What Casa de Paz Offers:
RIO RANCHO SENIOR ASSISTED LIVING
We have two homes in Rio Rancho, limited to 10 residents per home. In each home, we maintain a 1 to 5 staff to resident ratio, which allows us to provide individualized care and more personal interaction with residents. All of our staff members receive specialized dementia care training annually, as well as more general assisted living caregiver training. In addition, all staff members are medication-certified to assist residents with medications 24 hours a day.
We use the latest technology to provide our residents with the best care possible. Our online medical records system is HIPAA compliant, and our medication records system allows us to track vital signs and medication assistance as ordered by our residents’ personal physicians. We are able to track when medications are due, and when they’re given, and can easily print out medication lists for authorized family members as well as for doctor’s appointments.
We also work with geriatricians who can make house calls at the home, making it very convenient for residents and family members. We also work with a dentist that will make house calls as well. We work with multiple DME companies and can arrange for delivery and pick-up of any item. Our staff is fully trained in the set-up and use of all DME and will gladly coordinate with providers to get the needed equipment, just leave it all to us! With doctor’s orders, mobile lab and x-ray companies will provide in-home services as well, alleviating the need for travel and stress while still receiving excellent medical care.
We have a wonderful Home Nurse who works in the homes with residents and their families, develops care plans, is always willing to offer great advice, and is trained in Hospice and palliative care. One of the owners is also a Hospice nurse and we embrace palliative care values-we never want our residents to be in pain, and we’re also able to provide compassionate end-of-life care.
When we meet with a potential client, we’ll arrange a tour, and make sure to answer all questions about our homes, the services provided, and community resources that might be of interest. We recommend that you tour more than one home, to get a feel for the different environments offered at different facilities, and have the opportunity to ask plenty of questions. Moving is stressful, and our philosophy and care plans allow our residents to age in place, without the need to change facilities as a person’s health care needs change. We are committed to offering a comfortable, home-like environment where everyone from staff to residents feels part of the family.
Once you have decided Casa de Paz is the right place, we will begin the application and admission process. The first step is a professional assessment by our staff and house nurse, to determine the needs and acuity of the potential resident. We’ll meet to go over the assessment and provide information necessary to begin the move-in process and schedule a move-in date. Once the resident is settled in, we’ll work together to form a care plan which will be updated every 6 months, or any time there is a change in the resident’s health and condition. The care plan is used daily by staff and all information is logged in the electronic medical record.
We accept Long Term Care Insurance, VA Benefit Assistance, Mi Via-Self-Directed Medicaid, and private pay options. Other options may be available, please contact us for more information on methods of payment.
We are fully licensed by the NM Department of Health, NM Environmental Health Department (Food Permit), the NM Board of Pharmacy, and we have a current City of Rio Rancho Operator’s permit.
We are members in good standing of the Rio Rancho Chamber of Commerce and the NM Assisted Living Services Organization. All staff members are fully certified and attend yearly continuing education training courses and workshops and we are in compliance with all state regulations.
