Assisted Living

Support You Can Count On

We welcome each resident and their family into our home’s extended family, where every individual is celebrated, cherished and connected.

During the initial transition, we make every effort to ease your elderly loved one into a comfortable and enjoyable space, offering tailored assisted living options to suit their preferences and needs.

We strive to enable our residents to lead their most independent and autonomous lives in a way that keeps them happy, healthy and cared for with the following amenities:

  • Intimate Community Setting – Easy to navigate, our inviting community features private and semi-private accommodations, spacious and beautifully decorated common areas, and a beautifully landscaped outdoor area offering a place for our residents to enjoy fresh air with friends and family.
  • Personalized Assistance – Each resident is evaluated to allow us to offer the specific services that they need to maintain their independence. Our staff can assist with everything from personal hygiene to medication monitoring and management. We get to know our residents and watch for changes that indicate the need to change or increase their level of care.
  • Healthy, tasty meals – Our staff delights in bringing the residents the best local produce and ingredients to make their dining experience a joy every day.
  • Never a dull moment – Our community calendar is filled with the scheduled daily activities at our assisted living home designed to make every day special. To stay active, we offer activities, social gatherings and fitness sessions that are appropriate for a variety of skills, interests and senior needs.

Our Managers

a paradise for parents- laura medina

Laura Medina

Laura was born in the small town of Aguascalientes, New Mexico. She lived there for her first couple of years before moving with her family to Colton, California. After graduating from high school in Colton, she moved over to Arizona where she worked in the hotel industry. She started in customer service, then worked through jobs such as porter and housekeeping. Soon her hard work paid off and the hotel promoted her to run the front desk. 

At that time she was also starting a family that would eventually grow into seven children. Her motherly instincts really showed as she cared for so many children. When someone told her about becoming a caregiver, she knew it would be a great fit for her.

Laura is our newest manager and has hit the ground running in her new role. Her enthusiasm is spreading quickly through the whole home. Everyone loves Laura and her amazing nutritious recipes. She is constantly pushing residents to exercise, go for walks and participate in lots of fun activities. It is a true joy to have Laura on our staff!


Lydia Marquez

Lydia was born in Manila in the beautiful islands of the Philippines. She made her way over to the United States in 1993, and became a caregiver 21 years ago in 1996. Her first caregiving job was a real baptism of fire. She started in a very large 300 bed facility in California!

After three years in the large facility, Lydia was looking for something different. She gradually made her way to Arizona in 1999 and has been here ever since. She became certified as a caregiver in Arizona in 2000 and managed five care homes in Scottsdale for 5 years. Managing five homes can be quite a task, but Lydia was up to it. After a while though, she was ready for something different.

In 2005 Lydia saw an opportunity to run the home she is in now and never looked back. She has managed the Paradise for Parents home since 2005 and we love having her. She is the rock that helps hold our care homes together, and she is always ready with a joke and a smile!

Lydia lives with her husband about two blocks from the home she manages. Her husband is also a caregiver in Lydia’s home, and he certainly knows who is the boss!


Nora Chapman

After being born and raised in the Philippines, Nora took a job as a court reporter for 26 years. But soon she found her true calling as a caregiver and manager for assisted living.

Nora wasn’t completely sold on the idea of coming to the United States permanently. Between 2001 and 2006 she was traveling back and forth between her homeland and the US, as she started to look more and more into working in assisted living.

By 2006 her mind was made up. She would move to the United States and work in assisted living full time. Like many other people in assisted living, she started as a caregiver in 2006 and worked her way up to head caregiver and then manager in 2013 for another group home. She moved to Surprise permanently in 2008 and worked at another home close to Royal Paradise until 2015. In 2015 she had two jobs, working at Royal Paradise and her other home. Then in 2016, she switched to running Royal Paradise full-time. We are sure happy to have her.

Nora has two daughters and lives with her husband in the same neighborhood as Royal Paradise. It’s easy for her to run over and make sure things are running well.


Aurora Flores

Aurora Flores is the manager for our Goodyear home. She brings a wealth of caregiving experience to her home and the residents love how much she cares.

Aurora was born in Chihuahua Mexico and lived there until she was in Junior High School. She moved to the US in 1989 with her family and spent the rest of her teen years in El Paso.

She started at a home in Glendale in 2003 where she quickly found her true calling as a caregiver. She loved it so much, she worked her way up to obtain her manager’s license in 2010.

She joined A Paradise for Parents early in 2016 and has been here ever since. Like many of our other managers, she lives close by and treats A Paradise for Parents as her second home. We are very lucky to have her!

Aurora is married and has one son as well.
