Over 50 Years Of Serving The Community!
1963 - 2015
Braswell’s Desert Manor is a 58-bed rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility that specializes in providing home-like care for residents with Alzheimer’s or other memory loss disorders. Our facility is located in Yucca Valley seven miles from the High Desert Medical Center and about 40 miles from Eisenhower hospital in Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs. Our facility is one of only a few facilities (and the only one in the Yucca Valley area) that is locked and is a secure facility for those residents who have memory impairments and may try to wander.
We have a Registered Nurse on duty during the day, seven days a week and our professional staff is dedicated to providing person-centered care to our residents. We offer rehabilitative treatment and progressive restorative services in a warm, home-like setting that maximizes comfort, provides support and encourages independence.
When home is no longer the best option, Braswell’s Desert Manor strives to provide “Quality Care with Love” in a friendly, comforting environment.
Activities & Amenities
Staying mentally, physically and spiritually engaged is an important part of everyone’s health and well-being; we offer a broad range of daily recreational, social and religious pursuits. All residents have the option to have in-room activities. The Activity Department offers a variety of projects, including an activity cart that is available to go the rooms of those residents who are unable to attend group activities. The facility shares a van with the two sister facilities in the area to take our residents on outings and to other off-site activities including doctor appointments.
Meals & Dining
A Registered Dietician consultant develops all seasonal menus. We serve three meals daily with snacks and nourishments provided periodically throughout each day. There are special meals served for holiday celebrations. Therapeutic diets are followed according to the physician’s orders. We also provide specialized meals for diabetic and dialysis-dependent residents. Our facility has a dining room where residents can enjoy their meals and socialize with friends. Our residents may also choose to have their meals served inside their rooms.
We encourage personalization of resident’s rooms for an added touch of warmth and comfort. Visitors are welcome 7 days a week, usually from 11 am to 8 pm. Under certain circumstances the visiting hours may be extended.

“Being able to decorate my Mom's room with personal items made her feel at home. This was one of the deciding factors in our decision to select Desert Manor as new home for our Mom.”
