I have been bringing my mom to the Ruby Pardue Day Care Center for a year now. She can be a very demanding person, but the staff and volunteers have worked so well with her, her attitude has really changed. She has lots of friends there, and every morning she does not want to be late.
I can’t name everyone at the center, but they are all a God send. I can’t thank them enough for the work they all do, and for the change in my mom. They have all been a blessing to my mom, my dad, and me.
Thank you all,
Frances Cleary - Daughter of Ruth Anderson

To Whom It May Concern
The Ruby P Blackburn Adult Day Care is a valuable organization to Wilkes County. I am so very thankful for their services. My relationship with the Center began a year ago when I realized it was no longer a safe situation for my mother with Alzheimer's to remain unattended during the day while I worked.
Words literally cannot describe how I feel about this Day Care Center.
Not only is the Center a benefit for myself, utilizing it for respite for the on-going care of my mother, but also, my mother has made friends, participates in the activities which I know keeps her mind active, and she so enjoys the Bible studies and music offered weekly. Every evening when I pick mom up I will ask how her day went and she always answers it was good, and they fed us a good meal too. Some of the activities include crafts, of which I value greatly. These are treasures I will have to keep of what my mother had made.
During this past year, I have grown to know the staff of the Day Care Center and see firsthand how they are not only knowledgeable in the care of those entrusted to their care, but, this staff treats each individual in my opinion as their own family member. I see such care, love and relationship building every time I walk into the Center. The staff of the Center have been beneficial to me when I struggle with a new issues of the Alzheimer's disease and give me insight or even information to access to know how to approach the new stages as mom's disease progresses.
My mother and I are blessed every day we have the opportunity to utilize the Day Care Center.
