We all know this time of the year is special for so many reasons. Brinkley Walser Stoner attorneys, Bradley Hunt and Drew Nelson, share with you some of their favorite things about the holidays. From Bradley Hunt: Favorite holiday movie? Die Hard – some say this is not a Christmas movie, but I consider it one. 2. Favorite holiday song? Merry Christmas from the Family. 3. Share a funny Christmas memory. The very first Christmas I was married to my wife, Carrie, we spent the holiday with her parents in Virginia. I either had food poisoning or the norovirus. Worst 48 hours of my life. 4. What is most important to you about the holidays? Being able to unwind and unplug and spend quality time with my family. The best part, of course, is spending Christmas morning with my two sons. It is nice for about 10 minutes, then total chaos. From Drew Nelson: Share a funny Christmas memory. I snuck into the living room and opened all my presents from Santa when I was eight years old. This happened before my parents woke up. I don’t think they have ever forgiven me. 2. Does your family have a special holiday recipe? My grandad’s famous chocolate peanut butter balls! 3. Would you rather be surprised by a gift or know what you are getting?

“A Home Away from Home” for the Davidson Community

“A Home Away from Home” for the Davidson Community

By Ryan McNeill, Attorney  As we near the end of another year, it is hard to believe that a global pandemic has completely changed the way we interact with our friends, families, and loved ones. One thing that has not changed is the continued commitment and support The Life Center of Davidson County offers to those who need it the most. The Life Center of Davidson County provides quality care for older and impaired adults. Its doors temporarily closed in March 2020 in the wake of the dramatic upheaval brought about by the coronavirus pandemic and the organization paused services for seven weeks to develop a plan to safely serve one of the highest at-risk populations. On May 4, 2020, The Life Center reopened with additional safety protocols that allow them to remain the “home away from home” their clients and caregivers have come to expect. This pandemic has increased the need for caregiver support beyond the doors of The Life Center as people are more socially isolated and financially limited. To expand services during this uncertain time, The Life Center applied for and received CARES Act funding to provide additional support to older and impaired adults and their caregivers.  The CARES Act funds can be used for individuals needing day health services as well as for caregiver support.  With more families working and schooling from home, the need for respite care for older and impaired adults is increasing. Caregiver support services available are: Assistive and technical devices (Adaptive equipment, animatronic pets, hearing aids and table-type devices for communication); personal protective equipment (Gloves, Clorox wipes, Lysol and hand sanitizer);...

Supporting Our Community

By David Inabinett At the start of 2020, no one could have predicted that the entire world would be in the midst of a global pandemic. Nine months later with mass layoffs, major brands, and companies going out of business, and new rules for interacting socially, there are a lot of things that are uncertain. One thing that is certain is that our community needs our help more than ever. As a law firm, we are committed to championing organizations that uplift and strengthen our local community. To continue doing our part, here are some organizations that we support and that we encourage you to consider supporting also. ARC of Davidson County The Arc of Davidson County is a local chapter of The Arc of North Carolina and The Arc of the United States. It was founded in 1964 with a goal to “Secure for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to choose and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work and play.” For over 50 years, The Arc of Davidson County has helped countless individuals, families, and organizations improve the lives of those with disabilities.   Communities in Schools Big Toy Day was canceled this year, and Communities in Schools of Lexington/Davidson County was negatively impacted. The community-based organization provides much-needed programs that offer one-on-one support, mentoring, and a variety of initiatives that help at-risk youth with basic needs in our community. Communities in Schools operates in 24 schools across Davidson County and Lexington City School Districts. Now that North Carolina K-12 students are attending school at home or in a hybrid...
