Governor Susana Martinez toured a healthcare facility in Las Cruces Wednesday that cares for people with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. The Haciendas at Grace Village in Las Cruces is expected to create about 45 new jobs when it is fully operational early next year.
As part of today’s tour, Martinez also talked about the State Alzheimer’s Plan she unveiled in August. Martinez is creating a new position that will be dedicated to coordinating services, research, and public awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Martinez wants to provide help and support to family caregivers who often feel isolated and alone.
Martinez says more than 31,000 New Mexicans have Alzheimer’s disease and the number is expected to increase to 43,000 by 2025.
“This new position will allow for better communication and more collaboration between all the organizations and individuals already working with people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Too often, we hear that families don’t know where to turn or what to do next when they get a diagnosis,” said Martinez. “Families, who often face this terrible disease in isolation, will know that they are not alone, and that there is a clear path for help.”
