Quick Guide to Senior Services
In partnership with the Lovelace Senior Plan, we are pleased to introduce the 2011-2012 Quick Guide publication which offers a wealth of information organized around key services and resources in our community that are helpful for seniors and family caregivers throughout the Albuquerque area.
Many of the Department of Senior Affairs' programs have a minimum age requirement of 50 to participate. Some of our other programs, including home-delivered meals, transportation, care coordination, senior day services, which are funded by the Older American's Act, have a minimum age of 60.
