Patsy Dillard

Executive Director

Patsy has been working in this field for 10 years. Her experience starts with an agency in Reidsville, North Carolina called Aging Disability & Transit Services of Rockingham County. Patsy was the Director of the Life Enrichment and Friendship Center for 8 years. There she found her true passion. She loves working with Senior's and Adults with Disabilities. She loves to watch them smile to see them achieve a goal, to work on a craft and to just listen to them talk about their family or a life experience. Patsy thinks there is no greater accomplishment than to be able to offer a safe, loving environment to someone that is in need of medical and social attention.

Patsy expresses, "This has been a wonderful journey and I pride myself in working to assure that Edwards Adult Day Center will provide the best possible care for the Seniors and Adults with Disabilities in the Martinsville City and Henry County areas.  I am looking forward to what the future holds!"
