Coronado Villa Retirement Resort in Albuquerque, NM

My wife and I are very happy here. The other residents are very nice and friendly, the staff is great, and we really couldn’t ask for anything better. The staff is right on beck and call. We put in a request with the manager to have someone come up and help us set up the TV and move things around to our liking. The maintenance person came and did everything for us just how we wanted it to be done. We also have our own washer and dryer. Every staff member knows us by first name and the service in the dining area is great. The food is also great. I really like that we have an ample amount of time to go to the cafeteria and eat when we want to. Right now, this is the best independent living facility in town.

Brookdale Tramway Ridge in Albuquerque, NM

For the most part things went well. At times it was difficult to get hold of the upper staff or office staff for assistance. The staff that took care of my mom daily were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and there were activities for my mom to attend.
