We laugh! We cook! We dance!

Three unique New Mexico homes intentionally created to care

for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia or others just needing a little extra help.

We are home, not home-like!

Vista Hermosa

Santa Fe, NM 87507

Vista Hermosa is the most recent addition to our Vista Living homes. This bungalow has a team that creates an intentional, welcoming environment and an insurmountable love for the individuals residing here.

Founded in 1998, Vista Living Care is 100% family owned. Please take a look at each of our facilities, which provide equal care but are different in their own way.

Vista Living Care comprises three homes in the state of New Mexico: two in Santa Fe (Sierra Vista and Vista Hermosa) and one in Las Cruces (Arbors). We maintain our leadership status in memory care with our cutting-edge model--internationally recognized as a superior, unique design for this special population. Honoring the whole person, we remember their past with the wisdom to understand their present. “Dementia is our business, our only business!" is another one of our mottoes.

Our days are filled with laughter, music, and healing, and not in the medical sense.

Our elders are engaged in life’s simple pleasures. Families need not worry about their loved one’s personal daily needs.

  • Housekeeping

  • Daily laundry

  • Delicious home-cooked meals

  • Private or companion sleeping rooms

  • Licensed nurses

  • Skype & Facetime calls with family

  • Assistance with bathing, hygiene, grooming, and dressing

Vista Living Care prides itself with industry-leading staff-to-resident ratios, and high staff-retention rates.

Family Care

Our connection with families is what sets us apart.

We pride ourselves in being the absolute best when it comes to caring for those living with dementia and we know that dementia affects more than just the elder. Being there for the family through the difficult journey is one of the things that gets us out of bed in the morning. Whether taking the time to share a funny moment of your loved one via text or calling to see how YOU are doing, we are committed to being your family as you cope with the difficult transitions throughout this journey.

Our Values

Intentional. Peaceful. Traditional.

Our loving homes are intentional and peaceful, traditional in values, and nontraditional in approach. They are situated on rustic, naturally landscaped properties, just minutes away from galleries, cultural sites, and the medical community. Cutting edge, homey and cozy with authentic Southwest motifs and remarkable outdoor patios and courtyards, our homes are designed exclusively to meet the needs of our elders. We are solely dedicated to the care of people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Vista Hermosa, our third home and newest addition, specializes in helping frail, non- to mild-dementia residents needing day-to-day care and reminders. “Our elders aren’t just taken care of, they’re loved” is one of our mottoes.

We honor the whole person, remembering their essence. Their lives are rich; our homes are filled with live plants, art, music, dance, comfort food, live-in pets, and laughter.

Mindful Dementia Care

Lost and Found in the Alzheimer’s Forest

Mindful Dementia Care is a book of stories and a book of love. It is a book without denial, without any papering over of the challenges that can be involved with being a caregiver, and the sadness, anger, and frustration they may bring. It is also a life-changing source of information that can revolutionize relationships with one of the most vulnerable populations in our midst.
