I've have the pleasure of getting to know Chris and Desert Haven Home Care in supporting his efforts to ensure a fully compliant assisted living home. DHHC provides outstanding care for the elderly residents. I highly recommend anyone looking for residential assisted living in the Phoenix area to take tour of his care home and see his high standards of care in a safe and comfortable home environment.
I want to thank you and your organization for the outstanding job that you did caring for my father these last couple months - the care enabled my father to spend his last months in his home and with his friends- my brother and I really appreciate the effort that you made - I think it made a big difference in the quality of my father's life.
