Spend five minutes with Nate Huggins and you’ll understand the need for adult day care in the Mint Hill area. Spend 10 minutes with him, and you’ll likely be signed up for the upcoming golf tournament or helping the cause in some other way.
The passion he has for the adults and their caregivers is his driving force, and that determination to provide services for families has led to the recent approval of an expansion to the Blessed Assurance Adult Day Care Center.
Huggins recently broke ground on the 4,000 square foot addition to the site located on Idlewild Road. Blessed Assurance, which currently serves 48 adults from Mecklenburg, Union, Cabarrus and York Counties, will be able to serve an additional 50 when construction is completed.
Fund raising for the project continues and Coca Cola is matching all contributions dollar for dollar.
To learn more about Blessed Assurance, or to donate towards the building fund to serve Disabled Veterans, Seniors and Special Needs Adults effected by Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Diabetes, etc., visit the website at blessedadultcare.org.
