10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Albuquerque, NM

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Albuquerque, New Mexico, is an inviting Southwestern city with stunning mountain vistas, wonderful cultural attractions, and an average of over 300 days of sunshine per year. Albuquerque residents tend to be especially family-oriented, making senior care and quality of life an essential priority. Since keeping aging loved ones in the care of a younger generation is not possible for all families, Albuquerque’s care communities strive to bridge the gap and foster warm relationships with senior residents and their family members for a full spectrum of care, from physical well-being to mental health and quality of life.

Most of Albuquerque’s memory care facilities are integrated with additional care types, such as assisted living. The city also features residential memory care facilities, which are typically single-family homes adapted to accommodate multiple senior residents. A Place for Mom partners with 18 memory care communities within a 10-mile radius of the Albuquerque city center. Over half of these communities are residential, offering a familial setting in a peaceful neighborhood.

We’ve created this useful guide to Albuquerque memory care based on our extensive senior living experience, proprietary data, and access to local senior living experts. Find information about payment options, health and safety regulations, and other resources for Albuquerque memory care below.

VA benefits for memory care in Albuquerque
VA benefits for Albuquerque memory care

If your loved one is a U.S. military veteran, they may be able to receive benefits from the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that can help cover costs of memory care. The VA offers a Veterans Pension to qualified veterans. This pension serves as monthly income to veterans who qualify based on factors such as age, disability, wartime service, and income. As a form of income, the pension is to be used as the qualifying veteran chooses.

Aid and Attendance

An additional VA benefit that may be used for memory care is the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. To qualify for the Aid and Attendance benefit, the senior veteran must already receive a pension, be enrolled in VA health care, and meet at least one of the following:

  • Need assistance with some activities of daily living
  • Spend most of the day in bed due to untreated illness
  • Have a qualifying disability
  • Have a qualifying visual impairment

The Aid and Attendance benefit is a stipend that can be used by eligible veterans and their spouses however they choose. It is additional pension disability income meant to cover anything that improves the disabled veteran’s quality of life.

The approval process for the Aid and Attendance benefit can be difficult, and approval often requires assistance or advocacy. New Mexico residents can receive assistance from veteran service officers (VSOs) through field offices located all around the state. Veteran service officers are fellow veterans who are familiar with benefits offerings and are able to assist veterans in getting the most out of their eligibility.

New Mexico State Veterans’ Home

New Mexico has a state-of-the-art veterans’ nursing facility with a unit dedicated to caring for veterans with dementia. The New Mexico State Veterans’ Home (NMSVH) is located in Truth or Consequences to the southwest of Albuquerque. The cost of care for eligible veterans will depend on their income and level of need. If you think the NMSVH would be the right choice for your veteran loved one, you can submit a simple application for admission. With beds for 39 memory care residents and 20 residents in need of skilled nursing, eligible veterans may have to spend some time on a waitlist, so it’s best to apply promptly.

VA benefits assistance

For assistance with finding veterans benefits for New Mexico residents, you can contact your local veterans office or check out the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services webpage. The New Mexico Judiciary Branch offers information on additional community resources for veterans, such as food and assistance, medical centers, housing assistance, rehabilitation, and more. New Mexico also has specialized departments for aiding veterans of foreign wars and for veterans with disabilities.

Albuquerque Medicaid for memory care

Medicaid is federal- and state-funded medical insurance for individuals with low incomes or disabilities. New Mexico’s Medicaid program is called Centennial Care. While each state’s Medicaid program is a little different, all Medicaid programs must follow federal guidelines. Medicaid does not cover the cost of a memory care facility; however, eligible New Mexico seniors may be able to use Medicaid to cover costs of other care services within a memory care or other assisted living facility.

Home and community-based services (HCBS) waivers

The New Mexico Centennial Care Community Benefit Program offers waiver programs that can pay for care services in the patient’s choice of residence, either in a private home or assisted living. These waiver programs are known as home and community-based services (HCBS) waivers.

The community benefit can be used to cover costs of services such as the following:

  • Medical care services, including dementia care[03]
  • Adult day services
  • Personal care services, such as assistance with activities of daily living
  • Specialized therapies
  • Home modifications, such as support railings, wheelchair ramps, emergency call systems, etc.
  • Transitional costs for transfer between care facilities

“Community benefits” through these waiver programs are benefits that are offered to seniors living in the community. In this case, “in the community” simply means that the senior is not in a skilled nursing facility, so they can receive benefits while living in their own homes, the home of a loved one, or in a memory care or assisted living facility. In order to receive benefits, New Mexico seniors must be enrolled in a Centennial Care Managed Care Organization (MCO) and the agency providing the care services must be contracted with that MCO.

Read the Centennial Care Community Benefit brochure to understand more about this program that can provide care in your loved one’s chosen place of residence.

Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

Residents of New Mexico who are 55 or older and who receive Medicaid may also be eligible for the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE. New Mexico’s PACE program is also known as InnovAge New Mexico PACE.

Through PACE, qualified seniors can have all of their care services coordinated into a comprehensive care plan. In order to qualify, New Mexico seniors must require a nursing facility level of support but continue living in the community — meaning in their own home, the home of a loved one, or an assisted living facility, a memory care facility, or a group home.[04]

Albuquerque residents can manage their care through the New Mexico Human Services Department (NMHSD) and the New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services Department (ALSTD). The ALSTD has several Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) where New Mexico residents can receive additional support with Medicare, Medicaid, and other services. Below you’ll find links to these resources, as well as other tools and call centers that can help you apply for and access benefits.

