Mr. R U Kidding at Avamere at Rio Rancho

Nestled in the third-largest city in New Mexico amongst scenic desert landscapes and the Sandia Mountains is Avamere at Rio Rancho.

This senior living community welcomes those seeking independent living, assisted living, memory care, and respite care.

Here residents get to experience the Land of Enchantment first-hand.

Embracing the New Mexico culture

New Mexico offers a diverse cultural heritage with influences from Native American, Spanish, and Mexican cultures. The beautiful cultural events, art exhibitions, New Mexican food, vineyards and wine festivals, and the world-famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta creates an enchanted world and views you don’t want to miss.

“We are the Land of Enchantment, after all,” said Gabriel Nunez, Community Relations Director at Avamere at Rio Rancho.

Having fun at Avamere

Residents enjoy friends and good laughs every Friday during their ice cream social and karaoke. But their good times aren’t limited to the weekend!

Residents gather around for Happy Hour each Tuesday evening, complete with live entertainment.

They also enjoy going out on the town! Some of their excursions include trips to the casino, visiting the Museum of Natural History, and taking a scenic drive to the beautiful Sandia Mountains.

Aside from the many activities and outings thoughtfully planned by staff, many residents love to mingle during the day. One of the residents, Mr. R U Kidding, is often found making jokes and bringing a smile to everyone’s face.

“You can’t walk by him without having him telling you some kind of story or what he’s experienced,” said Kristin Colozza, Life Enrichment Director at Avamere at Rio Rancho. “We are all delighted to have him here in the community with us!”

Residents and staff at Avamere at Rio Rancho create their own Land of Enchantment. Stop by to see for yourself!
