Aptly named for the beautiful flowering succulent that thrives in the desert, Desert Rose retirement community offers a tranquil, resort-like setting in, literally, the sunniest place on Earth. This senior living community is nestled among neighborhoods, located next door to a NextCare Urgent care as well as a bowling alley that offers special senior hours and leagues.

The true Southwest awaits you in Yuma, Arizona. Spend an afternoon browsing the shops at Yuma Palms Regional Center. Stroll through one of the area’s several parks. Or enjoy old-fashioned refreshments at the Back In Time Pie Shoppe, all within 3 miles of our independent living community. Receive top notch medical care at the Yuma Regional Medical Center, just a mile and a half away.

Desert Rose is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2019 Great Place to Work certification, and the 2018 Great Place to Work certification.

Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site

The convenience of Desert Rose's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.

Our beautician has been working at Desert Rose since we opened 24 years ago. People from the outside community even come here for beauty services.

Fitness Right at Home

Desert Rose residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

Get some fresh air and catch up with friends during a stroll on the walkway around the community. Swim some laps in our outdoor covered and heated swimming pool. There are many opportunities for healthy movement.

Let Us Serve You

Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and care by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Desert Rose's dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.

Residents love our chef's gourmet hamburgers and enjoy monthly chef chats to provide input on menus.

Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Yuma area, and Peninsula makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Complimentary transportation provides residents with easy access to a variety of local activities, events and attractions, including a bi-monthly “Lunch Bunch” outing to resident-selected restaurants, field trips to the lake, casino outings, and scenic country drives.

Life is Never Boring

Desert Rose’s comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

Plant flowers and herbs in our community garden bed. Engage in some friendly competition during our staff versus resident bean bag baseball and cornhole tournaments. Watch our weekly movie matinees. Reap the benefits of laughter and yoga in "Laughter Yoga."

Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Desert Rose. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets is. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Residents and pets love our dog-walking area. We have a family of cats that residents and staff feed regularly. We also have a cute little roadrunner that visits our community daily.

Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

Desert Rose is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use community desktop computers to stay up to date, or you can connect your personal devices to the WiFi.

We offer Technology Tuesdays, where you can get help with smartphones and tablets and learn more about technology and how to avoid online scams.

Travel and Adventure Is Available

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Lend a Helping Hand

Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Residents host school supply drives and support Crossroads Mission, a faith-based, non-profit organization that serves those in need in the community of Yuma, Arizona.

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
