Nervous you won’t make friends? Unlikely! Afraid you’ll have to give up your hobbies? Not a chance. Get a glimpse into our community programming and what life is like living here by checking out our Facebook page. We frequently share what residents have been doing to stay active, involved, and living life to the fullest.

This month, residents are making stamps! First, by drawing an image, transferring it to the linoleum block, then carving out either the positive or negative impression. They have been using these stamps to decorate cards or paper as well as aprons that we can then use in our cooking class👩‍🍳

Memory Care residents learned how to make homemade pizzas on #NationalPepperoniPizzaDay! They had so much fun rolling out the pizza dough, picking out their toppings, and then preparing it for the pizza oven! They definitely created some mouthwatering masterpieces😋🍕

Hint: Paradise was his first stomping grounds, and has a significant celebration on the horizon 🎂 🧡🖤

My Mother, of Las Vegas, Nevada, has been living and thriving at Las Soleras in Santa Fe since July! The place, people and pricing are more than what we could have ever expected, and I am confident any person fortunate enough to live there will have the same experience as us! With the personal touch of Peter Godeschalk, there is no other place I want my Mom to live, and fortunately she agrees! Thank you, Las Soleras.
