April 2017 Update
Spring Is Here!
I want to take the time to thank our wonderful residents and families, who continue to be our best advertisement. As I am out in the community talking with people, I hear that our La Posada families continue to rave about the care their loved one gets in our facility. Word of mouth is by far our best advertisement for La Posada Assisted Living. It has brought us several new residents that need our care. Thank you so much for spreading so many positive words about our facility I am truly grateful. We take our job very seriously and always want to strive for excellence.

We recently celebrated with two of our residents who reached milestones in their marriages. Late in February, Joe and Therese had their 60th wedding anniversary party here at La Posada Assisted Living.
In March, the residents were invited to join with Arnold and Honey as they celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary. We congratulate both of these couples and wish them many more years together.
As Activities Coordinator, I always try to plan activities that are meaningful and that the residents enjoy. Because of a survey I took after the first of the year and the popularity of our social hour, we now have social hour two times a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. I have also reached out to some of our local talent here in Las Cruces and have found some musicians who are more than willing to perform for our residents. They offer a wide variety of musical styles that the residents enjoy. Along with our travel DVD’s, Saturday Matinees and the other activities planned throughout the month, my goal is to keep everyone engaged and give them something to look forward to. Family members are always welcome to join in any activity with your loved ones.
Things to Know
With additions to our family, I want to remind everyone of a couple of things to make your visit here as enjoyable as possible.
- You can visit your family members anytime. After hours use the call button at the right of the door to let the staff know you are here. As soon as they can confirm who you are, you will be buzzed in.
- You are welcome to eat with your loved one at any of our meals. We do request that you let us know a full meal in advance. Meal tickets can be purchased at the reception desk during regular hours, after hours or on weekends please see the kitchen staff.
If you watch KFOX, you will recognize Jean. She has become the face of La Posada Assisted Living in our advertising campaign. We are truly thankful to her for being willing to help us get the word out to the public about our assisted living facility. Inquiries are up as more and more people hear about us. We currently have 13 residents.
