I visited this facility
I visited El Castillo and liked it a good deal, but there weren't any vacancies. The rooms were a bit dated but still very comfortable. There were lots of amenities, and it was very close to downtown. The person who showed me around was very courteous but didn’t show me around simply because there were no vacancies, so there was very little point. I didn’t see the facility well enough. The price was reasonable; however, there were no vacancies so there was no point pursuing it.

To me El Castillo LifeCare Community felt like home. It’s a smaller community, and everybody was very friendly. The apartment that I have has one bedroom, and it's very nice. It's very carefully setup with a living room, a bedroom, and a small dining area as well as a full kitchen. They have one meal a day. It was very good. It was a buffet, but you can also choose off the menu if you want. They also have a bistro, and you are given a food credit which would cover one meal a day, but you can use it however you want to.

My mother spent the last year of her life at El Castillo,which is a multi level facility in downtown Santa Fe. There are independent living units for purchase that give the owner the benefit of transitioning into either assisted living or full nursing care as needed. It is one of only three licensed nursing facilities in town and by far the best. this was essential my mother's case as her long term care insurance required a licensed facility. The important thing to know is that one does not need to buy a living unit to enter either assisted living or full nursing care. My mother was in a 200 plus bed nursing home outside of Detroit run by a huge hospital corp. It was adequate but the resident staff ratio was probably 1 to 8 or 10. El Castillo is more like 1 to 5 or 6. There are always two RNs on duty during the day and one at nite and the balance of the staff is highly trained and, unlike many homes I've visited, happy with their work.
