I visited this facility

The persons working at Life Spire didn't know anything about us coming, and they were in the dining room talking to each other while the people were in the living room doing nothing. I definitely wouldn't take my parents there. The bedroom we saw was very dark and gloomy, and I wasn't impressed at all.

I visited Life Spire about a month ago, and it’s a dementia facility. The staff seems very caring, and I was happy to see that they were redirecting the residents instead of correcting them if they were confused. It was very clean, everybody seemed to be engaged in activity, and it seems like a good situation. The environment and the rooms were very nice. It’s the main place that we were considering, and one of the main thing was the person who gave me the tour was really very kind. It was a good experience.

Life Spire Assisted Living was a very nice facility, modern, and very up-to-date facility. I believed the rooms had private or shared bathrooms and you only had two residents for one shared bathroom, plus private rooms with private baths. They had a nice open area in front and a dining area. The rooms there were exclusively studios and did not have any kitchen. They had laundry services and a community living room set up when you walked in the building with a huge TV and a sofa. The facility was very nice. They could improve by lowering the prices. It was homey and smaller than a lot of bigger facilities in town.

I didn't like Life Spire. When I had talked to the staff member on the phone, I had gotten the impression that they had more high-functioning patients or tenants, but they actually had more dementia patients, so that wasn't good. The facility was very clean and modern, but it smelled as I walked in. Somebody obviously needed assistance and wasn't getting it. They had rock music playing. It was just crazy. It was not a good choice.

My daughter thought Life Spire Assisted Living Rio Rancho was a good place for her dad, but they had dark-colored paint that was a little depressing. Even though the staff was very appropriate and positive, we probably would not use it. I saw a lot of the residents were asleep and unattentive, and I felt really uncomfortable watching them.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting our facilty, we are pleased that your experience was positive other then color preference. We are committed to providing care to customers during all phases of the disease process. We strive to prevent our customers from having to transition to a higher level of care in a alternate setting. Unfortunately an increase in sleep and shorter attention span is common in our aging residents whose have been with us for several years or whose disease has progressed. We make every attempt to engage our residents in meaningful and active community integration activities. Thank you again for visiting us..

Life Spire Assisted Living - Rio Rancho was actually very nice. I met with one of the owners who was excellent. The whole place was clean, and the rooms were of a good size. The staff was very professional and friendly.

Life Spire was wonderful. That’s where I was going to move my mom, but she passed away. It was wonderful. They had their own room. Some of them shared a bathroom, which was completely wheelchair accessible. They had a ratio of 1:7 staff to patients, and it was cheaper. It was really good. Life Spire was the best that I saw. Their dining area was really cute and their kitchen was open 24 hours a day. They don’t need to improve on anything. In fact, right now they are full. The price was excellent.

Life Spire was new and very clean, but there was some miscommunication with the appointment. We got there, and there wasn't anyone there to show us around. We had to wait until someone got there, and they said they were completely unaware of the appointment. It's a little bit farther from the house where my mother is now. The lady who was the activities director started showing us around before the main person got there. Everything looked very nice, very spacious, bright, and open. The big drawback for us as far as taking care of my mother was that they did not have a nurse at all times, just an on-call nurse. My mother is diabetic and takes insulin twice a day. That's a negative based on my mother's needs, not a negative toward their facility. The activities director was doing an activity about Thanksgiving in the large living area. The people were moving around quite freely. They had the whole place locked down, sp it was very secure. The people can lock the doors to their rooms, so people can't wander in and out. The caregivers and the staff can go in and out, but if they don't want to have someone wandering in their room, they have that option.

When I first walked in at Life Spire Assisted Living, the woman told me I don’t have an appointment. I was not welcomed at all, unlike the others I visited, but I liked it. It was homey. It was a small community, so I felt that there would be more one-on-one situations. It is not easy to find this facility, in terms of location.

Provider Response

We apologize for our introduction, we appreciate the opportunity to have tours led by our community liaison or a member of our managment team, just as you said , we would hate to take a caregiver off the floor from providing valuable care with our residents on a 1:1 ratio to give information that would not be precise or comprehensive. Our location is in a comfortable quiet neighborhood enjoyed by our residents which does not have good Main Street signage, per zoning. We will attempt to increase our presence via online maps and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you . Please do not hesitate to call me for personal assistance.

Life Spire is the one that we like the most. My dad is there. They are great. It is closer to residences, so it is more convenient also. The rooms are fine. I like the room my dad is in now. We have been over there many times while they have been eating, and we have not eaten the food, but my dad seems to like the food just fine. They have activities, but my dad can't see too good, so he can't really be involved in much. The Mexican state fair was held there recently, and they had a state fair day there. They had some entertainments, they had some drummers and stuff like that. Also, the staff has been great. They're very good. I like all of them.

We found the place we were looking for when we found LifeSpire. Spacious, airy rooms, lovely dining room and living area beautifully decorated. Excellent options in private areas which are clean and roomy. Staff is friendly and very caring. All staff are cognizant of the individual needs of each person. Extracurricular activities are offered and encouraged.

When I first toured Life Spire and met Carol Lynn and James, I knew this was the right place for my Mom. They are the managers of this locally owned business and during my initial meeting with them I immediately understood they are very caring people. The online pictures do not do it justice - it is a much more beautiful and secure facility. It is new, clean, spacious and the courtyard and the fountain provide a nice outdoor space for relaxing. Carol Lynn and her staff provided excellent care for my mother during her last years of her life. My Mom didn't eat or sleep well and Carol Lynn and her staff made sure she was getting food that she enjoyed whenever she wanted it. My mother also didn't sleep well and it was nice to know there was always someone she could talk to during the night. The night staff treated her so well, making her the snacks at night, providing conversation and companionship. I highly recommend Life Spire Living for anyone looking for a safe, secure, and loving environment. Carol Lynn and James have a vested interest in the success of Life Spire and it shows.

It's been 8 months since my mom passed away in the loving care of this assisted living home. Everyone at Life Spire is compassionate toward the residents and at the same time they are skilled to care for them appropriately. I spent a lot of time visiting my mom and observed how loving the staff was with all of the residents. We were permitted to bring my mom's own furniture in which made her experience much more familiar and homey. The food is delicious and the activities they provide were great. Carol Lynn is exemplary in her knowledge of the insurance system and patient care. I would highly recommend Life Spire to anyone looking for an upscale, loving environment, which provides excellent patient care for their loved one.
