Re-energize your life!

Many of us have fond memories of growing up in a neighborhood where everyone knew each other, watched out for each other, felt comfortable and safe. This is why we have included “NEIGHBORHOOD” in our name. Recapture this wonderful part of your past.

At The Neighborhood in Rio Rancho, you will make new friends in your new neighborhood. The community will become your neighborhood – with dining, entertainment, fitness programs and social interaction. Including a long-term care plan.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

The Neighborhood is a Life Plan Community designed to offer more than one level of care on a single campus. Active, independent living for those who want a sense of community and connection with neighbors in a maintenance-free lifestyle, and Supportive Care – for those who need assistance with activities of daily living.

There are two Art Gallery’s at The Neighborhood.  They proudly feature the artwork created by Neighborhood residents on a regular basis.  A reception with refreshments is held to open each new exhibit and to introduce featured artists.

Several residents have four legged family members and The Neighborhood made sure to include a Dog Park when it was built.  There’s plenty of sunny New Mexico days for canine frolicking at the dog park.

Each October, one of New Mexico’s most popular events takes to the skies – Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta. The parent company of The Neighborhood, Haverland Carter LifeStyle Group, is a proud sponsor and residents enjoy breakfast and balloons at their own corporate tent, located right next to the field.

Holidays are also shared with new friends at The Neighborhood, making new memories and – at times – new holiday traditions. In a community where new friendships are made everyday, sharing different holiday occasions together means so much to many of The Neighborhood’s residents.
