Welcome…

GEM – Gentle Expert Memorycare

Thank you for your interest in GEM Adult Day Services, Inc. on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality services to both participants and caregivers.

GEM provides a positive supportive environment for adults with memory loss, physical, and mental disabilities and those in need of socialization.

Caregivers, family members, neighbors, friends…each group also has a stake in learning more about memory care and how to foster a sense of normalcy for those who still “got a lot o’ livin’ to do.”

The health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff remains our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term. 

Based on the guidance from local public health agencies, our staff will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support for our staff to successfully operate in support of our mission.

GEM operations will continue, and we will re-evaluate these measures on an ongoing basis and resume in person engagements as soon as we are able, based on public health guidelines.

During this time, GEM is available to you Mon-Sat 10- 4 pm.

For care and support: Contact Gail Sonnesso, Executive Director – 252-480-3354
