"Provide residents of Wilkes and surrounding counties with adult day care services in a safe, peaceful and enriching environment through dedicated, compassionate, understanding and professional staff."
Adult Enrichment Services of Wilkes, Inc. doing business as The Ruby Pardue Blackburn Adult Day Health Care Center provides a safe, home-like environment for adults, which cannot remain safely at home during the day while their caregivers go to work or receives respite. The Center is carefully designed to promote a peaceful feeling that makes participants feel secure. This includes skilled nursing care and activities for adults.
Although some participants attend the Center primarily for socialization and to maintain independence, professionally trained staff are available to provide assistance with personal care; such as, ambulation, toileting, bathing, personal hygiene and eating. A full time Registered Nurse is also available for health and medication monitoring.
We are happy we can help families and caregivers by providing an alternate solution to premature nursing home/assisted living placement and/or caregiver burnout. While many of the Center participants are elderly, the Center welcome young and middle aged adults with developmental disabilities as well as those who may have suffered a stroke, traumatic brain injury or early onset dementia. The Center does not discriminate in opportunities to serve based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin or any other characteristics.
