Ruth Sheets Participant Application 2017The Ruth Sheets Center is a safe place for older adults who need assistance with daily activities and care but do not need full-time placement in a rest home or nursing home. We provide a safe and friendly environment that allows family members to work or take respite from their caregiving duties, and we can meet both short and long term care needs.
We also provide supervision, activities, social interaction with others, nutritious meals, and snacks. Families have found that participants’ involvement in such a stimulating environment during the day allows for better rest at night. Our health care program includes assessments and routine monitoring of vital signs and can communicate with other healthcare professionals such as doctors, physical therapists, and social workers to optimize participant care.
We are a non-profit, state licensed Social/Health combination model adult day program. The Ruth Sheets Center is accredited by the NC Department of Health and Human Services Division of Aging and Adult Services. Our staff is required to attend professional certification and continuing education programs on First Aid, CPR, Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, and other progressive conditions.
The Sheets Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, and we are conveniently located in downtown Raleigh inside Edenton Street United Methodist Church. Learn more. There are many ways to support the Ruth Sheets center such as donating, volunteering and attending our annual Red Rose Benefit. View our center brochure.
