Original Care provides comfortable, warm and safe homes specializing in dementia and Alzheimer’s care for elderly residents. We offer low staff-to-resident ratio and staff members are fully trained as caregivers as well as receive additional specialized dementia and Alzheimer’s training annually as required by the state of New Mexico. The Administrator is on-site and very involved with direct assisted living resident care as well as staff supervision. We are able to provide 24-hour assistance with bathing, grooming, dressing as well as assist residents at mealtimes and with incontinence care. We provide daily housekeeping and on-site laundry.
The Comforts of Home
All of our homes offer home-style living in a clean, comfortable environment that allows our senior residents to live with dignity. We feature relaxing living rooms with recliners and open kitchens that are fully accessible to our residents, as well as landscaped back yards and patios that are enjoyed by all residents and visitors.
Food for Thought
Original Care takes pride in providing the right nutritional diet through weekly menus that are reviewed and approved by a Licensed Dietitian. Food is bought locally each week and cooked in the home’s kitchen. Fresh fruit and snacks are always available. We are able to accommodate all our residents’ dietary needs and preferences and work closely with family and physicians to ensure all residents get the nutrition they need for optimal health.
A Full & Active Lifestyle
We are committed to maintaining the strengths and abilities of our residents by creating activities based on their needs and interests. Some of the activities residents may participate in include music and singing, pet therapy, hair styling, manicures and pedicures, reading, walking clubs, gardening and baking. Exercise is encouraged if recommended by the residents’ personal physicians and we celebrate birthdays and holidays. Family and friends are always welcomed and quite often come to visit and to share meals and celebrations with their loved ones.
