Located in the beautiful high desert, Albuquerque is a great destination for those who love Native American and Spanish history, and is full of museums, adobe architecture and a myriad of natural attractions, such as the nearby state parks and trails. To help seniors in Albuquerque find the assisted living community that’s right for their family, we’ve researched and compiled in-depth information about the cost of care, how to pay for care, and important local laws and regulations involving senior care and assisted living.

With an average cost of $3,807 in Albuquerque, it’s often difficult to find assisted living communities that provide high-quality care at an affordable price. At Caring.com, our mission is to make this process as smooth and painless as possible, and we’ve helped many families along the way.
