72 Residential Care Homes near Albuquerque, NM

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

Residential care homes in Albuquerque may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Albuquerque care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Albuquerque, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Residential Care Home facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Renaissance, Heritage Hills and High Desert.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Rio Rancho, Corrales or Los Ranchos de Albuquerque.

Recent reviews of Residential Care Home in Albuquerque, NM
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.
