Special memory care units are housed in Assisted Living Facilities for Adults (ALFs) that must meet additional requirements relating to care coordination, staffing, employee training, documentation, security, and other provisions. The New Mexico Department of Health, Division of Health Improvement, Health Facility Licensing and Certification Bureau licenses and regulates ALFs.
