Relay For Life

Relay For Life was held Friday, May 19, at the WNC Ag Center from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m.  There were 11 teams and 225 team members with over 100 participants from Pardee. 300 survivors walked the first two laps of the event with their loved ones joining in on the second lap.   The annual event raised $147,000 and $44,000 was raised by Pardee alone. The teams raised money by holding 5k runs, dog washes and various sales and raffles. Thank you to all of the Relay For Life participants and those who helped raise money for this wonderful event.

Taking a moment to say thanks-Pardee Home Care

Pardee Home Care  recieved another kind message from a patient that we would like to share with you. "The services I recieved were excellent.  Particularly, I want to express my appreciation for the help given to me by Mike Johnson, RPT.  Mike's sustained interest in helping me manage long-term pain from surgery (third replacement on the same knee joint) was extraordinary.  His patience with me and my complaints were so very much appreciated.  I had to be in rehab care for six weeks when he was assigned to me.  I was a most difficult assignment for him, and he challenged at every turn, but provided great care." -Barbara A.
