The New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services Department (ALTSD), Adult Protective Services Division (APS) is seeking to establish a contract for Home Care Services for its clients in all New Mexico counties with the possibility of a multi-award contract for the larger service areas. Applicants may bid on multiple counties.
These in-home services are designed for persons 18 years of age or older who have been referred to the contract provider by the ALTSD, APS Division. Select applicants will provide in-home and community services for incapacitated adults who have functional limitations that impairs their ability to provide adequately for their own care or protection. These services are designed to enhance independence and maintain the individuals safely in their communities.
The assignment of service hours is based upon assessed need of the individual with the understanding that this funding is designed to assist with those basic tasks that, without which, a recipient’s health, safety, or ability to live in the home might be compromised.
The level of funding is not intended to meet all of each individual’s care and support needs. APS contracted home care services are designed to encourage self-sufficiency and utilize the client’s current support system, if any. APS home care provides some regular in-home oversight in order to remediate abuse, neglect, or exploitation by assisting APS clients with essential tasks such as: house cleaning, home maintenance, chores, personal care and essential transportation.
