New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services
In 2004, the New Mexico State Legislature created the Aging and Long-Term Services Department (ALTSD) to provide a clear and focused approach to meet the complex social, medical and behavioral needs of a burgeoning older population. As an equal partner with other cabinet-level departments, the Aging and Long-Term Services Department provides a direct voice and access to critical resources for older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers.
Services provided by the agency include:
· The Aging and Disability Resource Center
· Adult Protective Services Division
· Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program
· Aging Network organizations, funded by the Department
