One of the ‘drums I beat” frequently on my site is learning what is a trustworthy place to gather information and to do research.
I believe that there are many senior care sites out there that do not have your best interests at heart. You’ve probably seen them, acting like a directory of services, but really, they attempt, at every turn, to funnel you into sending your personal information in, only to often times be redistributed (without your knowing) to a third party, or to the highest bidder.
I’ve always tried to make our site, Assisted Living Directory, different. One of the ways I do so is by featuring and highlighting other excellent, honest and trustworthy sites for research and information. These usually come through state-sponsored and managed agencies and sites, and often times, they are excellent and comprehensive.
For New Mexico, I recommend to our users to become familiar with the offerings on the New Mexico Aging & Long Term-Services Department. Here, you will find excellent information and support on Caregiving, Long-Term Care, Aging issues, and more.

Specifically, I’d like to steer you to their Resource Directory, which links to another state website offering a good search tool allowing users to find organizations statewide, including:
Adult Day Care
Alzheimer’s information and Support
Assisted Living Services
and so much more
Visit the Department of Aging, and the Resource Directory here:
This site, and this resource directory can serve as a great starting point to research care, or to get support. The Department of Aging and Long Term Services department is also a place you can trust to ask a question about caregiving, assisted living, or long-term care issues.
