We Love Westminster Towers:
Debbie Dyches is our Volunteer Coordinator at Westminster Towers. As her title suggests, she coordinates volunteers and interns so the residents receive all the care they need. Her favorite aspects of working at the Towers are the fantastic residents and getting to meet all the volunteers and college interns. She loves watching the interns experience Westminster Towers in all levels of care and seeing them take those experiences with them when they leave.
“We are considered the #1 intern location for Exercise Science and Family Studies.”
In 2020, Debbie was able to assist in the Health Center and she loved spending time with the residents. In this challenging time, she and our other wonderful staff members were able to become like a family to the residents.
Dinner and Lightsaber Fights
Debbie grew up nearby in Indian Land, SC. She and her husband have two kids: a son, Ryan, and a daughter, Hillary. Ryan and his wife Laura have three children named Judah, Felicity, and Naomi. Debbie and her husband were both only children, so they love that their family is getting bigger!
Debbie’s favorite thing to do with her family? Spend time with them! She enjoys everything from Sunday dinners and swimming to going on trips to Disney World and having lightsaber fights with her grandson.
“My favorite family tradition is eating too much on Sundays and holidays.”
Planting and Growing a Church
Every morning before going to Westminster Towers, Debbie likes to read the Bible, pray, and exercise. She is an ordained minister and served as a Pastoral Care Pastor for twenty years. In 2017, she became the Co-Pastor of a new church plant called Remnant Church in Fort Mill. During COVID, she and the congregation worshipped in their parking lot, socially distanced in cars or under a tent. They are currently renovating a larger facility which will be completed in June.
Debbie’s dream vacation is to stay at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. She and her family are big Disney World fans, and The Cabins would be her dream way to experience it. Debbie’s favorite hobby is swimming, which is wonderful exercise.
