My father was a resident at Life Spire on Wyoming and Oakland from the time they first opened in 8/2016, until he passed away. We chose Life Spire because of it’s smaller size, hoping the care would be more personal. We were not disappointed, as the care he received at Life Spire was outstanding. The staff responded quickly to all alarms, and often just stopped by his room to say “hello,” and check on him. As a physician, I was impressed with how responsible the staff was with administering medications. The view of the Sandia Mountains from the dining area and many of the rooms is beautiful. The food is excellent, and family members are welcomed at the table. During my father’s last days, the staff did all they could to care for not just him, but all of us too. I can’t speak highly enough of the Life Spire staff at the northeast location. By the time my father passed away, we considered so many of the staff to be friends. We will forever be grateful for the care they gave my father at Life Spire.

I visited this facility
We checked this one story facility, residential setting facilities and a multi-story apartment facility. Life Spire met our needs with its hands-on care, sparkling new and fully modern assisted care facility. My mom will get the attention she will require as Alzheimer's claims more of her memory. Carol Lynn who manages and owns the property with her husband is a knowledgeable and caring individual and I have no hesitation moving my mother here.

Life Spire on High Assets was nice, but I didn’t like it as much as others. They had a ratio of 1:7 nurse to patients. I didn’t like the layout, but the views from the apartment windows were beautiful because you got the view of Sandia Mountain. It was gorgeous. The location was really close to my house. The staff was wonderful, very easy to get along with, and very knowledgeable. Everybody was well trained and responded when they heard an alarm. It was very nice. I think they just need more outdoor space. Security was awesome.

Life Spire has a very nice setting and a homey feel to it. The entrance was very clean. The personnel were friendly and helpful. The rooms were a nice size and clean. It was decorated very nicely. The dining room looked pretty spacious. Their food was home-cooked, and they have a nutritionist that plans the meals for the residents.

My father lived at Lifespire West Side for 18 months. We felt the small number of residents (about 12) was perfect for his needs. Due to his dementia, he often presented special needs. The staff got to know him very well and always tried to accommodate those needs. We always felt welcome as family members to visit any time. They respected his dignity and cared for him until the day he passed away. We are thankful for the dedication of the owners at LifeSpire and thankful he got to stay "at home" until the day he passed. I would recommend LifeSpire to any family looking for a smaller, caring home like environment.

We chose Life Spire because of its location. The food and staff are great. It has been nice seeing the same people since my relative has been there. There's not a constant turnaround in staff. I haven't seen them do a lot of activities, though, but overall we're happy.

We have already placed my mother at Life Aspire. We chose this community because it wasn't as large as some of the other ones I went to and it wasn't a residential facility. It was of medium size and they take up to 20 residents. I just felt that my mother was going to get a little bit more specialized care there. My overall experience with the staff has been very positive so far. They make you feel very comfortable and they take care of whatever you need. The rooms are very nice. We have seen quite a few and they are very personalized. They allow you to go in and do whatever you want to make the residents feel at home and comfortable. Every morning, they take them out and they do little exercises outside. They have different little art projects once every week. They also put all the women in the dining room once every two weeks and they give them little manicures to make them feel really special. Their food is very good and very nutritious. I tried to go at different times for different meals and everybody is just enjoying their meals. As a whole, I just like the overall feeling of this place -- they make you feel right at home. They make you feel that this is your parent's home and you are allowed to go at any time without restrictions.
