Our History

Aristocrat_03The Aristocrat and Adobe assisted living and memory care communities in Las Cruces and Alamogordo are part of a second-generation family owned and operated business, founded in 1970. The owners are highly experienced in the senior housing and healthcare segments in southern New Mexico, first starting in the skilled nursing facility business in 1980.

In addition to owning and operating three assisted living communities, we own Casa del Oro Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Las Cruces, which is operated by Genesis Adobe-Assisted-Living-05Healthcare, LLC. In 1991, we started Mountain Shadows Home Care, Inc., which is now among the largest locally owned home health care agencies in the State, serving hundreds of clients. An affiliated company operates pre-school and child development centers in Las Cruces.

The companies together employ some 500 people at several locations in Las Cruces, Alamogordo, Anthony and Deming. Our decades of experience allow us to deliver a gracious living environment and comprehensive care to our assisted living residents. This care comes with an attention to detail that only local ownership can offer.

Why Choose the Aristocrat?

There are a number of options in assisted living in Las Cruces and the surrounding communities. In making this important decision for yourself or a loved one, there are many factors to consider.

However, if you desire:

  • Local ownership with decades of experience
  • An unmatched location with the largest resident rooms in the area
  • The highest-quality care delivered with the latest technology

You should consider the Aristocrat.

Local Ownership & Decades of Experience
The Aristocrat is a locally owned company and has been in the senior-housing business in Las Cruces since 1980. Many of the assisted living options in Las Cruces are large facilities, owned by out-of-state investors and managed by out-of-state executives. With the Aristocrat, you have the advantage of local ownership by an experienced family with deep roots in the community. The owners are frequently on the premises and are always available to you. While the Aristocrat is locally owned and operated, you’ll still receive the best and most advanced care.

Unmatched Location
The Aristocrat is on Claude Dove Drive in Las Cruces, in a quiet residential area next to Hillrise Elementary School, just off Telshor Boulevard. The location has all the advantages of Las Cruces’ east side — less than a mile from both Memorial Medical Center and Mountain View Regional Medical Center, and even closer to major shopping areas. Many other assisted living facilities in Las Cruces are located on noisy, busy thoroughfares in commercial districts. Many of those are large, multi-story complexes that are difficult to get around in, but the Aristocrat is a single-story building with easy access to common areas, and resident rooms located in quiet hallways. At the Aristocrat, you are part of a neighborhood but close to the commercial services you need.

Largest Resident Rooms
The resident rooms at the Aristocrat are some of the largest at any facility in Las Cruces, averaging almost 500 square feet. All of the rooms are newly refurbished, and include private bathrooms and kitchenette areas. The Aristocrat has larger rooms available for couples as well. Click here for a photo tour of the rooms.

Highest-Quality Care
What sets the Aristocrat apart is the people and the high-quality care they provide. Many of the caregivers have worked at the Aristocrat for years, and all are devoted to their work. The Aristocrat has continuous in-service training for the staff, including direct instruction and practice, as well as the latest online training technology. In addition, the Aristocrat has a full-time licensed nurse on staff Monday through Friday. Many other facilities simply offer part-time nursing services, if that. The nurses at the Aristocrat get to know the residents and their families, and understand each person’s individual medical needs. As a result, even for residents with more serious medical conditions, the Aristocrat remains an option when other facilities may not be.

Latest Technology
The Aristocrat has invested in the latest technology. For example, the Aristocrat is one of the few assisted-living facilities that has an electronic medication-management system. This system enables caregivers to dispense medications accurately and in a timely manner to the residents, including confirmation of the resident’s identity by photograph on a laptop computer or iPad, and maintains an electronic record of all medications. There is also a personalized resident assistance system. If a resident requires assistance anywhere in the facility, or even outside on the grounds, all they have to do is push the button on a pendant necklace to summon immediate help.
