Modern southwest community offers amenity-rich Senior Living

Nestled near the beautiful Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Élan Santa Monica offers exceptional care in a modern, amenity-rich community. With a goal of bringing premier Assisted Living and Memory Care services to the local area, Titan Senior Living partnered with Direct Supply® Aptura® to create a contemporary southwest feel that honors the local culture in a fresh and exciting way.

Inspired by the warm color palette of the nearby mountains, Élan Santa Monica features an array of neutral materials, like stucco, wood beams and natural stone – all with a modern twist. This high-end southwest style sets this community apart from the competition. Its contemporary vibe and amenities appeal to both prospective residents and their adult children and will continue to serve this community for years to come.
