An excellent location for anyone needing care for dementia patients

This is the most expensive community in Albuquerque when it comes to vale for cost, but they give amazing care. The cleanliness of the community is very good, the friendliness of the staff and all of their care services are very good. The meals are excellent the nurses are telling us our loved one continues to gain weight which is great. Unfortunately our loved one cannot remember what activities they had, but the nurses tell us all the time our loved one loves getting involved in backing cookies and socializing with the other residents. ...

Definitely a great home away from home

They were very caring and equipped to take care of individuals with Alzheimer's and Dementia. I felt like I was being taken care of too because they were very communicative and thoughtful. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely choose them again and would recommend them to my friends and family.

[name removed] was helpful, friendly and knew residents by their first names, friendly and respectful. Most rooms are shared where beds are foot-to- foot. This was a shift for me but may be beneficial for the residents. Lots of gathering areas, activity room, and large court yard. Appears to have more high needs residents concerned dad may not have enough cognitive stimulation with individuals at his level. Cost is reasonable and dad can “age in place”, we would not have to move him if he needed more medical attention.

I wouldn't mind living here myself

My Mom lives here and she hasn’t had any problems or complaints. The staff interacts with her very well. They stay on top of the cleanliness extremely well. I’ve never seen her room dirty and I go there every day. The food is awesome, it’s almost like eating at a restaurant. My Mom is eating well and there are times when I’m envious that I didn’t get a plate myself. They usually serve the chef’s choice but there seems to be a good variety. I don’t think I’ve seen the same thing being served within the past 2 months. The residents’ beds have alarm sensors in them for added safety and that’s something I really like. If someone falls out of bed or gets up in the middle of the night to wander, the staff is alerted immediately so they check on them. My wife worked in the geriatric healthcare field for about 30 years and even she’s impressed. I have no hesitations in recommending this place.

Did Not Have Any Space

We were very impressed with the site. The community was very clean and well landscaped the building is only a few years old. The staff was very friendly and informed. The residents appeared to be happy. They seem to have different activities to keep the residents busy. At the time of the tour they were full or else I would have chosen this location

Very nice facility and friendly staff that interacted well with residents, nice amenities available but possibly more than what my dad would take advantage of. Somewhat costly

North Ridge gets my recommendation!

The staff do well with the residents. I like the interaction I see between them. The community is clean. They encourage mom to participate in some of the daily activities. The food is really good and they have family gatherings for the holidays. This community has everything on one floor and they have a continuous hallway. There is a transition area at the entrance and exit point of the memory care unit.

True Alzheimer's Unit

This is strictly a true Alzheimer's unit. It was built right next door to Paloma Landing, where my mother used to live, so we took a quick tour of it but the people there were more in the vegetative state. My mother didn't need quite that level of care.
