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 505-476-4912