Medicare memory care coverage in Albuquerque

Medicare is a federally-funded program designed to extend health coverage to Americans aged 65+ and individuals with qualifying disabilities. Medicare does not cover the cost of a memory care facility. However, it may be used to cover the senior’s medical care.

Medicare has multiple parts that cover different aspects of health care and may include the following:

  • Skilled nursing care or hospital stays
  • Doctors’ services, medical services, and medical supplies
  • Prescription medications

You can find more information on Medicare costs and coverage by visiting the federal Medicare website or reaching out to one of your local Albuquerque Social Security Administration offices. Qualified seniors may get help paying for Medicare deductibles and premiums through Medicare Savings Programs. You may also be able to use Medicare to help cover your Medicaid premiums through dual enrollment. Take a look at the Medicare-Medicaid Dual Enrollee State Profile – New Mexico to learn more.

Additionally, a local long-term care (LTC) ombudsman can help your loved one access the benefits they qualify for and advocate for their rights. An LTC ombudsman can also investigate complaints from residents of long-term care and help ensure that seniors receive the quality of care they deserve.

  • Medication administration assistance
  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Recreation and social activities
  • Housekeeping and laundry services

The state’s memory care regulations also include the following staff requirements:

    • Administrator: A staff member in charge of the daily operations of the assisted living facility.
    • Direct care staff: Trained staff who offer personal care and supervision

    • Two direct care workers and one additional staff member per 61 to 120 residents

Memory care facilities are required to follow state building code standards, including the following:

  • Memory care facilities cannot house more residents than the maximum bed capacity that their license allows.
  • All of the buildings on the memory care facility property need to be licensed. All indoor spaces that will be used by residents must pass inspection for health and safety purposes.
  • Memory care facilities must be accessible for individuals with disabilities or those requiring a wheelchair.
  • Memory care facilities must have a minimum of one bathroom (including toilet and bath/shower facility) to every eight residents.

Additionally, memory care facilities must keep the following documentation on the premises:

  • Fire inspection report
  • Zoning approval report
  • Certificate of occupancy
  • Approved building plan
  • Pet vaccination records (if applicable)
  • Most recent inspection report
  • Copy of “Requirements for Assisted Living Facilities for Adults (7.8.2 NMAC)”[05]

Inspection reports on New Mexico senior care facilities can be viewed through a search of the Health Care Provider Survey Reports. To look up a particular facility’s inspection report using this tool, select the category of care provider from the drop down menu, and then narrow your search by entering the county, the city, or the name of the specific organization you’re searching for.

Memory care facilities are required to have a diagnosis from each resident’s physician of their need to be in memory care. Memory care facilities may require secured indoor and outdoor environments. A memory care facility or secured unit must have at least one awake staff member at all times.[05]

COVID-19 regulations for Albuquerque memory care facilities

Most COVID-19 restrictions in New Mexico have been lifted. However, New Mexico skilled nursing and assisted living communities, including memory care, continue to have a few guidelines in place.

Single icon image

Testing. Nursing homes and assisted living communities in Albuquerque must not admit visitors who have tested positive for COVID-19 until 10 days past their positive test, provided that they have no symptoms at that time.

Single icon image

Masking. Visitors to nursing and assisted living facilities are encouraged to wear a face mask, especially if they are visiting a resident who has tested positive for COVID-19.

What to expect from memory care living in Albuquerque

Albuquerque is rich in culture, with wonderful food, music, and scenery. Characteristic of the Southwestern United States, Albuquerque is also a very family-focused area. While many families prefer to care for their aging loved ones in their home, this is not a viable option for every family. Albuquerque memory care communities strive to be as family-forward as possible.

Explore the unique aspects of Albuquerque memory care below.

Residential setting

A Place for Mom partners with nine residential care homes in Albuquerque. Unlike larger senior care facilities, residential care homes are typically single-family homes that have been modified to accommodate a limited number of senior residents. Residential care homes are micro-communities, and generally offer a higher staff-to-resident ratio in a home-like environment. Smaller communities like these can be ideal for memory care, as residents may have less to overwhelm them and fewer new faces to get used to.

Albuquerque residential communities typically offer both assisted living and memory care. Residential communities’ neighborhood settings give them a cozy, often quiet atmosphere, and their small size can give residents a sense of normalcy. Albuquerque residential care homes are subject to the same regulation standards as other assisted living facilities. Residents are offered quality meals, care services, laundry and housekeeping, and enrichment activities, but may also receive more one-on-one attention due to the size of the community.

Multiple levels of care

Many Albuquerque memory care facilities are integrated with senior living communities that offer multiple types of care, such as combinations of assisted living, independent living, and skilled nursing. A Place for Mom partners with seven multi-leveled communities that include memory care. These communities make it easier for residents to transition to a support level that fits them if their needs change in the future. This enables residents to age in place without the stress of having to switch communities. As there are not always enough memory care openings to meet demands in the area, these multi-level care communities also enable seniors in mild stages of dementia to begin in assisted living even when memory care is full. Multiple care types together also offer more variety among residents, often giving more opportunity for friendships and community engagement, regardless of an individual’s specific level of need.

Amenities

Many of Albuquerque’s assisted living communities offer amenities like movie theaters, barber shop/beauty salons, fitness centers, and restaurant-style dining, so that residents can keep up their usual routines and pleasures without the hassle of a commute. Memory care communities often have secure areas where residents can safely take walks and maintain their autonomy, while also ensuring their safety. These communities also offer activities designed to support cognitive function to improve seniors’ quality of life.
