Meet the Owner

Ana Gabriela Istrate immigrated to the United States from Romania in July of 1999, a decade after the fall of the communist regime that reigned over the small European country. She found work as a caregiver in an assisted living home where she discovered her passion for the field. Her strong determination and willpower guided her and her husband to later purchasing the home and founding Golden Age Residential Care I in January of 2001. She later went on to open another home and Golden Age II opened its doors in October 2003.

Gabriela is an acknowledged leader in the Arizona Assisted Living community. She is certified as both an Assisted Living Manager and a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP). Gabriela is a Board Member of the Arizona Assisted Living Homes Association (AALHA) and past member of Professional Association of Senior Referral Specialists (PASRS) , AZ ALFA and HSP West, all of which are professional organizations for the senior living industry.

What Others Have To Say

"I feel that your home - the care, the time, the music, the food - all make everyone feel like they have a second family. The residents are not just people you care for, but your extended family."

- Kathy G.

"The care my father received from the Istrate's was excellent. That was the only place where he was comfortable. They provided me with peace of mind. They always took the time to listen to my father and were patient with him. I will always be grateful to them."

- Jay H.

"We cannot adequately express how pleased we are with the personal attention you showed our mother. You treated her as a member of your family, with dignity and respect."
