My name is Ashley DesMarteau, Director of Operations, and I have been exactly where you are right now. Two years ago I unexpectedly found myself looking for care for my parents and didn’t know the first place to look. Being two states away and an only child added to the pressure of finding the best choice for them. With every visit, I wondered if I should uproot my family to come take care of my aging parents. How could I suggest my parents leave the home they’ve loved for years? They worked hard to cultivate friendships and roles in their community. It didn’t seem fair to uproot anyone.
You are not alone in this journey. As part of Home Care Assistance, I get to help other families avoid this stress and heartache. Home Care Assistance proudly keeps older adults safe and happy at home. We set the standard in home care by cultivating client relationships that are rich in respect, dignity and trust.
Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of seniors in our community. This may mean working with someone who simply needs a helper or someone who needs 24 hour care as they transition home from the hospital.
Chances are you are researching us because there is a senior in your life who needs in-home care now or in the future. Did a visit with a family member, parent, grandparent make you realize they are not safe living alone? Perhaps you or a loved one have recently received an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis. Maybe you are looking for care for yourself or for your spouse. Regardless of the reason, the team at Home Care Assistance of the Grand Strand is here for you.
Thank you, Grand Strand, for making us the premier provider of home care for older adults. We are honored by the trust so many families place in us!
