Whether you currently live in the Santa Fe region or are looking to move to New Mexico and are interested in senior living or independent living, there are many options for assisted living in the Santa Fe area. As the oldest state capital in the United States, Santa Fe dates back hundreds of years. It is also known as “The City Different." We know that different factors may be part of your decision as to what’s most important in choosing where to live.
Santa Fe has a number of large complexes for assisted living as well as smaller, more intimate facilities. If you’re looking for the best assisted living, one important question is: Do you want a large group complex housing hundreds of people. Or do you prefer a smaller home with 12-15 residents? In recent years, new assisted living and memory care facilities have been built in Santa Fe; they’re beautiful, and that luxury and expense usually comes with a higher monthly fee. At BeeHive Homes Assisted Living, our homes typically house no more than 15 residents so it’s easier to get to know the other residents and caregivers.
For some, the location of the assisted living facility may be an important factor, particularly if you have family or friends in Santa Fe. If having close access to your elderly spouse or parent is top of the list so that you can visit regularly, the location of the retirement center or assisted living home in Santa Fe could be a key point.
Since 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has created more awareness for health precautions among the elderly. The health and well-being of our BeeHive residents and staff are our top priority. We follow recommendations from the CDC as well as health orders from the State of New Mexico. And we thoroughly clean and disinfect the home to reduce the likelihood of Covid-19, the flu, or other communicable illnesses.
Our Santa Fe assisted living home has just 15 residents, so exposure is much more limited exposure than in a large facility which may house hundreds of residents and a much larger staff. Our smaller assisted care homes mean we care for your family member as if they were our own, in a calmer and more intimate setting.
If you’ve thought that a large assisted living center can offer more than a small home like BeeHive Homes, prepare to change your mind! Each BeeHive Assisted Living Home is like a family home. Our home’s environment is probably more similar to the resident’s own home than the apartments you’ll find in a corporate facility. We offer home-cooked meals designed around what our home’s residents like to eat, laundry services, and a comfortable living room for gathering, putting together a jigsaw puzzle, or watching TV. Our home has cable TV access, private telephone jacks in resident rooms, and an emergency call system. At BeeHive homes for seniors, our trained staff help with bathing, administration of medications, and simple exercises. We provide companionship, as well as memory care and Alzheimer’s/dementia care if needed.
