Welcome to Night N Gail Assisted Living!

Night N Gail is a gorgeous, spacious home that is located in the northeast part of Albuquerque. The home is licensed for 3 and pursuing licensure for 8 elderly men or women requiring supervision and/or assistance with ADL's but not 24 hour skilled services of a nursing home.

Assistance and or supervision shall be given for ambulating, toileting, bathing, personal hygiene, dressing, medications, laundry and changing bed linens. Daily housekeeping and activities are also included in the services. Residents that are non ambulatory are welcome at NIGHT N GAIL as long as they can assist with transfer to and from the wheelchair. Residents requiring assistance with incontinence of bowel and bladder are permitted with management approval on an individual basis. Residents with short term memory loss can reside at NIGHT N GAIL as long as they have a physician order stating that assisted living is the appropriate setting for them and their needs can be met.

Residents living at NIGHT N GAIL can "age in place". This means that as their aging progresses and they require more care that they may stay at NIGHT N GAIL until "the end" provided the resident needs can be safely met. As needs change, the owner, responsible parties, the resident and the resident physician shall discuss ways to continue providing what is "best" for the resident and create a plan of care agreeable to all. This may include the resident hiring private staff to meet the additional needs the resident might develop during this transition. It is also possible that without state licensing approval or management approval that some residents may not be permitted to "age in place".

NIGHT N GAIL is a lovely, well maintained home with two large living areas, hardwood floors and large resident rooms. It is comfortable and conducive to resident safety and security with everything on one level. Ramps connect any outside area that previously had a step. The food is nutritious, plentiful and home cooked by the owner or trained staff. Three well-balanced meals are prepared and served daily with a variety of snacks offered between meals and at bedtime. No concentrated sweets, no added salt and pureed diets can be arranged for residents at no extra charge. Families are encouraged to visit and share an occasional meal with their loved one. Just call in advance.

NIGHT N GAIL is located east of Pennsylvania and south of Menaul in Albuquerque and it is close to shopping and medical facilities.
