For Those Seeking Long-Term Care:
Thank you for your interest in Agapé Senior. As you research long-term care options, I hope that you will find this website, and our new Senior Resource Center site, informative and helpful. I am convinced that you will want to know more about Agapé Senior, our values, and our vision for senior adult healthcare. Please let me briefly share with you some of my background information.
After finishing seminary at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, I spent ten years serving churches in South Carolina as a minister of the United Methodist Church. In 1993, I left the pulpit to become more involved in another ministry: the care of senior adults. After consulting with respected members of the senior-care community, I enrolled at the University of South Carolina’s Master of Health Administration program. During and following my time at USC, I worked with Lutheran Homes of South Carolina. In 1999, I left Lutheran Homes and founded Agapé Senior. Since that time, Agapé Senior has experienced burgeoning growth and expansion. Today, we are a network of companies that provide an array of healthcare and related services throughout South Carolina with over 1,200 employees. I sincerely believe our concepts in integrated health services for senior adults have been a significant contributor to our continued success.
Agapé Senior’s mission is to provide integrated health services to meet the needs of senior adults in a faith-based atmosphere. The company’s philosophy is based upon its commitment to provide the best quality care possible for members of our senior adult community. We are committed to participating actively in and around the communities we serve.
We also seek opportunities to help those who are in need of senior care but do not have the financial resources necessary. In 2004, we established the Agapé Senior Foundation with a mission of supporting the ministries of Agapé Senior through education and fund-raising. The foundation provides assistance to our senior residents whose financial resources may not allow them to remain under our care.
I invite you to avail yourself of the resources referenced in our websites and to learn more about the variety of senior healthcare solutions that are available at Agapé Senior. We are fully committed and equipped to provide the best possible care for you or your loved one.
We look forward to meeting with you soon.
