Agapé Senior began as an assisted living facility in 1999. Today, Agapé Senior is comprised of a variety of coordinated and interrelated services designed to meet the needs of our residents as well as seniors in local communities. The supporting services at Agapé Senior were born out of the realization that many senior-related service providers with whom Agapé Senior conducted business were incapable of meeting the needs and standards of Agapé Senior on an ongoing basis. Each service that has been created under the Agapé umbrella has joined the comprehensive effort to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of our residents.
Agapé Senior proudly provides the following senior health services:
Agapé Medical Mart (Opened January 2002):
Agapé Medical Mart was established to provide medical supplies and durable medical equipment to the residents and patients of Agapé Senior. Over the years, it has expanded to provide these services to the public through three retail outlets located in West Columbia, Rock Hill, and Indian Land.

Agapé Management Services provides management and accounting services to all Agapé entities.
