New Mexico Assisted Living Directory

About the facility:

New Mexico is one of the southern-most states in the US and well known for it’s dry, desert climate. While some stories and movies make deserts look harsh, a dry climate can often have a lot of benefits, especially for those advancing in age and beginning to feel a great deal of sensitivities and other ailments. Moist, humid climates are more prone to mold which can be a huge irritant to allergies and respiratory systems, but the dry heat of the New Mexico desert will prevent any such mold from bringing extra discomfort.


Besides the health benefits, there are many cultural aspects about New Mexico that make it an appealing place to find a new living arrangement. Besides the festivals celebrating New Mexico’s fascinating history and heritage, there are also events for hot air balloons, bird migrations, and vineyards with wine tastings.

Besides the prices of facilities found in New Mexico , it’s also very important to research the facilities you’re interested in, making sure they are properly licensed and have no complaints filed against them. One way to make sure that your loved one is going to the very best facility, is to know the health care and assisted living regulations of the state you are looking for a facility in. If you know the standards that each facility is held up to, then you’ll be quickly aware of whether or not a facility is holding to those regulations when you go visit the facility for a tour.


Once you’ve become knowledgeable on the state’s requirements, then it’s just a matter of deciding on the area your loved one would like to live, and finding a facility that has all the services and accommodations they desire. A good rule of thumb is to research facilities online first, make a list of your top 5 and then visit those in person. Maybe even interview some of the residents- or family of the residents- while you are checking the place out.
