Compadres Senior Center

​Compadres senior day program is one way Adelante is providing options for families and seniors who want to avoid placement in a nursing home for their loved ones, and who prefer flexible, community-based senior activities in Albuquerque. We offer seniors 55 years and older an opportunity to get out of their homes, take part in interesting activities, and explore the community. Seniors taking part in the day program can live in Adelante’s assisted living homes or with their own family.

If you’re looking for full-time senior assisted living options, Adelante’s assisted living facilities provide top-notch care.

Compadres Senior Center Service


On-site activities at Compadres are focused on three activities proven to help seniors maintain their mental and physical wellbeing as long as possible – fine arts, gardening, and exercise. Compadres includes group and individual senior activities in Albuquerque like computers, low-impact exercise, music, movies, games, working in the onsite garden, fine arts, crafts, seasonal activities, and books or newspapers read by staff.

Compadres also is a jumping off point to getting seniors out into the community. We visit community centers, go shopping, and attend cultural and recreational events.

Some of the benefits of gardening for seniors can be found here:

Service Details

Compadres is staffed by caring people who have been trained carefully and who have passed background checks. Medication assistance and some nursing services are also available. 

Adelante currently accepts private pay, DD Waiver, and Mi Via funding. Pricing is dependent on the needs of the elder to be supported. 

This is a Monday through Friday day service. Families may utilize Compadres for respite for a home caregiver, or have their loved one attend part-time or full-time on a scheduled basis.
