The New Mexico Caregivers Coalition (NMCC) was created to enhance and promote family and professional direct care workers, supporting their professional development and advancing issues of importance to the field of long-term and direct care. A caregiver is defined as any person who serves those who are elderly and/or disabled as their primary occupation.
We advocate for a well-trained, diverse direct care workforce, promoting education, training, benefits, wages and professional development caregivers may better serve those who are elderly and those with disabilities.
We envision a day when those who care for the most vulnerable in our society are well-trained, adequately paid, working in jobs they love and have opportunities for advancement.
