I visited this facility

There were a lot of people at Rio Norte when we went there. There was an event happening, so it was kind of crowded. As far as the assisted living, it was fine. We saw a one-bedroom apartment that seemed fine. There was a party that day, so everybody was eating and having a good time. There was a girl there named was Victoria who was very helpful and very nice. She was the one that set up the invitation for us to visit. Actually, there have been a couple of times that we had contact with her. She was always very kind.

We visited Rio Norte. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were minimal, but Mom was very happy with them. She said that's probably where she will go to if she decides to. They had good activities too. I attended one, so I could take some videos to show my Mom what it is like. Everything that Mom would need, I would say she has there available to her. It was well-managed and well-maintained. A lot of the residents were very friendly too.

They had great food, and they had what we needed. Rio Norte was a fantastic place. They had younger people there. My mom is 92 years old, but we tried to get her to come down from Michigan. The staff was great and very helpful. They had everything. Cars could be parked there. I was even looking at it for myself. They had Blackjack, pool tables, internet access, and a religious facility. They had several apartments. It didn't smell like urine like all the other places did. It was a lot cheaper than what we're paying in Michigan -- which is $4200 a month -- and there in El Paso, it was $2500, which included care. There were younger people there, they drive their cars, and it's just a few miles from my house.

I was very pleased with Rio Norte. We had a lot of choices, and the prices were reasonable. It is very clean. You enter, and everything is like new. They have 2-bedroom and 1-bedroom apartments, and they a studio apartment type. The room that I saw was one that they use as a model, and they have furniture. The food was very good. Everything that they serve was very well prepared. I have met 2 or 3 ladies that live there; they are all very pleased with the facility. Very nice, friendly people. The staff was wonderful; they called me back and invited me to some of their events. They have a comedy night and a movie night; they had different things. It is a good facility. I will recommend it to anybody especially because it’s the only one on this side of town. It doesn’t have a swimming pool if the people want to do water exercises, but it has a small area where they have 2 or 3 exercise machines.

We spent one afternoon at Rio Norte. The staff did a good job in accommodating us, and that was really nice. They were really first class in everything that they do. The rooms are spacious. This facility is more livable. All the things around it are easier to get to.

Rio Norte was an expensive community. It was beautiful, but I couldn't afford it. I saw one area during my visit, which was hteir activity room. Everybody was busy doing something. I would love to be there if I could afford it.
