“Calling All Caregivers: Join AARP New Mexico for a Night of Laughs with Comedian Jesus Trejo”

AARP New Mexico is excited to welcome Albuquerque-area caregivers for a night out in celebration of National Family Caregivers Month. “Care to Laugh: A Night of Comedy and Respite Featuring Jesus Trejo,” will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 6 p.m. at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. RSVP here to attend! 


Prepare to laugh with Jesus Trejo, who is not only one of the fastest-rising names in the stand-up comedy scene, but the star of AARP’s first feature-length film, Care to Laugh. This award-winning documentary follows Trejo as he pursues his dream of becoming a successful comedian while juggling his responsibilities at home to care for his aging parents. 

As Trejo knows firsthand, caregivers need support. “We’ve heard that it takes a village to raise a kid, but it also takes a village to help someone age gracefully,” he says.

Finding balance is a struggle that many family caregivers can relate to. AARP New Mexico is here to help you connect with other family caregivers and find resources close to home.

There will be time before the show to visit with caregiving organizations, sharing resources and valuable information, have some refreshments, and meet others in the community who are providing care for loved ones.

Trejo’s take on the lighter side of family is relatable, informative, and most importantly hilarious. RSVP here to attend.
