I am/was a resident of this facility

We came here to sing as volunteers. The residents first off enjoyed our singing but most importantly they seamed to be enjoying living at this community. They were all down in the dinning room and extremely grateful for our service. They all thanked us for coming out to provide entertainment to them. I did notice how clean an quaint the building is. I stepped into the office of the sales office and she was happy to take time to give me information for my friend who in fact may be in need of their service. The major indicator to myself that this was a great community was the activeness of the residents currently residing there.

The chef is amazing. I loved the meal last week I eat with dad. Dad had picked this place for my mom and himself a few years ago. My has since passed after her battle with breastfeeding cancer. I lived out of state at the time so I had no say in it. That made me nervous as I was not able to see it befor hand. Now I have been back for almost six months and can see he mad a good choice. They were all so great with my mom's passing and gave my dad the extra attention he needed. I'm glad they were there when I could not be.

They have great staff at this place. My mom lives on the east side in the independent part of the building but lately she has needed help with her medication. When she needed this service, Tony got the staff to start immediately. It was an amazing weight off our shoulders. I have noticed a big positive change in her mental state since this has happened. I am very thankful for all of them. Good Job everyone John Vigil

My aunt has lived in this community for over 5 years now and, while changes have occurred, the quality of staff, the care, and the services provided, as well as the commitment of management, has always been great and, if anything, has continued to improve and impress me. I visit my aunt at least 3 times a week, and am always warmly greeted. The staff knows every resident's name and there is a genuine sense of family and caring interaction. The owners, a husband and wife, are frequent visitors and they know their residents and I've watched them happily spend time talking with them. This is not a fancy corporate feeling place - instead it is clean, bright, uplifting place filled with very nice people. If you asked my Aunt about the place she'd say the same things about it. Like most her age she will complain if things don't meet her expectations, but the worst I've ever heard is that the food is a "little spicy." She likes that they keep the place neat and tidy, and that they clean her apartment as part of her rent. She loves that they also do her laundry because it's too hard for her to do it herself anymore. And she loves the exercise classes. Recently the owner completely refurnished the main patio and we now love sitting outside in the evenings with her friends. Having spend so much time here, I feel like I have a real sense of the place and am very happy to have my family member here. The staff knows their business, seem to take great pride in working with seniors, and it is clear that, for most of them, this work is a real passion. The place seems to always have work going on to keep it looking nice, and that's good - I want my Aunt to live in a place that has the same pride she does. Nice apartments, nice staff, nice place - great decision for my aunt to move here.

Very lousy facility. Management refuses to cooperate on certain issues, including a billing dispute. Management puts on a good show when you show interest and want to move in. Once you give them your money you see how ugly they really are. Steer clear of this place folks, do your research before you move your loved ones, and avoid this place. You'll save yourself a lot of hassle.

old facility, very ugly furnishings, bad food, health department always there with complaints, bed bug infestation. Owners do not know how to run facility. Employees treated real bad causing lots of turnover in management.

Albuquerque Grand was great when my mother went there but it's not that great now. I think it changed owners and some of it is not as good. Every room has a bathroom. Everybody goes down to a general area for meals. The staff are okay. They do laundry and there's a staff there all the time if some people need help.

I visited this facility

The Albuquerque Grand Senior Living Facility is a great one because it has been around for so long. The staff is helpful and they have a genuine passion for the work they do. The facilities are kept clean and room sizes are okay. Compared to other places the meals are decent even though they don't provide a restaurant feel like some there places do. Their rates are competitive and they have nurses and trained professional on site. At Albuquerque Grand Senior Living there is a personable feeling that makes it feel like home. Parking can be a drag because of its proximity to the University of New Mexico and a busy cross street. There are activities and programs abundant for the residents at Albuquerque Grand Senior Living. Seems they have a pretty low turnover rate for employees. Some of the people I met had been working there for years and love what they do. I would recommend this place for one of my love ones.

About Albuquerque Grand Senior Living

There was a time when retirement meant settling into an easy chair and letting other people take care of you. That was then. This is now.

Today’s seniors are sharper, fitter, and more active than ever. They enjoy a robust social life, entertainment and cultural activities. They exercise regularly, eat healthy, take care of their bodies and minds. For today’s seniors, that easy chair might gather a lot of dust … at least at Albuquerque Grand Senior Living. As we believe your retirement years should be the best years of your life.

Retirement should mean freedom. Freedom from the demands of home ownership and maintenance, from the obligation to cook and clean…and worry. Freedom to truly make your retirement years your very best. Maybe you’ll choose Independent Living, where you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds … the privacy and independence of living in your own homey apartment, with all the security and convenience of round-the-clock staffing. If you need a little more assistance, choose the Assisted Living option, and get the extra help you need, so you can experience the quality of life you want.
