We looked at The Montebello on Academy, and that's the place we're trying to get into. It's a very classy place and the pieces of furniture were nice and classy. They had a great chef...

The Montebello on Academy

Review by Harry


My experience with The Montebello on Academy has been good, although it took a while to get used to living here. The people here are fairly more dressed up, probably because they have an older clientele here than most other places...

Brookdale Tramway Ridge

Review by Visitor


Brookdale Tramway Ridge (formerly Brookdale Place of Albuquerque) was clean, and everything was nice about it. It was just too far for us. The staff was very helpful.

Atria Vista Del Rio

Review by Loving children who regret choosing Vista del Rio


Our parent's experience has been awful. We have visited and stayed overnight many times, often for days in a row, so have observed first-hand all aspects over a long period of time. Mistakes have been made repeatedly with medications--at least 15 times in two years. Slightly different drugs and dad would've died...

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Albuquerque

Located along historic Route 66, the Southwestern city of Albuquerque holds a unique place in history as one of the oldest cities in the United States. Spread across the Rio Grande River, New Mexico’s largest city is clearly influenced by the Native American, Hispanic and Latino cultures that have passed on their customs for centuries. Set against the Sandia Mountains with over 310 days of sunshine per year, assisted living in Albuquerque provides seniors with an exceptional retirement experience.

Albuquerque Attractions

Albuquerque’s signature blue skies and mild weather make it the perfect place to fly a hot air balloon. In fact, Albuquerque is the “Ballooning Capital of the World,” home to over 300 balloonists, the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum and the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®. Seniors enjoying assisted living in Albuquerque are no stranger to seeing bright colored balloons drifting by their windows each day. Seniors have an endless array of things to do from exploring the National Hispanic Cultural Center and taking in a performance of the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra to learning some new moves at the National Institute of Flamenco and browsing the treasure-filled arts markets in nearby Santa Fe and Taos.

Albuquerque Senior Activities

Residents of Albuquerque’s vibrant 50+ senior communities often gather at one of seven Senior Centers in the city to enjoy computer and pottery classes, organized excursions to exciting destinations and events, and opportunities for fitness and outdoor recreation. Memberships can be obtained at the centers for a small annual fee, allowing Albuquerque seniors access to on-site fitness facilities, free internet service, notary services and more. Transportation from communities that offer assisted living in Albuquerque to a nearby Senior Center is provided by the city.

Albuquerque Medical Facilities

Seniors should settle for nothing less than a happy and healthy retirement, which is why residents of assisted living in Albuquerque are fortunate to live near the University of Mexico (UNM) Hospital. One of the top-performing hospitals in the country, UNM Hospital is located on the University of New Mexico campus and acts as the teaching hospital for the School of Medicine. The hospital operates the state’s only Level I Trauma center, a Cancer Center and serves over 450,000 patients annually.

Albuquerque Transportation

Public transit in Albuquerque is run by ABQ RIDE, which operates a comprehensive system of buses to get seniors from communities of assisted living in Albuquerque to wherever they need to go. Trips on the D-RIDE route, which loops around Downtown Albuquerque’s most popular destinations, are free and arrive every seven minutes during the day. Seniors with disabilities that prevent them from using regular bus services are able to utilize Albuquerque’s SunVan Paratransit program, which provides door-to-door service anywhere in Bernalillo County. Assisted living in Albuquerque offers seniors a place in the heart of a thriving metropolis set against the breathtaking scenery of the American Southwest.
