[Video] Facility Inspections & Complaints - Albuquerque
Video Produced by Assisted Living Directory
You can quickly and easily look up this essential information for over 100 assisted living facilities  in Albuquerque!

The facilities listed here may be contacted directly, and safely. We also include numerous facility video tours on this page!

We'd like to start by highlighting how you can learn about facility inspections, surveys, complaints and violations in Albuquerque. We feel that this is such important information for any serious senior care search that it deserves time and effort to explain where to find it, as well as how to search for facilities using trusted sources.

With that in mind, our video tutorial will quickly show you, using the New Mexico Department of Health website,  how to look up facility surveys and complaints for 107 assisted living facilities (at this time) in Albuquerque. It can be confusing, and not so intuitive, though, since most people would start by looking at the Department of Aging website, which, for New Mexico, does not have this information.

Tip: Be wary of other senior sites that do this

Assisted Living Directory takes great pride in providing trustworthy, highly useful and straightforward information, and we hope that for our Albuquerque section here, we have achieved that goal. Intro by

***Great Tip: Did you know that almost always, you can find a photo of an assisted living facility even if they don't have a website, or 'online presence?' By choosing the 'map' for each facility listed below, you'll be taken to an interactive map where the facility is located, and most often, you'll see a 'street view' photo of the facility. You will even be able to use the map to take a 'virtual tour' down the street where the facility is located! It's a wonderful way to get an idea of what a facility looks like, and what the surrounding neighborhood and area is like!

Additionally, the City of Albuquerque offers a Department of Seniors affairs that covers the city, as well as Bernalillo County. This office offers assistance to seniors (actually, young seniors 50 and older) as well as a wide range of services and opportunities to promote healthy aging, participate in stimulating classes designed for seniors, or attend a special event. There is an activities catalog provide by the department that details the programs and services available. There is a small annual cost for membership, and allows seniors to use the half-dozen senior centers around the city.

Aside from our information here, there are a number of other trustworthy ways to find facilities in Albuquerque. For starters, we recommend checking out the NM Dept. of Health's Provider Search Tool which offers comprehensive information on assisted living facilities throughout Albuquerque. You'll learn facility size (an important consideration) and learn about those valuable citations and inspections, as detailed in our video. Additionally, we recommend looking at the New Mexico Social Services Resource Directory site, which also has an assisted living search tool, and will display Alzheimer's and memory care communities as well!

Assised Living Tidbits:

Did you know that in 2007, Albuquerque was listed as the sixth fastest growing city in the U.S. by the US Census Bureau?
There are many possible reasons for this - Albuquerque's climate is almost always sunny and dry, with low relative humidity. Bright, warm sunshine defines the area, with Albuquerque averaging more than 300 sunny days a year. Albuquerque also has a growing economy - The city lies at the center of the New Mexico Technology Corridor, where there is a concentration of high-tech companies, as well as government institutions. In addition, the geography and natural surroundings of Albuquerque are simply beautiful - with Sandia peak overlooking Albuquerque and the surrounding Rio Grande Valley. For these reasons, and many more, seniors are increasingly finding Albuquerque an ideal place to retire!

Interesting comments and questions that we have received about assisted living in Albuquerque, and senior care:

Q I am currently researching assisted living communities for my father. I am looking for information as far as the care of these facilities and I am looking into getting VA benefits to help cover the cost so I would need a community that accepts VA Benefits/Medicare/etc.

A great way to get answers to this question is to have a qualified advisor to help you. A CSA certified advisor can help you to sort through the many facilities in Albuquerque and zero-in on the ones that fit your criteria and budget! - ALD

Q: I am looking for some place my father can live in Albuquerque. He has dementia and is 74 years old. He has only medicare and does not qualify for medicaid. He has $1,700 a month social security, and that's all. I am going to go through his paperwork in two weeks when I come visit and pray he has some kind of policy to help out, but I doubt he does. Are there any places in that price range? I teach during the day, so can rarely speak on the phone. I can be reached easily by the email address, or can speak on the phone in the evenings. - Barbara

Comment: Betzi: You helped me year's ago with the placement of my mother-in-law. I have a 94 yr. old friend who is starting to think about assisted living and wanting to see what her insurance will pay ($117/day) and what facilities will take her insurance.

Comment: I am looking for a facility that will care for mother with a brain injury: 73 y/o, transfer between wheelchair and bed, responds to questions either yes/no or 4-5 words, dialysis, skin care important. Wants to continue dialysis. Please email. I can then call if facilities are available. She has Medicare / Medicaid.

Q: I am looking for a medicare/medicaid facility for my dad who we are moving here from out of state. He requires 24 hour help, as he is right side paralyzed and has not speech (currently). He suffered a stroke recently. We'd like to find a small facility on the West side of ABQ. I prefer email communication, but can call back if you give me good times to reach you. We are using several search routes. Thank you. - Connie

Q: This is for my mother in law, currently in a nursing home in Belen. A small facility, that accepts Medicaid for at least part of the cost is preferred. - Shondra
