      We transferred my 95 year old mother from Cielito Lindo to Casa Cienguita in July of 2018 after interviewing with the administrator, Pierre. When we stressed during the visit that we wanted to make sure the thermal pools and exercise program in the pool was available for my mother he stated “yes of course”, twice a week. We also inquired as to the number of staff who spoke English. We were assured English was spoken, They have an exercise program 3 days a week from 10-12 and an occupational and art therapy program 2 days a week from 10-12. These are both wonderful programs and are led by wonderful contracted staff who are exceptional in their jobs. To this date, my mother (in 9 months) has never been in the thermal pools. At this time the pump is broken and there is no estimate of time as to when it will be repaired.

      I do not feel there is an adequate program on the weekends and again not enough English is spoken. The staff are not self motivated or perhaps have not been instructed in the types of programs that should take place on the weekends. Doctor Acosta, a board certified gerontologist, is at the facility 5 days a week and is wonderful. She keeps great charting as to what is going on with the residents and we are able to see this anytime. She doesn’t even have her own office and sits in the “great room” with the residents. I am grateful for her wonderful care. There is also a doctor on the weekend who is young and engaging and spends time with the residents.

      Finally, after speaking with other family members who were concerned because of the lack of outings, the pool and the high employee turn over we approached administration with our concerns. It has been a struggle and difficult but I feel that improvement is being made. We went on our first family outing 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful—ice cream cones for all….

      The hands on care of the employees is wonderful and the cleanliness of my mothers room is wonderful. To combat the problem with the lack of English, I personally employ two caregivers who are with my mother 7 days a week, 8 hours a day, but this costs in addition to the facilities charge of $3100 an additional $1400 per month. All said and done, we spend about $5000 per month

      My experience at Casa Cieneguita has been very positive. I brought my mother there for assisted living in October and the care she is receiving is significantly better than the care she was receiving in the United States. I would encourage those considering Casa Cieneguita to visit the facility, talk to the staff the residents and family members like myself before you make a judgement on the quality of their services.

      My brother, who has early-onset Alzheimer’s, has been at Casa Cieneguita for over three months. The staff is terrific, the food is great (as well as healthy), and the grounds are beautiful. The activities and various forms of therapy are creative and seem genuinely fun. The family is very pleased with the care and attention our brother is getting.

      The popularity of San Miguel de Allende as a haven for American and Canadian retirees is bringing about a boom of care for the elderly homes. Several have opened up in the past few years and one more opened six months ago at the La Cieneguita township just three miles west outside of the city.

      Entrepreneur Pierre Lepoureau says that establishing a new full time care center for the elderly is a type of business with a great future.

      “There’s a big need here for it due to the fact that there are about 10,000 people that are retired here and are in need of this type of service that we’re going to make available.”

      Mr. Lapoureau, a Cuba born exile who spent 40 years in Miami managing hospitals, makes it clear that the nursing home is not a non-profit organization and that “residents will be paying the nominal fee we’ll be charging” but, when profitable, “we will have charity cases.”

      Lapoureau came to SMA ten years ago to retire but over time he began noticing the shortage of facilities for the growing number of seniors who need to be taken care of.

      “There are about 50 beds available at the most for this type of service in adult care living facilities. And for that matter, the one we are offering is much more advanced from what we normally find in this area.”

      The project will be carried out in partnership with Dr. José (Pepe) Valencia, a well-known geriatrician who will be in charge of the medical care of residents.

      Lapoureau studied medical and hospital administration in Miami.

      It is official. La Casa Cieneguita opens at the end of May. This is the facility I have chosen for my husband with dementia after checking out the facilities offered in Ajijic and San Miguel de Allende. My criteria was to find a home environment with socializing and stimulating activities where Walter felt loved and part of a community. La Casa Cieneguita offers such a home that meets and surpasses my vision. It boasts a lush, country club setting with thermal waters on the grounds, even a Koi pond and organic garden. And the food is going to be delicious. They have hired a chef! All staff members are trained in a specific method of interacting / communicating with demented patients to promote a sense of well -being and dignity.”…
