Avamere at Rio Rancho

My parents seem to be doing well since moving into the community. They like to play bingo and have taken advantage of the trips to the store. They are not really fond of the food. The community is clean and the grounds are nice. I would recommend this community

GoodLife Senior Living Los Lunas

We chose Goodlife Senior Living because of the convenience as well as we got a good first impression from them. The room sizes here are good, she has all of her belongings that fit in her space well. The outside patio and the rockers are very nice and it makes it homey for residents so they can be outside when they want to. I would recommend to others looking.
