    We are committed to raising the standard of adult assisted living and to maximizing the quality of life of our residents. Everyone has one or two things that are important to them. We seek to find and meet those needs. We are located near the Catalina Mountains on 1 acre with patios, views and a fountain with a plan to develop raised gardens for our residents. We have been called a "sanctuary" by more than one resident who has had the opportunity to experience our home environment.
