Compassionate, Reliable Care and Companionship at Home Serving Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties

Nearly 90% of seniors prefer to continue living at home according to national surveys! Saying goodbye to familiar surroundings and the comfort and security of home is not always necessary for a senior. Home Instead Senior Care, founded in 1999, is Charleston’s trusted provider of nonmedical care givers, offering a variety of services to assist seniors in continuing to live at home independenly. We also assist seniors while they are in a hospital, or living in a care facility, and we provide similar care giving services there.

From a few hours a day twice a week, up to 24 hours seven days a week, including weekends and holidays, we assist residents in the Greater Charleston area. Our CAREGiversSM are skilled in companionship, personal care, reducing the risk of falling, and chronic illness assistance including arthritis and Alzheimer’s care. Our care givers also provide light housekeeping and incidental transportation (always accompanied) for doctor appointments and errands.

Our care givers are insured and bonded. Typically, our care givers become “best friends” with their clients, as they are caring and compassionate people. Additionally, they are well trained in basic care giving, personal care, dementia assistance and safety. Many take additional classes in advanced care giving and then complete our nationally renowned course in Alzheimer’s training. The same care giver stays with each client and often a close friendship develops. Quality care is also assured by our Licensed Practical Nurse on staff, and the availability of our leadership 24/7.
Let us help you or your family member live the independent life you want, safely and comfortably with compassionate and reliable care. Please call us at 571-3000 with any questions or to arrange for your free, no obligation in-home appointment.
