Ageing in Place with Dignity

Resource type: Research Report

Amelia AR Murphy, PhD |

This report presents the New Mexico Aging & Long-Term Services Department’s policy recommendations to advance the goal of elder economic security in the state, provide a continuum of home and community-based social and health services that meet the needs of older people, and maximise their independence to live on their own terms in their communities. These recommendations, which are based on the findings of the New Mexico Elder Economic Security Standard™ Index created by Wider Opportunities for Women (WOW), help to identify priorities for policy reforms that could improve the economic security of older New Mexicans who are too often struggling to pay for their basic living needs.

Wider Opportunities for Women is an Atlantic grantee.
