NCNMEDD_Non-Metro Area Agency on Aging Senior NutritionVISTA
Non-Metro Area Agency on Aging (NMAAA) oversees comprehensive service delivery of community and home-based services in 32 of New Mexico’s 33 counties. Our goal is to assist seniors in the state of New Mexico with maintaining their independence and dignity. NMAAA is located in Santa Fe. This VISTA project will serve rural, low-income seniors to prevent food insecurity by formalizing a network of service providers including a referral and follow up system between hospital discharge planners, healthcare providers, and community-based organizations. The VISTA volunteer will establish a pilot project by selecting the geographic area, establishing a network of providers, build the follow up and referral protocols, and other items as needed. The VISTA volunteer will work closely with the NMAAA nutritionist, senior center providers, and other partners to launch this project. Work will include travel, networking, and professional development in related subject areas.
