The board of directors of Adult Care Services, Inc. (ACS), Adult Day Care Services, Inc. (ADCS) and Executive Director Yvonne Napolitano haved announced the recent purchase of a building in Cottonwood to open a third Susan J. Rheem Adult Day Center.

The property, which is the former Mingus Center, located at 636 N. Main St. in Old Town Cottonwood. was acquired Aug. 7.

"This day center has long been coming since Cottonwood has been without a day center since approximately 2006," said Napolitano. "At that time, approximately 30 individuals were served daily and it was disheartening to us that we were not in the position to assist in keeping the Eden Center adult day program open which ACS had a hand in initially starting. Since then, ACS has received ongoing calls from families and professionals to bring back quality services to that area."

Napolitano said the Prescott Valley SJRC started a van route to and from the Verde Valley to support people in the interim last February. The VA is an active referral source in that area and as an early part of the process we requested the VA safety inspector do a pre-inspection of the building.

The inspector was in agreement that the building was an ideal fit for another SJRC. Health care entities such as Verde Valley Medical Center, hospices, the VA, Alzheimer's and NACOG agencies support our endeavors and know the value that an adult day service program can bring to a population of approximately 50,000 in that area.

The 15,000-square-foot building remodel will begin in September. About 11,000 square feet will be remodeled for the day center being brought up to code under the Arizona Department of Health Services for licensure.

This will be an extensive project to include windows, doors with alarm system, bathrooms, flooring, and reconfiguration of walls, ceiling upgrades, fixtures, commercial kitchen and fire suppression system.

The remainder 4,000 square feet will be leased.

Napolitano said a compatible health care company or child care center is possibilities for leasing the space. The goal to open SJRC is early January 2014. "In the meantime, people from the Cottonwood/Verde Valley area are encouraged to register for services at the PV SJRC," she said.

The new Cottonwood SJRC program will mimic operations of SJRC Prescott and Prescott Valley including transportation services.

ADCS is the only organization in Yavapai County licensed to offer day services for adults with varying disabilities including dementia, physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities and the frail elderly.

Thank you members of the boards of ACS and ADCS. Thank you Yvonne Napolitano. You each must know as I know how proud and pleased Susan Rheem would be to know that adult day care is returning to Cottonwood and to the Verde Valley.
