I visit at least 3 times a week and feel like I have a real sense of the place and what consistently happens here. Except when painting or...

The rooms are beautiful, and I love how there is a...

Information About Retirement Communities in Albuquerque

Information About Retirement Communities in Albuquerque

Albuquerque is one of the top 50 most populated cities in the United States, and it is the largest city in New Mexico, with more than 500,000 residents living within its limits. It sidles up to the Rio Grande River in the central part of the state and borders the Sandia Mountains in the east. Albuquerque is the birthplace of Microsoft, and the company was headquartered there from 1975 to 1979. IMG_8472-B Tram

The city of Albuquerque “grew up” alongside the famous Route 66 highway, which is now Central Avenue in Albuquerque. Historic Route 66 signs still adorn old Route 66, and local businesses wishing to continue the aesthetic traditions often erect newer signs in the famous bright, buzzing neon that became synonymous with the nostalgic highway. The geographic center of New Mexico, Albuquerque is known as “The Land of Enchantment.” With dry and temperate seasons along with ample history and culture, Albuquerque is a pleasant and attractive place to live for all ages, but retirement communities in Albuquerque are becoming increasingly appealing to seniors.

Organizations Serving Seniors in Albuquerque

There are several senior centers serving Albuquerque, offering classes, all manner of recreation, vacations, and trips tailored to retirees and their caregivers, along with continuing education opportunities for those interested in lifelong learning. The City of Albuquerque runs a multitude of locations serving residents of Albuquerque retirement communities and other area seniors. Additionally, the city offers an array of senior advocacy organizations – like the New Mexico State Agency on Aging and the Albuquerque Family Advocacy Center – where seniors and their loved ones can find invaluable resources on the legal, physical, and emotional issues surrounding the care and comfort of New Mexico’s aging citizens.

Albuquerque Senior-Friendly Activities

Albuquerque offers many senior-friendly activities. Every spring, the Butterfly Pavilion opens its doors for the annual butterfly exhibit, and later in September, the Fall Fiesta of Flowers invites guests to explore the beauty of autumn foliage and floral growth at ABQ BioPark. Fun and educational opportunities abound at the Botanic Garden, Zoo and Tingley Beach. This, and other outdoor and indoor adventures await eager seniors and their caregivers. The retirement living experience in Albuquerque continuously offers events for all generations. For breathtaking views of Albuquerque’s canyons and beautiful terrains, a trip on the Sandia Peak Tramway is in order. From the observation deck atop the 10,378 foot Sandia Peak, an incredible vantage point awaits you with an 11,000 square foot panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley and the Land of Enchantment.

Albuquerque Medical Facilities

One of the many reasons Albuquerque retirement communities are so appealing to seniors and their caregivers is the number of state-of-the-art medical facilities that offer excellent and award-winning geriatric services to area residents. Albuquerque is considered the medical hub of the state, and it’s no wonder, because its healthcare is some of the best in the West. The city boasts the VA Medical Center, Presbyterian Hospital, Heart Hospital of New Mexico, and Lovelace Women’s Hospital. University of New Mexico Hospital is a level I trauma center, and there are numerous additional specialists who can assist with specific and complex health needs. This is especially true for those requiring gerontology services, as the University of New Mexico Hospital offers a wide array of health classes, medical services, and physicians specializing in the care of the elderly. Additionally, several hospitals in the area offer support groups for both seniors and their caregivers.

Senior-Friendly Transportation in Albuquerque

Several regional area transit services make it possible for residents of Albuquerque retirement communities and area locals and visitors to get from point A to point B. The Rio Metro offers fully accessible trains and buses that meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), including wheelchair lifts and related interior accessibility equipment. The City of Albuquerque Transportation Division also provides 15-passenger vans, wheelchair-accessible vans, and minivans to provide transportation to senior centers and satellite centers, as well as doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and grocery stores.

Retirement communities in Albuquerque are the perfect choice for seniors looking for unbeatable weather, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, endless activities, and educational experiences.
