PROJECT TITLE
Adult Day Services

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Senior Program administers services to Senior Citizens through three senior centers in Eddy County. In May of
2007 construction was completed for an Adult Day Care built adjacent to the Artesia Mealsite. The funds will be
used for first year operational funding for the Adult Day Care. The Adult Day Care will provide a safe place where
seniors can spend the day enjoying nutritious meals and snacks, activities guided by their preference and abilities
and socialization with other senior citizens. This can allow the seniors to remain independent as long as possible
and yet be able to go home and sleep in their own bed at night. The facility is large enough to support 42 slots,
some of which will be filled by daily individuals while some may attend on a drop in basis.
