The Department of Senior Affairs offers a continuum of services designed to support Albuquerque residents as they age, from year 5 to 105! Still, our primary focus remains on helping seniors live with dignity, stay healthy, and engage with their community. 

To do this, the Department provides many services and programs for adults ages 50 and older, including social services, recreation & fitness programs, transportation, nutrition services, and volunteer programs. We also offer a variety of programming options for all ages through our two multigenerational centers.
