Recommend for retirement living

I feel safe and secure here because the staff is always ready help. As far as activities, some of us would like to learn some of the games they are playing but they have groups that play together and seem unwilling to teach. As for the food, they should be more aware of folks our age who are low salt and low sugar but please do not do away with moderate seasonings, especially in ethnic foods.

Tour experience

Palmilla Senior Living was one of the first places I visited. I was so impressed until I saw the rooms in their memory care. They were like a jail cell. Tiny and institutional like.

Not recommended for memory care/dementia.

If your loved one has no dementia, has no dementia related behavior issues, and isn't to "loud" it's a great place. However, they cannot handle seniors with dementia -- despite advertising that they can. They waited until we were out of town to dump our parent at the ER and then evicted him -- all contrary to our mutually agreed health plan. Failed to return multiple calls. We had to hear from the hospital that that's what they did. The hospital is making a formal complaint against them to the NM Dept of Health about the "Elder Dumping" -- they (hospital) said this is not the first time that they've done this.

Would Definitely Recommend

I would tell other families looking into Palmilla Senior Living that it is new and very clean. The food is good, and the staff are courteous and caring. Like everywhere these days, they do seem to be slightly understaffed. Especially in serving their Assisted Living sector. I would definitely recommend Palmilla.

My tour of Palmilla Senior Living

I toured this community and it was ok. I didn't like the rooms as much. It's an older facility, but cleanliness was pretty good. I had lunch during my tour and the food wasn't great.

When we first signed up we could see the calendar and it seemed to be loaded with different things. Our loved one is feeling much better with the meals being served - the food seems really nice and health. Overall based on our experience we would recommend the Palmilla Senior Living community to other families.

Tour experience

The tour experience with Palmilla Senior Living was great - this facility was in our top 3 choices. We ended up deciding that we wanted a residential care home just so our loved one could get that one on one attention in a smaller setting.

The best place for my brother

I love this place and think they are amazing. I have nothing negative to say about them. The staff is incredibly considerate, thoughtful, welcoming, and super friendly. I love the executive director, also! Housekeeping is weekly and done well. My brother's room is always very clean. He's happy here. I would absolutely recommend them to friends and family!

nice community

Everything sees to be going really good so far, given everything that is offered and the other surrounding communities the value is good. We have not had a meal there ourselves but our loved one seems to be happy with them. The activities on the memory care side are a little to light. However based on our overall experience so far with Palmilla Senior Living we would recommend them to other families.

They say that they provide emergency care but I would let others know that if you are in independent living, they do not. We have had one accident and had to find out the hard way. The food has been improving within the last week.

My Tour Experience at Palmilla Senior Living

This was a great community. They offered all care types. My loved one wanted a view of the mountains, and this was the downfall as they didn't have any balconies.

Excellent Care During Difficult Time

Excellent staff committed to resident comfort, cleanliness and pain management. Throughout the organization - from the reception staff, marketing/sales personnel, dining room team, housekeeping, caregivers and med techs - all gave strict adherence to resident privacy during an extremely difficult time involving hospice care. Our family could not have asked for better care and kindness.
