FARMINGTON — Beehive Homes is planning to build an independent and assisted living facility with housing for memory loss patients in the Shea Heights subdivision in east Farmington.

Once built, it will be the fifth senior living facility Beehive Homes operates in Farmington.

The senior living provider is in the process of purchasing less than five acres of land that is currently bank owned. The Shea Heights subdivision is near the junction of N.M. Highway 516 and Mickey Drive.

Regional director Nathan Manning said the facility will be unique in Farmington and for Beehive Homes because it will include independent living condos, as well as an assisted living facility and a memory loss facility.

“It will give people a sense of independence while gaining a community,” Manning said.

Having the independent living condos at the same location as the assisted living and memory loss facilities will enable patients to move into assisted living or memory loss housing if needed, he said.

While the independent living clients will have their own condos, Manning said there will be people on site to clean, and a community center will offer those clients one meal a day. Tenants also will have the opportunity to rent the community center for gatherings.

Manning said Beehive Homes already operates two assisted living homes in Farmington and two facilities to care for patients with memory loss.

Manning said Beehive Homes hopes to start construction on the new facility during the first quarter of 2019. More information can be found at assistedlivingcarenm.com.
