About River Bend Retirement Community

River Bend is an Independent Retirement Community for 60+ residents that are still active and want to maintain their independence. Located along the Pecos River in Carlsbad, New Mexico, River Bend is one of the few Independent Living facilities that have met the stringent criteria to be certified as a Retirement Resort because “it offers the finest active retirement living in a resort community”

Residents have priority access, if needed, to home health care 24/7, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing at Lakeview Christian Home, part of the tiered living approach of a Continuing Care Retirement Community. River Bend covers 20 acres and is conveniently located less than two miles from the shopping mall and the heart of downtown Carlsbad with great access to all of Carlsbad’s hot spots. “You can’t beat this location” is a most common phrase heard by visitors. Within 60 minutes of major airports, Carlsbad is a step-removed from the big city hustle and bustle where one can enjoy a much slower paced life-style.
v River Bend consists of beautifully appointed single-family homes ranging from 1,600 sq ft to 2,100 sq ft and Patio Homes with 1,250 sq ft. All offer spacious 2-car garages. The community provides lovely landscaping featuring meandering streams, waterfalls and garden paths where hummingbirds and butterflies gather. Our residents are ready to kick up their heels and enjoy life, while management fully maintains the home and landscaping, leaving plenty of time to swim in the heated indoor pool or stroll along the Pecos River a block away. Golfers love the Municipal Golf Course located next door along the river with exceptionally low green fees. Many of the residents enjoy driving their golf carts right up to the course and are able to play year-round with the mild Southeastern New Mexico climate. Or hiking in the nearby Guadalupe Mountains and fishing and boating on the river. There’s plenty to do in Carlsbad!

A perfect climate to live in and wonderful year round activities, Carlsbad is a progressive community – a perfect retirement location. It boasts a newly acquired designation by AARP as one of only 250 “Age-friendly” communities in the US and the only “Age-friendly” community in New Mexico. Money Magazine named Carlsbad to its “Top 20 Retirement Towns in North America”. The international magazine Where to Retire featured Carlsbad as one of “the top ten tax-friendly towns in America”.

Part of the pleasure of the land of enchantment is feeling at home here. Discover the perfect blend of warm days, cool nights, low humidity, abundant sunshine and a Christian retirement village in River Bend Retirement Community.
