Is Divine Destiny Adult Care (DDAC) important to Johnston County?
- to the clients who receive care throughout the week
- to their caretakers who go to work knowing that their loved one is in capable hands
- to the staff who are called to care for the needs of DDAC clients
Each DDAC staff member has personal experience providing care to a physically or cognitively impaired individual.
DDAC is the only facility in Johnston County that provides services to cognitive as well as physically impaired adults.
Has Divine Destiny Adult Care been recognized as an important resource in the community?
Our client population doubled between October and November of 2013.
Representatives of the Veteran’s Administration inspected our facility to determine if it met their specifications to certify DDAC for the placement of the men and women who fought for our country. Currently, we are correcting the issues noted in preparation for caring for members of the armed services.
Thanks to Lowe’s Heroes, the garden portion of DDAC’s proposed Outdoor Living Oasis is a reality. We now have fresh veggies and flowers growing just outside the door! Our garden is a demonstration of Lowe’s “employees’ willingness to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty” to make DDAC a more attractive place for our clients and our staff.
What services does Divine Destiny Adult Care provide?
We understand and teach sign language.
DDAC provides respite services that are equal to or greater than what can be offered by family members at home.
A support group is available for family members and friends of DDAC clients.
