Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Albuquerque, NM
GoodLife Senior Living Los Lunas
4.7

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.

Westwind House Assisted Living in Albuquerque, NM
4.5

My mom is eating the meal. It is not like home cooking but I think it is good. The staff are good people who help out very well. I am pleased that she is getting taken care of.The staff assist with her ADL and there has been no problems. A Place For Mom helped us find this community. They are able to provide the most care for her needs.

Harmony House in Rio Rancho, NM
5.0

Harmony is a wonderful Residential Care Facility. The facility is three houses which hold about 8 to 10 residents each. There are one person bedrooms and bedrooms that are cut in half, so there will be two people per room. There are three houses, not a 100 people housed in one big building. They are cozy, warm and decorated as you would decorate your home. The meals are home-cooked and so are the snacks! My mother, who is 90 years old lives in one of them. There are always two or more staff on hand. They cook, clean, and take care of all residents. They provide the nursing staff, and calls on medical teams that are needed for each client. My mother has her doctor stop by, her foot nurse who takes care of her feet, and even x-ray technician stop by as needed. For activities there are the TV in every room and in the living room. There are books to read and people that stop by to paint nails, dance, and pray with the clients. The residents and staff takes walks and there are bar-b-ques in the back of the house. [Name removed], the owner, is understanding about the cost of the facility. [Name removed] can bend the rules a little when the family of the clients have financial hardships. It is such a relief to have someone understand the difficulties of having a loved one in a Living Assistance Facility. Lastly, it feels like home and your loved one is safe and loved.
