My Review

My loved one ended up getting out in the middle of the night. The door was unlocked, and the alarm did not sound. She was found 5-6 hours later, but she never recovered from the traumatic experience. The facility was nice and clean. The staff was nice. The food was okay, not great. Up until the time she got out she was doing okay. After her getting out and subsequently declining, it was just a bad experience, and I would not recommend it.

My review of Avamere at Rio Rancho

My loved one is a resident here and things have gone well so far. I really like the facility. The staff takes great care of the residents and are very much on top of things. They're constantly on the go and are really attentive to the residents. They read to my loved one every evening and have a good variety of activities. Administration is very on top of things here, as well. It's a good atmosphere here and the food is good!

Would Recommend

Everybody is friendly. My loved one needs minimal help, but what they do help with, they do very well. And they have a variety of activities, so there should be something for everybody there. I would recommend them to other families.

A great place to consider for a loved one

Overall, I'm very pleased with this facility for dad. My only suggestion for improvement would be the food. It's often served cold. I'm not sure if it's because they take orders and get behind, but I'd like to see that get better. Housekeeping is once a week, his room is always clean and bed linens are changed weekly. Trash is taken out daily. The staff has been very kind and helpful. Communication with the family is good. I would recommend them to friends and family.

Our Tour Experience

Compared to the place we ended up choosing, I didn't feel as upbeat about Avamere at Rio Rancho. I can't describe it, it was just a feeling when you walked in. I didn’t feel like they were prepared, and they even admitted that to me. They basically just showed me the rooms, which didn't have any patios.

Happy at first but as time went on, I became less happy.

At first I was very happy with them. As time went on, I was unhappy. They will not communicate. It doesn't matter how many times you call them and leave a message, they will not call you back. And that's not just one person. That's everybody there. For the most part they did a good job with his care, although at times I felt he wasn't getting what he needed. But it wasn't too bad. I didn't think they had enough activities. I was thoroughly shocked by the cost, but it was the same price at other places all over town.

my review of avamere

The staff and nurses were really good. I did not care for the administration. The patient-to-staff ratio needed to be better. I think they were at a 15-1 ratio. I would not recommend this community to others right now.

Nighttime staff isn't up to par

I first picked this facility because they had immediate openings and they fit within our budget. Everything started out great but then in the last few weeks, it really hasn't been a good experience. The day to day direct staff does a very good job and most of them really care. The nighttime staff just isn't up to par. They don't follow through and they are making decisions that aren't good for my loved one. There have been a number of medical issues and the follow through wasn't as I hoped it would be. There's just very little follow. I just feel like there have been occurrences happening about every other day or every few days. Also, this is a memory care unit and I really haven't seen much activity happening in terms of memory care. I would not recommend this facility.

Brookdale Rio Rancho

I was going to tour Brookdale while looking for options for my mother’s respite care. I corresponded a great deal with the staff and the director over phone and email, and I just decided that I didn’t feel comfortable placing my mother there. It didn’t feel like a good fit.

Mom's Active Needs

We toured this community and the staff was nice and caring. the director did make a good impression on me. The community was clean and we liked the activities that are offered. We would recommend that families tour this community. We did not get the feeling that we wanted for my mom due to her needing a more active community.

Going well

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

No complaints

They offer some daily activities including bingo and a spiritual service in the mornings. Mom enjoys the food and she has made some friends. The residents are nice and this is a comfortable community. The community is clean and well maintained. The staff are efficient. I would recommend this community.

Friendly staff and they seemed happy. Facility is clean and fresh but could use some upkeep. Back hallways seemed dark and dingy. Cottages were very appealing with wonderful landscaping and convenient parking. Maybe encourage residents to smoke in less conspicuous outdoor spaces rather than front parking lot.

They Were Confused About Their Pricing

We were going to move in but when it came to the finances it seemed sketchy. I spoke with someone there and she quoted me 3 different prices for one room. I was not comfortable with the fluctuation of pricing. It was all good until it came up to this finances.

Didn't like what I heard!

I did not tour this Brookdale because my loved ones that are firefighters in this area advised me not to. They said that when a resident falls and calls for help, the staff don't go check on them, they just call the fire department and a lot of times the residents just need help getting up. It defiantly did not sound like a place I would want to put my Mother in.
