Concepts and operations of group living facilities for seniors, such as Independent Living Facilities with services, Assisted Living Facilities, Nursing Homes, and Rehabilitation Facilities are relatively new in Mexico. Certification is through the Ministerio de Salud. Nor are there many separately designated facilities in areas such as San Miguel. Hospice provides in-home palliative care to the dying as well as nursing services to the seriously ill.
There is a membership association of retirement facilities, AMAR, with the mission to “serve as a mouthpiece and an advocate regarding the needs, issues, well-being and significant contributions of retirees to the systems and institutions of Mexico”.
