Just about 30 minutes north of the U.S.-Mexico border, the small New Mexico town of Deming provides a pleasant retirement location for seniors who enjoy the unique visual appeal of the American Southwest. According to U.S. Census data, a remarkable 19.3% of Deming’s 13,880 residents are 65 years of age or older, notably higher than the U.S. average of 16.5%. While Deming’s location does give it long, hot summers — the average high is around 90 degrees — the Southwest’s low humidity keeps the area pleasant, and Deming winters are exceptionally short and mild.

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 found that the average monthly cost of homemaker services in Deming is $3,457, with the monthly cost of home health aide services averaging $3,695. Those prices make Deming approximately $1,000 cheaper per month than other U.S. cities for equivalent services. Elsewhere in the nation, homemaker services average $4,481, and home health aide services average $4,576.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Deming, so data for the closest city, Las Cruces, was used.

Deming Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Deming:

Deming Luna County Senior Citizens Center

Address: 800 South Granite Street, Deming, New Mexico 88030
Phone number: (575) 546-8823

The wide variety of programs for the area’s elderly offered by this senior center include transportation assistance for shopping-, grooming- and health-related trips, congregate meals that give seniors an opportunity to enjoy food in the company of peers, and an adult day care program that provides respite for primary caregivers. Most services are for Deming residents aged 60 and up; some require doctor’s referrals.

Senior Companion Program

Address: 800 South Granite Street, Deming, New Mexico 88030
Phone number: (575) 546-8824 

Organized and run by the Luna County SCC, the Senior Companion Program puts volunteers 55 years of age and older in touch with seniors who have limitations that keep them from accomplishing basic tasks of daily living. The focus is on active seniors helping homebound seniors retain as much independence as possible. Income requirements for the program apply, but a volunteer stipend is available; companions may perform up to 20 hours of service per week.

New Mexico Aging and Disability Resource Center

Run by New Mexico’s Aging and Long-Term Services Department, this resource center helps the state’s seniors find help with paying for prescription drugs through the MEDBANK program, weigh options for long-term care through the center’s counselors and assistance coordinators and develop a better understanding of insurance benefits for which they may be eligible, among other services.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.

Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed.
