Roann understands and knows about elder care. She cares so much that she put together a brochure about what to look for and questions to ask when looking for a place for your aged love ones. She respects her staff and takes care of their needs and yearly training, as well. Ultimately, they want to stay and work for her-some have been with her as long as she's had the two residential homes. A residential home is personal-it's like a home away from home. With care around the clock from loving and attentive staff, with activities to participate in, and good wholesome food, what a blessing it was to have my mom living at A Love for Life! Susan

It's a very hard decision to place a loved one in an assisted living facility. We put my mom in A Love for Life and my mom is Thriving! She is talking, smiling, laughing, singing, dancing & joking again. They take such great care of her and she's so happy. The facility is very clean, the food is delicious, the staff is very loving and caring. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for my mom. Thanks to Roann and the staff for loving my mom and all the residents they have.

My dad spent his last two years at A Love for Life. I cannot think of a better team and a better environment. Roann and her staff are committed to delivering high quality, personalized and positive care. They are sensitive to the entire family and, in fact, they became our extended family during our time together. Roann's combined skills as an RN and a business leader result in a uniquely well-run home. I recommend A Love for Life highly.

The hardest decision our family has ever had to make. Our mother who is 90 needed more care then we could provide.After months of searching, there was an opening at love for life. We jumped on it. From day one we knew it was the right place for our mom.The staff is knowledgeable, Kind and caring. The facility clean and modern. Keeping their residence Safe is the main concern.With the help of Roann and her staff, we were able to overcome six months of challenging health issues mom was having.Now, you will find our mom singing old songs with the weekly music guy with a big smile on her face.This is her home now and we couldn't be happier!Thank you Roann and your incredible staff. We are so lucky we found you!

A love for life is truly the best assisted living facility in Albuquerque. Making the decision that your loved one needs to find a new place to live for their safety and well-being can be a daunting and scary task. There are many decisions that need to be made, and all you want is to find a place that will love and care for your family as you would do. A Love for Life is exactly the place were you can feel confident to call home for your loved one. The care is exceptional and the love that is given to all the residents here is quite remarkable. The owner of the facility has made sure to build a home away from home, insuring the utmost dignity and respect for each resident. The place is meticulously clean and beautifully designed. The care givers here are a team of exceptional people who have the highest integrity and compassion for all residents. You truly feel as though you are family from the moment you walk in the door. As someone who has family here, I cannot sing higher praises for this place.

My therapy dogs can’t wait to get in the door every time we arrive and they enjoy every minute of their time there. Dogs pick up on people’s emotions very quickly and I can confidently say their tails have wagged non-stop every single visit. There is definitely joy in the air at the Bear Canyon home. It’s a place I would definitely put my name down for if the time ever comes. Highly recommended.

I've been paying the IRS for 40+ years. I have never (I mean this) loved a job for more than three months. Well I'm here at A Love for Life for over a year and a half and actually love it more than when I started.The care, the team work, the genuine caring and management means everything good and then some for our wonderful residents.I'm proud to be here and intend to retire one day (years) from here.
