Assisted Living Reviews for Albuquerque Grand Senior Living

Thank you for taking such good care of Marg. She loves her new apartment. I had tea with her a few days ago and was quite envious with the view she had. I think I could consider a life like this in my future.

I liked Albuquerque Grand Senior Living because it was in the city. It was a big building, but everything was locked and closed. The place was more for people who just wanted a nice, comfortable place to stay. The staff was very nice, but I wanted more activities. The food was very good, and the dining area was very nice. It wasn’t so open or lively to me.

Albuquerque Grand was very rundown and very unprofessional feeling. For example, my wheelchairs wouldn’t go through the doors in the apartment. The staff was friendly, and she knew her facility. The dining area was just OK, nothing special. It just seemed very low on the totem pole as far as appearance, attitude, and upkeep. It was not a very nice place. I wouldn’t consider living there. They need to redo their building. They’ve got these doors that wheelchairs won’t go through, really narrow hallways, and a ramp that you have to go up and down in your wheelchair, which is almost impossible.

I took a tour at The Albuquerque Grand Senior Living for my mom. It was OK. I really like the person who operated the place -- she was fantastic -- but my mom said she did not felt it to be a home. It felt like a building. We really did not see activities on the place.

I chose Albuquerque Grand mainly for the price and activities; you name it, they have it. They do a good job of activities for the residents. We had a marvelous Thanksgiving dinner. A lot of groups come in for singing and dancing. However, the food is not good.

I had a friend that was at The Albuquerque Grand Senior Living. I had a bad feeling about it. It wasn’t very clean, and I didn’t feel comfortable. It was a big place, but I didn’t think the staff wasn't friendly.

I am a friend or relative of resident

The staff seems very pleasent to outside guests. We moved my grandpa in with the assumption they are pleasent and nice we paid for everything including cleaning of his room every week, laundry, help with bathing, and medicine. After about a month we noticed his pain pills dissapearing. He wasnt taking them but yet several each week were gone. They stopped helping him bathe and we noticed his overall heigene was getting worse. He would tell us stories of how most residents suffered from dementia or Alzheimers. If you had any mental capacity they treated you very poorly. If you tried explaing a problem or wanted to ask a question about meals they were rude and acted like your opinion didnt matter. We moved him out as soon as possible. We gave a $2,000 deposit and might see half of that back. When we turned the keys in they said they woukd do an inspection and get back to us. A week later I called and Tony was very rude right off the bat almost yelling at me about the condition of his room. I told him I cleaned it and took pictures and he told me "good im glad you did because so did we." They claim they charge a cleaning fee a sanitation fee and carpet cleaning. Im confused I thought someone was cleaning his room every week? Save your elderly the misery and go somewhere else. I would give a no star rating but I have to give 1 to leave comments.

The Albuquerque Grand was the one that I visited. The person there, Savana, has been very helpful, and she was willing to work with me, but it would still leave me like $600 a month, and I was not used to living that limited. It used to be a football dorm, so it was very large. The rooms used to be dorms, so they were not appealing to me. They had activities. I believed they had a pool table, a community room, and games. The halls were suffocating, hot, and miserable. I guessed that was to be expected with elderly people because they were cold, but I didn't like that. However, Savana was really helpful and friendly.

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.

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
