A Life plan Community or Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) is a planned retirement community for seniors who want to live an active and fulfilling retirement, with the peace of mind of guaranteed, onsite health care services. El Castillo is a full-service CCRC that offers a long-term contract that provides independent living and continuum of care, including assisted living, nursing services, memory care and emergency assistance, all on one campus.

In exchange for a one-time entrance fee and monthly fees, you will secure a comfortable apartment home, with access to all the community’s services and amenities, as well as guaranteed access to a continuum of onsite health services.

The minimum age to move into El Castillo is 65.

The purpose of a Life Plan Community is to give you options and security. As your needs change, we will work closely with you, your physician and family members to provide services and make accommodations, or to assist you in transitioning to a higher level of care.

Yes. We have a list of people who do not yet meet our age requirements, and people who aren’t quite ready to move in. There is a fee for joining the waiting list and complete details are available from our marketing sales consultant.

Many of our residents tell us, “I wish I had done this sooner!” The best time to make these vital decisions about your future is when you’re independent and healthy. When you join us at El Castillo, you benefit from an array of activities and amenities, and have peace of mind knowing that you’ll have a comfortable home for the rest of your life, surrounded by a community of friends.

There may be tax advantages for El Castillo residents as several IRS rulings have established that a portion of Life Plan community monthly service fees are deductible as a prepaid medical expense. These health care tax deductions are only available through Life Plan communities such as El Castillo. In addition, as a Life Plan resident, you do not pay State of New Mexico gross receipts tax on El Castillo services. Speak to your tax adviser for details.

When space is available, we welcome Associate Residents (residents of the community-at-large) into our assisted living and nursing care units. Associate Residents do not pay an entrance fee, but pay monthly fees comparable to those charged at other Santa Fe facilities for the same services. In addition, Associate Residents do not pay State of New Mexico gross receipts tax on these services.
