Senior Services

Information about services for seniors in Albuquerque.

The Department of Senior Affairs provides many services to older adults. These include:

Please call the Senior Information Line at 505-764-6400 (TTY: 1-800-659-8331) for more information about any of our programs and services. Lines are open M-F, 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday calls between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be routed to 311. There is no service on Sunday. 

Age Requirements

Many of the services offered by the Department of Senior Affairs are generally designed for those ages 50 and older. Programs funded by the Older Americans Act and the Area Agency on Aging (Home Delivered Meals, Transportation, and Care Coordination) have a minimum age of 60. Some classes, trips, and services require a fee. Other services, including lunch at our meal sites, may request a donation or a nominal fee; however, no one is denied services for choosing not to contribute.

For those under 50 years of age, the Department of Senior Affairs offers a selection of services and activities through our multigenerational centers. Find a multigenerational center near you.
