Case Study: Desert Valley Skilled Nursing

Client Overview

Desert Valley Skilled Nursing is a renowned skilled nursing facility located in the heart of the Arizona desert. Known for its compassionate care and state-of-the-art facilities, Desert Valley Skilled Nursing offers a range of services aimed at enhancing the health and wellbeing of its residents.


Desert Valley Skilled Nursing faced a significant challenge in showcasing their expansive and newly renovated facility to potential residents and their families who were unable to visit in person due to geographical constraints or health concerns. The facility needed an innovative solution to provide a realistic and engaging experience of their environment and services.


The primary objective was to create a comprehensive and interactive virtual tour that would:

  • Allow potential residents and their families to explore the facility from anywhere, at any time.
  • Highlight key areas of the nursing home, including patient rooms, common areas, therapy facilities, and outdoor spaces.
  • Enhance the facility’s online presence and marketing efforts.
