New Mexico Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

For retirees set on living in the Southwest, the state of New Mexico can be far less expensive than other popular areas such as Arizona. Lower tax rates and cost of living, combined with beautiful natural scenery and mild climate, make New Mexico a wonderful place to call home.
Known as "The Land of Enchantment", New Mexico is filled with jagged snowy mountains and dense forests in the north. There are wide spaces of pink-and-orange deserts as well as white 'mesas' (table-top-shaped cliffs made from the mineral gypsum), where many enjoy hiking, skiing and great vistas.
New Mexico has much to offer retirees including unique cuisine, art, and architecture compliments of the state's demographics, which are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and U.S. American Indian cultural influences.
