Pavilion hosts Open House

[gallery link="file" order="DESC"] The Pardee Pavilion Adult Day Health Services hosted an Open House on Sunday, May 23. Interested participants, caregivers, and current participants of the Pavilion came out to meet the staff and nurses, tour the facility, and enjoyed cookies and punch during the open house celebration. Ron Comeens with Pardee Lifeline was also on hand. Raffle prizes were given away thanks to the generosity of the Pardee Health Education Center as well as free glucose screenings. If you're caring for an elderly or mentally impaired adult in your home, then you know it can be difficult to run errands, shop, or find time for your own needs. Pardee Pavilion may be just the help you’ve been looking for. Or you may know someone, a friend, a relative, a neighbor, who needs a little extra assistance. The Pavilion may be just what the doctor ordered. Stop by for a tour of the Pavilion and speak with one of their knowledgeable staff members about how Pardee Pavilion can make a difference in your life, and the life of your loved one. The Pavilion is located in Flat Rock adjacent to Blue Ridge Community College. For more information call, (828) 697-7070.
