Guide connects families to important resources that support older adults.

The City of Albuquerque Department of Senior Affairs has released its 2022 Annual Quick Guide to Senior Services. The guide provides valuable community resources of the most recent information focused on supporting older adults. In addition to Senior Affairs programs and services, you will also find information on other City programs and departments, non-profit organizations, and other government agencies including county, state, and federal services.

“This guide provides valuable community resources that are beneficial, no matter where someone is on the aging spectrum or regardless of the extent of their needs,” said Anna Sanchez, Director of Senior Affairs.  “Many families, law enforcement officers and first responders look to the Quick Guide to help connect individuals with services that many didn’t know were available.”

To continue meeting the evolving needs the Quick Guide serves, the publication has progressed over the past 32 years, since its first edition. This year’s updated guide features important new additions such as immigrant & refugee resources, intercultural and multicultural engagement information, assistance information for grandparents raising grandchildren, and even pet resources.

“From a health equity perspective, access to vital resources are important for our senior population,” said Michelle Melendez, Director for the Office of Equity and Inclusion. “We’re proud to see how far this resource guide has come to include the many diverse communities that exist in our city.”
