Co-founders Story

 

Sally Fox Bolek and Resa Remus-Stariha are both from Greenville and attended High School together.  Sally had a life-long dream of opening an Adult Day Center to help seniors continue to live at home, remain as independent as possible and have full, meaningful lives.   When her father was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, it became clear that it was time to make the dream a reality.  Resa kindly offered to be co-founder.

Danish Festival Weekend 2016, the brainstorming began.  They found an ideal building located in Greenville near the Flat River Trail.  With the help of family and friends, they were able to begin renovations.  They hired Theresa Williams-Ralph to help run the center and recruit volunteers to assist with the daily programs. Thanks to a generous grant from the Greenville Area Community Foundation, a Life Enrichment Coordinator, Becky Peak from Crystal, was added to the staff in February 2019.
