We recognize, respect and value each older persons unique qualities. At Care for Life, we evaluate needs, locate the best resources that can maximize our clients level of independence. We empower our clients to make more informed decisions and honor their wishes and values.
Care For Life was founded in 1995 by Mary Peters. She saw a need for professional geriatric care management services to prevent hospitalization and nursing home placement in the elder population. Mary then designed Care For Life to keep Charleston’s older people safe and independent in their homes as long as possible.
Mary’s close relationships and fond memories of her great grandparents are the foundation for Care For Life’s values and services. In the past, senior family members were assisted by their children and grandchildren, but those times have changed. Care For Life’s RN’s, social workers, and home care aides develop care plans to address the problems associated with aging and chronic disease. Our practice is to follow a designated plan and work as a team with families and community resources to ensure elders stay at home.
During the past 25 years, Care For Life has cared for hundreds of older persons and their families and demonstrated a level of skill and experience that is the highest quality name in Homecare.
CARE FOR LIFE’S MISSION HAS REMAINED THE SAME FOR25 YEARS. MARY AND HER STAFF CONTINUE THEIR DEDICATION TO KEEP OLDER PEOPLE AT HOME WITH THEIR MEMORIES, SAFETY, COMFORT AND INDEPENDENCE FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE.
