When it comes to choosing the best retirement home for you or a loved one, research and compare award-winning providers in Albuquerque. Senior Advisor makes this easy for you by awarding only the providers with consistently high ratings and reviews the Best of Senior Living award. This annual award is based on the ratings from residents, residents’ families, and visitors. The following is a small list of the 2016 winners.
If you still live independently, but are beginning to need help with small tasks, like personal care, housekeeping, or meal preparation, an assisted living community may be the perfect home for you.
The Woodmark at Uptown takes care of the little things for you, including housekeeping. If you need assistance with activities for daily living (ADLs), the caring staff can create a personalized plan for you. They offer plenty of amenities and activities to keep you active and engaged.
One reviewer commented, “This is a great community. Both of my parents have received excellent care with the great staff who are very helpful all the time. The meals and the dining experience is wonderful and a good variety. My mother, brother, sisters and I would highly recommend this for other families for excellent care for loved ones.”
Palmilla Senior Living has won the Best of Senior Living award two years in a row (2015 and 2016). They offer studio apartments, one bedroom apartments, and two bedroom apartments.
One reviewer wrote that she was pleased with the staff’s ability to handle emergencies, “Today brought another health emergency, and Palmilla staff running to the aid of my loved one. Elizabeth and her amazing staff give me enormous peace of mind. They step in with all the necessary solutions and loving care. And they keep me fully informed, a trait I greatly appreciate.”
Residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia need specialized care that can be intensive as the disease progresses. Memory care centers provide an extra layer of security to keep your loved one from wandering off.
The Woodmark at Uptown (see Assisted Living, above) provides the extra care and security required for residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. There are nurses on staff and a doctor is always on call. The center provides occupational, physical, and speech therapy if needed and hospice is available.
One reviewer wrote about her father’s experience, “Things are going very well since moving my father to The Woodmark at Uptown. He is adjusting well to being in their memory care. We are slowly introducing family members to visit him there. He is eating well and their meals are great.”
Retirement communities are perfect for active seniors that no longer want the responsibility of the maintenance of a home, but still want a nice place to live within a community.
Senior Star at Las Colinas Village offers plenty of activities – over 130 engaging activities per month. You can relax on the grounds and admire the flowers and landscaping or lounge in one of the indoor common areas. Several reviewers remarked about the well-kept rooms and good food that is offered.
