In Brief

Nursing to lead caregiver system development

The UNM College of Nursing will serve as the lead agency in developing a local caregiver support system.

More than $67,000 in funding from the City of Albuquerque and the Bernalillo County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) has been awarded to the college for a six month period.

In the past ten years, New Mexico has seen a decrease in birth rates and increase in life span meaning more families are facing the challenge of caring for aging loved ones.

Because of this growing need, Congress passed legislation authorizing $125 million to establish a New Family Caregiver Support Program as part of the Older Americans’ Act.
