Stillwater Center Honors Caregivers & Nurses

Ask Ruther Mitchell why she enjoys being a caregiver at Stillwater Center in Dayton and you will immediately see a smile on her face.  “The residents keep me here.  They are my family. I love being a habilitation provider,” says Mitchell.  It is that love and passion that helped Mitchell through one of the most difficult times in her life.  Last year, she was diagnosed with lung cancer and was off work for nine months.  “I missed these residents and their parents so much.  They have always been very good to me.  Cancer is not going to get me.  I will be here to care for my family.”  Next year, Mitchell will celebrate 20 years of employment at Stillwater Center.

Ruther Mitchell was one of dozens of Stillwater Center caregivers and nurses who were honored on Friday, September 16, 2011 at Stillwater Center, 8100 N. Main Street in Dayton.   

Stillwater Center is a home for children and adults who are residents of Montgomery County, have the most severe and profound intellectual disabilities, are physically challenged and/or have significant medical needs.  Residents’ services include habilitation; nursing; recreation; physical, occupational, and speech therapy; nutrition; and social services.
