The Deming Luna County Commission on Aging, Inc. (COA) manages the Deming Senior and the Deming Luna County Adult Day Care Facility. The Building was named "The Robert L. Beckett Senior Complex" in honor of former Deming Mayor, Robert Beckett. The late Mr. Beckett served on the Board of Directors of the Commission on Aging for eight years, three of which he served as Chairman. For many years he played a critical role through his advocacy efforts in obtaining funding for the services and programs provided to the senior citizens of Luna County, as well as in the massive expansion of the Center performed in 2001/2002. In 2008, Mr. Beckett was named Outstanding Senior Citizen in the state of New Mexico by the Aging and Long Term Service Department.
