2023 Wayne B. Smith 'Leading with Kindness' Awards
The annual honor is bestowed upon outstanding individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations whose gifts of time, talent, or treasure throughout the previous year have benefited older adults throughout Kentucky.

He is fondly remembered for his laughter and kindness and for never turning away a stranger in need. Wayne looked for the good in all people.

What Friends & Family Say
A very close friend of ours lives here now and we're so grateful this place exists. He's very well taken care of and loves being there. The staff is excellent and it's a good community. Clean and well kept. The surrounding campus is nice too, and it's in a decent neighborhood. We're very happy with it.
I love everything about Sayre Christian Village. All the steps that have taken and are taking to keep COVID out are truly impressive. Also, I believe their faith-based approach to care giving gives them a leg up.
I have had the pleasure of seeing the care that Friendship Towers gives to their residents. The staff truly cares for the residents and their families. They have fun, engaging activities and the residents feel a great sense of community. A wonderful place for seniors to thrive!
