Nursing Homes/Living Care Homes
As BabyBoomers are approaching retirement they are faced with aging parents and thoughts on how to care for them while still being able to fulfill and enjoy their own retirement years. After investigating their options, Boomers and the Aged themselves have come to find the several exceptional independent or assisted living, full care and end of life facilities offered in the Ajijic and surrounding areas.

The employees are well educated and highly trained to care for the elderly and their individual needs. Aside from the medical care they provide several activities to take part in including outings in the village away from the facility for those who are able to do so. The genuine thoughtfulness and natural respect for the elderly makes the Mexicans wonderful caregivers. The cost for these assisted living or nursing homes is roughly half if not less than what you would be expected to pay in North America.

Combine all these attributes to the wonderfully pleasant weather why wouldn’t someone what to spend the later years of their life here in paradise with lots of attention.
