ( based off the resident ordering from a menu in advanced), regular communications including town hall meetings from the doorways of their apartments, no non-essential outside visitors, etc. I'm happy and comfortable with my family being a member of this community.If you're looking for yourself or a family member, I highly recommend visiting this community.

I visited the Gardens of Ocotillo and was immediately impressed. Of course their building is beautiful, but what impressed me the most was the staff interaction with their residents, the smiles on the residents faces and you could truly see the staff loves what they do. I was toured by Dave and he was kind and warm. He knew the residents names and as he toured me he would always greet his residents as they passed by. I would definitely recommend this community if your looking for a place that will keep your loved engaged and happy.

The Gardens & Staff are Great!Our mother has lived at the Gardens for almost 2 years. Recently she moved to a new larger apartment. The staff, especially Tammy Ojwang, Executive Director, was helpful, expeditious and efficient throughout the entire process. She kept us informed at each step of the process, ensuring my mother's care and happiness with the change was paramount, keeping the family fully informed. The Gardens is a beautiful facility, well appointed with awesome staff & leadership. We and our mother is extremely happy living at the Gardens! We highly recommend this complex!!

The Gardens at Ocotillo has created such a beautiful environment of love, caring, laughter and community. My parents moved in about a year ago, and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. The entire staff treats the residents with respect and kindness. After my dad past away, Mom was surrounded by people who truly cared and showered her with love, both from the other residents and the staff. I can't say enough about the Gardens at Ocotillo.. Thank you for all you do!
