Memory Care, Albuquerque, NM

Palmilla Senior Living offers the proprietary The Path to the Present® – A Resident Directed Program. It recognizes your loved one’s abilities and preferences and supports him or her in doing as much self-care as possible. So whether he or she has Alzheimer’s disease or another type of memory loss, your loved one can maintain his or her independence. 

Resident-Directed Care

Rather than asking your loved one to conform to our environment, we’ve created an environment that conforms to people with dementia. This helps your loved one reach his or her greatest potential—mentally, physically and spiritually.

This unique approach:

  • Engages your loved one in meaningful daily activities
  • Helps him or her regain a sense of purpose
  • Reconnects him or her with the larger world
