Aging and Long-Term Services Department
The New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services Department
(ALTSD) is dedicated to promoting the independence and dignity of elders and
individuals living with a disability. In 2004, the New Mexico State
Legislature created the Aging and Long-Term Services Department 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.
The Aging and Long-Term Services Department is an essential resource for
more than 200,000 New Mexicans every year.
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
If you suspect an adult is being abused, neglected, or exploited, call Adult
Protective Services Statewide Intake. Toll-free at 866-654-3219 or
