About Us at Seniors First Home Care
As we grow older, everyone will be touched in some way by the issues of elder care. It is a never-ending maze of doctors, specialists, health care choices, hospice, estate planning, benefits and stress. You find yourself asking so many questions, none of which has an easy answer. How do you know if your parent needs an assisted living facility or skilled nursing care, or even what the distinctions between those two levels are? How do you know if your parent needs end-of-life care from hospice? Can you provide adequate care in the home without having to make a move to a facility? How do you convince your parent that it’s not safe for him to drive anymore? How do you protect the family assets while maintaining eligibility for government benefits? How do you pay for it all?
At Seniors First Home Care, we understand what it takes to care for your aging parent. We offer a selection of services for senior care, tailoring our options to meet the needs of families who need professional non-medical assistance in the home, as well as those families who want to learn how to care for a parent themselves.
If you need help in caring for an aging parent or other family member, call Seniors First Home Care at 803-358-8315. It will be an honor to assist you.
"I remember thinking when I was a child how lucky I was because my parents were older. My father was 55 years old when I was born, so my parents were a bit older than most of my peers. It was a blessing to have the privilege of wonderful parents who taught me so much and set an incredible example for me. And, I hope, I turned out to be a blessing for them, as I had the honor of caring for them in the last years of their lives.
I've always felt the calling to senior care. After writing my book, The Caregiver's Training Program, I thought perhaps that was all I was supposed to do. But God had better plans and in 2011, I followed the call and opened Seniors First Home Care with my retirement account. It was a huge step out in faith, but over the past several years, it has proven to be a tremendous blessing. We are able to help seniors stay in their homes and even assist when families need help at facilities or sitting with a loved one in the hospital. My pledge was always to give our best to your family, each and every day."

They're dedicated to providing the highest quality client care and a dynamic working environment for all.
By 2025, the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics project there will be almost 50 million persons over 65 and not in the labor force – about twice the number there was in 1995. By that time, the population in 39 states will be over 65 – now only true for the state of Florida.
The fastest growing segment of the U.S. workforce began reaching retirement age in 2014, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. For many Americans, life at 40, 50 or even 60 years old will include care for an aging parent or relative.
