    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Albuquerque

    Sitting at an elevation of over 5,000 feet, Albuquerque is the largest city in New Mexico and is home to more than 550,000 residents, 14 percent of whom are 65 or older. Residents in that age group who need or desire assisted living care may choose among 42 facilities in the city.

    As is the case in all of New Mexico, assisted living facilities in Albuquerque are regulated by the Department of Health, Division of Health Improvement, Health Facility Licensing and Certification Bureau.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Albuquerque

    • The cost of living in Albuquerque is 2 percent lower than the national average, and many goods and services that are staple purchases for seniors cost even less. Healthcare and groceries both are more than 10 percent cheaper in Albuquerque than in a typical U.S. city.
    • Albuquerque is a highly car-dependent city, which can be difficult for seniors who are no longer able to drive. ABQ RIDE provides bus routes throughout the city, but these are somewhat limited. Although van transportation is available to seniors, it requires a reservation, and people taking nonessential trips may be put on a waiting list during peak times.
    • Albuquerque's violent crime rate is 51 out of 100 (100 is worst). This is more than double the national average of 22.7. Safety-conscious seniors may want to take precautions, but it should be noted that assisted living facilities are usually safe and secure.
    • Seniors in Albuquerque must pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits and on other retirement income, but those who earn below a certain level may qualify for tax deductions.
    • The Albuquerque area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Presbyterian Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Albuquerque is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.

    • Is Albuquerque a good place to live?

      Whether or not Albuquerque is a “good” place to live will depend on your personal preferences. It is a bustling city that almost one million people call home, and boasts comfortable year-round temperatures, with an average high of 68.7 degrees Fahrenheit and a low of just 45.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • Is Albuquerque a good place to retire?

      Determining if Albuquerque is a good place to retire will, once again, depend on your personal preferences.

      Assisted living is for people who need help with one more of the activities of daily living.

      Type B assisted living is another way of saying memory care, or dementia care. Those with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias may find themselves frequently confused and prone to wandering, so these facilities must provide an environment designed to ensure their safety and peace of mind. These facilities are secured and have a staff of nurses as well as security guards around the clock, as well as programming and meals designed to improve the quality of life specifically for those with dementia.
