Live Well in Your Golden Years UNM Health Resources for New Mexican Seniors

Compassionate, respectful care for New Mexico’s elders.

Senior Health

UNM Health is home to the only senior health center in Albuquerque. We treat patients age 75 and older who are frail, elderly and/or living with dementia. At UNM Health, you can expect compassionate care for all ages and backgrounds. All of our providers are trained in culturally sensitive care, so you will be treated with the dignity and respect you deserve.

If you or your loved one are home-bound and unable to come to our senior health clinic, our partners at the Albuquerque VA Medical Center offer home care.

Free Services for Seniors 

Our mission is to make high-quality care affordable and accessible. We offer free, nurse-managed clinics to improve seniors’ health and independence. Clinics are held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at community centers across Albuquerque.
