Family Caregiver Center of New Mexico
Position Overview Family Caregiver Center of New Mexico seeks a Care Navigator to work with family caregivers in our community. A family caregiver can be a spouse, partner, sibling, adult child, parent, chosen family, neighbor, or friend who provides ongoing emotional and/or physical support for someone with a chronic or disabling condition. This might include a serious illness, a chronic disease, an intellectual or developmental disability, or a serious mental illness. Anyone can be a family caregiver, no matter one’s gender, income, age, employment, or geographic distance from the person they are caring for. The Care Navigator will provide individualized support to help caregivers access community resources to meet their specific needs. The Care Navigator will take the time to understand each caregiver’s situation, help brainstorm solutions, and create caregiving and respite care plans.
